  • Friendly staff and great beer. We didn't stay on the tasting patio but it was a wonderful touch to this cheerful local brewery. Would be interested to come back during one of the brewery tour/5 course meal events they host during the summer. Ra ra Rasputin - solid stout with a very interesting whiskey back. A bit too strong for me to drink warm but enjoyable none the less. 4/5 Cereal killer - still drinking my half growler but this is an easy beer to love. Even my non beer drinking wife likes it. A great oatmeal Stout. 5/5
  • I love Big Spruce! Great beer and friendly staff!
  • No parking available if more than four cars there. Beer is great but could not get into brewery to sample or buy. Only had it in local restaurants. Should consider making adequate parking lot for customers.
  • Loved our time with Big Spruce, both in the taproom and on the road. We look forward to visiting you again. Cheers!
  • Fun spot for a nice brew. Tend to be on the hoppier, more bitter side. Also has a fantastic food truck, music, patio, picnic tables, and sand box.

Most of the town's quaint inns and bed and breakfasts line Margaree Road.
