  • Mike and his staff are kick ass. They had lots of good adevice on lcoal places to check out. The beer was great we really liked their pilsner. Can't wait to catch you guys on our next trip out here. Holler if you guys make more of those flags
  • Great beer and cool space, came by for YLS cornhole tournament and really enjoyed it.
  • Not a lot going on here, but the bartenders were awesome and super friendly and chill. Drink prices were very very good and their beer and the others they try are all delicious. Never seems busy there but I guess there isn't much to look at or do. But, definitely will go back for the really good beer!
  • Great beer and a nice taproom/patio area.
  • Great beers. Great atmosphere. We will be back!
