They make their own beer! Right at the back!

See all that equipment in the background? When they decided to call this place a brewery, they weren’t kidding. You want local beer? Then you can’t get more local than 75 feet away.

Fun Fact: This place used to be a garage ages ago -if you look at the entrance you will see it. Then in 2008, it used to be a really funky art gallery which I used to visit from time to time and whose site still points to the same location? Odd. Then the art moved out and in came the truckloads worth of distillery equipment.  

Although the option of beers may change, a safe bet would be to expect Ales, Brown Ales along with some IPAs and seasonal flavours. In the end, you might be pleasantly surprised! There are different flavours with varying alcohol levels so there should be something for everyone! The menu is good if quirky and a bit pricey but remember, keep your eyes on the price… errr, beer. 

Quick soliloquy: The small bathroom is upstairs, make sure to not pick a table near it. Stick to the main floor. Just sayin’. 

One great thing worth noting is their albeit smaller patio, although obviously seasonal, you will find it to be a great place to spend an afternoon with friends or traveling companions. Just keep in mind, the patio can get a bit popular during the Summer and it might get busy. Reservations might be useful.
