Taproom Details

We only have a few rules: have fun. Be respectful. Enjoy the people around you. We’re brewing beers that bring people together. We can’t wait to see you at our place.

Draft Sizes: Our beers are available as tasters or full pours. We also have 32oz. crowlers and 67oz. growlers available for to-go only. Higher % ABV and barrel aged beers are limited to 13oz. pours. The remainder are served in 16oz. pours.

Food: We have some assorted snacks for you to munch on including artisan, locally made breadsticks and pretzels. However, feel free to bring your own little feast, carry out, or even have some food delivered. We have some menus behind the bar for local restaurants, so come up and ask for one if you’re hungry!

Parking Info: Feel free to park both in front of and behind the building, but please do not park in front of garage doors. Additionally, please do not park along the side of the building, as passing cars and food trucks need that space. Thank you!

The Barrel Room

It’s where big parties feel cozy and comfortable. It’s where fancy parties are fun. With a variety of seating conditions, a private bar and dedicated bartender, a 4-tap draft menu, and your own bags set, it’s an ideal spot for up to 175 people to have a night they won’t forget.

Maximum 40 people

The Loft

Intimate. Unique. Scenic. We won’t want to be too lofty, but the loft is an ideal spot for smaller groups of 50 or fewer. With tableside service, a 70-inch TV, and your own private bathroom (!), our Loft spot makes smaller parties feel like the social event of the season.
