“Excellent tap room. Small and comfortable with all their regular beers on tap (obviously). Had their seasonal wheat beer which was delicious! Would have liked to see more snacks (chips and salsa? LBJ does it). Will definitely return though. Lots of dedicated bike lanes so if you’re on a bike it’s easy to get to. Lots of bike racks outside the tap room which was a nice touch.” – Jonathan Klippenstein-Epp
