Saturday, November 11th: HANNAH BANANA NE IPA is back.

Available in 16 ounce 4-packs. Free samples available in addition to the tasting and Crowler lineup. Please join us!02FOC081217

With the end of Daylight Saving Time comes a one-hour shift: Open Saturdays 11AM to 4PM for the remainder of our season (last day open for 2017 is December 31st). This change is for safety reasons, since we have overflow parking a short walk away and want to make sure no one is on the road in the dark. We will continue to hire a police officer from 12PM to 4PM, and will keep all of the fires burning. Thank you!
