FoC_mtg-1More great staff.  Parking on site.  New and improved beer dispensers. Two registers. Clearer signage. Your growler fills and our crowler fills on demand.  More beer.

CHEERS, and THANK YOU!

 

Reopening day is Saturday, April 1st: Tastings, your growler fills and Fat Orange Cat Crowler fills on demand.

 

Crowler and Two Beers

We are so excited to start our 2017 season!

We will again offer four tastings with our glass included for $5.00.

We also will continue to sell fills of any growler from any brewery for various prices, depending on the beer and size of the growler.

We now have two Crowler machines and will be filling our 32-ounce cans on demand.

We are starting out with Saturday afternoons only, but are working on an exciting plan to ramp up production and open on Sundays as well beginning in May… stay tuned for more on that!
