I recently had the chance to just stop in, and ended up staying way longer than anticipated. The beers were unique and flavorful, and the host friendly. I very much enjoyed the space.

This was a great place to stop for an hour on a rainy afternoon - great beer tasting flight (and a cute pup) and a fun look at the behind the scenes of a brewery/beer distributor.

Stopped by on a rainy afternoon for a fun tasting! Tasted 5 beers, including a whale testicle beer for $15. It was fun to taste local brews.

We had a great time here! This was a must-stop for my husband because of the whale beer. We had a great flight of many of their beers, including the whale brew. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
