We came back here again after enjoying it so much the first time we visited last year. Place is laid back and friendly with a great variety of interesting beers and an adorable Icelandic sheepdog.

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.

Loved our quick stop here! Really friendly service, good variety of quality craft beers to taste and an inviting tasting room. We did not realize how famous the "whale beer" is until our brewer friends at home in Canada went completely nuts to hear that...More
