Valentines Day is quickly approaching, and they will be offering our regular menu as well as some romantic entree and dessert specials!

Here is a sample of the Brews they currently have on tap:

Little Sister Cerveza
– A light easy drinking lager brewed with honest to goodness flaked blue corn we special ordered.
Fever Pitch Saison
– Light and crisp, almost wine-like, brewed with grains of paradise lending a slight peppery background
Skittle Brau
– Our homage to Homer Simpson’s genius, a light saison that we brew with fruit.  No extracts mind you, actual fruit that contributes to the fermentable sugars in the beer.  Our current batch was brewed with peach
Gose the Gozerian
– a seldom made style of beer brewed with salt and coriander.  One of our most unique, and most loved beers
– a golden colored dry belgian single, perfectly balanced (my favorite)

Call (385)227-8628 for reservations.
