    Outside is definitely the place to be on a beautiful Summer or Fall night. But if you can't find a spot, fair warning, inside is VERY loud!

    Chill bar with a semi-grunge vibe offering great prices on an awesome whiskey selection and mason jars of beer! BBQ menu may be short, but it's all quality, delicious, and WORTH IT!

    It's charming, industrial, and a great place to enjoy an expansive selection of craft beers, from PBR to Tokyo Black, and a brief, but satisfying menu of sandwiches, halfsmokes, and pork nachos.
