    The food is excellent but the star is really the beer. Fantastic brews with many special and seasonal offerings brewed there.

    A chain, but locally brewed. Try the honey ale, a light brew featuring subtle undertones of clover honey, sourced locally from Spring Valley Honey Farm in Perry. Read more
