They take care to make sure that all the tables had 6' distance and had hand sanitizer at each table. The beer they brew is excellent and the food they serve is quite authentic.

So wonderful! Attentive to safety and quick seating. Our server was one of the best I've ever had (and I work in the industry!) He was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and quick (he HUSTLED) and always ended each interaction with "my pleasure" I wish I had gotten his name, he's a rock star :)

Loved our table under the trees. The radler (new on the drink menu) was delightful (and as someone who doesn’t care for “normal” beer, much appreciated!). Service was great. Food delicious—especially loved the cabbage/apple side.

Food, Beer, and Service were good! I was a little disappointed that I had made reservations 3 weeks prior then when we arrived were seated at the only outdoor table without shade. (It was 86° and sunny so HOT) We were able to move to shade when a tables opened up, but would have been great to have that table in the shade to begin with.

Beer was Excellent. We had Brats...they were all pretty good. Wasn't a fan of the in-house made mustard tho, it was bitter and did not taste like mustard. I can see they were going for something unique...A for being bold & innovative but it missed the mark. I would definitely go back...service, Beer, & food was excellent!
