Meet Neil Caron – he’s our award winning Pilot Brewer! Our Pilot Brewery is attached to our taproom and is responsible for designing new recipes, production techniques, ingredient trials as well as brewing beers that can only be found in our taproom.
Our Pilot Brewery is a 7bbl DME System that mimics our 30BBL Production brewery so that we are able to scale up our test recipes for production.
Give Neil a wave next time you see him brewing in our taproom!
Unfortunately our Dept of Ag license prohibits dogs inside our Taproom unless they are certified service animals. Our patio is dog friendly as well as our outdoor plaza space.

We have various dry snacks available for purchase: chips and salsa, meat sticks, pretzels, nuts and popcorn.
Absolutely, if the food you are bringing in was produced in a commercial kitchen (Restaurant, Grocery Store and pretty much any pre-packaged food is good to go) Sadly, this means you have to leave the crockpot home, and we know how hard that is.

Yes, if it designed for beer and 64oz and it can be sealed and is labeled with an alcohol warning we can find a way to fill it. Note, there may be exceptions to this, in which case, we have glass growlers available for purchase.
While we don’t offer credits for growlers as once you purchase the glass, it’s yours. We do offer a reduced rate on fills, when filling your glass growlers. We will also happily re-cycle or re-use Bent Paddle growlers that you no longer use.
