something new

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!

    We have various dry snacks available for purchase: chips and salsa, meat sticks, pretzels, nuts and popcorn. We also have tons of amazing food vendors that will set up inside the taproom, or park their food trucks adjacent to the outdoor area. See who's serving what or local delivery/ pick-up options!

  • Can we bring in outside food?

    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. Check out a list of some of our favorite food delivery and pick-up options nearby!

    We do not take reservations; however, we do book private rentals. If you're concerned about space please know we have a very large space that can accommodate 250+ people inside and on our patio. For private rentals please contact us!

  • Do you offer growler credits/deposits? 

    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.
