Current Available Draft List

All draft is available for to-go purchase. You may bring in your own glass growler. We sanitize all outside growlers and change the sanitation water after each customer, to ensure safety and cleanliness. For to-go orders you can walk right in, order ahead for inside or curbside pickup.



As many of you know, our team will be out of work for at least another month, if not more. If you don't need beer but would like to virtually tip our bartenders, you can do so here! All proceeds will be divvied up between our staff to soften the financial blow that COVID-19 has made on them, as it has on so many members of the service industry.

We all miss are regulars who we consider as family and cannot wait to be open pouring you a pint or two!

to beer

determined party

Friends and neighbors,


In these most uncertain of times we know its hard to make much sense out of everything going on. Like many local businesses, we have employees who now find themselves out of work and wondering how they’re going to pay their bills. Today we wanted to offer you the opportunity to help us help our people while also getting something in return.


Right now we’d like to encourage any and everyone to please purchase a ticket for $20 to the party we’re calling To Beer Determined. 100% of the money generated through the sale of these tickets will go directly to our out of work employees and in exchange, you will get an invite to the epic party we will be throwing for everyone who donates at a date TBD, including a drink package.


By purchasing a ticket through eventbrite, we will obtain your contact information and reach out once we understand more about when we can schedule the party. This money is not only a helping hand to friends and neighbors in a time of need right now but a down payment on a great time to raise a toast to the spirit of giving and community sometime in the future. It’s impossible to express how thankful we are to anyone willing to donate, but we’ll work on finding those words between now and the party. In the meantime, please consider buying a ticket.


Hope to see you soon. Thank you and as always, DRINK LOCAL AND PROSPER!!
