Friday Tasting Room: The line starts forming as early as 5:00 p.m. and the doors open at 6:00 p.m. for this weekly tradition. The rules are simple: beer tokens are 5 for $20 or $5 each. The pizza is deliverable. The cask is tapped. The space is bare bones. There is very little to get in the way of tasting and savoring some of the best and freshest beer in the whole wide world-- no cover, no reservations, no tours. Get here early to snag a table in our communal Tasting Room and settle in.
