What are your go-to brews and what makes them unique? 

I love our Kolsch. It’s light, crisp, and a delicious year-round beer. Our seasonal Oktoberfest beer is also super amazing and my current go-to brew. 

What is something unique/quirky about the brewery that most people don’t know? 

Ben Mullett, our Head Brewer, served in the United States Marine Corps before he got started in brewing. Semper Fi.
