Our taproom at the brewery is open for business. We are excited to have you by to enjoy our rotating selection of the finest and freshest ales and lagers.
Our outer taproom is a pint with a view. Open to the facility, a seat at the bar overlooks our brewhouse and cellar. Often you can find the brewers working away while you luxuriously enjoy your liquid love. Yes, they are jealous.
We also have an inner taproom that in the extreme seasons of summer and winter will be air conditioned or heated for those who want to enjoy their drink in a more temperate setting. In more moderate weather, the glass partition opens and join the two rooms.
We enjoy sharing our passion and getting you closer to the process. Having a drink here at the brewery is a great way to learn more about our beer and how it is brewed. It is a truly unique and interesting place to share a pint.
GROWLERS, or HAPPINESS TO-GO
A growler is a portable, reusable to-go container for beer. We sell growlers in 64oz and 32 oz. sizes perfect for any occasion. Not only do are the more traditional glass growlers available, but we also carry stainless steel vacuum-insulated growlers from Miir, a company that runs a fantastic not-for-profit freshwater well project in the third world countries. These stainless howlers keep beer cold for more than 18 hours outside the fridge.
We happily fill growlers of most of our beers. If the beer has limited availability or is costly to brew, it may not be available in this form.
A few caveats:
- The growler must be clean. Whether it’s ours or someone else’s, if it’s stinky, you no drinky.
- When cleaning it, the best method is to rinse with hot water as soon after you finish it as you can and let it air dry with the cap off. It’s OK if you lose the cap, we’ll give you a new one.
- Growlers are not packaged like cans or bottles, they are meant for near immediate consumption. After you leave with the growler, keep it cold. You can stash it in a fridge, cooler, a growler suit or just use a double-walled stainless steel growler (coincidentally, just like we sell!)
- You can keep it this way for a couple of days, 3 at the most. Once you open it, you better finish it! It’s OK, it’s 5 pints, grab a friend or two and you’re good to go.
- They are PERFECT for sharing at parties, BBQs, tailgates, hiking, backpacking and the beach (those last two if you get the metal ones!)<l/i>
DEFRAYAL OF CAPITAL…YOU KNOW, PAYMENT
We do not accept cash, only debit/credit cards for payment. It’s safer for our employees; it’s hard to stick up a hard drive and a modem. It’s also convenient, for us and you. No more stops at the ATM, head right on in. But, we are sorry for any inconvenience.
WHAT’S A DRINK WITHOUT A NOSH?
As a holder of a microbrewery license, we are prohibited from serving food made on our premises. We encourage our patrons to bring food or order from local restaurants for delivery to the taproom. We have a menu book with options ranging from delicious BBQ and pizza to Asian delicacies. Ask a customer service representative for our menu book.
YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!
Feel free to peruse our collection of games. We have modern and classic, mind numbing and brain bending, its all right there on our game shelves. The inner taproom has a proper British bristle dart board, none of this plastic-tip, quarter-fed electronic stuff. It’s free, gloriously free. Don’t have your own fancy-schmancy darts? No problem, we have darts behind the bar for your airborne missile-based enjoyment.
OTHER RULES OF THE HOUSE
We are dog friendly. We ask you keep Fido/Fifi leashed. Water bowls will be provided upon request. Our rule is the same be it two- or four-legged patron, “if you behave, you can stay”
We are child- and kid-friendly as well. Soft drinks are available, cause they ain’t gettin no suds.
Our lot on the North side of the building accommodates 26 cars. We also have an agreement with the building to our north (it is the mirror-image spots to the North of our lot) to park there after our lot fills. There is also street parking available on Wilmette Ave. (the street directly to the East of our building). Please do not park in the Ready, Set, Grow daycare at the end of our parking lot. There is signage there that indicates your car will be towed. We highly encourage you to get a ride with your friends so you can easily find parking and do less damage to our delicate environment.
