My personal favorite hangout for the Best Craft Beer around! 16 Taps and Huge Bottle selection, Beautiful Patio, dog friendly, and fun Speakeasy Bar area. Enter through Valley Brewers store, find the hallway with the bookcase door. You have arrived in beer heaven and will be greeted by Basil Brewdog, Chris, Sandy or Kim! Tell them Hi from Belgian Kris! :-)
