I visited when they first opened and enjoyed their offerings. Visited again recently and was impressed with how much they have upped their brewing game. Also, their current facilities have a nice vibe to enjoy a beverage and conversation.
Great beers on tap, friendly staff and a must go-to place if you are in Sitka.
