Awesome brewery with a great selection of beers. The Red Lion was a great beer and the atmosphere was great. Also, the bartender was a very sweet and nice girl who helped us out with everything and made nice conversation. Took home a tacker, some stickers, and some beer glasses for the collection. One of my favorite breweries!
My husband and I were travelling through the area and the beer itself was great. Loved it enough to buy a crowler to go which leaked all over my car and soaked all my clothes for the weekend. Drink beer there but do not take it to go! The beer is not good enough to ruin the contents and upholstery of your car.
