How do I order a draft beverage?
That’s easy! Come up to the bar, order your beer, cider, or soda, and POOF! Beverage. Our staff will ask if you would like to keep your tab open or close it – that’s it! We just ask that you bring your glasses back to the bar or give them to a staff member when you are ready to leave... almost like rewinding the VHS before returning to Blockbuster...
Do I have to be 21 to enter the building?
Nope! We are very family friendly and have options for everyone to enjoy. Individuals under 21 years of age are not permitted to sit at the bar or order alcoholic beverages.
Unfortunately, no. We are not permitted to allow pets inside our building unless they are trained and leashed service animals.

No reason to! – we’ve got everything you need, promise!
Sure do – just ask our staff for more information.
Can I reserve the taproom for private parties or events?
