Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
This pleasant, simple brewery has developed quite the following since it opened in July, and for good reason. The space is modern, clean and comfortable, and every time we’ve visited, it has been pleasantly crowded without being so packed we can’t find a seat. The air has that malty brewery smell, and there’s always a solid selection of beers brewed on premises, ranging from crisp golden ales to hoppy pale ales and dense stouts. And for your friends who don’t really like beer, there are a few wines available from local winery Quantum Leap, located right around the corner. Cheers.
