Not Just For Beers


We're not just here for beer! Our backbar features a growing range of local craft and imported spirits, with a featured distillery every month. We have a cocktail list if you're feeling fancy (the daiquiri is particularly good), and a range of local and imported wines from independent producers. And don’t forget our famous Bloody Mary menu – ours are the best in town!
