Served: on tap at the brewpub after brewing ceased

Impression: Timeless old place that seems to have run out of time, or manpower to run both a brewery and a pub. I didn’t realize it at the time and they aren’t exactly forthcoming about not being a brewery. That said, I enjoyed the place and the server was very nice. I also liked both the simple food and both beers I had.  The Helles was a dry fruity one I’d be happy to drink again despite being brewed elsewhere. I’d still rather have that then bringing in another brewery’s beer. I’ll surely go back again when in the area.

Next beer or back to the beer list.
