There’s a solid IPA in their lineup, and they’re unafraid to ease off the hops with more malt-forward ales too.

Brewmaster Jack does a lot of interesting “house beers” for local restaurants, and their staple Ambrewsia IPA is a delicious, hazy, quintessential IPA.

Both the beers and the tasting room are rustically charming and white-linen luxurious at the same time. Drink bravely.

A relatively new player. For a while their only offering was this delicious IPA. They do a fab Session and DIPA now too.

Always trying new things with their IPAs. Literally. Seems there’s a new one each month and they’re all seriously crushable.

Hope Street Amber is exceptional for being one of the few traditional ESBs you can find brewed in these parts. It tastes exceptional too.
