Fun Fact: Their Storm Door Porter was recently ranked by Paste magazine as the 27th best winter beer in the world, ahead of heavyweights Sierra Nevada and Sam Adams. 

Insider Tip: Try Unveiled, a crisp beautiful ale brewed with pink peppercorns and hibiscus. 

IN THE WORKS: A new brewpub with a beer garden coming later this summer. Meanwhile, watch for “Session Saturdays” through the summer, when a one-day license will enable the brewery to sell full pints, rather than just complimentary two-ounce pours.
