There are so many reasons to love Silvaticus—the soaring exposed brick taproom with wrought iron chandeliers, beer with yoga on Saturday mornings, a rotating selection of local pop-up food offerings from crab cakes to pierogies, a beer garden on the Powow River—but you’re really here for the beer, a selection of Belgian farmhouse ales and German-style lagers as refreshing as they are carefully crafted.

Notch Brewery & Tap Room
The year-round patio, Skee-Ball, and session beers—brews with less alcohol so you can enjoy a few—are all good reasons to hang out here, as is the delicious charcuterie board.
