Impression: Timeless old place that seems to have run out of time, or manpower to man brewing and running 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 server was very nice. I also liked both the simple food and both beers I had.  The Dunkles was better than others on the same beer hiking trail 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.
