Goodbye to 2012

As the year comes to a close (or the world depending on who you talk to) I try to take the time to reflect on everything we got done this year. 2012 was a big one for us. We added a vintage list and the space to store all those delicious beers. We got a new draft system, new organizational system and a new lease on life. All the bottles are in one place now (thank god!) We gained two new managers: Welcome Todd Derickson, our beloved and much missed sous-chef (we can’t wait until January, come back sooner!) and Joe Bagnell, our new front of the house manager, hailing from New Jersey. All and all I can say 2012 was a good year for us. Looking forward into 2013, there are still a few more updates we’d like to make, but mostly be are going to enjoy how far we’ve come (and try and save some $$$) We hope to see you all during the next couple of weeks for some holiday cheer!

We will be open until 6pm on Christmas Eve and we will open at 5pm on Christmas day!
NYE 11:30am-2:30am
NEw Years Day 11am-4pm brunch, open until midnight.
