The place has been open more than a year but scarcely anyone was there. This was more of an exploration than a beer tasting. To enter you have to climb a steep flight of stairs between the shops along Main Street South. I had the impression it would be a lot smaller given the entrance and the exit-only door out back but it is roomy and there is even space for a pool table. If my visit was typical I cannot speculate how they manage keep the doors open.
