Merchants Of Beer

This retro diner is now an ideal pub with dozens of craft beer on tap from near and far. Indoor area is in perfect harmony with the original building style. Huge outdoor seating with umbrella tables and plenty of space for games and pups.
Ordered overpriced hamburger for $12 bucks it came with no cheese no lettuce only pickles. Hamburger was very dry and a McDonald's $79 cents cheeseburger tastes better! A large Great Dane was walking around inside the restaurant while food was being served. We asked for no salt on the fries, fries came out with so much salt that we couldn't even eat the food. It was a bad choice for us that night.
Great beer selection, all local beers are marked with an orange star on the board which is helpful. We ordered jackfruit nachos from the pop up food truck and really enjoyed them!

This was during the USA cycling road tour and surprisingly we were able to get a booth inside!
Great place to grab a beer!
Got great wings, brats and fries from the food truck out back!
We even bought a growler to go!!
Great selection of beer. Great, friendly service for our large party. One star off only because the associated food truck wasn't available during our 2+ hour visit. It was lunchtime on a Saturday. 🤔
