Now about the drinks…
We love this brewery because the beers are brewed RIGHT HERE. Purchase a growler and get refills for cheap! The brewery has four beers on rotation, including the blonde (below), an IPA, an amber and an oatmeal stout. The beers were smooth, tasty and worth the refills! Enjoy a handful of guest taps from local and regional breweries. Beer lovers are in no shortage of options at Union Bear Brewery!
TheÂ staff-curated spirits and cocktails are not to miss, too. From margaritas to stiff Old Fashionends, sip on creative twists on your favorite cocktails.
Appetizers and Entrees
