the summer of 2011. Leslie’s background is in marketing. In the short time since
opening, they have laid down a set of award winning beers and have begun to brew

Our goal is simple – we want to make really great beer and have a lot of fun. We
also love to rock out and our beer enjoys the best classic rock 24 hours a day
