Tucked into a small corner of downtown, this wonderfully homey hole in the wall buzzes with a comfortable cacophony of 10 different table-top conversations among flannel-wearing patrons and a barkeep who radiates “I’ll bring it out to you” friendliness. Dog-eared books line the pub’s wall alongside old photos of bare-knuckled boxers. And, oh yeah, the brewery’s stouts and ales all have an awesome kick.
