    A theme park for beer geeks, with hops, barley sacks, and bottles used in the decor, and even beer barrels as chandeliers over the bar. Here you'll find one of the best Cuban sandwiches in town, and the chefs are also proud of their Cornish game hen with local pepper honey, and the pork belly with apple puree.

    Lunch and dinner are perfect to grab anything from grilled cheese, to a turkey burger crusted with potato chips, to one of their great "shredder" bowls. No meal here is complete without a stop at the in-house shake shop for a shake, especially their signature Cap'n Crunch variety. It might be the best milkshake you'll ever have.
