Following a mapping grant for revitalizing small towns, several groups emerged including a retail group from which an idea grew to begin a microbrewery. A beautiful historical building was aquired in April 2017 and reconstruction began along with brewing of great beer! By May of 2018, a place was established and open for people to gather and share great beer, food, fun, and stories. Unfortunately, approximately 9 months later the unthinkable happened. After a very successful business began to thrive in a small town, a devestating fire shattered the hearts of the owners who began the adventure together. The outpouring of support from people of the town and surrounding communities lifted the spirits of the owners who had a big decision to make. Could there be a rebirth of this dream? Several barn destructions and donations of some of the most caring customers helped answer that question.
