The 2013 Holiday season was a great one for us and we’d like to thank everyone who stopped by in December and donated a new unwrapped toy for Toys For Tots.

We collected over a hundred toys to give to children in need over the holiday season. Everyone that donated to our toy drive received a FREE house brew and we were never so happy to toast to our generous customers. Thanks for helping us help make a difference to some local kids for the holidays!
