Paging Mr. Conn!

Aside from Alesong, what's there to drink eat, see, do, in the area?

Will be there with a 7 and 6 year old so family friendly suggestions welcome as well!

Thanks!

Check out Coldfire.  Other than Alesong it's definitely the best in town.  Food trucks and family friendly.  BTW, although it's a beautiful location, if you don't want to make the drive to Alesong in the country, they have an in town tasting room at the 5th Street Market.  Just a few blocks from Coldfire.

I second Cold fire as a stop along with Alesong.

Ninkasi was also a stop just because.

Fun, but a distant 3rd in terms of beer.  Their Better Living Room is quite the food experience

AleSong and ColdFire were excellent!

I think I'll have to add Hop Valley brewing to the list, having gone there with the fam earlier for dinner. Great food and the saison of theirs I had was excellent - hit the spot!

Cheers everyone!

It's owned by MillerCoors so I don't go there.  I prefer to give my money to small independents.  Glad you enjoyed it.

Their whole purpose when they opened was to be attractive to a buyer.

Same story with 10 Barrel.
