To the Bat Cave!

Their name might be a little disconcerting, considering it’s named after a flying mammal, but the Freetail Brewing Company is anything but harrowing. After winning a myriad of “Best of” awards from local and national publications alike, the beer cultivated and offered here is truly remarkable and worthy of all the praise. Owner Scott Metzger and his team of brewers formulate delicious, hoppy and interesting flavors on a regular basis. Try their Rye Wit, Echolocator Hoppelbock or PailTail, and take the free tour of the brewery that’s given every Saturday at noon. They also serve artisan pizza and sandwiches to soak up the suds.
