For our beer-loving guests, you must check out Foam Brewers and celebrate the foam! No two visits will be alike as their tap list is constantly rotating, as is their food offerings. In addition to their variety of beer, often inspired by the season or simply by what the team of brewers is loving at the moment, they have kombucha, nitro cold pressed coffee, as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic ciders on tap. You’ll also enjoy cheese and charcuterie plates, food truck cameos, and other local specialty snacks. Be sure to check out their website to see what’s on draft, on the menu, and on the calendar.
