Brewery

“Overall a great brewery. Their blueberry wheat beer (they put fresh blueberries in the glass) is one of my favorite all time beers. And they were making it long before craft beer was hip. Have a beautiful bar restaurant area and a great back patio. Food is geared more toward families and kids.”

“Great ambience, chic ski lodge interior. Great cocktails, food is good as well (we like the chicken cecelia). The most upscale option in town as well as most expensive. Good wine list.”

Bar

“Completely remodeled in 2019, great bar with live music almost every night. Food is standard pub fare, think burgers and sandwiches. Chicken wings are really good, we get them with the "everything" sauce.”

“Horrible name but a good bar. Recently remodeled and expanded. Food is standard pub fare. Do a great job of bringing in bands from all over, especially during blues/jazz/rock n' roll weekends. Has a dance floor which also gives it a late night scene. ”

Spa
“Every day, our bodies are exposed to positive ions from cell phones, microwaves, computers, the air we breathe, and the water we drink. When you visit this unique facility, negative ions will be absorbed through the skin and inhaled into your lungs. This unbelievable effect is achieved during 45-minute sessions spent within our one-of-a-kind salt cave. ”
