“Manrock is owned by a local couple; we watched their microbrew grow from six bar stools and a janitor's closet converted to hold the tanks, to their current location. They continue to get more and more popular. What's on tap varies day to day, because it is all made on site. And yes....Phil and I were some of the early supporters who fought for two of those six bar stools. ”
