In the few months since it opened, the taproom has established itself as a gathering place for locals. Now the owners are offering four house-made brews on draft.
The production straddles a line between comedy and drama. “The director and I went back and forth on how to market it,” Jamieson Ridenhour says. “Most of the play is like a comedy and there’s a lot of funny dialogue.
