Though concise, our food menu was designed to complement our beverage selection. While we are not a full-service restaurant – food was certainly not an afterthought. Intended to be shareable and light, but substantive; we offer something for everyone.

Much more than just a beverage – craft beer is a critical component of our social, economic, and political well-being and has played a central role in nearly all cultures, past and present. In fact, that there is convincing evidence that the development of agriculture: widely regarded as the foundation of civilization, was actually based on the cultivation of grain for beer – not bread.     Beer is the staff of life!

Hammer & Ale…

Throughout human history, the drinking-place has been regarded a special environment. A separate social world with its own customs and values; a socially integrative, welcoming environment – whose primary function is to facilitate social bonding.

We strive to be that place that binds people together – encouraging & reinforcing social hospitality through beer culture.
