SOMETHING FAMILIAR Miller Lite Coors Light
A word about craft beer. We like to support small
business even when it comes to beer. Getting into drinking craft beer is
something that a lot of people are doing. The reason for this is because a lot of people are
really starting to venture out and enjoy the taste and quality of their beer.
People are starting to take into consideration that a hard working person
deserves a beverage made by a person who worked just as hard as they do. Our
craft beer selections come from the Chicagoland area and Louisiana. Please
You can purchase food, wine and/or beer to take home. Of course it always tastes best in our dining room!
We have many “vintage finds” for sale. New items come in weekly. Visit us often!
