Beer is Here!

At the end of October, Chef Kramer, of Table 301, teamed up with Jon and Pierre at the Growler Station to pair his delicious fare with their seasonal brews…and I got to experience it! Be sure to pay a visit to Jon and Pierre – they’ll encourage you to sit and stay for a bit while you enjoy a craft beer from their impressive selection of bottles or a fresh one from the tap. With mellow jams, comfy couches, and of course, free wi-fi, this is my kind of low-key hangout!
