frequently asked questions
Q: Are dogs allowed?
A: Yes- we allow leashed dogs outside on our lawn (past the wall) only.
Q: Is the Tasting Room & Taphouse child-friendly?
A: Yes- families with children are welcome to enjoy our lawn beyond the wall.
Q: We would like to designate a driver- can we catch an Uber or Lyft home?
