Introducing, Veterans United Craft Brewery. This distinctive new brewery is dedicated to expanding the definition of what beer can be. Through hard work, innovation, and fresh quality ingredients, this brewery knows how to create a plethora of flavor, while still reinforcing social and environmental responsibility to the local community.

Want to try their one-of-a-kind beer for yourself? You can! The taproom will be open 5 p.m. to 10p.m. tonight and  from 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow. From that point on, regular hours will be 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday to Friday and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. Raging Blonde Ale, HopBanshee IPA and Scout Dog 44 Amber Ale, along with two guest taps will be on tap this weekend.
