WE ARE A BEER STORE FEATURING CRAFT BEER, ARTISAN FOODS, BREWERINA, CHOCOLATES AND A RANGE OF THEIR MOST GLORIOUS ACCOMPANIMENTS.

We are passionate about beer – so our vision is to have a unique store carrying beer, beer accessories, vintage beer and bar items and a large variety of books about beer to expand what we know about the product we love so much.

We also carry delicious artisan foods for you to pair with your beer.

We are looking to become part of the beer community in Ferndale and beyond. For now, take us for what we are at this moment - a hub for beer lovers, aficionados, and newbie’s to come and share their beer stories, talk about what beers they are currently drinking and help us find new beers to share.

Cheers, Tim and Brigid
