Unique microbrewery located in an industrial setting. Come visit Clearfield's first microbrewery. We've been brewing beer now for over four years and we've had nothing but consistent positive feedback on our suds. What changed the tide, though, was a resounding Shakespearean query, “Wherest thou may I procure the finest of your malted brews?" After hearing this question so many times, we decided to start brewing beer on a professional level - bringing our brews to the masses. But this isn't just about us, we want to do our part to bring business back to our area one tasty pint at a time! Race Street will be a palace of pale ales, a sanctuary of stouts, a lair of lagers...oh, and by the way, you can get some awesome food there too. It will also be a destination to kick back, relax and share time with friends.  Get some!
