Another brain child of Scot Blair (Hamilton’s Tavern, South Park Brewing Co.), Monkey Paw Brewing Co. opened its doors in 2012. In addition to their rotating list of dozens of unique and award-winning craft beers (of which five or more are available at any given time), they have dozens of offerings from other breweries, plus a hearty food menu and a respectable selection of hard liquor and cocktails.
Casks are available weekly – “Firkin Cask Thursdays.” Keep in mind, though, that this is not a tasting room; it’s essentially a bar with a behind-the-scenes brewery. This establishment is not animal or child friendly, and seating is rather limited, with room for a few dozen people or so.
