A lot has changed since Ken sold the whole kit-and-kabootle to the original owners of Mad River. The tap room is new and is always crowded with those who know an excellent beer when they wash it over an experienced palette. From Jamaica Sunset IPA, Steelhead double-IPA or the seasonal favorite, Double Dread Red, the beer is hard to beat. In fact, try a sampler, it makes the choosing easier. Don't over do it though, some, like the double IPA, pack a punch.
In short, the award-winning beer does not disappoint when served ice cold and just a day out of the brewery. Add a great atmosphere, a gorgeous oak bar and friendly staff and its every beer aficionados dreamlike watering hole. If you ask nicely, they will even take you out back for a tour. Make em' show you Ken's photos.
