Grab a beer, find a table, and hang out in our all-ages taproom. Our downtown production facility brings together friends old and new from near and far to share stories, exchange and inspires new ideas, and yes, to drink great beer!

At Switchyard, all of our coworkers are paid a reliable, living wage. In the taproom, tipping is 100% optional. because we guarantee every Switchyard salary. We believe that as a company, we should be responsible for our workers’ wages, not the whim of the customer. No offense intended, we just want our staff to have a guaranteed, living wage without discrimination. If you still want to leave a tip for our team, you are welcome to do so, it’s appreciated, but never expected here.

Due to Health Department regulations, dogs are allowed on our patio only. Service animals are always allowed inside!

Behind the bar, we have a variety of seasonal wines, beers, ciders, and gluten-free options. Non-alcoholic options include fountain soda, root beer, and bottled juices & Capri-Sun packs for the little pints.

We DO NOT allow outside beverages, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, on the premises. Exceptions are always made for infants.
