The Hideout Brewing Company
Once each new batch of beer has passed through The Hideout Brewing Company's 155-gallon system, brewers transfer it from fermentation drums into kegs one by one. The hands-on process takes time, but brewmasters still manage to keep The Hideout's 25 taps filled. Drafts like the Promiscuous Pilsner and the Gangster IPA are available year-round, thought most of the bar's selection rotates among specialty and seasonal beers, as well as occasional hard ciders and meads. The brewers are often playful with different styles of beer, steeping chocolate and jalapeños or using wild yeasts that build a complex maze of flavors.
Along with food from outside vendors, The Hideout's pours pair well with a modest menu of bar snacks such as mini tacos, corn dogs, and soft pretzels. Drinking and dining commences on the main floor, where Prohibition-era photographs surround weekly rounds of trivia, board games, and chess. Competitive shouts drift from shuffleboard and dartboards, and there’s also a horseshoe pit in The Hideout's backyard garden, where steeds respectfully leave their hoofwear before coming inside for a drink.
