1. Luce Line Brewing Company

Luce Line Brewing Co is a brewery by the people for the people. It all started from a desire in the area to have a community space to hang out and enjoy great beers. The community stepped up and supported them through COVID and the rest is history.

If it is your first visit, try one of their flagship brews, like Foggy Bottom Hazy IPA or Electric Owl sour with guava, blackberry and vanilla.
