Check out our beautiful new
stained glass window!!!
Local artisan Dave Wood
of Crystal River, Florida, created this
truly magnificent stained glass window
for the tasting room door leading to our
outside beer garden.
Dave's talent clearly
shines in this work of art! It is
wonderful to watch the sunlight stream
in during the day or the lights reflect
and play upon it at night.
Thank you Dave!
