Once a warehouse for the Fitch Soap Company in the 20’s, “The Annex” has been completely transformed into the main dining area of Exile Brewing Co.  The industrial steel truss and original wood ceiling have been preserved and incorporated into the modern dining area.  From first sight to final tasting, the presentation kitchen allows diners a complete sensory experience.  Tables handcrafted from reclaimed barn wood serve as a stage for the community to come together over man and nature’s greatest collaboration: food and beer.

All beers are brewed on location.  

Full bar and select wine list available any time. We are currently open Tuesday – Sunday.
