See An Eagle!

Named in 2001 by a second grader at Samantha Smith Elementary School, Soaring Eagle Regional Park is 600 acres of mature forests, wetlands, and wildlife habitat. This natural area provides sanctuary for black bear, bobcat, black tail deer and more than 40 species of birds.

There are twelve miles of trails that are regularly used by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The Pipeline Trail that crosses through the park is wide and flat – in fact, it is quite common to see families with baby strollers out enjoying the trail. Soaring Eagle is also popular for trail running competitions.

Freshly-Brewed Beer Anyone?

Big Block engines made their debut in family cars in the late 50’s and early 60’s long before the muscle car ever hit the streets. Back then, ordering a Big Block motor was rare, expensive and not real great on gas but it made the drive to work or the store just a little bit better, a little faster, a little more fun…. it separated them from the rest and best of all... they did it because they could.This brewery was founded on the same principle. 

The brews take a little longer to produce, they cost a little more to make, and they just might be a little more fun. Why do they brew this way? …Because they can. Take one of their brews for a test drive, sit back and enjoy the ride. Cheers!
