The bar lists 23 beers on draft and about 50 bottles, almost all of which are local or small craft brewers that are hard to find.

The bar at 144 N. Main St. is owned by husband-and-wife team Alec Lopez and Sherri Sadowski, who started Armsby Abbey in 2008. They also own Dive Bar and announced last month they'll be opening a Mexican restaurant in downtown Hudson called Conico.
