Engine House No. 9

From the fireman statue greeting you and your crew at the door, to the fire hydrants, hoses and rustic red décor peppered throughout, Engine House No. 9 takes its commitment to preserving history seriously. Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, this once busy firehouse was converted to a charming neighborhood brewery in 1995, and now serves creative pub fare alongside small batch ales to T-town residents. Your little firecracker will love checking out the pictures of the old firehouse hanging on the walls or playing classic video games on the terrace while you sip your favorite brew in the cozy confines of the restaurant. Psst! Be sure to check out their sour beer while you’re at it! 

Perfect pour: Try the Belgian White when you’re there. It pairs perfectly with their outdoor patio seating.
