Proclamation Ale welcomes guests to its large tasting room and retail area, where music is playing, a projector is streaming TV shows and movies, and food trucks (on weekends) stand by to match the flow of beer with its counterpart of tasty bites. Kids are allowed to come in if parents keep a close eye on them, and your dog may accompany you to the outdoor patio, too. It’s like a party zone, with onsite crafted beer!
