Landers Brew Co. is a historic roadhouse bar built in 1948. It’s a local watering hole with the some great craft beers on tap. It features brews with fun names like “Aurora Hoppyalis” and the “Landers Hammered Blonde.” It also has pool tables, foosball, vintage pinball, an interactive jukebox and occasional live music. They’ve been hosting DJ sets like Deep House Wednesdays, Jam Band & BBQ, and more, attracting a larger crowd on the weekends. There’s also an outdoor beer garden, nothing fancy, but nice to catch some rays of sunshine and check out the views of nearby Goat Mountain.
Note: Beer and wine only.
