FRIDAY–SATURDAY 11am – 12am or later?


How did it all begin? Brewmasters Scott and Phil looked at each other and Scott said, “Hey Phil. Your mutton chops look particularly enchanting today.” “Thanks Scott. Let’s open a brew-pub.”

After holding each other in a loving, yet totally masculine embrace Scott and Phil decided to build a neighborhood brew-pub that served food they like and beer they like in a casual, laid-back atmosphere. LowDown opened in February of 2014 after recruiting the culinary talents of Executive Chef Brendon and Sous Chef Dylan. LowDown Brewery + Kitchen is where you’ll get inspired, comforting, and even healthy food paired with great beer. It will be the best part of your day.
