Enjoy a Pint of House-Crafted Beer at 16 Lots Brewing Company

16 Lots Brewing Company debuted at the beginning of September as an homage to the city in which it resides. One of its flagship beers, the 1803 American Pale Ale, actually references the origins of Mason. 1803 is the year that William Mason bought the 640 acres of land that would one day become his namesake city—for a mere $1,700. The 1803 brew pays tribute to this important purchase with a citrusy ale.

The 1803 is just one of a large collection of house-brewed suds, ranging from the robust Muddy Creek Oatmeal Stout to the light and crisp Treaty American Wheat. Come into the brewpub to enjoy a pint and grab a pie from Mad Monks Pizza, the in-house pizza kitchen. As you do, drink in the industrial chic design elements of the taproom, including a wall stacked with netted-in rocks and clusters of bare Edison bulbs overhead.
