The ambience at both locations of More Brewing Company is filled with modern décor, while still maintaining the comfort and warmth expected from the hospitality industry. You can trust your servers to be knowledgeable and courteous, offering to help you out with their recommendations of the most popular items of the brewery.
Apart from launches and beer releases, More Brewing Company also hosts brunches, pop up shops, live nights, yoga events, and even trivia nights. Their trivia nights have been extremely popular in the past, with them having organized trivia nights for Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Parks and Recreation, Home Alone, The Office, and Stranger Things.
More Brewing Company also has an online shop from where they sell a variety of merchandise, from bottle openers to hats and hoodies.
