The Beer Research Institute

The Beer Research Institute serves scratch food and craft beer. Owner Matt Trethewey says the restaurant is all about his passion for brewing, which “started about 13 years ago. My partner and I were homebrewers, and this all started in my garage.” The burgers are big, the attitude is fierce, and it may be the only place in town that you find “Meat Candy.”
