“The Public House will serve as a central hub for Evans Brewing, where craft beer enthusiasts can sample a comprehensive menu of Evans offerings as well as tasty pub food as they enjoy a great craft beer environment,” said Evan Rapport, Vice President of Evans Brewing Company.  “The location of the Public House – so close to a large international university, a major regional rail station and in a busy downtown district – will help to spread the word and increase recognition for Evans award-winning craft beers.”
