AN AMERICAN BEER HALL
The Brakeman is an American beer and rec hall by NoHo Hospitality Group featuring rotating drafts of craft beers and serving up buckets of fried chicken, honey-butter biscuits, and local farmstand sides from its adjoining neighbor, Penny Red’s. The cocktail bar offers classic craft spirits and seasonal frozen drinks.
Our downtown hangout is stocked with big screen TVs, foosball, table shuffleboard, and beer pong, with garage doors that open into Parker’s Alley and Farmer Street in the warmer months.
