Tucked inside a shared warehouse space off an alleyway—look for the orange door—Sketchbook is more a nanobrewery than microbrewery. Don't be fooled by the physical size of the place. The tiny beer works has around 16 varieties to cycle through its six taps, including an experimental "Lab" brew (a smoked porter on our visit), ready for the tasting. Take home a growler or half growler of the No Parking Session Ale or Orange Door IPA, though locals will want to join the CSB. They even crank out a couple ciders, not to mention a surprising array of t-shirts and merchandise.
