As for the decor, you’ll find spent bullet shells beneath a resin-covered bar. Old military helmets dangling in the bathrooms as light shades. A large dog tag plaque, filled with all the names of people who donated funds toward the Nadeau’s dream is hung above the tables he built. Engraved 50 calibers as beer taps. The flavor of Marine life, known quite well to Nadeau, is as powerful as the beers he’s spent years perfecting. Years of work and investment culminated on Veterans Day (2018) when they opened doors at 8 Varney Road.
The business’ slogan is straight and to the point, in keeping with military fashion: “Enjoy your beer, that’s an order.”
