Man, this place has got FLOOR. Ever since Humbrews’ last remodel, completed in November 2009, and the addition of the humongous, 3,000-square-foot music (and events) hall next door to the original pub, its shiny, golden oak planks have been deluged with happy feet. This space was designed for music, for dancing, for feeling like you’ve been transported to, oh, some hip big-city venue -- but with the small-town, laid-back, hell-this-is-great vibe. Why, even the ghost of the town’s old bowling alley has taken up residence here (it’s the bar), says Andy Ardell, who co-owns Humbrews with Robin Hewitt.
