Eddyline Pizzeria & Brewpub

Eddyline is about being a comfortable place to stop, relax, and catch up. Eddyline comes from the line separating the fast flowing current in a river from the eddy where the water slows allowing kayakers to stop, rest, catch up, and celebrate their victories. We are a family-friendly, unpretentious and casual brewpub serving wood-fired pizzas and the best craft beers brewed on site.
