Good to know:
-CASH ONLY! Be sure you have cash with you before making the voyage out to Ava. Trust us, you don’t want to get there and realize you can’t buy anything!
–Be adventurous! You aren’t going to find anything run of the mill here. The brewers at Scratch are creative and enjoy pushing the envelope. You should start with a small tasting glass, or a flight to get a feel for what you like.
-Change is good! Because they like experimenting and using seasonal ingredients, the menu changes weekly at Scratch. Don’t go expecting to have a favorite from your last visit. Chances are it will not be on the menu this time. Check their website or Facebook page to view their current menu if you want to know what they are currently serving.
-Pace yourself! Most of the brews at Scratch are higher gravity than your average beer. Pay attention to alcohol content and enjoy slowly. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon.
