About Us

Giving Back

Something the owners feel very strongly about in their journey as small business owners in the heart of the downtown, is giving back to their community. To date, The Draft House has donated over $3500 to various organizations in our county. These donations stem from the events we hold and will hopefully continue to grow as the years go on. They believe in giving back to a community that has given so many opportunities to them. 

Expanding Minds

The Hellinger’s have recently taken a craft beer brew course offered through Cornell University in hopes to not only expand their knowledge, and to extend that knowledge to their staff, but have hopes of brewing their own beers in the years to come.

Ask the Staff

Knowledgeable.  Savvy.
A lot of the job of the staff is to help educate and find the best drink suitable for you, these are some of their recommendations: 


Northern New York Fare.


Sorry, No more event to show

Personal Event Rental

The bar will be shut down completely to the general public allowing you to host a private event. Bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, company parties, the list is endless!
