Local Business Highlight: Crafthaus Brewery

Posted on 6/13/2017

Crafthaus Bewery is the epitome of a “local gem”. This family-owned and operated venue was started up by Dave & Wyndee Forrest in 2014. With a small space just outside of Las Vegas, the venue feels intimate and inviting of questions and opinions on beer. When you’re hanging out at the brewery, Dave and Wyndee feel more like friends than business owners which really adds to the overall experience. Did we mention the beer is liquid gold?
