This pool hall and bar has been in continuous operation since 1892 thanks to its loyal blue-collar customers and inexpensive beer.

Brazen Hussy Brewery:
This small brewery was purchased out of bankruptcy and renamed Brazen Hussy as a gimmick. The bottles of “blonde” (light), “brunette” (dark), and “redhead” (amber) beer featuring bikini-clad models on the labels are popular with the young college crowd. The brewery has a history of high employee turnover, dating back before even the bankruptcy and change in ownership. Some former employees tell stories of hearing cries for help coming from the giant beer tanks and the feeling of being watched.
This restaurant has serviced the community since the 1960s, but has been sold several times and has undergone many renovations. It is known for its good, stickto-your-ribs food and homemade buttermilk biscuits, as well as for being a friendly study spot that provides an endless supply of coffee.
