Named "JJ’s."

2005

The bar officially became the "Hideaway" in 2005. "Hideaway" had opened a week before gun deer season that year in November.

At that time, we renovated the bar top, floors, replaced coolers and modernized the kitchen.

Jay Dassow got a Friday night fish fry going and weekend breakfast along with burgers, sandwiches and pizza.

2014

We built the back enclosed patio. We moved the bar out and added more seating and a second speed rail to help serve customers a lot faster. The tapper system was also moved back to back with the barrels, making it the coldest beer in the area!

We also hired our first a manager in 2014 to help with the daily responsibilities of running the business.
