Set in a boxy, orange cinderblock building next to the railroad tracks, this small bar with the giant beaver in a cowboy hat painted on its wall doesn’t look like much from the outside. But “The Beaver,” as locals affectionately call it, is a country bar with more character than most. Owned by two brothers, it’s filled with honky-tonk trinkets and colorful patrons who come for the free jukebox, live music, and cheap drinks. On Sunday afternoons you see crowds gathering -- often arriving by motorcycle -- for live bands and relaxing on the small front deck.
