Stopped by here before crashing at a hotel in Douglassville. A little bit out of the way...actually in the middle of nowhere!
The bar reminds me of something you would see in a ski resort. Lots of natural wood...kind of a rustic feel.
They have lots of high end brews here...both on tap and in bottles. You can read what they have available from beer menu place cards.
I was there pretty late on a Wednesday night, but from what I could tell, everyone there was a beer person...which may or may not always be the case.
Great little place that I will seek out again if I am in the area.
The only bad thing is that they do not take plastic...at least not when I was there...

I love this place.
It is located in an out-of-the-way setting along the banks of the Manatawny Creek. Inside, it's a nice dimly lit pub. Outside, you can sit on the expansive patio at umbrella tables.
The food is great traditional pub food, fairly priced.
The tap list is always interesting and changes often. The draught menu is descriptive, informational, and often includes staff reviews. And I love it that they have Yuengling for the unadventurous, but the description just says "Duh." The bottle list is big and outstanding. And the staff is knowledgeable.
One of my favorite things is the free music on Sundays in the summer out in the band shell on the lawn. Bring your family and some chairs or blankets, sip some great beer, and listen to music. It is absolutely one of my top places to hear a band.
I go here every chance I get, and regret every time I have to drive by the road which leads to it and don't have time to stop.

Had dinner and beer here on a Saturday night with some friends.
We sat in the bar area, not the dining room which had a nice pub feel to it, although a pit cramped, they fit in as many booths as possible. L shaped bar. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we didn't get a chance to check out their patio.
Quality of beer on their tap and bottle list was excellent, with an array of American craft beer and Belgian imports. An array of styles, so easy to find something for every palate- including some craft hard cider for my wife.
Service was good, our waiter was friendly and checked on us often. Food was tasty, our group stuck with standard bar food of wings, sandwiches, burgers, etc. They had some dinner entrees on the menu too.
My rating of $$ was based on the draft prices that were reasonable. Menu clearly indicated size and cost. Some of the limited release bottles on their list were a bit pricey.

Stopped in here for their Hoppy Easter event. I was expecting to get some Pliny the Younger that day but apparently they couldn't get a keg which sucks. The place is a lot larger than I thought it would be. The pub area is tiny but the dining area is a little large with a nice banquet area in the back. There is plenty of decor on the walls to look at. The selection of beers is very impressive. The service was very good, incredibly friendly people there. I wasn't able to get any food there that day. The only gripe I had about this place was that when we pulled up it was a cash only event. I'm not sure if it's like that all the time or if it was just because of the event they were having. Overall, I would hit this place up again one day in a heartbeat. I really enjoyed it there and would love to experience more of it soon.
