A: A nice size complex with plenty of parking. Great full size patio outside adjoined to brewpub. When you get inside it has the feel of a large German drinking house, a lot of open area, noisy, and plenty of drinking going on. The only pitfall of this place is that it can get really crowded and hard to find even a place to comfortably sit and drink. You may have to wait for others to leave before you can find a good place to sit.

S: The place was packed, but the service never faltered. There are several servers walking around at all times to get you another beer. A friendly and knowledgeable staff that are excited about their job.

SE: A good, but not great selection. They have the keystone styles, but not enough of the special stuff. I asked if they had any unique brews and was told, "yes, but only for mug members" or something like that. Yeah, f me I only went out of my way to come here....Regardless, you will find something you like and have a chance to try a variety of styles.

F: I had the pulled pork sandwich named the Backwoods Bastard. A gigantic sandwich with good quality. A little too buttered up for my liking, but it is what it is. Still a good quality meal and value.
