My friends and I went here on a Sunday for a relatively early dinner.
Walking into this place - which, by driving by car is not so easy to see at first, because of the thin entranceway - you have to walk down a somewhat elegant, certainly classy, long hallway. The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness. It is trendy, modern and very clean, somewhat formal.
My friends and I were immediately seated at a table. The waiter was very friendly and marginally knowledgeable about beer. He was quick to offer us the option of a sampler. The beers were varied, and some of them, most notibly the rauchweizen, were not so common for brewpubs (IMO - anyway).
The beers were all quite good - a bit on the hoppy side - and all smooth. Only the honey wheat was a bit weak. Otherwise, they were above-average to quite good.
The food was decent. The selection, though limited, was varied. The prices for the beer and food were reasonable, especially considering the area. A friend of mine and I ordered the rib stew and another friend had a hamburger. Again, the food was decent - nothing great - but not bad at all.
We were a bit disappointed that they were not able to fill a growler of the dry stout or the IPA (which was on the hand pump- we realize that it takes a bit longer - but, as the waiter admitted before we said anything - and by simple observation, it was rather slow there anyway.) Be that as it may, overall, it was worth the not-so-close drive, especially for the beers - which was the whole point anyway!
Another thing that was somewhat pleasantly surprising was that the growlers were sealed in plastic.
If you are in the area, or not ridiculously far, it's worth the trip!
