2.3/5  rDev -38.5%

Since I do not live nearby, this was a weekend excursion with my wife, and since I had read so much hype about this place, I guess that I couldn't help but get caught up in it...especially since this place markets the fact that some periodical survey rated them the #2 brewpub in the U.S. a few years ago to the point where you get brainwashed. My expectations were further heightened when I pulled up and beheld the beautifully restored former railroad station in which the brewpub resides. Then I sat down, ordered a sampler and some food, and woke up. To say that my heart came crashing down like Icarus came crashing down to earth is an understatement...this place defined overrated. The food was fried, fried, and more fried, and the beer was not impressive at all. The lone standout, which I gave a resounding A+ to, was a schwarzbier named Bitting's Black Magic...and it was a seasonal, so the odds of it being on tap if I came back the next time were very slim. I don't doubt that this place has won awards in the past, but resting on dead laurels is not the way to run a business. It'll take a lot for me to make this 'weekend excursion' again.
