I've been meaning to hit this place for some time. Glad I finally did.

Beer selection was actually great in terms of craft beers. I reviewed the beers separately.

Bartender could have been a bit more knowledgeable for my taste, but the place overall was great would definitely come back.

Foodwise, very good...had a house salad, and the fish and chips...was listed as an appetizer, but was a good size portion, served with sweet potato fries.

What happened to this great place?? Looked like it was goin out of business, no one there, restaurant closed off, making for a small room with the unstocked, uncared for bar. Bartender was clueless, credit card machine did not work, only thing is they still had some decent craft beers, but not up to old standards. Hope they intend on upgrading fast, super disappointed here!!!

This is one of the few hotel bars that you may find across the country that has more than one or a few great beers on draft. The bar / restaurant has a dark wood, old school but slightly upscale bar room feel to it. The bar is off to the one end and is U shaped, with room for about 12 or so. A few TVs are around the bar.

But we stopped here for the beer. There is a rotating beer menu that lists the latest offerings. Since it is the winter season, there are an abundance of winter beers on draft. Fegley's Rude Elf, Ithaca Cold Front, SN Celebration, St. Bernardus Christmas Ale, Delirium Noel, Sly Fox Christmas Ale, and Scaldis Noel created a difficult dilemma on what to drink. Hofbrau Munich Original was also on. There were a handdulf of bottle specials for $4.50, which included Mad Elf. The beers we had were fresh and served in proper glassware.

Service was prompt. Didn't have any food. This is defintely a worthy beer stop if you are in the Warren area.

This is by far one of my favorite beer bars in central NJ! They have 11 taps of ALL craft beer (never put any macro on tap), and it's constantly rotating other than the 1 tap of Hofbrau Munich Original. They get many difficult to come by beers on tap as well as having a very good "secret stash" of bottles. They host many tap take-over and other special events that are always excellent! During the week it's a very relaxed environment, and mostly full of craft drinkers. It can get a bit rowdy on weekends since it's at a hotel that hosts many weddings. The bands that play there range from awful to pretty good, but due to the size of the place it can tend to be too loud on Friday/Saturday nights, but there is a covered patio just outside if you want to escape the noise. The bartenders are excellent, but some of the servers, when sitting at a table getting food as well, have given me a bit of trouble. Overall though I highly recommend this place!

I love this place! Never was a beer person until my co-workers brought me here and had me sample some of the fine beers available. I always hated beer and am not your so-called beer expert. That was until I found a place that had real beer. They let you sample what is available, and now I've found there truly is a beer for every taste. I know I am preaching to the choir, but needed to review this place because I they deserve credit for turning a non-beer drinker into someone that now knows the difference between macro crap and real beer. They draw a loyal following and many others that would not normally go to a beer bar, since they are in a hotel. I love seeing the expressions on new comers that would not expect 10 taps of beer loving goodness. Also, they get women at the bar! Not many beer bars can claim that.

I've been going to the tap room for years, meetin up with some of the other beer aficionados every Tuesday. Eva, Rachael and Carli are great servers and I love the wings there. They have happy hour with a dollar off drafts and some food to munch every day. There are always have great draft selections and my favorites, Rochefort and St Bernardus in bottles. When I went last night, they had St Bernardus on tap, so I was in my glory! The place put on an awesome Belgian event last year. I couldn't believe what great bottles they were serving for such a small price to enter. Looking forward to the next event, 10/20/11 - West Coast Beer and Food.
