I stopped in here w/ HellsBells24 after stopping at The Andersons and before the Mudhens game. We definitely made a great choice stopping here.

Atmosphere: This has the best atmosphere of any brewpub I've ever been too. The building was old school brick and has been around since the 1850's. This place is like a museum for old beer signs, lights, bottle, glasses, cans, openers, etc...I've never seen such an amazing selection of old signs, bottles, beer memorabilia. If you have been drinking beer for a long time, you will see some things you haven't seen in a while. There are a few TVs on the wall and by the bar and the brewing equipment is visable from all parts of the bar and sitting area.

Quality: Everything we had here was high quality. From the beers to the food to the service, all of it was top notch.

Service: The service was very good. The bar tender gave us a few samples of the beers not part of the sampler, our beers, water, food all came out real quick. The bartender was knowlegdable of all the beers, which was nice. They also have a shuttle service that is free to the Mudhens games (you just have to tip the driver). They drive and pick you up right in front of the stadium. The driver was going to recommend some places for us to check out if we were staying in town for the night.

Selection: They had a nice selection of beer and food. For the beers, they had Buckeye Beer (a very nice lager), a pale ale, a Centennial IPA on the hand pull, a malty red and vienna lager, a saison, and a oak aged cherry stout. We took a growler to the cherry stout to go. All of the beers were good, especially the stout, buckeye, and IPA. They had a nice and reasonable food menu that had plenty of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizza, and a few main dishes. We split a chicken, pepper, and pesto pizza and a pepperoni, spicy sausage, and green pepper pizzas. They were some of the best pizzas I've had at any restaurant and were very reasonable at 8.95 each. They had a beer for everyone....light, hoppy, malty, etc....They also had a full bar for the non beer drinkers.

Food: The pizzas we had (also above) was very good and reasonable.

Value: Like I mentioned above, the prices here are quite reasonable. All the food was under $10 except for the main dishes and the beer was $4.50 for a six beer sampler, $3.50 for a pint, or $8.75 for a pitcher.

Overall: This was one of the best brewpubs I've every been to and I've been to some nice ones. The atmosphere was the nicest, and the food and beers were very good too. Anyone going through Toledo or wanting to make a day trip (stopping at a few beer stores too), this is worth the stop. Its also not too far off I-75, which is nice. Highly, highly recommended.

The brewpub/restaurant has a lot character. It is set in the second floor an old 19th Century hotel that also houses several other businesses, including a steakhouse, pastery shop, pub, restaurant and brewery. Each of these are very distinctive. It also contains a wonderful collection of beer memorabilia in the Toledo Brewing Hall of Fame & Museum. The glassed-in copper colored mash tun and kettle are the defining features of the pub. The Tap Room (bar) on the main floor (second floor) also has a mixed old world new world character with brick walls and new wood tables and chairs both raised and regular height.. The wood bar is located on the far wall with a large selection of spirits and booze in front of a large mirrored wall. They serve only Maumee Bay beers with 11 taps flowing, some regular, others seasonal.

Most of the beers are very good. For food, the specialty of the house is pizza, baked in a wood fired oven. The menu is pretty full featured and diverse, since it is adjoined by at least 2 resturants. I have sampled many items from the menu and found the food to be good but not great. The prices are very reasonable and I highly recommend this place for a good drinking and dining experience.
