Atmosphere- This is a really cool place. A brewpub that is the old Union Train Station in Erie. Do you know how many beautiful places like this (i.e. Detroit and Buffalo) are sitting abandoned and rotting? What an awesome way to preserve a piece of history. Once you enter the lobby the main dining room is to the left with all kinds of cool old train station stuff. In warmer weather they also open the upstairs back patio up which was the old boarding station. There is no train stop here anymore-but only a chain link fence separates you and freight trains flying by.

Quality and selection- The beer wasn't really impressive. Kind of disappointing given the atmosphere. Their beer isn't BAD or anything-its just really lackluster. Fortunately, they do have a number of guest taps from other local/regional breweries and some are hard to find. I believe I had Voodoo cowbell after sampling all of Union Stations offerings.

Food- We had a variety of appetizers and the food was really good. No complaints.

Service- The bartender was very nice and helpful. She also pointed us to the top floor so we could check out the old boarding area.

Overall- This is definitely worth a stop-but mainly because its a brewery in a historical building that is very well maintained.

Great atmosphere with a lot of history. Always enjoyed going and talking with the crew about the beer, and the industry. Great location in Erie, and easy walk from downtown. When you go, make sure to try the seasonal beer on tap. Definitely a stop in Erie if and when you go through.

I hit TB@US will in Erie while visiting relatives. I used to live there and I was impressed with what lengths the proprietors of this establishment did to utilize the street level space of the former New York Central Passenger station, which laid dormant and neglected during the AMTRAK years.

The beer? Well executed on all fronts. I had the Hopness Monster IPA which came from a fresh keg upon my arrival. It's a true British style and was a welcome and rich drinking experience. I also opted for the Amber which provided a nice balance after the hops blast of the IPA.

For eats, I opted for the Cobb Salad, which was generous and competently prepared. The service was a little spotty; it looked like they had several large graduation parties to serve but overall it was okay.

I wouldn't hesitate to return on my next visit; this establishment is a real plus for Erie which suffers from a plethora of lookalike chain eateries and just plain crummy bars offering little more than the "yellow fizzy stuff."

Housed in an old train station, the atmosphere is unique. It's both cool and cold (as in cavernous). It depends on where you are seated, in other words. The servers and service and the food really make this place. They were quite friendly and accommodating of our kids who we had in tow. If you're hungry, go here. If you're looking for some delicious craft beer ... eh. The Brewerie beers are average at best. After a few of their beers, we stuck with the guest taps. And, now I need to write about thirty more words. So, in sum, food and service good. Beer lacking. Oh, it was very reasonable in price I thought.

The Brewerie is a nice place with a good atmosphere and has a pretty cool interior. They also offer a large amount of specials, which is the only reason why I went there; the night we went the beers were $2 each once you purchased a $5 glass. The beers that I tried were all very sub-par and tasted like somebody's first homebrew. All of the people I was with enjoyed the beers and food, but they also enjoy Coors Light and McDonalds. I plan to avoid this place in the future but if my friends really want to go I would go along, just because the beer is inexpensive. They do have a good selection of bottles, but they are rather pricey.

The atmosphere is the best part about this brewpub. Tall ceilings, woodwork, stonework atmosphere can not be beat. I am sorry but it goes downhill from here. I have tried a number of their beers both at the brewpub and at brewfest. I am sorry but most are sub-par. They just miss the mark. The menu is limited and okay at best. Service is just okay. I don't mean to slam the place, I just wish their beers were a little more noteworthy. The thing is they have guest taps that often include Sprague Farm brews which are great beers. The 3 berry weis is my favorite Brewerie beer.
