I visit the Brew Works about once a week and I go there for the atmosphere and the beer.

Upstairs the atmosphere is earthy and industrial. Dimly lit and smokey in the bar area. Just how I like it. Downstairs the scene is industrial and trendy. A nice departure when you want to have a change of scenery after your meal.

I gave the quality a 4.5 based upon the atmosphere and the beer alone. The food is just o.k. with the exception of the wings which are always either above average or outstanding. The house beers are always tasty and fresh while the beer menu downstairs is adequate.

The service is great sometimes and lousy others. I really hate having to wait for five or ten minutes to get my second or third beer.

The selection of house beers is diverse yet stable because you can always count on the Brew Works flagships like Fegley's ESB or Oatmeal Stout everytime you visit. The bottle beer selection downstairs is diverse and always changing. I usually see three or four different beers on the menu everytime I am there.

The food, as I mentioned above, is just o.k. It is usually fresh but not at all exciting. In my opinion, a chef with a menu similiar to Which Brew would make Brew Works four star.

Thank You to the Fegleys for a cool place with great beer. Cheers.
