Went for lunch with friends while in the Poconos. Oddly located in a small mall of sorts occupying a large portion of the upper floor and their Belgian beer garden holding a good part of the lower floor.
There's a long bar seating a dozen and a half with just as many booths and bar tables running it's length adjacently. It's a brick back bar with diamond plating shelves and there are mug club mugs hanging a good length of the way down. Behind the bar lies a separate dining area riddled amongst copper brewing vessels. They have a fairly large menu with identified "made with beers" items from soups and aps to entrees. the food was very good and the desserts were terrific. Pouring 7 house taps, Hoegaarden, cider and lemonade. The Steelworkers Oatmeal Stout was outstanding and they made an Apricot coriander beer that was tasty and pleasantly drinkable as well. Collectively, we tried everything they had on tap and there wasn't a clunker in the lot. On a more recent visit we drank the Mirabelle, a plum lambic, which I thought was real damn nice. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgeable and the place was nice and clean with a good decor (early period bar scene paintings and banners from award winning beers they've made). Pretty much just what I'm looking for in a brewpub.

Now, come 4 PM they open the belgian beer garden downstairs. (So we mulled around town 'til then). An outstanding Belgian beer selection, although slightly pricey, in a dimly lit lounge set up with a pool table and comfy couches and chill chairs. A nice comfortable joint overall. Certainly well worth waiting around 'til 4 to visit.
