A friend of mine and I stopped by on our way up Route 89. The atmosphere was better than average: while it had the "typical" outdoorsy bric-a-brac, it did have a beautiful view of nearby Mt. Kearsage out the back window. If you sit at the bar, as we did, you will view the taps and the mugs hanging from the ceiling.

The bartender was friendly and mellow. With so many beers on tap, we asked him what was tapped most recently, and he named the three that were. He recommended the IPA, which my friend tried, and it was decent--a bit heartier in terms of body than most IPA's, decent amount of American hops, but not an unbalanced beer by any means.

They were out of at least two of the beers on the eighteen-beer menu. I think the beer menu lists every beer they offer, not necessarily the ones on tap. They may wish to offer a daily beer list, because stating what you don't currently have on tap is not very useful.

We each had two beers. I had the Bock and the Strong Brown Ale. I wasn't overly-impressed with either--they each had some off tastes that I could not place--but both were better than average. My friend had the Stout and the Barley Wine. The former was pretty decent, but the latter was excellent. The Stout had the appropriate roasted barley/chocolate malt nose, slightly on the thin side body-wise, but tasted pretty comfortable. The Barley Wine was the stand-out of the four we tried--despite the high alcohol, it didn't cross over into sickly-sweet land and stayed well-balanced between malt and hop, a rarity for many brewpub Barleywines.

For lunch, I had the Texas sausage sandwich. Now, while the Texas sausage was made locally, I realized it was named due to its girth and spiciness. It looked like a straight kielbasa, and had a decent amount of red pepper flakes to turn the heat up. The caramelized onions were a nice touch. The fries were better than typical, but fries don't excite me much anymore. My friend had the pulled pork sandwich. It tasted good, but had too much sauce. I find that oversauced pulled pork usually is a coverup for pork that wasn't smoked but cooked some other way. It still tasted very good.

We got a couple of growlers to go ($8 apiece/ $1 for deposit). Unfortunately, they won't fill a growler of barleywine, though we would have paid twice the asking price!

I would go again if I were in the area. Good time.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch and to try the beers. The pub is situated in a great hilltop setting so that a scenic mountain view is available across the valley from the dining area. The pub is decorated with stuffed moose heads, beer signs, etc. so that it was a cozy feeling that I like in a brewpub setting.

We ordered a sampler flight of 5 beers of our choice. Each one was brewed very well to style and exceeded the style guidelines so that our scoring system gave the beers an overall grade of a B. (It's unusual for our scoring mechanism to get a score in that realm, so this brewery is doing some good things.) A Flanders Red was our favorite, and the Double IPA was right behind.

The food menu was a little better that typical pub fare, and we enjoyed our meal. If we're in the area we'd definitely go back here again.

Beautiful view and a bunch of good beers made in house. We were driving back from Ruggles mine and were lucky enough to stumble upon this place. Definitely worth a stop in if within driving distance! Food was good though may have been a bit on the expensive side. Great ipa's and they fill growlers. I'll absolutely be back!
