My wife and I happened upon Flying Goose quite by accident as we were coming home from Montreal along route 89 recently. We were following the blue "Food" signs along the road, which were actually pointing us away from here, but I caught the words "Brew Pub" in the corner of my eye and pulled right in. We sat in the restaurant section and there was a great view of the mountains in the back. We could still see, but were on the street side of the restaurant. I ordered a Honey Ale, which was decent, but nothing special. I only drank half of it, as I had a lot more driving to do. I had the French onion soup made with ale for an app, it was really quite good. My wife had a salad, which she liked as well. For dinner she had the vegtable raviolis, which were huge and full of excellent flavor and I had a bacon cheese burger. Our waitress grabbed me a pint glass and growler of their IPA and all said and done the bill was about $55.00, before the tip. I would stop by there again on the way home from Montreal, but wouldn't make a special tirp.

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!

Food is very flavorful. They brew their own and do an excellent job of it. Their food options are unique. they offer beer savers and growlers. Their best, my opinion, is their pulled pork....but they also offer a sampler platter that also includes ribs. We drive 45 minutes to get here...so it is worth it.

Great place with a great selection of beer. Tavern/bar food with some nicer dishes mixed in. If you get a chance to chat with the brewer, do it, he's very willing to talk about what he's brewing up next. Also, the mug club is a steal for a local brew pub and the selection is changing regularly!

I often go here when hiking or trail running in the NH lakes region. It's cozy.

The bar has a ski lodge theme with animal heads and ski signs mounted on the wall and a sweet view or Mt. Kearsarge from the back window. Lots of wood like a log cabin and most of the taps protrude from a wooden barrel. A fire roaring in the fireplace would be the cherry on top.

I've only ever had the same bartender but he's friendly enough without being intrusive. The lunch crowd appears to be primarily locals and I think I stick out like a sore thumb. That or I just stink from hiking/running.

Most of their beers I've tried are better than BA reviews would have me believe. I was expecting butter bombs and yes, some of their beers are loaded with diacetyl, but others aren't bad or don't have any butter at all. Lagers are a bit messy with plenty of fruity esters when it isn't supposed to be there. They do have 15 different beers of their own though and that's a lot for a brewpub. They'll also let you sample before ordering a full pint so you can steer away from the butter.

The chili is hearty for a vegetarian chili. Burgers are excellent and you can tell they've been on an actual grill and not a flat top. Giant sweet 'tater fries with more 'tater than fry.

FYI 25% of their energy comes from solar.

I'll continue to go here when I'm in the NH lakes region. Easy to get to off 89 and if you're hiking Kearsarge or Ragged you'll pass right by it.
