This is a very nice brewpub in a picturesque location at the base of the wintergreen resort, which I was visiting because my wife plays in the festival orchestra.

The place is a nice looking restuarant overall with a cool looking bar, and some nice seating, enough for maybe 100 I'd say in a mountain lodge feel. The outside is a little rough with still only gravel roads and no real parking scheme but overall its cool and adds to the country vibe of everything!

The quality of the beer produced here is notable, out of the 10 beers they had on draft I'd say I was pretty into 4 of them after having the sample of all of them, maybe 1-2 being really nice. The beers they have tend to be geared more towards some German styles than a lot of American or Belgian style ales, but thats cool and different than most breweries these days.

The food was nice, I had a smoked meat platter and my wife had a quesadilla, my meat platter was very good if you like charred smoked meat and her quesadilla was decent.

The servers were very nice and pretty helpful with the menu though I didn't particularly feel like our waitress knew a ton about their beer, but it was helpful enough.

Overall a nice place and I can see why they have won some awards because their beer is crafted quite well! (1,287 characters)

Visited on a mid-summer Thursday evening. Medium busy but server said it was a lot busier than expected. Seated right away but waited about 15 minutes for server to stop by. Not in a rush but would have been nice to get a drink order in. Service was friendly and good after initial slowness. Food was excellent. Would def try again. Hopefully they will have enough staff. (371 characters)

Great restaurant as well as brew pub. Packed with people having a great time. Many there for food as well as beer. Good bar with liquor and wine well supplied as well.
A bit disappointed that "flights" were fixed. So I skipped these. However, they had "shorties"/half pours. So sampling was still very easy, affordable and not toxic if you wanted more than a few.
Surprised and very happy to see so many "one offs" and variants on the tap list. All were great. Examples we tried included very good versions of Dbl Amber IPA, Imp Coffee Stout, Tart Saison with Cherries and a very nice steam brewed Tripel.
Nice eclectic menu of appetizers, sandwiches and entrees. Everything we ordered was well prepared, attractive and delicious.
Had a great time and wished I could have stayed longer.
DB is truly in the middle of nowhere, but very worth the drive. (854 characters)
