Stopped in this place with yourefragile on our way from DC down to Winstom-Salem for the Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate release. Kind of out in the middle of nowhere, though the area is beautiful. Also impressive that there are three breweries in close proximity to one another here.
First off, the parking lot is massive and consists of a gravel circle with more than enough room. Ahead is a nice amphitheater, which I assume is used for concerts. Once we got inside, there was a band playing off to the left. Nothing too loud, and fairly enjoyable. Nice hunting lodge theme throughout the place, though quite tastefully done. The brewing equipment is viewable behind the bar, where we sat down.
Good service from the start. The place was quite busy, but the bartender did a good job coming back to us. As would be expected, plenty of German-style lagers on the menu. No surprise, as Jason excels here. Food menu was pretty diverse. There were approximately 10 beers on tap, with 4 regulars and then 6 or so new beers.
The food was pretty good and at a reasonable price. I also loved the fact that they had multiple types of branded glassware -- pints, tulips, and weizen glasses.
Very cool vibe at this place. I will definitely return the next time I'm headed down that way.
