Another stop on our way into NC. This place is quite impressive from the outside...looks like something you would find in the Rockies! Inside, there is tons of seating with a long bar lining most of the back wall. We sat at the bar and noticed all of the taxidermy...like being in a mini Cabelas!

The offerings were not very impressive...almost everything was lager based, which goes with the season, but their entire draft list centered on Octoberfest. We got a flight of 6 beers, and most of them were also just meh. The food menu was, jeez, bland as well. Nothing jumped out at us, so we just ordered some soup and decided to eat elsewhere. Our bartender was good, but we didn't ask her much.

Overall this is a pretty neat place that I would not go out of my way for. If you are doing the brewery tour with Blue Mountain and Wild Wolf, it makes perfect sense to stop by though. (883 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)
