This good sized brewpub is located in a very new shopping complex on the outskirts of downtown Blacksburgh, not far from the VT campus. It's a very nice area and fairly easy to find from I-81 (5 to 10 minutes tops). I was going to eat here but during my visit on 5/27/09 there was an electrical outage so I ended up coming back after eating elsewhere (The Cellar) and did not sample any of their food, which appeared wholesome enough from what I could tell. According to the locals they have good wings and pulled pork, etc. Prices looked fair for a somewhat upscale drinking establishment. The place is quite large with 35-40% dedicated to a dining section, simple, nice looking seating and tables away from the bar area where you might bring family, a date, etc. The bar is fairly expansive and on this Monday night there was plenty of elbow room and excellent, attentive service. I will have to say that K.T., or Katie (not sure which), was extraordinarily cheerful and friendly including a reasonable appreciation of the brews she was pedaling. She engaged in good conversation and added significantly to the enjoyment of the place with all patrons from what I could see. Other staff were also on the ball and helpful. Of the three brews I had, two were so-so to good, and one was very good (the seasonal IPA). I was disappointed to find the selection here, for such a large, impressive facility, to be very pedestrian. The stout and brown ale were decent choices (although I was not too fond of the brown ale/maroon), and the IPA was great but brewed only as a seasonal, soon to be shelved for a few quarters! In this day and age I hardly think of a standard IPA as an exotic seasonal selection. Reserve that for DIPA's and Barleywine's, etc. (if you must). Otherwise, everything was on the lighter side (Hefe, light lager, pale ale, etc.) perhaps more tailored to the college drinkers and unsuspecting grits & gravy crowd. Not designed for the true Beer Advocate. That said, the place was still smacking of newness, numerous large televisions with various sports viewing, a big pool table area with at least 6-8 tables as I recall, a good music system and copious seating. It certainly has potential if they can further develop their beer quality and selection. Next time I visit the area I will plan to sample their food as well, and hope to see an even more impressive operation. Definitely stop in and hope for a good seasonal!
