Been psyched to check this place out, finally got the chance last night and brought the family...

We arrived at 5:30 (Friday) and the parking lot was already packed - but plenty out back at the Ace Hardware. Atmosphere was awesome - not overdone.. dark wood, pleasant lighting, and a fireplace that we sat in front of on a comfortable couch while the bar waitress brought me a Centenial IPA.

I thought the service was excellent, esp given the amount of time they've been open (1 mo now) and the crowd. From the hostess, to the bar waitress, to our table waitress, to the bartender ... all were on top of their game.

Beer selection was simply outstanding, and they're having a "mini Hop Fest" to celebrate their 1 mo. anniversary. Enjoyed a Founders Centenial IPA before dinner, a Bell's HopSlam with, and a Stoudt's Fat Dog to finish it off. The menu selection was right-sized for this place. We enjoyed the Tipsy Monk mussels (a little cool, but tasty) to start, my wife had Seared Tuna 'warm Asian' salad (done just right), I had the Grilled Hangar Steak - which I simply can not rave enough about - perfectly done and sitting atop some of the creamiest garlic mashed potatoes I've ever had. The kids enjoyed a burger and a large order of chicken fingers -- the fries were AWESOME, with a terrific seasoning. They don't have a dedicated kids menu yet, but our waitress was accomodating in letting us know of the various 'kid-friendly' items they do have available.

We found the value to be EXCELLENT - I'm pretty sure no pint was over $6, entrees were all 12-19, and somehow my wife's seared tuna salad was only 9!

I even picked up a bomber of Russian River Damnation to go ... Can't wait to hit this place regularly.

Craft Ale House is a great place to sample some great beers or have an excellent dinner! Only real drawback is the limited seating! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Always an excellent selection on draft and a huge bottle list! Offers discounts on 6 packs to go!

Stopped in here with some fellow BA's earlier last week. This was our second choice of the night but we ended up being pleasantly surprised with how it was. The whole place is rather spacious which was nice when you needed to walk around to the bathrooms or over to the beer coolers along the left side wall. The quality was very nice, clean looking just well kept and cozy. The selection was pretty solid with the minor exception that most of the beer we were asking for off the bottle list were sold out. Pretty bummed when you see Parabola on there and it's not actually available at the moment. The food looked good from what I could see others eating but I hadn't ordered any myself. Overall the value of the place is worth checking out, they also give discounts on 6 packs when you buy them for take-out. Very good service also, Justin was a great bartender to us and I wanna make sure he gets a proper thank you on here to him. If I ever end up in Limerick again someday I'll be sure to stop back into this pub for a good round or two.
