Took the trek out there a couple of times now...

simply ? worth it. Easily worth the 40min-ish drive from Edison.

Atmosphere ? cozy corner/neighborhood bar type, you could drive right by it. The interior is clean and pretty small (not a complaint), probably about 12 seats at the bar and a few tables in the body of the place.

Excellent beer selection and they are into their beers (especially Weyerbacher). Last night I had (on tap) Hop Wallop, Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti (holy wow), Long Trail Coffee Stout and my buddy had DFH Fort, Riverhorse Oatmeal Stout, Flying Fish Dubbel, and Victory St. Victorious ($5 a pint!).

The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, the crowd is also friendly. Really a nice relaxed place to enjoy some great brews. You can bring in food (or have it delivered). The basic amenities are 2 large flat screen TVs and one by the tables that has a N64 hooked up to it.. nothing like rockin it to mario kart 64 while downing a quality beverage.

Considering the excellent beer we downed our bill was very reasonable. (1,051 characters)

hows it going...
well everybody, we have some bad news. do to a sequence of uncontrollable events, at the end of the month we will be closing the doors to the copper mine. we apologize but this has been a very tough and stressful decision to make. we are very grateful and appreciative of all the awesome people who we met over the last almost 7 years. it has been a great feeling to have created a place where people like to hang out and to know people like what we do enough to have made us one of the most liked and recognized beer bars in the state. everybody has been really great and supportive of what we have done here over the past several years.
the last day will be friday june 26th. so up until then we will be running thru the last of our keg inventory, and will be tapping some great beers from the cellar. to say thank you, beers will be $2 off, most growlers will be half off and if you have a kegerator some kegs will be for sale. if you have growlers remember to bring them, we are almost out.
in closing, thank you. I hope I get to see everybody before we close. this truly has been fun and it was great meeting all of you. please keep in contact. and always remember, drink beer not labels.
cheers (1,313 characters)

Nice selection of craft beer. Regularly rotated selections, which range to satisfy everyone's taste. 24 taps or so, plus bottle selection. The decor is basic. Just a neighborhood bar from the outside, but a craft beer experience once you are inside. It tends to get a bit hot inside, so dress accordingly.

Food not sold on premises, but local delivery is allowed and encouraged. (379 characters)

Copper Mine looks kind of nondescript from the outside but it's got a lot going on inside. It has around 20 beers on tap. I wasn't too impressed with the bartending but it wasn't bad enough to make it my only visit. The atmosphere was pretty lively on a Saturday night. I like this type of neighborhood bar and I hope I'll be back to Copper Mine more often. (357 characters)

Well copper is pretty much one of my favorite beers in the area. The tap selection is always rotating and here and there something really good will show up. Bottle selection is also great but come on on your at a bar to have some good drafts. If your in the area stop by and check out Copper you will not regret it. (315 characters)

Luckily i work near the copper mine so i'm able to stop over once in a while. This place is great, everything that has been said in other reviews is true. Vito is a good guy and knows his stuff. Every once in a while he'll have an ageable keg from a past year, which is cool (i e weyerbacher quad 2011).
Overall, a great place for the beer enthusiast to stop and kill a few hours. (380 characters)

This is a place that you need to come, bring a friend or two, and see for yourself. No Food, No Frill, Just Beer and good company. It's nice to drink a beer amongst friends and enjoy something that you have never had. And then, fill up your growler and take some home too. I can't say anymore. A litter hard to get to and a bit out of the way, but makes up for it once you get there.
If you decide to try everything on draft and stay awhile, they have menus if you want to order out for delivery.
