I just returned from my first trip to Fat Heads a few hours ago. Here are my thoughts.

Atmoshphere. Quite good. Very spacious, nice hard wooden tables, visible brew house, huge bar, there might be seating for 500 (?) and beer signage (craft brewery logos painted on walls, coasters from around the world framed and displayed in what unfortunately look like kind of cheap, mass produced frames...but they are pleasant enough and celebrate beer so what the heck...) a small "sports" area with dart boards and "bowling." It felt comfortable there.

Quality. Good, especially in the presentation of the beer.

Service. Just fine. I knew much more about the products than our waitress but that is not a surprise. She was responsive, courteous and smiled a lot.

Selection. 8 of their own beers (a few of them quite good indeed) and something like 20 "guest" beers that included Ommegang Ale 2009, Aventinus (!), North Coast Brother Thelonius, 2 from Avery, NH Mad Hatter, DFH 90 Minute, Gouden Carolous Cuvee van de Keizer, North Coast Old Rasputin, Bell's Oberon, Avery Hog Heaven American Barleywine, Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere Harvest, Boulder Beer Co. Flashback Anniversary Ale, Left Hand Sawtooth Ale, Troegs Hop Back Amber ale and Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA.

Food. Alot of fun. Many huuuge and funny named sandwiches and "headwiches" so named because they are roughly the size of your head. Not just big but the food was good.

Value. Four in my group and we had 2 dinners, a bowl of soup, a huge bowl of salad (there was a head of lettuce in the salad) and 11 or 12 beers for $59.09. I think that is inexpensive.

More of a resturan then the brewery itself, but still has a great tap list and everything on the menu is delicious. Wish they'd build one closer to where I live.

Great food, great beer & great ambience. This is a good place to go for the game, go for lunch, dinner or just because. Large selection of Fat Heads brews & they fill growlers.
