I recently went to Mount Pleasant Brewing Company, which is the sister company of Mountain Town Station down the road, to check the place out, watch football games and to get a bite to eat.

When walking into the place, you're presented with a few tables, the bar then all the vents in a area behind glass. The place is quite small, but very relaxing as it's not overall loud, perfect to watch the games and socialize

The overall quality was quite good. Each of the beers we tried were tasty and what you'd envision them to be.

The Service was good also. Both of the bartenders were very courteous and attentive. When my friend and I had a question regarding particular styles...they were eager to answer and seemed knowledgeable with their beer.

The selection was quite good also. They mainly had the same beers as mountain town, which included: Cow Catcher Red Ale, Second Wind Wheat Ale, steam engine stout, coal stokers blackberry ale, Gamblers Golden Ale, Railyard Raspberry Wheat, Iron Horse IPA, Trainwreck Ale, Hobo's Breath Brown ale, and a few seasonals/specialty which were the Harvest Ale, Gruit, and a different style of wheat. A little something for everyone Being that I had all but the seasonals at Mountain town, I ended up trying the three in which all were good.

for Food, mt pleasant brewing mainly just has sandwiches and soup. the sandwiches are pretty decent portions, have some favorites and different styles (but sounded great) and come with chips. I ended up having the cheese steak sandwich and it was quite good

Overall a very reasonable place to go to price wise for beers (they were 3.50 a pint) and food (all sandwiches were 7.99), In a ways I kind of preferred going here compared to Mountain town due to the overall size and an easier time in getting a spot by the bar. I would recommend checking this place out when in the area and also purchasing their beers.

Loved the company of the staff while there. Very friendly and helpful. Small band was playing that night and they were great. The beers were great. Had a bourbon barreled maple porter that was amazing. Brewer (Kurt) was very friendly and was more than happy to show me around. Food was great, but thought cost was kind of high for a sandwich. I will go back here everytime I'm in Mt. Pleasant.

This place really has all the makings of a good brewpub: the location is fine, accessible, the bar is reasonably spacious, the decor is inviting, they have a cooler for to-go beers, and the brewery itself is visible behind the bar. The setup, in short, is perfectly acceptable. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Otter Creek in Middlebury.

That said, there are some huge problems. Foremost, the beer pretty much sucks. The only halfway decent beers I've had from them are their lagers: a Weizenbock and a caramel doppelbock were excellent, but everything else, including a few of their bottled beers, were terrible, borderline atrocious. I appreciate the experimentation with saisons and gruits, but I wish they would devote more of their energy to consistent flagships. They just don't taste good, and I feel like they have to know that.

The service is hit or miss. No one has ever been rude, but the staff are sometimes inattentive. There are clearly many regulars, and I'm not overly sensitive to being ignored, but when the beer is bad and I can't get anyone's attention to pay for it, it's frustrating.

Stopped here on the way back from a road trip. Small brew pub, wasn't a bad atmosphere just wasn't busy. The beers were good not great but worth the money. The food was reasonable and not bad. Not a huge selection just some typical sandwiches and starters. The service was ok, only one guy was working but he did a good job. Good variety on the beer selection, would have liked to seen maybe at least one bigger ABV beer to try. But over all a fun lil stop if your up by the Casino or something.
