Went here as part of a beer mini vacation for which it is well suited. The Dirty Truth didn't open for a couple of hours. Took the family for pizza (real pizza as opposed to Vermont pizza). Then while the family was occupied at the great dollar store and eating world class ice cream I ran across the street and was greeted by one strange looking building, which looks like it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It was chilly and rainy, the down stairs bar was dark. Went up to the deck, which would be awesome (had it not been rainy and chilly). I was impressed that they had some outside guest beers and went for an Element, which I never saw on tap before. And then had their retro lager which was probably the best I've had a brew pub. Did not eat, only had two beers (while the family was otherwise occupied)- but I will be back.

We have been to the Northampton brewery many times over the years. The newest renovation, and rework is what has compelled a review.

A - The atmosphere is split 3 ways. The bar area, the upstairs dining and the roof deck. The bar is a little congested but not impersonal. The upstairs dining, partially open to the bar below is lined with booths and a few center tables for larger groups. The roof deck is multi level and updated. Misting nozzles take the edge off of the warmest days. The décor and audio are all good, the bar area has several large flat screens.

Q - The food and beer are very good. Rarely is the kitchen "off". The menu is pub fare and now a focus on flatbread makes for a nice addition. The beer is solid, several standard offerings like ESB, and a variety of hop forward IPA's.
S- Service is sustained by many long time staff members who keep the service consistent. The brew team is great, kitchen very solid.
S - The food selection has some depth, specials are supported by use of local seasonal farm products. The beers are mainly house made, up to 10 drafts with some guest taps, there are some limited bottle offerings.
F - The food quality is solid, they have superb salads and now the specials have stepped up some. We enjoy the catfish bites and a pint almost weekly.
V - The value quite good. The beers are $5 a pint with short pours available. The food is well priced. A couple can do well here for under $40.
Highly recommend a visit.

Cheers

This is a great place. One of my favorite places to go. They have great selections of freshly brewed beer and I cant say I have ever had one I didnt like.

Excellent place to bring a date. Its location is in a nice and safe area where you can walk around at night. They have a roof top you can sit at in the warmer months.

The food is pretty good. They are creative and everything is good. American Food and American Beers.

I love how they always try to do something new. They are innovators and they are good at it. Every time I leave I can't wait to go back. There aren't very many places that make me feel this way

I cannot say enough good things about this place.

It's got a great feel, a nice comfy atmosphere.
When the weather is nice, and the patio is open, the rating for atmosphere goes thru the roof!
So many options of where to sit.

The quality of the beer is around average for a brew-pub. They've got there standout beers, but you can also get some really average ones.

The staff has always been really nice.

The reason I give the selection a tough score is because they don't really have much besides their beers. But thats why you should be going there... to get their beers.

The food is great, and the prices are great!
