This place was a good stop on the way from NY to Maine. It was located in a pretty upscale section of town and seemed to maintain that sort of atmosphere. The place was a split level rest/pub done up in wood planks. The bar was located right in the center of the building with tables around the outside and in the upper deck.

This was a quality brewpub with many good offerings to choose from. I stopped in with two of my friends and ended up buying a beer sampler platter to split. There were 12 different beers consisting of most every style. The bartender went through the list and was very friendly. We had a bit of bar food to create a food base for drinking. It was quite good although if I had more time and money I would have liked to try some actual dinner entre's which seemed to be very popular.

We had great service the whole time and actually recieved directions for our next stop. We grabbed a few bombers to go that they were selling from a cold cooler in a nearby room. I rather enjoyed the IPA the best. This is a stop to remember for future roadies.

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
