I visited this place while waiting for the broken-down BA bus.

The atmosphere was interesting. A mix of 80's restaurant with an outdoor deck. It rained all day so I didn't get on the deck.

Tried one of just about each beer they had on tap. All were great.

The service was excellent and quick, even when the bus full of 30 thirsty BA's showed up.

The selection on tap was good. Many styles brewed in house and a guest tap of Magic Hat.

The food was delicious. I recommend the Killer Kowalski sandwich. It's a sliced sausage/kielbasa sandwich. (556 characters)

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.
