Visited the Northampton Brewery as part of a Western MA brewpub crawl. It was a beautiful day outside so we opted to sit on the deck. Deck is well done, most of the seating is covered, and they have a mister going during very hot times. Great place to hang out and have a beer. Inside seems comfortable/relaxed as well. The food and beer both are decent, but not spectacular. For a brewpub sistered with Portsmouth, you would expect a bit more variety and flavor in their beers, but the ones I have tasted were pretty middle of the road. The food is tasty enough, but nothing outstanding. Reasonable mix of normal pub food with some vegetarian offerings thrown in. Service was good all around. Prompt refills, no delays in getting food or attention when required. Selection was average. As mentioned before, the beer selection was pretty ho hum, most of the self brewed were of the liter variety, with the only darker/more adventurous offering the Black Cat Stout. Prices were reasonable and in line with the food offerings. Most beers were available in 8, 12 or 16 oz pours, so you have choices if on a budget.

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.
