This is a great brewery to try. While my only criticism is it's small size (you'll be waiting a while on the weekends to get a table), it's really quite inexpensive given the excellent quality of the beer ($1.50 for a sample of the awesome White Rajah!). It's a casual place, with good (but not outstanding) barbeque, very helpful service, and a wine section where you can hang out (and also sample beers) while waiting for a table. Oh, and even though they have awesome Brew Kettle beers, they also have other great beers just so for those who feel like they need even more. Excellent brewery and restaurant! (609 characters)

The ultimate mess salad (topped with pulled pork and cole slaw was excellent (according to my wife) and the smoked wings were also very tasty (according to my taste buds). I sampled four of their beers with the Big Woody Lager coming out on top. They have a good selection of other beers that you can sample. All in all a good place to stop if you are driving along I-80. (373 characters)

Overall great experience. Great line up of beers on tap, and great food. Last time I was there, brewer was actually behind the bar and served me my beer. I wouldn't have known otherwise, but my wife and I were having a beer at the bar and talking about our upcoming homebrew recipe, which we were going to buy there before we left. Next thing I knew, he was chatting it up us, and helped us complete our recipe. Very cool! (422 characters)

Overall a cool place and I enjoyed my visit. Food was terrific. The service was quick and friendly. Our waitress seemed knowledgeable . . . My only complaint about The Brew Kettle was the lack of house brews. They carried a lot of beer from many respected breweries but only had about 7 or so house taps. If in the area I would go back again for sure though. (358 characters)
