I visited the Brew Kettle late Saturday afternoon. With the many facets of the Brew Kettle, it's not the easiest place to score. This place is a brewpub, beerbar and brew-on-premesis all in one place. How do you score it?

We stepped in from the parking lot to find a long, narrow room. A long, metal topped bar stands on the left side of the room. The right side is lined with boothes. A great collection of beer trays and signs cover the walls. The BOP is at the back of the store. It's got a nice, old-school bar vibe.

The Brew Kettle serves beer from Rogue, Dogfish Head, Southern Tier and many other good beers along with their own Ring Neck brews. There were more than two dozen taps of which three were their own. The Ring Neck beers I tried were solid, but not spectacular. The guest beers had a wider range.

I really like the Brew Kettle. It's a place the locals seem to dig, and it was welcoming to a beer traveler like me. Next visit I'm getting some bbq too. (972 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)
