The finished wood atmosphere flowing through this spacious restaurant/brewery really ended up being the most impressive part of our visit. There's a nice & inviting feeling about this place.
The quality of both their food and beer, however, were just a tad of a letdown. I can't say anything too harsh or negative because I did overall enjoy the Eighty-Five IPA that I drank, and the Fish & Chips were adequate, but I was expecting more.
The waiters that interacted with us during our visit were very friendly and helpful.
The selection of beers wasn't anything special, and there was simply no offering for lovers of higher ABV beers.
I like this place alright, but I didn't love it like I wanted to.

This is a casual, laid back brew pub, with no pretense or airs. All are welcome, all feel welcome. There is a large bar area with good seating and wide open views of the bar and the large screen TVs. The restaurant seating is spacious and can accommodate parties from 2 to 50. There is a good view of the brewing kettles and collegiate/olde tyme decor on the walls.
The food is simply prepared but excellent in both quality and value. Wednesdays are typically discount pint night, and nightly specials keep most menu items under $10. There is a good selection of food to choose from, from typical Irish pub fare to more cross-cultural items. The kitchen usually has fresh fish specials, as well as creative meals only available once a week.
You simply must have the onion rings. The largest, best battered rings I have ever personally witnessed. One basket will feed two easily, three comfortably, four if two are dieting. At last glance, the menu item was $4.50.
The fish and chips are equally impressive. Shepherd's Pie is well done, as well as the buffalo burgers, wraps, and soups.
I recommend sitting in the window, better for people watching.
