Interesting place. As noted by another reviewer, the biggest problem here has been consistency. It seems to be getting better now, however. I have always been pleased with my service here, unlike others, and the beer is reasonably good.

Living in Fredericksburg, I've been to BG many, many times. The food is pretty good, but they are only open Thursday-Saturday. The burgers are delicious and the mussels are definitely worth trying. Many main issue with BG is consistency. For example, the 1st few times I had the Boreman's I freakin' loved it. But, other times it's barely drinkable. Same with the seasonals- some years the Oktoberfest is 3.75/5, but other years...not. I'm not sure if it's inconsistency in the brewing/ingredients, or if they have a problem with their in house taps. I like the place, but I want to love it.

This was an interesting little stop on our journey from PA to TN and back. First off, if you have a questionable GPS, you might want to be careful...mine sent me down a private road, and oh, I could see the brewery, but it was well beyond a huge iron gate that would not yield to my simple crossover vehicle.

But once we did find our way to the place, we were greeted by a friendly waitress, who informed us that they were pet-friendly, and so we sat outside with the dogs at our feet. The place looks pretty simple, probably a converted warehouse, seated within what seems like an old railcar depot of some kind. Brick facade, nice and simple outdoor seating area. Inside is pretty spacious, with a medium-sized bar, and plenty of sitting/standing room.

There was a decent selection of 8 beers or so on tap. The beers were mostly simple flagships: a lager here, a pale ale there, with a bourbon barrel stout thrown in to keep things interesting. They do sell bottles and provide growler fills. Supposedly they do serve food here, but we had already eaten, so we didn't bother looking at the menu.

The service again, was fine. Our waitress was very accommodating serving us outside, on that unusually blustery spring day. She always checked up on us and we weren't left waiting. She seemed to have a good general knowledge of the beers on tap.

It's a cool place, though if you're a typical beer geek, I doubt there's anything here you haven't seen before. Makes for a good pit stop, and it's worth checking out at least once.
