Ahh... I just wrote up a big review and then it somehow didn't take. So here's the long and short:

The Good:
The beers are fantastic, as you probably already know if you live in New England. The tap selection is wide and there's almost always brewery-only bottles available, including sours and their BA variants of the Framinghammer Baltic Porter.

The Not-so-good:
It takes a long time to get to because Massachusetts is a nightmare to drive through. I'm only about 40 miles away and it took over an hour and a half. Also, while the place is decently decorated it doesn't have much of a lounge vibe to it. The building is old, but the taproom feels like a Home Depot setpiece, with lots of tracklighting and gleaming wood. That, and seating is either very limited or nonexistent. Also, we got there an hour before closing and the staff were all busy and a little curt.

The Verdict:
Worth the trip for the brewery-only beers, but don't expect a super fun brewery experience. The taproom is a place for buying beers and maybe sampling a pint; you aren't gonna have that much fun hanging out there.

Just the friendliest staff I've met at a brewery to date. They greeted me, discussed what they had on tap and made suggestions, went over their bottle list, and gave me a brief history of their brewery. I didn't ask for any of it but since I came by myself to try out the brewery they were more then happy to talk.

One of the best barrel aged programs I've seen at a brewery, along with Allagash, and by far the premier lager brewery in the US. Fantastic selection of beers on tap and bottled. Pricing is moderate to high but I cannot complain.

They don't serve food.
