Corner rowhome, renovated, minimalist decor showcasing brick, plaster, wood and metal. Bar with seating for about a dozen, a few tables will seat a few more downstairs, upstairs also has seating. Bread oven, panini press and prep area immediately behind the bar. Back room exposes brewining equipment.

8 beers on tap, available in 4oz, 8oz or 12oz pours, as well as growlers. Brewery focuses mostly on saisons, which are executed very well and all have unique charachteristics. Hoppy alea their secondary specialty and are solid. A few other styles will make the rounds from time to time. A few local wines available as well as home made soda.

Menu is minimalist and offers homade bread, and a selection of 3-4 each of cheese, charcuterie, pickled vegtable options as well as 2-3 paninis and various items. Fresh, tasty. Only concern was most of the breads, cheeses and meats cut for serving well ahead of times and placed in large plastic bins.

Service was generally nice... all hands on deck approach by all, certain customers seemed to be prefered over others based on their knowledge of what was going on.

Lots of promise here, will be back for sure.

I went to Tired Hands for yesterdays Para3 release. After my buddy and I grabbed our beers, we grabbed lunch upstairs. There was a ton of great options on tap. If I wasn't driving, I would have enjoyed them even more. The fig panini was amazing. All and all a tremendous experience

Great staff, creative and delicious food. Good Vide between staff and patrons. Beer selection was lacking coming from a brewery that has 200+ beers active in this site... Mainly IPAs, a pale ale, a Gose and a couple saisons on. Hoppier beers were a mess more or less, was not inspired by what was on. Too bad, had fond memories of beers I tasted in the past.

I've been going to Tired Hands regularly since they opened. Love the beer menu staples. Appreciate the creative recipes, freshness and use of local ingredients in their brews. You'll always be surprised with their recipes. Could do without the pretensions, absurd house rules and those darned hipsters. Table service tends to take a while too. Nothing like the rural vibe you get from the luminaries in Vermont (which I prefer) but I am truly thankful Jean chose Ardmore to set up shop since it's my back yard. IMO, it's some of the better brew on the east coast but still behind Hill Farmstead, Alchemist, Maine, Prairie (not really "east"), Oxbow, etc. They have a good chance of receiving better scores when they open the new facility around the corner from their current spot, if they bottle more, age more, expand the menu and mature a bit more.

Small little place, but worth the trip there for sure. Not a big selection of beers (possibly due to the time of year) nor food, but what they do have is very good. Went on a Saturday right when they opened & by 1 the place was completely filled & seats were at a premium.

Will definitely go back.

One of my favorite places to stop on my way down or up 476. Just nearby Nova, this place is tucked away in quiet Ardmore. Love the house-made bread, probably some of the dankest around. Candied bacon you say? Yup, they have that too, along with a nice offering of locally sourced charcuterie and fromage. Only 8 draft lines, but they never disappoint. If you ever find yourself in the area, do yourself a favor and stop by.
