I was lucky enough to get to visit Selkirk Abbey for the first time during their 1st anniversary celebration last weekend. I was not at all disappointed.
There were extra tents and tables set up outside, but inside the brewery was left pretty much as it normally is. A dark bar with a dozen taps and some abbey-themed decorations provide a good atmosphere by themselves, but the air of the place is of a real brewers' brewery. I just felt home there.
Beer quality is great; these guys are turning out some delicious stuff despite being just one year old. There were 10 in-house taps plus two guests; one from sister-brewery Laughing Dog with the other as Duchesse de Bourgogne -- can't argue with that! I had to stick to in-house beers, though, as it was after all their anniversary.
Service was quick, friendly and efficient, despite the big party crowds. I got to speak with one of the owners for awhile; a good time was had by all. I will absolutely be returning to Selkirk Abbey the next time I go through town.
Update 6/29/2014 -- I've been back to Selkirk Abbey a couple of times now and have sat down and had a beer with the owner Jeff. His outstanding service has converted me to a Selkirk Abbey booster for life.

As much as I hate to say this... this place doesn't work for me. I live 5 miles from the place and used to go there about twice a year.
Sorry folks, perhaps the grass is always greener...
Another 250 words or letters or something... am I there yet?

The local beer market has been booming of late, but my favorite brewery in the area is Selkirk Abbey. I was there last night for a beer release and had an outstanding as also. The staff is knowledgeable, the beer is amazing, the decor is drawn right out of a european castle. I will definitely be spending as much time there as I can.

everything was reasonably priced and i couldn't find a bad beer! everything was very drinkable, each beer was unique from the preceding beer and the staff were all friendly as well as knowledgeable. it is apparent that the staff are all "family" and make you feel genuinely welcome. we had the pleasure of meeting both jeff whitman, the owner, as well as his wife, dana, and head brewer, steve. when you start chatting with them, you really feel their passion for beer and their "desire to share really good, consistent beer." in my opinion, they are succeeding... the beer WAS good! from the outside, the place doesn't look like much more than an industrial building but the inside it well decorated with beautiful lighting, tapestries, woodwork and a fireplace. the taproom was well kept and very clean and the glasses were free of nucleotides. overall, it was a great experience. we will be going back soon and often!
