After an enjoyable tour at the New Holland brewery proper, we drove 10 minutes down the road to the pub. The tour came with 4 samples of some of NHBC's signature brews, so we concentrated on the beers we hadn't tried.

The pub was quite busy for a late Saturday afternoon, but we had no trouble finding seats at the large bar. We sat right across from the chalk board displaying what was on tap. It was an impressive selection--way too many for us to sample in one sitting. We concentrated on 5:

Full Circle--a light(er), fruity, kolsch-style beer. It was our personal favorite, to the extent that we purchased a growler before leaving.

Sundog--decent amber ale reminiscent of Samuel Adams Boston Lager (which is a good thing in my opinion)

Mother's Milk--Milk stouts seem to be one of the styles du jour and we were not disappointed by this one. My wife, who gravitates toward the lighter, fruitier beers, drained a whole pint and proclaimed that it was good.

Jabberbocky--we only had a taste but no complaints here. It was a little more bitter than other bocks/doppelbocks that I've tasted.

Pigs in a Blanket--adding smoke flavor to a beer seems to be another gimmick these days. I found it unique but don't think I'd want a whole pint. PiaB was advertised on the chalk board as a smoked maple wheat ale but I didn't taste any maple.

Service was good considering the steady stream of patrons at the bar. We split the buffalo chicken "breadstix" while we drank, and suffice it to say, it is a good complement to the beer.

The only disappointment is that they were out of the Ichabod Pumpkin Ale--one of our favorites--but the other beers more than made up for it. We would definitely come back here if we were in the area.
