Housed in a beautifully restored farmhouse, this brewpub is the prettiest of the 14 currently in operation in NJ. The service is both knowledgeable and friendly, and the food is very good. It also seemed very family-oriented, as I probably saw more little children running around than at any other brewpub; this is the only reason why I didn't give it a '5' for atmosphere. They have an outdoor patio in the summertime, which is totally relaxing. When it comes to beer, they make the grand champion of porters in the state of NJ (and possibly many other locales), in the form of the Lazy Jake Porter (A+). Other good standouts include the American Pale Ale (B+) and the Double Chocolate Stout (B+). All in all, the experience is well worth the trip to this relatively out-of-the-way spot.

Vibe: The place is located in a large restored barn and has an open but "homey" feel to it. There is a bar in the center and a bunch of TVs scattered around the outside walls. It also had an outdoor bar and seating area and looked like it could be a nice spot during the summer months.
Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using pint glasses.
Service: Our waitress was friendly and was knowledgeable about both the beer and food selections.
Selection: The place had six beers on tap: four of its year round beers and two seasonal selections. A flight of all six beers was also available.
Food: I stopped by in the late afternoon and tried Ginger-Soy Shrimp Dumplings as an appetizer and a French Dip sandwich as a main course. The food was rather tasty.

Really nice place. Probably the best aspect is the decor. Nice outside patio and bar. inside is beautifully restored and has an open flow to it. Very big selection on the food menu. My Kobe burger was ok, even a little disappointing. My wife really liked her sandwich. Onion rings were large and tasty. I started with a beer sampler. The lazy Jake porter and German amber stood out, so I had one of each. The rest were ok, not great. Overall worth visiting for the experience if not for the beer. We had a nice time.

Hidden in the rustic wilds of central New Jersey, within the quaint confines of historic Long Vallley, a neat little Colonial village that saw some action during a little dustup called the Revolutionary War (By George), Long Valley Brewpub is a small batch brewpub that provides award winning crafts to thirsty patrons beneath the sturdy rafters of an atmospheric stone structure that dates from 1771.
There is a roomy patio area, great for those warm spring days when the cool winds licks the back of your neck as you sip on a pint of their savory Lazy Jake Porter. Enter the double doors and you are faced with the small bar area, which is opposite the smiling brewing tanks ensconed behind a steaming glass window. To the right is a larger dining area where slobbering patrons stuff theri maws with vittles; on the left, a smaller room decorated with an inviting fireplace that must be magnificent during the hostile New Jersey winters. Upstairs, beneath the aforementioned rafters is another area in which the aforemetioned patrons can also slobber.
Looking at the row of taps, one detects an affinity for German beers - this neighborhood was once know as Germantown. (Hessians, anyone?)
The food is fresh and filling and the bartender was a friendly college student wonderfully endowed with breasts and a friendly smile.
Long Valley may be out of the way, but it is certainly a trip worth making. History and beer: perfect together. (Apologies to former Governor Tom Kean.)
