I stopped in on Wednesday, which was the first day of the Yankees-Phillies World Series. More than a few patrons were getting tuned in for the game. the crowd was very friendly and lively - unless you walked in with a Phillies jersey on.
I ordered a Lazy Jake Porter. They had 6 beers on tap, 2 seasonals (a pumpkin ale and Oktoberfest), the Lazy Jake, the Hookerman's Lite, and 2 I can't remember. I was really hoping to try the Coffee Stout, but it was not available.
I had the salad wedge - it was great, and the 1/2 roasted chicken, which was ok, but I wouldn't order it again or recommend it.
I would definitely stop by again. It looks like they put out some really good beers once in awhile. Service was ok, the barkeep seemed a bit annoyed at times, but it was a tough crowd.

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.)

Housed inside an old stone farmhouse, tons of exposed brick and wood beam work. Open feeling but warm and cozy at the same time. First floor has a decently sized bar in the center, flanked by dining areas on the left and right, the brewhouse exposed in the rear. Upstairs has another small bar and more seating. Big outdoor patio with bar and stage and ample seating. Only oddity is the placement of the many HD TVs in the interior.
4-5 House brews fairly light and straightforward. The porter the best of the bunch. Descriptions of other seasonals not currently available look promising. Food menu was expansive and covers burgers and sandwiches to steaks and such. Decently done, nothing spectacular. Service friendly and attentive.
Come for the atmosphere... everything else enough to keep you here a while.

One of the most spectacular settings and spaces for a brewpub. In the Schooley Mountain base in a restored 200 year old barn. Massive patio with gas heaters.
Two beers stood out for us the Lazy Jake Porter a slightly thin pour but a great blend of malted barley leads to a robust backbone and good body overall and the Marzen a lively hop and malt mix.
Food here is always topnotch. We love to hit this on the way home after a long day on the trail. The spicy ginger Calamari, and sesame ginger chicken wings are our favorite starters.
Cedar plank salmon, short rib gnocchi and homemade meatloaf are all amazing
Another pet peeve the clear glass screw top growlers.
