Set in a cute cobblestone cottage overlooking lovely Lake Mohawk, you kind of get the sense that you're in for a laid-back experience before you enter, and it doesn't disappoint. While you do get your share of dopey patrons who disrespectfully shun the above average home brew offerings in favor of Coors Light, at least they are all friendly and welcoming. It must be due to the fact that since this place isn't easy to get to, it relies heavily on the local dollar. The servers are fairly knowledgeable about beer, are eager to give you a free taste if you have a tough time making a decision, and are good conversationalists. The food, while unspectacular, is still very good and evokes the feeling that mom is cooking the meal behind those closed kitchen doors. Of the year-round beer offerings, the only standout is the Oatmeal Stout (A-), but their seasonals...e.g. Augie's Alt (A+), Maibock (A-), Gruny's Belgian Dubbel (B+), etc...are usually fantastic, which begs the question as to why some of them aren't added to the permanent roster.

Situated along the shore of Lake Mohawk – actually, a dam, Krogh’s is a small batch brewpub packed with history and house beers. The building, which began as a tea shop in 1927, is a picturesque relic of the past and somewhat reminiscent of a rustic lodge somewhere Bavaria – or maybe even along a dam in New Jersey.
The interior is intimate and homey, with dark wood paneling, heavy rafters and walls made of chinked logs; strewn about is an arbitrary array of tables with sturdy booths clinging along the windows. Once inside, head towards the rear, where you find a P-shaped bar, a well worn one that has supported several generations of tourist elbows.
At the bar, there is a selection of four year-round house beers along with the usual seasonal suspects. The beers were decent, though nothing to crow about. (Sorry) The menu is loaded with hearty fare that includes huge slobbering burgers and features one massive plate of nachos, the “Nacho El Grande,” which is Spanish for the “Big Nacho.” Ay carumba!
All in all, Krogh's is an interesting venue that is worth checking out - if in the area.
