I stopped here this past Saturday with my BJCP Study group. We were having a post-exam lunch.

Nice place, tightly packed with a lunch crowd that emptied out rather quickly once we got our table.

The Beers .... nice typical brewpub selection. They were offering up a Maibock, one of my favorite styles, so I gravitated to it pretty damn quickly without even asking for a sample.

It was a good beer, but not really a Maibock. If it were given to me blind, I would've guessed a hoppy Pale Ale or perhaps an IPA. The color was right on, but the flavors were not to style. We even questioned if it was a Lager. Fortunatelly, it was a good tasting session beer and I'm a Hop-Head so I really didn't mind.

My second beer was the Gold. Again, good tasting session beer. I won't review it here.

For those of you that have read my brewpub reviews, you'll know what's next ... Yes, I ordered a Hamburger!

So here's an iteresting twist on a common fare... Welsch Rarebit sauce. It was a cheese sauce made with beer and was quite tastey on the burger, and also a little messy.

Another thing to note was that every burger listed was the same price ... I found this both to have great value and humourous as to the way they still bothered to itemize each burger out on the menu as if they'd have a different price.

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.

This place is a nice little local brewpub. Across the street form the lake shore and Mohawk Lake Country Club.
We flighted all the available beers. The Three sister wheat and the Alpine Glow Red were above average and an honorable mention to the oatmeal stout. However, the best things at this place are the food and the service.

The whole place is a little small so it easily gets crowded but the staff and service remained top notch. We had seafood stuffed mushroom appetizer and the Kroghs famous Nachos that come loaded they were plenty for four adults. Entrees were New york Strip sirloin steak, chicken marsala and baby back ribs.

Visited the Establishment on 11-23-10

My buddy and I ordered a sampler of beer which there were seven types. The names are: Old Krogh Oatmeal Stout, Log Cabin Nut Brown, Alpine Glow Red Ale, Brogden Meadow Pale Ale, Krogh's Gold, Krogh's Seasonal Abbey Ale and Three Sisters Golden Wheat. My favorite was the Oatmeal Stout and Alpine Glow Red Ale.

The service was incredible; I dropped my fork and magically another one was handed to me in seconds. The waitress and waiter were both incredibly nice. I did feel a little rushed but understandably so, it was extremely busy! Dinner time is nuts there! That means they must be doing something right.

It was impossible to get to the bar, it was so mobbed. A lady, I believe the manager, she told us that they have a Wing special on Tuesday and that's why the bar is mobbed.

The food was really good. I had grilled chicken with Meunster cheese and sauté mushrooms. It tasted fresh and the wait wasn't too long either to receive our food.

Since the Oatmeal Stout was so good I decided to get a pint of it. It tastes better than the first time. This is a must try stout if anyone comes here!

Overall, I'd recommend this place to anyone in New Jersey. I'm extremely impressed with the service, quality of food the beer is really good. They certainly know how to handle themselves during an extremely busy dinner hour. I would love to try this place when it's not as busy.

I love Krogh's. The beer and food are both phenomenal. It's tough to pick a favorite among their nut brown ale, red ale and oatmeal stout, and their seasonals are always worth a try. A while back I discovered their Cajun Burger, and I don't think I've eaten anything else there since. It is my favorite burger ever, and it is consistently excellent whenever I have it. The staff is friendly and patient. The restaurant itself is nice, clean, and homely. Nearly every surface inside Krogh's is wooden, which I do fancy. They have HD LCDs over the bar for whatever game is on. Prices are decent for the most part. They also fill growlers to go, which is great, although $17 is certainly not cheap.

There a just a few drawbacks. Parking is very limited, and you may have to park around the corner and down the hill (this sucks in winter, when it's below freezing). If a band is scheduled to play, arrive early, have your fill and leave before the headaches start. The bands which play are always loud and always lousy. Third, the bar can get very cramped and you may have to squeeze by the long part of the bar to get to the other side (which is annoying, but the far side of the bar is where it's at, if you know what I mean). Also the bathrooms are tiny. This may be an issue for some people.

Overall this is still a great place. The beer is great (better than Trap Rock and Long Valley Brewpubs, in my opinion) and the food and service are also top notch. If you somehow find yourself in Sparta, NJ (I should hope you know how you got here), definitely stop in.
