Stop #412 on my world brewery tour.

Traveling with a colleague from work so not much opportunity to really focus on the beer as much as I'd like. Also an unusual snowstorm was passing through that left ~4 inches of snow in a place with no snow removal equipment.

I had a flight and the were short one beer so I selected to double down on a hoppy pale ale. They had a farmhouse on the board which I was told they didn't have anymore. Style-wise the beers were all standard with nothing unusual. I recall an Irish ale that was pretty good. Wish they would have had the farrmhouse. The hoppy American pale was very nice and I could easy come back and put down a couple of pints.

Server was super super friendly but didn't know anything about beer.

Located in old downtown of Fayetteville, this brewpub has a great location and a great feel. A lot of wood and rustic architecture in the old refurbished tool store, giving the restaurant an old-school, mill-style atmosphere. Bar seating and restaurant seating separated by a partition, and the brewing equipment is viewable through windows in the back of the building. 6-8 beers on-tap at any time, depending on availability, with beer to go available in growlers. The staff is friendly and attentive, and there is a real laid back, family style atmosphere in here. The food is standard pub fare, but very solid.

Located in the downtown area in an old hardware store gives it a unique character. They have a good selection of beers to choose from. They have number of other brews on tap as well as their own. Service was good and personnel were friendly. I tried a number of their brews and the one I enjoyed best was the "Grand Cru". There is good quality pub grub to compliment the beers. I visited a few times while in the area on business and found the Monday night beer special is a great time to indulge & sample the brews.

Huske Hardware House Brewing Co is in a brick building in historic downtown Fayetteville that lends some unique character to the place. Service was always fast and courteous. They do have a good selection of house brews, plus seasonal brews. All of them are good, although not exceptional. The one thing that really stops me from being a regular there is the food quality. I've tried their wings, burgers, and fish 'n chips. All were pretty blah. The burger espcially was basically a sad patty sitting on dry bread with a barely melted cheese slice.

I just recently went to Huske Hardware House for my first time, The overall appearance of the place is very nice and has a modern loft feel and a really nice atmosphere.

When it came to the food, the quality was very poor, I ordered a burger and It was by far one of the worst burgers I have ever had, they use frozen burger patty's instead of ground beef. For a 10 dollar burger you would at least expect real ground beef and not a dry tasteless burger. I went with family and I have a younger sibling that got a grilled cheese and it was even terrible as I tried it my self after she could not even eat it. It says something about your food quality when you can not make a grilled cheese or a hamburger.

Lastly the beer was well below average. I am an IPA fan so I ordered their imperial IPA, It was a decent beer with a good balance of flavors but very weak on the hops and the aroma. My parents who are not adventurous beer drinkers ordered their standard blond ale. Expecting it to be an average blond was a very high expectation because the beer was terrible and finished very strong with a bite that was undesirable. The only beer I can compare their blond ale to is maybe a keystone ICE, that is how terrible it was.

Huske Hardware has recently changed brewmasters which is a shame because I really enjoyed the house beer made under the direction of Julie, the past brewer. I'm told by the staff that the recipes are the same but the new brewmaster is using a different combination of temps and boiling times that has changed the character of the beer fairly significantly and in my opinion, not for the better. I sampled the new brewmaster's first batch though, so in time it may be improved.

That said, I really enjoy this place through the week. Wednesdays are the best nights- live music and 2 dollar house pints. I avoid it on the weekend because it turns into a bad nightclub after 9. Atmosphere is way better through the week.

This is probably the best place in town to grab a beer.

Traveled down to Fayetteville with some friends to check out a couple of local brew pubs. Huske Hardware was our first stop, so we sampled their house beers and had some appetizers. The place has a very modern, urban loft kind of feel to it with the high ceilings, steel railings on the upper level, and huge glass walls surrounding the brewing kettles. All of the food we had was solid for bar food, and the server was friendly and attentive.

Regarding the beer, I was pleasantly surprised. I wan't expecting much since the server tried to describe each of their house beers according to what well-known macro they most closely resembled. Although none of the beers I tried was overly complex, they were all solid. I even liked the stout that the server named as his least favorite because "it doesn't taste like Guinness." I'll give him a pass on his beer knowledge, though, because it was a Saturday afternoon.

Overall, HHH was a good first stop on our brew pub tour. This one isn't going to be the hotbed of a new craft beer explosion in Fayetteville, but the drinkable, well-crafted house beers make this a solid place to grab a beer or two with a nice casual dinner.

first, any reviews prior to December 2008 should be disregarded...Huske has since reopened with completely new ownership and a fresh brewer

located in what was once a working hardware store that's survived a massive restructuring of the downtown environment, Huske has seen a couple closings over the years, and before it's current incarnation had devolved into nothing more than a nightclub that served horrendously infected ales, fortunately those times are gone and I've got a new joint to visit whenever I make it back home to Fayetteville

modern steel and wood decor accompanies the exposed brick and rafters that hint at the past of the spacious building, a large bar backs up to the holding tanks, and the actual brewing area is housed in a glass walled enclosure at the back of the establishment, a large covered side patio offers outdoor seating, the entire establishment is no-smoking, there's never too much of a crowd except on weekends, and occasionally there's a crappy/decent cover band playing

selection involves about 8 macros/macro-micros, 7 house beers to include one rotating seasonal, and a guest NC beer or two (there were two Triangle beers at my last visit, props for that), all house beers are served in 20 oz. pints for around $3, Wednesday is cask night and brewmaster Julie has done a good job of producing some pretty creative stuff for the firkin, house pints are $2 on Wednesdays, never any quality issues

while Huske gets the nod for beer when comparing the two local brewpubs, the food at the Mash House is much more on point...not to say that the stuff at Huske isn't decent, but they could really stand to pull it together a bit more, at current it's just passable and a bit amateurish

service has been hit or miss, with better service had at the bar than table, wait times can be excessive but we're generally recognized and served pretty rapidly
