This place ended up being a little bit longer of a ride from north NJ than expected, but once in PA, it is about 10 miles across the border. The turn is right off the highway. Close to the huge outlet center.

A very cool place. Reminds me a lot of the Gilder Otter in New Paltz...with a ski lodge type theme to it. A large bar with plenty of seating. It was cold and raining, but there is also an enclosed outdoor deck...yet, people were actually out there.
And, although we didn't stop over, in the back of their property, up a small hill there is an another area with an outside bar, giant sized chess and other games. Sounds very cool. Can't comment, since we didn't go up there.

The food menu is pretty nice. Standard selections, for the most part. The food is actually not that cheap. Entrees are in the $18-20 range. Burgers are like $8, sandwiches like $10....fries at an extra cost.

Most importantly, though, the beer. Beers only ran $3.50 a pint...very good deal. They have a $7.95 sampler. Their standard beers are a black, a golden, an IPA and brown. Brown probably being the tastiest, but there was nothing bad. Their sampler also included the Creek Lite and an Octoberfest.
Each was good...the Octoberfest was a bit lite tasting, but each was fresh and crisp.

There was also a cream ale and a barleywine on tap, but not part of the sampler. They advertise a strong ale and a stout, but neither was available at that time.

We went up to the bar, listening to the live music...big screen TV had the Ohio St game on...it was a really nice time. Nice people.

Before you go, they also have a area where you can buy pint/shot glasses, a variety of t shirts and their beers. You can make your own 6 pack as well.

Can't wait to get back... (1,767 characters)

I'll say one thing, awesome vibe. Besides that, the beer is sour. I'm not sure if taps aren't cleaned or if it's the yeast they use but only one beer really stood out. That was their Belgian wheat. The rest, drain pours. (220 characters)

Stopped in after a day at camelback. Overall not a bad place, food was pretty good and beer was decent. I tried a few of their beers but the only one that really stood out to me was the imperial stout. Anyway, great place to stop by after a day of skiing/ riding. (263 characters)

Overall above average microbrewery/brew pub. Food was pretty good pub faire, and the brews were above average but nothing really outstanding. There were not as many beers on tap as I would have expected for a place of this size, probably only 5 or 6 made there and your typical domestics. However, if I was shopping at the outlets I would definitely go here for food and drinks. (378 characters)
