I visited this pub on a trip from CT to PA. I have driven past on I-80 numerous times and figured this was a good time to stop. The pub is easy to find with good signage even on the highway. Pulling up there is ample parking in a read lot behind the brewpub. they have a back deck with several flaming tiki torches blazing. There are maybe 15 or so tables on the deck. Walking inside the bar is just through the front door. The bar is pentagon shaped with about 25 stools for patrons. There are at least 25 table and chair comobs for dining. I sat at the bar. Fermenting tanks behind glass, just to the side of the bar. They have a mug club as evidenced by the hundreds of glass mugs hanging from the ceiling. There are 9 house beers plus a beer engine with was their IPA at the time I visited. The beers ranged from a light brew, black lager, IPA, strong ale and barleywine. They were out of their stout at the time. I think I saw a guest tap for widmer bros hefeweizen. They also have bottles of several macros available and I unfortunately saw many patrons opting for that choice instead. The atmosphere is similar to a ski lodge with high ceilings and exposed beams etc. There is a game room but I didnt check it out at all. Seems like this is a local watering hole as many folks were greeted by others as they entered the bar. A womens softball team came in towards the end of my visit. The service was good, but it definitely helped if you were a regular as the service was better for the folks down a few stools from me. Not a big deal though as my service was fine. Food is typical pub grub, with various sandwiches, salads, pasta dishes and stuff.
I had a chicken sandwich and sweet potato fries and was a little disappointed in the size of a side of fries. The sandwich was good not great and the meat was a little dry. My sample of the strong ale was a little tart and Im not sure if was supposed to be there or not (see my review).
They do growlers, but not of the bigger beers and they bottle 12 ozers of their mainline brews and you can take them to go, by 6ers or cases. Of course you can also score corona et al in 6ers. Ugh.
Overall this pub makes for a decent dinner stop, but not worth a trip just for the brewpub.

Stopped in for a burger and a brew on a summer afternoon....this place is easy to find and just a few mins from the highway

Nice room and atmosphere, comfortable bar and friendly enough service.

I was not overly impressive by the pale ale, for what that is worth....food seemed on the standard side, again nothing really special or overly interesting. Decent place to enjoy a pint and I imagine they do a nice bit of business during ski season

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.

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.

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.
