Stopped in for a pint on a weekday afternoon.

Atm: Pretty nice looking brewpub. A really LONG bar with some flat screen tv's behind them to watch games. I like the setup a lot.

Quality: Fairly well crafted beers, and the establishment overall looks to be pretty nice. Most of Moylan's beers have never really excited me but they have a couple I would go back for.

Service: It was a lazy time of day when we were there, the service was ok.

Selection: They had around 10-12 beers on tap I believe, some interesting, some not. Hopsickle is there of course, and they try to hit a broad range of styles which is nice if you like to change it up a lot.

Food: Ddidn't try it but looked like they had a pretty busy restaurant area that I wouldn't mind trying out some day.

Nothing special here. Decent beer selection but space is really tired looking. Nice large bar area is a good spot to pop into for a beer if you're stuck on the 101 or 37 parking lots. Food is OK.

The staff were knowledgeable of the beer, of which they had a large range to choose from. The beer range is also well worth it too.

The food selection was good, ambience fine. I enjoyed myself there, along with the sample platter. What I didn't expect was my sister's fiancé from Italy regarding the meal and beer there tops as far as eating out during his trip.
