this brewpub is located in a very pretty building right on the main drag of historic fredericksburg. the restaurant had many different sections to sit in, some seemed way too crowded (the rear dining room in particular). we sat by the brewhouse in the bar section which was significantly more empty. service was attentive but not overbearing. there was about 10 beers on tap and a cask line as well as bud, corona, and miller light bottles (which, for the record, i dislike when brewpubs offer these). the beers i sampled were good with diverse styles on tap such as hefe, mild, nut brown, EIPA, and a scottish. the food was good brewpub food. had a good pulled pork sandwich and especially enjoyed the shoe-string frenchfries. definitely worth a visit if strolling around fredericksburg.

Nice selection of beers, good value for those who like to try a lot with a 6-beer (5 oz pours) sampler for $8. The favorite of both my wife and myself was the 1634 rye beer but all of them were good.

There was about a 30-minute wait for a table on a Saturday night but once we got in the service was helpful and fast. The kitchen did make a mistake in sending out French onion soup instead of French fries (my wife had asked about the soup, but decided to get fries instead) but that was more than satisfactorily resolved - they sent a side of fries and didn't charge for the soup. :)
