vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4

Came in for dinner 01-02-08

Atmosphere- Bar & Restaurant area were both pretty crowded, pretty mixed crowd from college kids to families with kids.
Service- Food and drinks came out quickly, staff was friendly
Selection- Pretty good selection, something for every taste and a lot of seasonal offerings along with a cask line. Everything from Oatmeal Stout, DIPA, ESB cask, Winter Ale, IPA, Weizen, Brown, Kolsch
Food- All the food was very good, no complaints here, esp. for a brewpub
Valve- Dinner was around $60 for apps./entree/beer for two. The flight 6 beers (8oz pours) was only $7!

Overall worth checking out if your in the area a lot of seasonal/limited beers is always nice to see to try something different.

I stopped in today with my wife and son after hiking Sugarloaf Mountain nearby. We got the last open table on the modest patio and had a very pleasant late lunch. We shared the pickle chips which were skimpy but very tasty and I had a kolsch which was excellent in the afternoon sunshine. Nice atmosphere as well as notably fast and friendly service. My sausage gumbo was delicious and my wife couldn't shut up about her turkey burger. I would totally come back here any time.

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. :)
