4.38/5  rDev +11.2%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 5

Atmosphere: The atmosphere fits well with Princeton. It feels like a cool place to be. A little dark in there, but you can still clearly see your beer to accurately review the color. A little cramped due to it being narrow. Feels like a good place to get beer.

Quality: Outstanding. High quality food, high quality beer, high quality service, what more could you ask for?

Service: Very good, the server comes around often enough, but isn't asking if you need something every 5 seconds.

Selection: Good with what I expect from a brew pub. They have 7 beers available, which should be enough to please anybody. There are 2 to 3 beers that are always there, the Honey Blonde, the Amber Ale, and usually the Bengal Gold IPA (this may get rotated with other IPAs). They have 2 more rotating regular taps with some good stuff out of the ordinary. There is one rotating Nitro-tap with some kind of stout, which the Irish stout is seen most often. The seventh beer is a rotating cask on hand pump which is usually the most unusual. So everybody should be happy with the beer, and if you really can't decide, you can get a sampler. Food selection is good too, a decent sized menu, but not too extensive.

Food: Excellent high quality gourmet food. The Triumph Burger is the best burger I've ever had. If you're looking for regular entrees, there is a decent selection that isn't over involved. Plenty of sandwich/wrap selections, salads, soups, appetizers, and desserts. It is all high quality and delicious.

Value: Not cheap, but still reasonable prices. Sandwiches are about $9-15 and entrees are about $15-30. Appetizers are pretty much less than $10. Beer I'm pretty sure is all $5.50 regardless of what you order (size varies though, all served in proper glasses). Growlers used to be $15 for a new one filled, and $12 for refills, but that has gone up to $17 and $13. Not that big of a deal, and still a reasonable price. They now offer some 750ml bottles, but I didn't get one to go because of the price (don't remember, but it was between $10 and $20).

Overall I love this place, and I haven't gotten to go here as often as I used to. I would highly recommend it if you are in the Princeton area.

8/14...worthy stop right across the street from Princeton. Split level open space. Large selection of brews on tap, with an eight beer sampler availability. Everything well poured and the staff aptly described the characteristics. Was impressed with the quality of the brews. Good food menu, aiming for slightly upscale and certainly creative.

The 7 beer sampler for $13 is a bargain. Decided the hand pump ESB was best offering.

You'd hope for more from such a cool looking place. A bit disappointed for sure.

The menu looked good but the actual food didn't live up to the hype. The beer wasn't much better.
