This founding location of the growing brewpub chain is exactly what you would expect from a quality brewpub...a nice, comfortable, low-key building with a good, laidback, beer-drinking crowd. The only detracting factor is the high concentration of college kids from nearby Princeton University. The overall quality of the beer is good, with standouts in the form of the Bengali IPA (A), the Oatmeal Stout (A-), and the Amber Ale (A-). Furthermore, the brewers try to rotate in new beers every so often, making the selection a constantly-evolving project. Every meal that I have had at not only this location, but at the other locations, has been done extremely well, and the service has always been both knowledgeable and friendly. Good bang for the buck.

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.
