Feels like a chain restaurant inside, but their beers on tap are very broad in style offerings and also the 3 I’ve tried to date have all been quite solid. Underrated brewer IMO.

Large place - an old big brick warehouse type building. First floor is dining and bar area, high ceilings, industrial vibe, wood finishes. upstairs is the "Abbey Bar" which has a stage and live music events, with good size bar in the back and some seating throughout. Taplist has at least a dozen beers - pretty standard array of styles. beer is solid but unspectacular. they are an old school brewpub catering to the casual beer fans, not beer geeks. food is decent for bar food.

Visited on a slow Sunday afternoon. The bartender was friendly and helpful.

4 oz samples cost $1.75 which is a little pricey but additional samples provided were generous so I guess that evens things out?

Crowlers, growlers, and bottles available to-go.

Love a place that is laid back and relaxing. This is it. Nice decor and scenery outside. For me it's worth the 100 mile round trip. After all, it is all about the beer. The food is exceptional and very different. My beer to take home is called "Outta Focus".

ABC is great. Their beer selection is vast and the quality is right where you want it to be, but their food can't be praised enough. The menu is unique and full of fun things to try and it delivers once you've got it. I've had the rockfish tacos and I've tried the french dip (which is braised in their Jolly Scot Ale) and they were both wonderful. Good place to go, can't wait to go back.
