I waited until I visited the new location a couple times before writing a review. My first visit was not that great, figured it was just newness/growing pains. But now that this location has been open for quite awhile, not much has changed.

Its a fresh and inviting looking place. It is clean and comfy feeling whether you belly up to the bar or sit at a table inside or out. They recently opened their upstairs to patrons who wish to play games so thats an added bonus if thats your thing.

Liquid selection will cover just about anyone's needs. They serve liquor, wine, hard cider in cans as well as 8-10 of their own beers. Each time I have visited the spread of beer is nice but in Springhouse fashion it is adjunct heavy for most offerings.

When it comes to the food, you are better off just avoiding it. It is overpriced for what you get and each time I figure ill give them another shot and something ends up being quite bad. Most recently, I paid $12 for a reuben and the only thing good about it was the fries and bread... the corned beef was so dried out it seemed like it was leftovers from St. Patricks day that they just reheated on the grill.

The building is a rehabbed warehouse, beautifully done. There's always an awesome selection of brews on tap, and the ever-changing menu is filled with creative and delicious fare. They have recently opened a 2nd floor arcade with a soaring view of the brewery. I cannot over emphasize the beauty of this building, and the plethora of creative ales, IPAs, and stouts they offer. Now I can even shoot pool or play skeeball while quaffing my favorite coffee stout.
Spring House Brewery is definitely my new 'Happy Place'!

Nice brewery space, now with full bar and restaurant capabilities. Good atmosphere, roomy and well-kept. Generally solid beer, with some unique options, and lots of different choices on tap, as well as bottles and cans to go. Service at the bar is iffy, and can often be downright bad. I haven't tried the food yet, but it seems like your basic pub grub.

I much prefer this location to the Taproom. Despite the service, it's more accessible, easier to park, more spacious...all around better choice for me, and I aim to go back soon for a longer visit.
