Stopped by on the way home from the Delaware beaches. A simple stop right off the highway. Tucked in a strip mall. A pretty big place once you get inside. Service was really good, extremely friendly waitress. Typical pub menu. My slider trio was really good.
Nice beer selection...standards included an oatmeal stout, irish red, ipa, golden and wheat. On their rotating line was a hopped up amber, smoked porter, coffee stout, wit and their kolsch...everything was good but the kolsch and oatmeal stout really stood out. They offer 2 sized samplers. Standard swag for sale if interested.
Cool place. We had our baby with us and felt totally comfortable. Thanks for a pleasant visit...will be back next year.

Located in a strip mall; interior has not much to see. A pretty family-friendly atmosphere with lots of seating. Sports bar kind of place with a local feel. Had two beer lists really: 6-8 standards and 6-8 specials, with one of those being a guest draft. Didn't try to many, but the beer wasn't bad. Food menu looked solid, but we just got appetizers. They were good. Was there for a group thing and the place was right for that.

Holy guacamole can this place make a good hefeweisen! I tend to loathe many American hefeweisens and certainly didn't expect such deliciousness from a brewpub in a far flung suburban shopping center. Our bartender was helpful and attentive and enthusiastic and really made the visit great for first-timers.

All the beers we tried (2 flights plus 2 pints) were solid and our meals were excellent, at very fair prices. I got a peculiarly-shaped crabcake sandwich that I initially turned my Baltimore nose up at but it turned out to be so good that I kept wanting another one for weeks afterward.

A surprising and yummy place.

Knowledgeable staff. Sean was great with insights and recommendations. Generally a fairly spacious brew pub with multi-TV/sports channels going on. Games. Glass walls displaying brew tanks, etc.Has a feel of brew pub, british pub, sports bar and strip mall.
Beer was typically very good with a few awesome beers. Many seasonals to enjoy.
Everyone was ordering/eating food ( eat in and take out). I didn't this trip, but felt sure I would have been more than happy.
Overall atmosphere was upbeat, friendly and definitely full of regular happy patrons.
Enjoyed my stay, beer was way above average with standouts. Considering how many GABF and WBC medals these guys have won...they definitely showed it in what I had. Nice thing is that they had something for practically anyone. Something for everyone. Will definitely go back.
