I had wanted to try some of their BA beers for a while so I took the drive down the other day. The town of Delmar does not look like it had much to offer. The outside of the brewery is non-descript, the building used to house a small grocery store. Inside is a small bar, and in the corner were a handfull of barrels that they use for their fall migration. I ordered a flight which included most of their normal lineup + a seasonal. I was surprised how many patrons they had for a Thursday afternoon. The bartender was pleasant and the flight was reasonably priced. I was very excited because they were selling gift packs of menagerie #3 and their winter migration(first day they offered it, did not even list they had it for sale on their face book page). They are moving to a new location in the spring, which will be a much bigger space. If you are in the area the current location is worth stopping by.

Most of the people seem to go to the Public House side to either eat, or sit at the bar. Therefore, the taproom area was not very crowded (only went one time, so not sure if this is typical). All of the year-rounds + seasonals + a couple limited releases. Most beers can be found elsewhere in the state, but there were a few that were very limited. Delicious beer

It has a comfortable vibe, it's not too big or too small. Large windows are nice and let in lots of natural light, though this can be an issue when the sun is shining directly into your eyes, blinding you from looking at your beers. The quality was also good, beer and food-wise. No complaints about service or selection. Pretty solid across the board, though a bit pricey. Not sure why it's not giving me an option to rate food, but their crab dip is some of the best I've ever had.

Beautiful location with great outdoor and indoor space. Service was poor. The waitress did not know what was offered on tap and advised differently from what the bartender had. A bottle release was offered by the brewery but the waitress did no know if the bottle was still available. Was asked to check and forgot and had to be reminded. Have to note that the waitress was working the deck area but nonetheless should have know this info. Would not go back due to the poor service and ok beer.

The best brewery/gastric pub in the state. Incredibly unique menu. Fantastic beer selection. Very knowledgable staff. Restaurant, brewery and tasting room all in one place.
