A couple good beers. (Little Cranky). No really good beers. Great outside ambiance right on the water.

Beautiful place located on the edge of a river. When I went, it was packed with people, mostly 20 somethings. I ordered a sample of beer, mostly Cranky variations and ended up leaving most of them on the table. The beer is very clean, however it is pretty pedestrian. Each one of the ones I tried only had a bitterness quality to them with little to no malt flavor, or distinguishable hop aroma. I would stop by again and try some of their other offerings, however their beer really fell flat based on what I tasted.

First time submitting a review always appreciate the well informed opinion:
Snow Hole from Stony Creek brewery without a doubt is the finest read Ale I have experienced for all the reasons that I've already been expressed… though there's a lot of taste from everyone of this brewery's bears they often leave a little bit too much of a resin or oily mouth feel for my predilection… though there are some tough critics here This is close to a five stars I could think but no one wants to give the five star-you always want to think there's something just a wee bit better

Love this place. Wish it was closer to home. Crowded but easy to get served.

This brewery has a "winery" feel to it. It's a gorgeous site.
