Tremendous selection of craft beer with a rotation that always satisfies beer lovers. This place definitely supports their local breweries last time I was there they had two beers on tap that I've ever heard of,Sterling and Broken Goblet. The bartender offered a taste of both to compare to other beers in the same class. Definitely a staff of well-trained folks that are passionate about great beer and great food combined with personalities that make you want to come back. The layout of the restaurant is very cool with a wood burning fireplace that was very much appreciated on a freezing cold day. This is definitely a place to check out.

The freshly opened Goat Hollow is a charming restaurant & bar in Mount Airy. It's located at 300 Mt. Pleasant Avenue, just a few blocks north of the Malt House homebrew shop.

As you enter, the bar is on your right, and a cast iron fireplace is just before you, almost in the center of the room. The bar is fairly large, and it's not just a spot for patrons to wait for their table, it's a full on "bar". It wouldn't seem weird at all to visit just to have a few beers. The dining area wraps around on your left to behind the fireplace, and it's divided into three sections forming separate 'rooms'. There's a lot of wood, most of it reclaimed, and with its grey-ish walls most people would call the decor "modern lodge" or "industrial/rustic". It's quite nice, and the dining areas are comfortable.

There are 22 beers on tap, 2 of which are cask-conditioned and drawn via beer engine. The list is impressive, without any standard American or imported beers; and displaying a good balance between local and national micros, and well-chosen imports.

The menu is nicely varied as well, offering starters, soups and salads, mussels, sandwiches, burgers and entrees. Some examples include an appetizer of pickled pork belly dumplings for $9, French onion soup for $6, a duck salad at $15, an oyster muffaletta for $9, and a cold-smoked cowboy ribeye, the highest priced item on the menu,at $24. Many of the starters are also available as an entree, such as the grilled diver scallops for $11 or $16; and the mussels are available in 5 varieties in either a 1 or 2 pound portion for $10 or $19. The burgers work the same way with 5 variations ($8 to $12), and are available as ground beef, grilled chicken, or vegetable burger.

All of the food that I've tasted has been quite good, and I thought at very reasonable prices. A party of three sharing and appetizer and a dessert, with one drink and a sandwich or burger should expect to pay around $25 each (not including tip).

The service is quite good as well, and I was surprised at how well everything ran given the short period they've been open. Overall, I would highly recommend a visit!
