Large open room which is nice for larger events. Has an event hall next door with limited selection compared to the main side. Always busy, so more servers would be nice. The Tap Tenders do their best to keep up. Lately they have been serving beer in plastic cups, which is a bit of a turn off. Very community minded business which is nice to have!

I haven't tried the BBQ from the attached restaurant so that will have to be factored in later. I've heard good things about it though. As for what I have actually experienced- that would include the former tiny brewery location and this current reformed bowling alley since it was opened and expanded. The beers have gotten better with time and it's impressive to see the growth rate of the brewery itself. The bar top is recycled from the very bowling lane that the owner used to reserve with his family, thus carrying on the personal history of the location. As for the service, it's hit or miss. Sometimes I've felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome and other times, it's been a very enjoyable experience. My rating reflects the my perceived average between the two.

Nice variety, wide range of options. Thought the Tribute was by far the best tasting beer. The Maple Stout didn't have nearly as much flavor as I was expecting. Overall great place to try and close home

Maple Breakfast Stout is the best local stout you can get and is worth the visit. Otherwise, the place could use a more comfortable feel.

At the end of a strip mall on the main drag of St-Albans. The bar part is large and semed listless a bit but huge windows overlooking the brewing equipment and a nice tap list make up for the lack of ambiance.
