For Ocean County it's fantastic. Overall it's little, friendly and approachable with a decent selection of Irish inspired brews.

After many visits going back to opening weekend, it's time for the review.

A Bar-like tasting room offers a great vibe. It's cozy, and can get crowded, but there's room to spill out near the brewing area. The patrons are, happily, adults of all ages.

It's a first rate operation, all new equipment. I've been served beer in a warm (freshly washed) glass on occasion when busy. The staff is helpful and they move.

I'd like to see the selection expand. The Irish/English style brews are limited, but they show off a gem now and then (like Porta Café). There were at least 5 brews on tap during any of my visits.

I enjoy stopping in.

Vibe: The tasting room initially appears like a small bar, but is actually part of the brewery and has windows overlooking the actual brewery. A door leads to the brewery itself and stand up tables are provided in the middle of the brewery, presumably for times when the tasting room gets too crowded.
Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using pint glasses.
Service: The bartender seemed friendly and I didn't have long to wait for beers, but they did say it gets crowded at times and used a token system to speed up service.
Selection: A total of six beers were available on-tap when I visited, including both versions of their Pota beer.
Food: They didn't serve food, but bowls of popcorn and pretzels were provided as munchies on each of the tables in the tasting room.

This place is only a tasting room, set up with a small bar and a few high top tables. There are plenty of windows looking into the brewery area, and there were also a few seats in an open area amongst the equipment. Minimal decorations are in the room, and no TVs. It is setup to only enjoy some beers which is a good thing.

On this visit there were 5 beers on tap, and English Blond and a Brown, Irish Red and a Dry Irish Coffee Stout, and a Smoked Scottish 70. Beers are purchased with tokens which must be purchased to exchange for the beers. The Irish Coffee Stout was phenominal, and the Smoked Scottish 70 was very good. The Irish Red was good but my least favorite of the three I had. The beers were all of superior quality.

Service was prompt and friendly and the prices were very good at $4.50 a token = pint. I will look forward to enjoying the beers at some local restaurants and bars.

Second weekend this place is open!

Atmosphere: The tasting room is going for a Irish pub motif, very clean and friendly. They give regular tours of a very well built brewing facility. The brewing facility is clean and industrial, but again, inviting.

Quality: All of the beer is high quality

Service: Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, service is quick and easy.

Selection: Good, they have four taps with four different brews. They offer growlers and pint glasses, and I believe they also offer clothing as well

Value: Reasonably priced. Growlers are $15 filled, $10 for a refill.

Overall: Great. Had a great talk and tour with one of the owners, very enjoyable experience. They specialize in Irish and UK style beers. I don't have a ton of basis on those styles, but they seem to be well done and very enjoyable. They seem to be doing everything right, so I expect to see them do well and wouldn't be surprised if they end up being considered on the same level as Kane.
