I have tried this place a few times, and I leave every time with the distinct feeling that this is a brewery first, restaurant second. The atmosphere is average, and not very welcoming. I can't blame them for using the spacec as they did, they squeezed it into the corner, but designed the space quite oddly. The quality is of course good, butI have never had good service there. 6 bartenders, and 6 walk right past you, have been unattentive and uninterested, seemingly. Of course the selection they have on and rotating and great. Can't beat Sorm King on tap.

The place that started my craft beer obsession. Always a solid option for dinner and drinks. Food can be hit or miss sometimes especially for my wife but I usually enjoy what i get. The jerk grinder is my go to food option. Staff is friendly and fast. It does get packed and noisy on the weekends but I still love the atmosphere of the building.

Since I grew up just a half an hour from the brewery, I've visited this quaint little facility and have always had great food, great service and an overall enjoyable experience. As far as I know they only keep their beers on tap. And its always well kept as far as cleanliness. When in Downingtown, check it out.

Destination visit in Downington PA. Large bar area with tables in a hallway off to the side. I was there for lunch, so the din was low and attendance was building. Probably 15-20 beers on tap to choose from, with unstructured samplers competitively priced. Growler fills as well. Broad menu, pretty much what you'd expect with good variety. Nicely made sandwiches which feature the various beers in dipping sauces. The server was quite conversant on the beers and was interested in the tasting I was doing. Finish with a visit to the bottle shop and merch.
