Did not try the food, the beer was very good, selection is limited to only the beer they make, everything I tasted was good or better. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. No it is not ultimately on the level of Monks, but it is very cool, better than average beer and the atmosphere is as cool as it gets, all they are missing are a couple of guys on the roof with guns trying to keep patrons out ;>) One of the most memorable places I have visited.

The wife and I drove to State Line in Elkton MD and then decided to take the longer route back to Philadelphia. Looking for a brewery/brewpub, I found Kennett... only 30+ minutes from State Line, let's go!

This is a new brewpub in the heart of Kennett Square, kind of tucked away and hidden despite being in the middle of everything. We visited on a Friday night and it was bustling. Pretty packed and noisy.

The whole place looks so professional- from their logo and branding to the bar design and the taproom overall. They're aiming big.

The food was so delicious! Best jalapeno poppers, with real peppers and neither breaded nor deep-fried. Lobster-brie dip to die for and an excellent shrimp taco, so fresh. A bit expensive, but worth for the high quality.

Beer is $5.50 a pop but the higher-ABV ones are $8 (what!?). Unfortunately most of the brews were underwhelming. They really ought to try harder and brew better. I got a sample of four beers and the only one I liked was the Head Skull Mind Beer DIPA my wife ordered.

I'll give them another chance, though. The place is cool, the owners are nice and the food is extraordinary.

Just a month since opening. Walk down from street speakeasy style. Made good use of the area. Beer is very good with eight beer of a good portfolio of ales and one lager. Great brew pub food, sandwiches, pizza, appetizers. It wasn't crowded, service very good. Community style seating on various sized tables.

Found this from a recommendation from a bartender at Victory about a mile down the road. Brewery entrance is a little tough to find as it is back off a side street leading to the post office parking lot and parking seemed to be limited to permit only in the lot nearby. I got there before 4 pm when it was rather quiet and had time to talk to bartender and the brewmaster while there. It filled up by 6:30 pm when I left. Beers and food are above average. Place has a good start for being open less than a month. A good place to stop if in the Kennett Square area.

I went here maybe a week after they opened. It was a Friday afternoon, but I was still a bit shocked to see how busy the place was. Business...good for them!

A little difficult to see from the street, but easier when you're out and walking around, the brewpub is set back and down in the lower level of the building. Simple layout, like someone rebuilt a basement into a cool bar. The bar itself is a good size, seating about 20 people, and there are quite a few tables to sit at as well. There were 8 KBC beers on tap, not the hugest variety (3 APAs, 2 IPAs, an IPL, ABA, Scotch ale), but definitely a good start. Everything was pretty solid. My favorites out of the bunch were the IPL and the Shrunken Head.

Service was good. I really liked the girl who was tending the bar--didn't catch her name, but she was good, and the entire staff seemed to be keeping up with the larger crowd with no problem. The food was very good as well. Not a huge menu, but some very good things on there. I went with the short rib sandwich, which was excellent.

I think KBC is worth keeping an eye on. I very rarely find myself in the Kennett area, and I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but I'd revisit if I find myself in town again.
