SMOKE-FREE FACILITY

A - like many NE breweries with a pub on site, a big old factory building in downtown lancaster, very nicely appointed with copper-top tables, and the typical (not an insult) big wood beams and lofted areas above the brew kettles. Visited on a saturday early bird dinner...not too busy at that point of the day, and was full of families and 30 somethings (us). Good place to be on a cold january evening.

Q - the beers, while limited (they ran out of pilsner before I could try it) were much better than I expected, having only had the hop hog and milk stout from the bottle in the Philly area. Exceptionally better was the milk stout. After the Pilsner ran out, they only had 6 on tap, but one was a very good winter warmer.

S - Our server was attentive and accommodating, visiting the table appropriately frequently from beginning to end.

F - I had a lamb burger after sharing the mussells appetizer with the wife. The lamb was a bit underdone vs. my order, but still, VEY tasty. Our table of five each got something different, and all was good. not a morsel left over...

V - pricing was appropriate, it's by no means fine dining, but some of their secials and entrees were on the higher end, but beer prices and sandwiches were right on. I'd love to go back here again. It was actually better than I expected. If I had the wallett or hunger that day, I would have gotten the Kobe steak... I'll make it a point ot do so next time.

Great food and vibe, but the clientele left much to be desired. I had the meatloaf on mashed potatoes with the milk stout gravy and carrots, and it was excellent. The beer was also great.

Stopped here just because I was nearby. The service was very good and the selection was decent too. I had a sampler flight while I was there just looking to try some beers I hadn't seen before. I wouldn't mind stopping back in if I were in the area.
