I have been to this place about 4 or 5 times since it's opened, and this is the first time that they've had all their beers available, so I'm finally writing a review.

Located in the extreme north end of town. Parking can be sparse with a Boston Pizza and Dairy Queen right next door. However, a grocery store is across the street one way, and a Wal-Mart the other way, so you wouldn't have to walk more than a block regardless. A warehouse style pub with windows displaying the brewery located above the bar in the middle of the room. Otherwise it's a fairly comfortably appointed place, but it does tend to be a bit loud even when it isn't busy. I think this is a result of the architecture.

The quality of their beer is average to below average at best. I know some people that rave about one beer or another of theirs, but I've never been really impressed by any of them. However, their wheat beer is perhaps the best I've had in this city and their Red Coat Ale isn't bad either.

I've always had decent service here, but this night the service was terrific! Our server was quick, friendly and somewhat knowledgable about what they had on tap and had something to offer about the style of beers. They also had a table menu that listed their beers (with a description of each) and the beers they have on tap and in bottles.

They have 8 other beers on tap besides their house brews, but no real craft brews. Most are from Labatts or Molsons, with one from Sleemans, and one from Big Rock. Their bottle selection is fairly small, but their imports aren't bad and they actually had a couple decent selections (including Hoegaarden)!

I've only had a few appetizers here, but they do have a full menu and specialize in pizza. The appetizers I've had are alright, but nothing special, but other people I've talked to say the food is good. I don't have enough experience to rate it one way or another though.

Basically, this is a pretty average brewpub here in Regina, but atleast it isn't part of one of the big chains. In fact, this is probably the second best non-chain brewpub in Regina. Still, there are enough other places available that I wouldn't make a special trip here, unless you live here or are spending alot of days in town.

Update June 4th, 2011. Was here last night to watch game 2 of the Stanley Cup. No one in our group liked any of the beers they brew themselves. All are below average to poor. Their quality has gone way down, but it's still a popular spot. About 10 or 15 tap handles, nothing craft though. The accoustics suck and even though it was only 3/4's full it was so loud that you had to almost yell across the table. I wouldn't go out of my way for this place. There are too many better spots in Regina.

I visited this place not long after it opened this year. The staff did not know if they were a full mash or extract system and I could not see the equipment, I have been told that they are extract.

The beer was on the sweet side with little evidence of hopping.

Nice layout and friendly staff. The pub is located on the north side of town across from superstore. The food was fine.

Saskatchewan liquor laws allow brew pubs to operate private liquor stores, this policy has encouraged the development of many brew pubs in the province.
