This place ended up being a little bit longer of a ride from north NJ than expected, but once in PA, it is about 10 miles across the border. The turn is right off the highway. Close to the huge outlet center.

A very cool place. Reminds me a lot of the Gilder Otter in New Paltz...with a ski lodge type theme to it. A large bar with plenty of seating. It was cold and raining, but there is also an enclosed outdoor deck...yet, people were actually out there.
And, although we didn't stop over, in the back of their property, up a small hill there is an another area with an outside bar, giant sized chess and other games. Sounds very cool. Can't comment, since we didn't go up there.

The food menu is pretty nice. Standard selections, for the most part. The food is actually not that cheap. Entrees are in the $18-20 range. Burgers are like $8, sandwiches like $10....fries at an extra cost.

Most importantly, though, the beer. Beers only ran $3.50 a pint...very good deal. They have a $7.95 sampler. Their standard beers are a black, a golden, an IPA and brown. Brown probably being the tastiest, but there was nothing bad. Their sampler also included the Creek Lite and an Octoberfest.
Each was good...the Octoberfest was a bit lite tasting, but each was fresh and crisp.

There was also a cream ale and a barleywine on tap, but not part of the sampler. They advertise a strong ale and a stout, but neither was available at that time.

We went up to the bar, listening to the live music...big screen TV had the Ohio St game on...it was a really nice time. Nice people.

Before you go, they also have a area where you can buy pint/shot glasses, a variety of t shirts and their beers. You can make your own 6 pack as well.

Can't wait to get back...

About 12 home brewed and 10 more on tap. Some other local and big name craft. Food was amazing. Nice family restaurant. Great service. The beer brought down the review.

Packed on a Saturday night. Service was in line with that - could have used a few more visits from the server, and the wait for food led some things to be cold. We aren't all that picky so it didn't matter. The vibe is good, lots of activity and smiling people. Great burgers, nachos and fries. Good deal on flights - $8.50 for 4 four ounce pours. Their beers are ok. They have variety, no stand outs though. The guest tap list is good and the flight pricing applies to those beers also.

Tried to load a picture of the tap list but it wouldn't show as a picture.

Don't waste your time here. Service and the beer both suck.

Stopped in for a burger and a brew on a summer afternoon....this place is easy to find and just a few mins from the highway

Nice room and atmosphere, comfortable bar and friendly enough service.

I was not overly impressive by the pale ale, for what that is worth....food seemed on the standard side, again nothing really special or overly interesting. Decent place to enjoy a pint and I imagine they do a nice bit of business during ski season

I'll say one thing, awesome vibe. Besides that, the beer is sour. I'm not sure if taps aren't cleaned or if it's the yeast they use but only one beer really stood out. That was their Belgian wheat. The rest, drain pours.

Stopped in after a day at camelback. Overall not a bad place, food was pretty good and beer was decent. I tried a few of their beers but the only one that really stood out to me was the imperial stout. Anyway, great place to stop by after a day of skiing/ riding.
