This brewpub is located in the foothills of the Pocono mountains. It reminded me of a skim lodge type environment. The bar, horseshoe style, was filled with taps of the house beers. The rest of the pub was wide open. There were lots of tables. It think they rent it out for parties and weddings. They brewery was like most brewpubs; behind glass walls so that the patrons can see the process in person. The menu was pretty decent. There was the typical bar food with a touch of main dishes. I enjoyed the super nachos, which were way too much for me to handle. The service was great. Everyone was wearing the house t-shirts. It was almost like a fraternity the way they operated. There seemed to be a lot of locals interested. The beer was good. I had their Super Hop beer. I can't speak for all their brews, but this one was a decent IPA, true to the style. There is a small gift shop and beer to go. In my opinion, you've always got to have beer to go. This was a real pleasant stop; the first in a number for that particular day.

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.
