vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.5

A large area - long bar on the left, with tables to the right. Clean. Something of a "chain" feel, though it is not (not quite sure what gave me that impression, but I got it). Still, the large bar area very comfortable, with the fermenters letting you know it's a brewpub.

The selection was of 5 regular offerings, a seasonal and a cask. There's a profile of each listed by each indicating maltiness. They were all "high" except the "light lager". I guess this brewer like malty beers. Would be a better selection if there were at least some diversity in the malt scales, though having a cask is a plus, and seven beers not a bad number to have.

The four beers I had were mediocre/decent - nothing particularly special. All leaning malty (as indicated) - even the APA, and all a bit thin.

Service was friendly enough, I suppose, though the bartender didn't seem very knowlegeable (about beer in general or the fact that it's associated with Mountaineer), or very attentive, though it was not busy. Service wasn't "slow", though, so I guess I can't complain much. Didn't try the food.

If I were in the area, I might stop by once in a while, but wouldn't be a regular. If thin, maltier beers are your thing (and I have nothing at all against malty - I can certainly appreciate that - but would like more diversity), then maybe you'll like it more than I did. Not too bad - not noteworthy beer-wise. Not worth going out of the way for, IMO.
