I have gone here a few times over the years. I usually go to the Pumpstation as it is closer. They always have a ton of beer on tap. They do a sampler for $6 which is not a good deal at all as the sample sizes are TINY. Better off just getting a pint or two. The pints are reasonably priced with a beer of the day for $3/pint instead of the usual $4. Growlers can be filled up as well. The imperial stout cost me $10 for a refill. They let you fill up other people's growlers which is important.
The food was good and the fries were beer battered to hell and were awesome. The deck is nice during the summer for sure. Definitely worth a stop.

Stopped here for a repeat visit. On our first visit (a Friday night) it was jam packed. We only sampled appetizers and drank at the outside bar. The apps that we had were good. This time we made a lunch trip while visiting RPI. The ambiance is good: I love using these old brick buildings for things like brewpubs. I never get tired of being in a place like this. Service was excellent. We had sandwiches for lunch. My wife had the French Dip, which she said it was one of the best she ever had. My Hickory Chicken was top notch. The beers are pretty good too. Worth a stop!
