The bar space is huge with a front row view of the bottling lines. The bar is a 360 degree circular layout giving the bartender quick access to the taps and the customers equally. The beer is mostly average in execution as well the flavors and recipes lack complexity. Nothing sour or wild, no barrel aged beer, no Belgian saison or German beer styles except America style lagers. Lots of light drinking beer with a few ambers, IPA's and stouts. Tons of TV's flank the bar allowing for mindless zoning out on extreme sports and tennis. This brewery doesn't sell food but has free salty popcorn and lools like a place that all the local 'snow birds' like to day drink at. Tons of retired, transplants talking about their now aging kids and yesteryears passed to some stanger at the bar across the way as they sip light beers. Service was great but nothing special here to buy or bring home. Tons of 6 packs and cases of bottled beer to go in the cooler as well a crowler machine. No need to return or frequent this brewery. It was all very basic flavor profiles and nothing stood out to me. They do have ciders on draft if you have a gluten intolerance.

Well for a dive bar this isn't too bad. Not a very social place, but where is these days? Everyone hunched over fries and their phone. People don't exist anymore. Rise of the AI is upon us and no one cares.
The food is typical, the beer selection is slightly above average. No real reason to visit other than it's close to Music Blvd. and the Uptown Amphitheater.

Sprawling open beer bar with large L-shaped ar that seats about 30 and many communal table fill the remainder of the room. 22 nicely assorted not-widely-distributed beers on tap.(Unfortunately many were on premise consumption only.) Friendly bartender. Parking is limited.

Strip mall bottle shop with exception selection of local, regional, and national brands. ***Everything is available in singles!!*** They also had a great selection available on tap for growler fills. Shopkeeper was very knowledgeable and above and beyond helpful. Definitely will be stopping back whenever I'm in the neighborhood.

I have been to several private events at this new location. Their owners have connections to the local Air Force Base and they host many military-related functions. It is much larger and more open than the "Launchpad" is. There is a long bar, lots of tables in the main room, an outdoor patio and beer garden, and a small side room. There always seems to be a good crowd, but the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, not raucous.
3rd Planet does not serve food, but every time I've been there, there was a food truck outside; however, I do not know the actual schedule or availability of them. There are typically enough bartenders to keep up with demand, and I have found them to be friendly, approachable, and good ambassadors for craft beer. Usually there is an owner or spouse of an owner helping out, which is great to see.
There are typically 20-ish beers on tap, including several guest beers from as far away as Belgium. The 3rd Planet beers have disappointed me a few times, but I feel their quality and selection are steadily improving and are always at least competent. Over all, this is a relaxed, friendly spot to enjoy locally-made beers.

I visited this place for dinner based on the recommendation of hotel staff where I was staying. I was very glad they pointed me here!
Located as one of several bars & eateries in a a historic school building, this brewery and the complex had an amazing a nd unique vibe like nothing I've seen before. The school theme carried over into everything from menus to the tables and classroom decorations that were on the walls. The dining area was bright and open and separate from the brewing and aging areas, which I believe were on a floor below. The staff was friendly and enthusiastic about their beers. The food was good but not amazing. Prices were reasonable.
There were about 12-15 beers on tap the night I was there and almost all seemed to be limited releases or seasonals. I did not get a feel for what their "flagship" was, but I was impressed by the selections. I am a sucker for barrel-aged malty beers, and there were plenty to choose from. I built my own sampler and was happy to see that any beer on the menu was fair game, unlike at some breweries. For me the standout was the Barrel-Aged Old No. 23, but all the beers I had were above average quality and craftsmanship.
Overall, a dinner and beer in this old classroom made for a fun, unusual and slightly quirky experience that really left an impression. I highly recommend a visit.

Let's start with the setting. Old warehouse/ manufacturing facility, dormant for over a decade brought back to life. The charm of the existing building was kept in tact as much as possible. The beer, Brewmaster is second to none, is adventurous but also nail's the core beers. The Pizza, its hard to say its as good as the Beer, but its up there, one of the best in Cleveland no doubt. A lot of attention to detail on all sides of this business. Great for friends, family, kids, welcoming environment to all.

this place is really cool. part of the new wave of breweries, more of a modern flare here, even a designer look to the place, and some really hip and inventive beers, very tasty stuff, this is one of my favorite breweries in the state that i have been to so far, and i will be stoked to make it back in here at some point. its a cool space, smaller than i thought it would be from the outside, with neatly arranged lateral wood stripping around the whole place, concrete too, clever lighting, almost a nordic aesthetic or something, very cool, chic, yet inviting. they had a decent selection of beers in here, covering quite a bit of ground. i liked all of them that i had, the honey rye as a safer choice, the saison as a beautiful and drinkable clean take on the style, and the tin sky as a delicious yet trend following hazy beer driven by mosaic hops. the level of quality here stood out across the board, and that was also reflected in their small but thoughtful food menu. i had some killer spicy beef kebabs, and crave them again now as i write this. i want to go back for the wings too, they looked awesome. i wish i had more time to stay and hang, this is a great place, and i am sure they will be successful here with beers like this. service was solid too. great experience here! highly recommended.

They have moved to a new location down the street from their original tap room. They have several tables, a longer bar and a kitchen. They have a variety of items on the menu - small plates, large plates, sandwiches, flatbreads and snacks. They also serve wine. It is quite a step up from their original location, much more roomier!

I stopped in here for the first time this past weekend although they have been open for probably a year now. Their retail space is directly on Elm st but the entrance is around back where the parking is so you have drive down one of the side streets on either side of the building one of which is a one way street. So anyhow 7pm on a Friday and its just me and the guy behind the counter. He greeted me when I walked in then left me to peruse the shelves. After 10 minutes or so he asked if I was looking for anything in particular. Service if you want it but not up your butt like some places. They have a decent selection of brews for the state with many of the NH breweries represented on the 3 wire shelving units. Two singles coolers on the left wall and a mixed singles and 6 pack cooler against the back wall. Tasting area up front and they were sampling Woodstock brewery, although I didn't notice it until I was leaving. 10 percent off 6 or more singles and another 5 percent off your entire order if you bring back their branded white six pack holder. Prices about what I expected to pay. It's not a huge space but it seemed kind of empty. Like a store that had just opened and hadn't been fully stocked yet, or a a store that was closely watching their inventory because they had already thrown away too much old beer. I managed to find enough beer to keep me interested. There are better larger selections of beer not far from here, but I wouldn't hesitate to shop here.

Had a date night here with the wife, she picked it. Big open space on a corner lot with lots of windows to look out at Veterans Park or Elm St. Typical Pub fare, but very well done, my burger was great. Lots of local beer, I had an IPA from Great North as well as Henniker. Our server was great, and the guy who seated us actually helped us with movie times while my phone was acting up. About 40 dollars for two meals and three drinks between us. Seems like what passes for the norm these days. We’ll be back.

Small tasting room with bar that seat maybe 10. Seven of their beers and one guest tap. The 1 I had was excellent. Unfortunately they are such a small brewery they only fill growlers of one of their beers and the guest tap. This was very disappointing. They sell 4pk, but not singles nor mixed packs.

Brewery is a converted auto repair shop, with pub tasting room in adjacent building. Place is played out kinda weird with 2 bars and dining rooms. More than a dozen beers on tap, the 2 I had were good. Friendly server. Food was tasty, but also pricey.

This brewpub has been open only a few months. It is located in a refurbished, large red barn structure along the main street/highway (M-43) that passes through this small community. The interior is all wooden rustic with large barn beams, etc. A small bar with only a few seats is in the center of the pub, and a good number of tables/chairs fill the rest of the place. (The business also houses a tea room.) There is also some seating in a loft area. The vibe is very nice.
For a new brewery, they have their recipes pretty well dialed in to the equipment. There were 9 beers on tap at the time of our visit. We ordered a sampler flight of 4 of them. Each was brewed to style, and there was consistency across out four beers because we scored all of them at 3.75. All 4 of our beers were Belgian-inspired, so the brewer here may tend to prefer that style. (Five of the nine on tap were Belgian.)
We did not order food, but the menu is a simple list that is available on the brewery's website. The website stated they use organic ingredients (but does not say all ingredients) and vegan friendly, We drive past this place several times each year on your way to the Lake Michigan beaches at South Haven, so we'll be stopping in some more.

An all right place in an area with quite a bit of stiff competition on both the beer and food fronts. It is a medium-sized bar that has an old-ish feel to it. They have a full bar and a kitchen. They have a few standards on tap as well as a handful of rotating/special/collaborative beers. The beer on the whole is pretty standard, inoffensive beer (blonde, rousse, noire style--if that makes sense). The handful of beers I tried were okay, but none were spectacular or super inventive either. Same goes for the food. Not bad, but not shockingly good either. Not much else to say.

gorgeous establishment here, the place looks brand new, almost with a fingerlakes winery aesthetic, open spaces, lots of wood, high ceilings, some lofted seating area, a more refined look here than the other breweries in town, brand new equipment shining behind the bar, a neat place to be sure. they had an ambitious sounding beer list too, a wet hopped offering and a cabernet beer that were both very nice, while the honey cream and some of the other hoppy ones left a bit to be desired. i think its interesting the disparity in objective quality on this beer menu, like some of these beers are fantastic, while others really are pretty poor by any measure, there is plenty of room for improvement but also lots of promise. service was fine here, everyone seemed in good spirits, and it seems like they have a pretty good business going here. i know in a small town a brewery has to be flexible to what the locals like, and i think they have a nice balance on their menu. its amazing how beer has blown up in montana, it really is happening everywhere! this place has some growing into their shoes to do a little bit, but its a beautiful place and im sure its only a matter of time.

I work around the corner and we do a lot of take out business for lunches. Take out can be somewhat slow given the odd set up, but we've learned to call ahead. Dining room service is good. The dining room area is a clean, sort of industrial vibe with a massive bar and taps prominently displayed on the wall - 40 taps. They feature mostly MA beers, but do branch out into regional and some surprising "imports" to Mass as well.
Food was hit/miss for a bit as this was a new kitchen, but seems to have settled in nicely. The take out and eat-in menus do differ. Wood fired pizza is dining room only, though, so something to be aware of. The place is generally packed during dinner hours. Elevated pub grub - sandwiches, apps, salads, great clam chowder and kale soup. About ten main course meals and usually a couple of specials. Prices are maybe slightly higher than some other locations in town, but the food is consistently made well.
Good food, decent vibe, kind of a townie feel without being unwelcoming. Worth a stop as a good option in the area.

a really neat place, upstairs on the second floor of what appears to be a cool historic building right in the center of town there. its got an old saloon or dance hall vibe to it, lots of wood, very casual, but also kind of like it was grand in its time. the place is absolutely packed for trivia, patrons of all ages and their dogs too! the wait at the bar for a drink on a weeknight was several minutes long, this must be a local favorite. they had a pretty nice selection of beers going on in here, something for everyone, and i enjoyed a blonde ale with coffee called shower beer, as well as a surprisingly modern oatmeal based pale ale called ornery goat. both were somewhat simple beers, but both quite good. i got a chance to spend some time chatting with the brewer, who seems to be working mighty hard to keep things flowing in here. good dude, quite humble, and it shows in the beers. the place would be relaxing on a quieter night, but with the trivia going on and people wall to wall, it all felt a little too chaotic to be chill, but i liked the energy and the apparent enthusiasm for the beers. hoping to make it back here to try more of their stuff next time...

We stopped to eat sushi while waiting in the Cancun International Airport for our delayed flight. The food was just average and a bit pricy, but they did have some draft beers not found in regular stores or at most bars, albeit just average.
