This restaurant is on our way out of the Sunday River ski area. We stopped and I ad a black and blue burger cooked to perfection. Many brews on tap. They are now serving breakfast for a stop on your way to skiing but have not done that myself.

My son and I stopped in after a long drive from Pa. and were treated very well and fed even better. We got a nice place by the fire and enjoyed a burger and a chicken salad, both of which were very good. The beer selection is decent as well. For a resort area, the prices were not bad either.

I had eaten at SRBC a few times in the past and it was okay. Decided to give another try now that it is under new management. First off the service is great. Friendly and fun. The menu is awesome. The food so delicious. I had a burger with egg, bacon, shaved steak and a cheese sauce. Onion rings on... More

Stephanie made our day. She was a delight. Her knowledge of the many beers was right on and we all enjoyed the sampler. The chili nachos were too sweet for my taste but everyone else enjoyed them. The Brew Pub salad was huge and the Blue Cheese burger was a huge hit. The beer is wonderful. I usually drink wheat... More

This time we had the flat bread for an appetizer; steak and cheese and lobster roll for dinner. Delicious! The outside fire adds a special touch to end the evening with. It's worth being a bit cold to enjoy a drink by the fire.

Though a no nonsense approach to food, portions as in most of the US were generous and tasty. Enough variety to suit the taste buds of our party of six and child. The brewery right in the centre of it all, glass enclosed was very interesting. veena mallick
