“Amazing local brewery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Ambience is superb. Beer selection varied and interesting. Good food both on menu and from deli cabinet. Attached retail area still in construction but will be amazing when finished.

“Active brewery pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Good pub food, live acoustic music on weekends. Very interesting to have all the brewing equipment expose right behind the bar. Very good selection of craft beers. Good outdoor seating. Service was slow and impolite though.

“Fantastic Pizza and a great Sunday evening envronment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We visited this place as a group on a Sunday evening. Ordered various meals from the menu, all of which looked excellent. We ordered the "Burnham" pizza, which had an excellent thin crispy base and was really flavoursome. Obvioulsy totally freshly prepared. Excellent range of beers - in fact really excellent. and not too expensive. $18 for the pizza (standard price across the range) and $9 for a pint of the IPA. For a Sunday evening this was also a great atmosphere - live music, speedy efficient and friendly service, and a good crowd of people. Maybe this is the "upside" of the earthquakes - it's great!
