“Exellent brewery and very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Have been there several times and the selection and quality of brews is excellent. The food is consistently very good and service also good to very good. However, it can be insanely crowded, and forget going during touriust season, as you will have a two-hour wait and probably won't even be able to get into the parking lot.

“Great Brew Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I love the BEER!!!
Most of the food is good, with some spots of greatness like the Mac and Cheese and the seared ahi salad. Go and drink the beer and then share the food. :)

“Fun to try different brews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Loved sampling many of their brews. Happy hour is til 6:30 and we took advantage of this 2 out of the 4 days we were in the area. The hummus as well as the wings were very good. We also had the Beermister burger and the NY cheesecake. I would recommend both.
