“Some excellent beer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Some of the food is great, like the burger and the pork BBQ, and have never had bad food there. The beer is good for a micro brewery and some of seasonals are inspired genius, specifically one called Pajama Boy Rye, which is awesome. It's good to have local flavor, and this is it.

“Not your typical appetizers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This was a great stop for mid-afternoon appetizers. Homemade brews were excellent. We split orders of superb Scotch Eggs and Bavarian Beer Nuggets. (Items you typically don't find on menus, and far from typical fare.) We loved them both and were quite satisfied. Service could have been more attentive. I would like to return to try other items.

“Felt ill after eating here”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

I had the beer sampler, as did three others in my group, you know, since this was a micro brewery and all. Everyone unanimously agreed the beers were terrible. Three of us couldn't stomach finishing the samplers. I have never had a problem finishing a beer before.

The food: I ordered French onion soup and the brisket sandwich. Soup was nothing special but the sandwich was brutal! Words like "tender" and "top cut sour dough" bun got my attention on the menu. Thoughts like "this meat is tough" and "this bun is a regular processed bread bun and is disgusting" entered my mind while eating it. I'll admit the price is reasonable but does that account for low quality food? The potato chips on the plate were tasty and seemed homemade.

Decor is a little low brow for a brew pub. A fresh remodel would make the space less grimy seeming. The servers were great and efficient.

However, we couldn't get out of there fast enough. I felt ill afterward and was angry this restaurant was my choice for the group to visit that night. Reviews are important, I'll be sure to check others people's experiences and recommendations before deciding on a place to eat tonight.

My recommendation is to skip this spot and be prepared to pay more money for good food somewhere else in Lafayette.

“Horrible beer and disappointing food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Went tonight with 5 friends. 4 ordered a sampler tray of beer (11 beer on tray). Most of the beer was horrible tasting. All thought this. Only 1 finished his his tray. Food was very disappointing as well....very dry and unappealing. Atmosphere was something to be desired.

Great selection of locally brewed beer along with an original menu. Bison burgers, scotch eggs, great salads, fish & chips.
