“Great food, great brews!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

This brew pub has a great variety of beers brewed on-site that are also available in stores. My husband has been a fan of them for a long time, but we had't dined here before now. The menu has many pizzas and just a couple of sandwiches, but the pizza was so good and there is such a variety, I don't think you need many other options. We didn't order a burger, but the ones we saw coming from the kitchen looked wonderful. We started with the beer cheese and bread appetizer and it was delicious. After that, splitting a "pie" as they are called, was just right. We chose the "Yo, Adrian" and we loved it. Sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, provolone and gardiniera. Next time we plan to try the Hawaiiowan, which is BBQ sauce, Canadian bacon and pineapple. Service was top-notch as well.

“Andrew Is the Man!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

We were visiting for a food show next door at the Marriot. We found the brewery to be very informative and entertaining all becouse of Andrew! He was so knowlegable in the beers and we were happy for all the information on the establishment.My husband had the flight of beers and couyld not find one he did not like. I do not normaly drink beer but that changed after my first taste. It was a very enjoyable night all becouse of his great knowledge of the business and his personal attention!Thanks again for a wonderful night! (Our group were comprised of A Chef,manager and business owners which can be a tough group to please but not when you have a person that truly enjoys his job!)

“Fun place for a beer and to watch a game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I watched a Stanley Cup playoff game here with a buddy and had a very good time. The beer they brew is very good, at least dark variety I drank was. It looked like pizza is their specialty and the waiter said they grilled burgers outside when the weather was nice. The bar area was a little noisy due to the construction I think. So probably not a good place for alot of conversation.

“God Place for a Quick Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Good beer and pizza. Some salads and snacks available as well. A little too noisy because of all the brewing equipment/processing.
