“first home brewfest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

they had a homebrew fest at Bethel inn. Was very good and alot of fun. This was the first year they did it, I am sure it will catch on more next year. The beer did get a little warm but really was a nice idea. Enjoyed it.

“Great beer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Food choices brought the rating down but one doesn't always go to a brewery for the food. Sides offered were all starches. Offering more vegetable choices or even a salad would be an improvement. My husband had a decent lobster roll but found the fries lacking. Service was fast and friendly.

“On the deck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Have gone twice now, both for lunch. I had the lobster roll, my husband a club sandwich. Both were very good. The service was good and the beer excellent. We live in NH and will take a Sunday drive with the Brewing Company as the destination for lunch. As a matter of fact we're heading out there this weekend.
