Description: Since 1995 the Barrington Brewery has been serving our own Barn Brewed Beer and food made from scratch. We were the first brewery on the east coast to install a solar panel system that supplies solar-heated hot water for brewing and restaurant use.

“Better than usual brew food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

There were 8 of us seated at two tables side by side and we were greeted at the door by a very friendly hostess. I think we had at least 3 different folks bring out various pieces of our order so we were never looking to find someone if we needed a refill,etc. All were friendly and efficient. We continue to bring our group there frequently because we always have a pleasant experience. I know I wasn't disappointed with my avocado sandwich and beer battered fries;and hubby was pleased with his roast beef sandwich. Our only concern was the side du jour cole slaw but time has passed and no gastric trouble...maybe lighter on the dressing is needed. Dessert of raspberry peach crisp slightly warmed with vanilla ice cream allowed us the pig nose award from our group.

“Home made everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

This place has a great kitchen staff and above average food. Other than the nacho chips i think that everything is made from scratch. Beer is fresh and cold . if you are a hoppy beer lover than this place is your slice of heaven. I prefer a bit maltier selection but I can usually blend a few different types into a tasty pint. located in a touristy area of the berkshires,it can become quite busy, and a bit loud .ski season is busy with two ski areas within fifteen minutes. there are numerous hotels in town and a good shopping center in town. There Are numerous artistic ,musical and other cultural happenings all thru the year within a few minutes drive . So come on by for a pint or two and some real home made food. Talk with a local and have a good time

“The chocolate cake is a meal in itself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Whenever I am in the Berkshires, this is one of my favorite places to stop. The beer is tasty, the atmosphere is super-friendly, and treating myself to the chocolate cake (made with their stout!) is always a good time. Our server, Carol, was both friendly and efficient! What more could you want?
