“Nice little local brewery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Locals call this place The Brew Pub. It's a great local brewery with inside and outdoor seating. There is a variety of food and the beer sampler is great. I rarely drink and one big beer is too much for me, but the sampler allows me to taste a variety of beers without wasting a large amount of beer. They also sell a freshly baked bread that is great. Particular food favorite is the fish and chips. Their fries can be ordered regular or garlic style. You can also give special instructions when ordering. The service is wonderful and you can order food to go. Give this place a try. It's a little rustic which lends a certain charm to the place. While it's a pub, the place is big enough inside where you can sit closer to the action or a little farther away for a quieter experience. Kids are welcome and they will accommodate larger groups.

“Never a disappointment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I've been to this brewery quite often, and it still remains one of my favorites. Their beer selection is fantastic. They usually have around 15 beers on tap at any given time. I would highly recommend getting a sampler to try them all (you can get a 4oz cup of each of the beers, each sample is $1). Their food is fantastic too. They have all you basic pub grub (burgers, fish and chips, etc.) plus a few extras, like shepard's pie. A lot of their food incorporates their beers as well. I really like their outside seating too. Their tables are all individually painted with different themes.

“Nice brewery and grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We ordered a 24 oz beer and appetizer along with dinner. The beer could of been a lot colder or served in a cold mug, other than that the food is good and the atmosphere was nice also.

“A pleasant suprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is a little gem of a place. It has a number of specialized beers that are great but be careful they pack a punch! The food is limited on choice but they do it well and I have tried various meals though my favorite is fish and chips superb. Though they do a mean sausage as well. You need to get they early on the week-end if you want to eat outside
