“Delicious food and hops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Everything is good, you simply can't go wrong. Menu is available online for preview which is cool. Different kinds of beer to suit everyone's taste. The venerable Blueberry Wheat is light and tasty, plus the 10.5% ABV IPA will get you nice and warm. Servers are really cool and knowledgeable. You can get a table with full view of the brewing operation which is cool too. Take a sixer back to your room, or pick up some brewery swag on the way out. I almost never order chicken out, but this came right out of the smoker and it was out of control, unreal good. Some of the best I've ever had. Fish and chips was like a good, old-school Buffalo fish fry. Brewer fries came topped with cheese and pulled pork, super good. If you are health conscious, eat a light breakfast and lunch because you don't want to count calories at this place. Its just not worth it, every things is so freaking good!

“Great food despite the wait, noise, and crowds!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

The place was packed two nights in a row! Wait time was estimated at 45 minutes, so we took a pager and finally scored two bar stools. Over an hour later the pager went off, and we were seated. Our food came quickly, and it was very good!
Beer choices are interesting and creatively titled. Beware of the Pantius Droppus - excellent flavor and a buzz that sneaks up on you! Too bad they were out of Black Hops - sounded interesting.

“Awesome beer, awesome food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I love this place. The Chocolate Cherry Bomb, one of their season stiuts is phenominal...think Guiness with hints of chocolate and cherry. The brew master was behind the bar and he was incredibly perceptive. Dinner was really good, well worth the long 1+hour wait. Nice place with a lively atmosphere. Check it out!

“If you like great beer and fusion food. Definitely come here!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2012

This was a huge surprise to me as we were passing through and had no recommendations except other reviews on trip advisor. My husband brews beer so we always like to try beer all over the world. My passion is fusion food all over the world. They have a sesame tuna wonton dish and a spicy African soup that was delicious. For those that want BBQ pulled pork with a beer or Hamberger that have that too which they highly recommended!! My husband enjoyed the blackjack oatmeal stout. This should be the #1 place to eat!!!!!
