Tasty beer and pub food. Extensive menu. Juicy burger with inventive flavor combinations - I enjoyed the Vineyard; my husband had the fish & chips (he thought good but he has had better). Come hungry!

It’s all about how the surroundings make me feel at a brewery. The food was pretty good. Some of the better brew houses have gone more the “craft” food direction, and this place was much more towards your average pub fare. Sandwiches and burgers had...More
