Great locally brewed beers. Some different types you don't see at many micro breweries. Had BBQ the day we were there.

Nice, large tap room. They're in the process of some renovations, but nothing that interfered with the atmosphere. The bar was full when we entered, so we grabbed an English pale ale and kolsch. Both were very true to the original, including the proper glassware for each. We t took a seat in the back liVing room set up. Very... More

The owner let us bring in some burgers from down the road. The beer left an aftertaste and two 12oz glasses cost $10.60

The place was closed, but we managed to get the owner to open and sampled some of his beer which was excellent, much better than the bigger enterprises in the area; and my son and I have sampled quite some beer on the east coast as well as California.

As noted in other reviews, Blackwater Brewing no longer serves food (temporarily). The owner is concentrating on expanding the brewery side of the business right now and will reopen or lease the restaurant side after renovations are complete. He is concentrating on European style "session brews", which are generally described as lower ABV and lighter drinking (not as heavy/hoppy) beers... More

We were very disappointed to learn on our visit 2/6 that they are no longer serving. The delicious German fare we were so looking forward too. Unfortunately we didn't find it out until we had passed up another dinner option. Apparently this is short term, a new chef will be taking over soon so the owner can focus on brewing.... More

My wife, son and I arrived here late and learned they have closed their kitchen for renovations. Although slightly disappointed, we grabbed a table in front of a roaring fire and ordered a flight of their microbrews. I do not like hoppy beers and their beers were non-hoppyand absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, my wife was hungry so we left but I... More

Oh yeah this place is awesome! Their microbrew selection focuses on quality over quantity and it shows! They have a good variety of light to heavier beers. Their food is quite good and I would recommend ordering their bratwurst or kielbasa with a side of mozzarella sticks to share among your group! I've been here many times and they don't... More

Arrived here about 8:30 the Saturday evening before Mothers Day. It was an impromptu visit to the Canaan Valley, and we knew their restaurant would be closed by the time we got to the lodge and checked in. It does seem things don't get into summer mode in the valley until Memorial Day weekend. We were greeted by the owner... More

There was no food the evening we stopped by, but they had beer! Their own English pale ale was very good. they were sold out of their other varieties, but had some other good beers on tap. The owner and staff were great, as were the other patrons. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I want to come earlier next fall... More
