We were here to have lunch and the food was terrible. It was literally the worst burger I have ever endured, and it's got to be hard to mess up a burger. My husband's food was overcooked. We will not go back.

“Beer Only, if that.”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

After reading the menu to this place, my wife and I wanted to go to have some German food and fried appetizers. For some reason everything was soggy. The French fries were limp and the onion rings were chewy with no crisp. The bottle caps were really good but the German potato salad and jagerschnitzel were very bland.

In a nut shell, the wait staff was eating Mexican food that was delivered and ate it right in front of the patrons. That food looked 10 times better and made me wish I was eating it. The beer was ok. Nothing to write home about. I would not go back, but if you want a beer you can walk outside with then go here.

“Better than we expected”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We were in Fredricksburg on a Sunday evening and there is not much open for dinner. Fortunately we walked by the Brewing Co and decided to give it a try. The place was busy but we were seated promptly and the server took our order right away. We ordered the nachos and the fish tacos. When the nachos came out and we saw the size, we wondered aloud if we should have also ordered the tacos. Our server said she hadn't yet put in the order for the tacos and said she would be happy to wait to see if we still wanted them later. We didn't. The nachos were great and obviously very hearty, although the jalapenos were not put on the side as we requested. We ordered the lightest of the beers and did enjoy it. The only real negative is that the busboy dropped a whole tray of dishes from the table next to us and then proceeded to clean it with something that had an overpowering Pinesol smell...................not appetizing. Still, it was a fun place to eat.

“Just OK”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

Ok beer, ok food, ok service, ok atmosphere- everything was just ok. Nothing great but nothing bad. I had a cheeseburger and my husband had a Reuben sandwich. We each tried 2 different beers. I am hoping that we find a better restaurant and better beer today!
