Sadly the new location rarely impresses. Expansive and cavernous feeling inside, the beer has suffered as well. For the better part of a year Iíve noticed a common and off taste to many of their in house brews. Sample the house beers, but order the guest beers.

Large place located in a shopping center. The bar area is massive as is the bar itself. I went on a Friday and was impressed by how many people they had behind the bar. They had 11 of their beers on tap 1 on cask plus 10 guest taps. The beers ranged from bland to sold with nothing either outstanding or terrible. the food was very flavorful and everything was very reaonably priced especially after spending a couple of days in Boston.

My favorite watering hole in Amherst. Well crafted and full bodied home brewed beer. Always sample a few before taking a growler home.

Good food and good beer with an old style pub feel. A great stop for food for a beer geek before heading to the Ale House.

Upstairs was closed when I popped in recently, but the downstairs consists of a large but dark interior space. Lots of smallish rooms, each with their own feel... kind of like a British pub. Pretty reasonable prices, although the sliders I had were pretty crappy. The beers are decent, if not outstanding. The staff were very friendly and quite attentive. Kind of a typical brewpub lineup, but most are well-made. Their IPA and ESB were the best of the lineup. Worth checking out if youíre in the area.

We really enjoy Amherst Brewing Company. The atmosphere is comfortable and social. We always sit at the bar and appreciate that it is set up so that you are sitting directly across from other patrons. This arrangement has led to many great conversations with other beer enthusiasts. They recently added an addition to the existing dining room and have a second floor lounge and game room.
The quality and consistency of the brews is top notch. We make a point to try all of their specialty brews which allow brewmaster Mike Yates to show his creative side. We recently enjoyed the Amherst Gold 250 an Imperial IPA and the Super Stout (an Oatmeal Stout) on cask.
The service is consistently friendly and the selection is great with about 8-10 beers on draft, one on cask and a lager of some variety.
The food is quite good, and consists of mainly traditional pub fare. Including soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and a pretty nice vegetarian menu.

beer tour, 09/22/08. stopped by in the late morning and were seated pretty quickly. Waitress took order, sampler for myself, icd tea for wife. We also ordered food, bean and chicken soup for Kadie, Irish stew for myself. Beers arrived after a bit, and I thought they all had a very odd tase to them. It was as if the sample glasses had been washed and inadequately rinsed, a very odd taste. The food on the other hand, was excellent, both my stew and my wifeís soup were well prepared, hot, and served in a decent portion size. If my experience concerning the beer is not typical, well sorry, they were bad. The food was definitely worth the trip and I reccomend stopping by for that.

I had fun here. The two beers I had were quite good (I had the Cascade IPA and ESB) and they had 15 beers to select from at the time. Service and menu was alright, you can pretty much do whatever you want to a burger or Chicken sandwich. Theyíve got full dinner meals as well. Definitely a college place. Iíd go back.

Did lunch in here after running the sampler. Service was a little slow and aloof. Food was more than adequate, but not outstanding. Parking was the main issue, meters everywhere in this college town. Seating outside would probably have been more fun. Donít look for any outstanding beers here, but I canít pass up a brewpub when travelling, so....

This is a very typical brewpub, however, by sticking it in a college town it somehow seemed a litle more fun.. They had an alright selection of their beers and the food was pretty good for the usual pub grub they offered.
