I am also surprised this place doesnít get more reviews...of course I suspect some of the confusion is the Gem & Keystone brewpub out by the road (serving most of the same beers)...Iím not sure people realize the main brewery and taproom are further in on the property (setback on the right as you drive in to the hotel)...their name is painted on the side of the aluminum building. There is no food served here so you can see the review two below mine was referring to the Gem & Keystone. I found the staff to be great...and they took care of me very well. I did flights of all their beers and enjoyed a number of them (Saison IPA, Biere della Notte, Wet-Hopped Saison, Black IPA, and Bourbon Barrel Porter). I was fortunate there was live music...a great solo artist playing mostly blues. Note that when you go to the restrooms you get to see the whole well as their wood barrels. ShawneeCraft is a simple place...purest almost...itís about the beer and the people (and music if you time it right). I stayed till the music ended and they closed...then the bartenders were nice enough to direct me down the road to the Minisink Hotel for some really great late night food (and some decent craftbeer bottles). I recommend a visit if in the area or passing through. They are just over the river from only about 40 minutes from the Parsippany area where I live.

Stopped in for a couple growler fills. The brewery is tucked behind the inn. You walk in and are in the brewery, to the left is a small bar area where they have a few taps and limited bottled selection. I stopped in during the afternoon and there were a few others partaking. They filled my growlers and I picked up a couple bottles. Was much pricier then expected, especially picking up at source. Also had some issues filling the growlers, luckily I was drinking that evening as there was alot of air let in on pours as the tender kept blaming the growler style. It was a standard one.

A nice craft brewery in a ski resort town in the Poconos, off route 80 on the PA-NJ border. Iím a little surprised they donít get more ratings! A nice restaurant setting next to a ski resort. Iím not even sure they had a bar. They had about 6 beers on tap, which were pretty good. They feature a couple of regulars and a couple of seasonals plus maybe one special barrel aged beer. I got to try their brown ale, pale ale, English pale ale, porter, and bourbon barrel aged porter. The food was great too- I got the chicken and it was very good, large portions too. Very friendly servers and there may be some deals with certain ski resorts because they asked if we had coupons. Overall I quite enjoyed my time there and the beers and food were great. I would definitely visit again!

Beer choices are limited to the tap list (about 6) and a few bottles. Luckily, the tap list features some very solid beers. Great ambiance, knowledgable bartenders, really good food featuring locally sourced ingredients. One of my favorite places to have a pint in the Poconos.
