a very basic brewpub .. the beers were average at best, though a couple were very nice .. the food was terrific (anyone say poutine!?!) .. my server was a bit of a schmuck .. overall: a decent place- iíd go back for the food alone

A great spot for beer in Niagara Falls. It is a little removed from the touristy area and the falls themselves, but still walkable from there if you want to. The architecture/set up was a little strange for me - almost warehouse-like with high ceilings. There is a dining area, then the tanks, right behind the bar itself. So the tanks are in the middle of the restaurant, which is a little weird. Also not much decoration on the walls and whatnot, just felt like an empty place (in addition there were like 2-3 other customers on a Monday afternoon). Anyway, apart from that, I really enjoyed the beer. I tried the IPA, Kolsch, Schwarzbier, and pumpkin and all were great. Pretty good prices ($4.50 for an imperial pint). I thought the food was overpriced for what it was (got a chicken souvlaki which was a little dry and the mashed potatoes were completely bland, for $14). My overall rating might be a little low based on a combination of all the score components, but I really enjoyed the beer there and would recommend stopping here for a pint.

A pleasant brewpub, newer interior we sat outside on a beautiful day. Pub brews were ok to good, I liked the ipa best. Food was pretty good

Looked newly renovated, very clean and nice inside. Service was excellent. Not much of a selection but there are a few gems. Large food portions at a reasonable price. I will be returning for a growler of chokeslam!

Strange location, I think they would do better a little closer to the heart of Nia falls, but wasnít hard to find, nice big building, first think you notice is the tall ceiling, Dining room and Bar spilt by the brewing tanks, I think the dining room atmosphere would just be that much better if they put glass plating behind the booths that face the bar, and the tanks, it just felt weird so open, we really liked the food and it was pretty reasonable priced, I go here fairly often nw

Niagara Falls, a police state. Cruise the town in a car or truck to find it, but beware as it is heavily policed.Visited here with Cratez on a Monday afternoon.
We were greeted with a very large and well lit warehouse that seated a bar to sit at, a brew house, a dining room, and an open concept kitchen. One can see what is going on in every corner of the restaurant at any time.
We sat at the bar, where we noticed a new addition to the scene here, a cask engine. They were waiting for their next cask to be ready, so it was not available.
Service was fairly standard. Not poor, not great. The basic meet and greet, "what can I get for you?" was about it. We tried to strike up chat with the barkeep but he was more interested with his co-workers and other patrons. Canít say I blame him really, we werenít that interesting. One thing I can say is that the service was attentive at the very least.
There were 10 taps to choose from. I went with the Taps Chuck Norris, Hefe, and 80/-. All were well made and worth ordering again. There were also guest taps from Niagaraís best.
One thing I must say about this place is that the value here is unmatched. $3.50 pints on Sunday. $10 burger and 20 oz pint.$19.80 3 LITER "pitchers". It goes on and on. Based on this aspect, the place is a repeat visit for me. Growlers are available to go. Good overall.

Great place. Very interesting specials on tap, tasty food, and friendly staff. We went there at a quiet time, and it was relaxing and fun.

I came here in June 2010 after spending a weekend in Niagara On The Lake for a friendís wedding. My primary objective was to grab a couple growlers of the brewpubís best beers since I was on my way home and short on time.
Despite being in a rush, I took a few minutes to wander around the attractive, sparkling interior. The ten-seater bar overlooks a large and beautiful outdoor patio. Thereís a sizable dining area behind the bar and the chefs are all decked out in professional garb, so on the surface it appears they take their food seriously.
I was extremely satisfied with the quick and friendly service as the waitress gave me a 4oz sample of the Rye Knot before I purchased a growler of it. I also bought a six pack of the Premium (Dortmunder) Lager. Both were good if unspectacular beers. They didnít have the Chuck Norris IPA ready yet, which was very disappointing, but whatever. Other draughts were the Vanilla Wheat, Charleston Lager, and Rauchbier, with Neustadt 10w30 and Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion serving as the two guest taps.
The vibe seems welcoming and unpretentious, as even the patrons were all smiles on my visit. In addition to the quality service, the head brewer was out on the floor chatting it up with some tourists. Certainly a place that I would frequent if I lived in the area.
Basically this brewpub is an up-and-comer in the Ontario beer scene, and if I had more time I would have sat down and ran through every one of their offerings. A great spot thatís doing rare yet traditional styles, and I was really impressed with the inviting, professional layout inside.

Nice building, the food was decent but nothing to write home about. The beer selection was disapointing, only 3 beers on tap, and all of them were available in the LCBO. They said on their website that they were tapping a pumpkin beer the day i was going, but the staff looked at me like i had 3 heads when i mentionned it. The staff was not the friendliest íve ever met. All in all, i dont see myself going back.
