Came in on a Sunday Afternoon. Had the place to myself. Nice atmosphere. Service was below minimal. Beer was blah. Food was blah. Nothing much going on here.

Right on the main drag in Davis, a characterful and comfortable town. Plenty of parking out front. Lots of local folks having lunch stopped to chat with us, and owner Lincoln, who took over the place as a turn-key in 2012 when it was German-themed place, spent lots of time with us chatting about craft beer in WV. Heís re-focused the place on beer, with pub food in support; we had just eaten at Lost River, so weíll have to return to try the food here. Four house beers were on offer, which rotate periodically; itís nice to see a tap line-up that changes once in a while. All were decent enough. Worthwhile for its extremely friendly vibe, and to see how the beers evolve. Great place to relax.

Nice enough ambience. Only 3 so-so beers on draft. Not much of a draw.

I really want to like this place, but I just canít. I have stopped in about once a year for the last several years. Summer, Winter, it doesnít matter. The beer is forgettable and the food just plain bad. Itís a shame.

Stopped by for dinner while vacationing in Canaan Valley. I tried both the IPA and the marzen, they were fairly average brews. 5/7 people in my party enjoyed their meal. Strange menu with dedicated sections for both German and Italian fare. The dedicated dining area was set up similar to a standard German bier garden with plenty of wooden tables and benches. The rest of the brewpub had a somewhat haphazard layout with a fireplace, bar area (with brew tanks visible directly behind the bar), mini stage area for bands, and gameroom.

Avoid this place. The service was not unfriendly, but it certainly wasnít polite. The food at this location was an insult to both Germans and Italians. My spaghetti was floating in a pool of water and the cabbage on my wifeís cabbage rolls was like leather. The ambiance was alright but only because the brewing tanks are right out in the open. The beer is weak and does not taste very good. WV offers several good breweries, but this is not one of them.

Rustic ambiance. Decent bar with several made-on-site brews, the 3 sampled were excellent. Tanks visible behind bar. A beautiful out-of-the-way brewpub that is completely worth the trip. Peace, quiet, slow-paced, great brew - what more could one want?
