I came to the Blue Canoe on a mini beer tour of NW PA, this was our first stop of our trip.
The place is very nice and wide open when you walk in. There are very high ceiling, nice wooden floors, a decent sized bar, half a dozen high tables around the bar area and another dozen tables throughout the remainder of the building. The quality of the beer were had were really good, they had an outstanding Snickers Stout (made with snickers bars), a nitro Black IPA which went was a hit, a decent pale and scotch ale, and average amber, lager, and light lagers. The service was outstanding as we were attended to every couple of minutes, bartender was very knowledgable about the beers, and waitress very friendly. The selection was decent from their variety of beer listed above. The food that was ordered was well prepared, no one in our group had any complaints and this was from a wide array of a pasta dish, fish dish, a salad, nachos, and order of pretzels. Pints were 3.75, half pints 2.25, which were cheap in my mind but food was a little pricier than it probably should have been.
Even though Titusville is far off the beaten path, the Blue Canoe is worth the stop. My only complaint would be having a lager and a light lager on the menu, with only 7 beers on tap.

Had lunch here on a Saturday afternoon. Nice little place in downtown. Open and inviting, nice decor. Fantastic service and several beers on tap. Had soup and wonton of the day, both were excellent. Easy drive/bike to Drakeís Well and the bike path to Oil Creek State Park.

Went here on a Sunday. Very quiet and cold. Large open area with high celings, lots of brick and large windows. Decent sized bar area. Service was a bit spotty. The server did not know much about the beer. 7 taps and about 6 large Voodoo bottles were the only selection. Beer was ok but nothing special. Food menu was reasonably extensive. Our dinners were pretty tasty and reasonably priced. An interesting place but not really worth the long trip it took me to get there.

Overall a very nice brewpub with good food out near the Allegheny National Forrest in a cozy little historic town, a jewel. You would think since this place was near the Univ of Pgh Titusville that there would be lots of young folk here, but no. The friday night we stopped by it was really busy and loud from conversations but most were older hometown kinda people. The place itself is a historic old building from the early 1900 and is tastefully done to convert it into an interesting well decored brewpub. Interesting tour down some wierd hallways to get to the john! Later in the evening some acoustic guitar and banjo guy was playing near the bar but not too loud. Friendly staff with a sophisticated menu that also has veggie friendly selections. I had the grooper and it was dee-lish. My wife had some kinda chicken sandwich on a pretzel bun and said it was OK. I had a sampler of seven beers for $6 and the prices for the food was quite affordable by city standards.

Stopped by today on the way back from the hinterlands for a bite and a beer. The place is a pretty cool restaurant set up with decent food (at least the burger was good), a limited, but decent tap list of house stuff and VooDoo bombers. Service was OK, but a bit slow... still, it was Friday evening. All in all, itís a decent place to stop if youíre in the area. You can get growlers for around 8 bucks with 5 for the glass. Didnít think to ask if they only fill their own...

The old 4 Sons Building is still the same but that is about all that remains of the enterprise. I had the 7 beer sampler served on their paddle but found only 3 of the beers to be up to 4 Sons standards. I realize these are different owners and brewer but the beer just isnít as good. As for the food, my wife loved her Brew Burger with carmelized onion and all the fixings and her order of pub fries. I had their Northern Bean and Sausage soup with oregano, and I mean a LOT of oregano, too much. It overwhelmed the flavor of everything else. So Iím kinda split on my rating of the food. Still a great local place to take the family with a wonderful atmosphere and fair pricing.
