3fourths  (1271) Boulder, Colorado | August 13, 2006| Updated April 20, 2013
A nice small-to-mid-sized town brewery, full of locals, staffed by locals. They had 11 beers on tap when I visited, including the Old Toad Barley Wine, the 10th Anniv. Red^2, two saisons and others. Overall the quality of the beer was very high, with the Edgar IPA being especially well crafted. Bartenders were OK, prices were OK (was there on their 10th Anniv. so pints were only $2.50), and the Jamacian Jerk Chicken Wings were tasty, even if their sauce wasnít close to real jerk sauce.

Probably the most overrated place in the area. The food is nothing special and Iíve never had a beer that blew my socks off. Iíve been back 3-4 times since Iíve posted this review. Iíve had some a couple of tasty beers, especially the coffee saison, but itís not a place I immediately want to go to. Update 6-22-13 Iíve had a bit of a rethink about this place. If its so mediocre and overrrated why do I keep going back? They have maybe 10 taps but other the the Billtown Blonde and the Edgar IPA everything is always changing. Thatís pretty ambitious Iíd say and worth keeping an eye on.

A Great American Brewpub. You drink and eat right where the vats are. The owner serves you, lives upstairs, and plays backgammon. Lots of regulars eat there at least once a week. Beer is exceptional in quality and selection. Vast majority, reviews to follow, are brewed by a new brewmaster who follows more closely a set recipe. Good selection of music though not on my night there. Just good friendly small town people to enjoy beer session. Smokey. Very reasonable prices. A great place on the way to somewhere, worth stepping off the highway even when there is no Little League World Series.

Our first stop and it was a little disappointing on both the beer and food front. The building itself is pretty cool - a restored historic pub with lots of polished brass up front and a more private dining area toward the back. There was a band playing some jazz when we arrived, although it was a little bit loud for my tastes, the music was quite good. Our server was friendly enough, but didnít seem quite able to fill two sampler orders because they had run out of taster glasses - which doesnít seem like a normal thing in a brewpub. The food was pretty awful - a really dried out burger, some flavourless onion rings and just a generally lacklustre approach to food. The beers themselves were good (actually the IPA was terrific) but the operation could have been run a little more smoothly on this particular day.

This is a rather big pub but it doesnít feel it because the place is long but not very wide. Brewing equipment is sitting right behind the large bar. Friendly and relaxed service. I visited the pub on a week-day after-noon so it was obviously very quiet but I cannot imagine this place turning into a party place at night. Food menu is standard greasy pub food but the food quality was above average. When I was there they had 11 taps (including the amazing Kegs Gone Wild Busted Lawnmower Saison). I tried many beers, 1 bad one, 1 so-so, 1 was amazing and everything else was very good. They also seem to go off the beaten path a lot with their beers so you can expect 4 or 5 beers outside the standard brewpub line-up (Blonde/Amber/Stout/etc). Well worth the detour.

Iíve been here twice (once a couple years ago after a long day of brewpub hopping so I donít really remember much...and more recently on a Sunday morning in late August). We came for brunch - arrived around opening (9am) but beer is not served until 11am (seems a little silly and something that should be posted somewhere...). The beers I tried were quite good (Double Coffee Stout, El Diablo, Roggen Roll, Local Harvest Fresh Hop IPA). As you can see, they make plenty of interesting styles and there were ~8 beers on tap. You can get a sampler if you want. The atmosphere is nice a comfortable - the bar is facing several large brew tanks, there are a couple of TVs, and there was live music on a Sunday morning. The only trick is to find a close parking spot/ find the brewery (directions can be a little confusing).

auerbrau  (300) Peace Dale, Rhode Island | December 22, 2008
After multiple visits, Im still a little conflicted about this place. The food, sub-par, and the atmosphere, a little too Chatchkies, but the beer, often really nice. There is definitely a local, family feel. The waitstaff has been lacking in knowledge about their beer or the beer availability a few times and emails have gone unanswered. The two times I had food I was underwhelmed. This place is for beer, and beer only. The 750 bottle prices are a little insidious, but worth it for the heavy hitters. Bottom-line- worthy of a visit for the beer alone, but dont expect stellar service, good food, or open arms.

Stop one on the week long trip to Michigan for RBSG. Pulled in here and met up with zdk, JoeMcPhee, puzzl, and Maxdaddy. The atmosphere was pretty nice. Cozy but open spaces, with large fermentation tanks visible all around. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and there was a jazz jam going on, a basic trio (whose faces appeared on the do-not-miss mural outside) supplemented by some folks who looked like regulars, and a few who looked like local college or high school kids. For a Sunday afternoon a little after lunch time, the place was pretty packed, definitely a local hangout. As a result the place seemed slammed for service. The staff had a hard time getting two samplers worth of glasses for our table (we were fine on the pints that we got though), and food service seemed a bit slow and lackluster as well. The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. While the beers were fairly solid, I was hoping for something a little more... well, what I think of as Bullfrog. Which I guess is a stretch, because while it would be nice for a brewpub to have that huge local support by making only crazy sour funky experimental things, itís unrealistic. The IPA and Thai PA were great though. Certainly someplace Iíll probably stop at again, and a place Iíd love to have nearby.

Nice brewpub that was clean and had lots of fermentors and such all around. The service was excellent, our server was very helpful. Great beer and food selection. The food was all right but lacked flavor. The beer on the other hand was very good. Overall a great place for beer, maybe not so much for food. We got some corked and caged 750ml to go. They also have some of the coolest tap handles Iíve seen.

Great brewpub atmosphere. Tin ceilings were interesting. Live music set up next to the tanks, which are in the front part of the restaurant. Prompt service and the beers were doing pretty well that night. Not every one was a winner, but they were all solid, for sure. Definitely the place to hang if in downtown Williamsport, and worth a stop if youíre in the region. This is more upscale and trendy than the Valley Inn (Abbey Wright) across the river.
