Stopped in here as a bonus to the Cooperstown Beverage Trail. It looks big on the outside, but is actually very small inside. We sat the bar. They have 9 of their beers on tap plus a guest tap, but it cost us $17 just to get a flight of all of them. That wouldn’t have been so bad but the majority of the beers reeked of diacetyl, some seemed soured or off a dirty tap. I wouldn’t expect that from a brewpub.
Barmaid was friendly, service was fairly quick. Food was good. The garlic pesto fries were great.
A decent value, but those hoping for great beer will be disappointed.

Great food and service. Small menu with 6 beers on tap. Beers were all solid. Server was friendly, prompt, and helpful. As noted in an earlier rating, no growlers. The only drawback. Would have loved to share that scotch ale with some ratebeer friends.

I stopped in during a recent visit to Cooperstown. They had six beers on tap although they have twelve tap handles. The food menu has about eight items on the menu, and I was told they were out of two of the items. I had a bratwurst sandwich which was good. The people at the brewery are very friendly and happy to talk with you about beer, which was the highlight of my visit. I wanted to buy a filled growler to take with me, however they wouldn’t sell me one because they said they didn’t have enough beer to do that. I really think they need to work on their business plan. With such a short menu to be out of two items and not have enough beer on hand to be able to sell a growler to customer is pretty sad. Like I said earlier, they are nice people and I hope they are able to get their act together.

This small brewery knows what it’s doing. They have a German Light Ale with the cleanest Noble hop character I’ve tasted from a brewery of this size. Add to this the friendly brewmaster (Roger), good food, and a hotel within stumbling distance, and you’ve got an answer for what to do with the rest of the day after your visit to the Baseball Hall of Fame.
