Another new beer bar that is doing it right. Was bummed when I got there on Sunday and it was closed but had a nice lunch and beer experience on Monday. The owners seem to be doing everything right despite facing a new and popular bar. Congrts, this is a greet place

The beer selection is excellent but the food selection is slim. Normally the food selection would be okay except that they make it the way they want to make it and are opposed to things as basic as asking for a rare steak (they make it "medium rare"...that is all). Wait staff is very pleasant though it seems like they are intimidated by the kitchen, which quite frankly sucks. My recommendation, drive the extra distance to go to downtown Phoenixville. If you really love the beer selection then drive the extra distance to go to Union Jack’s near Oley.

This a great beer place. Food is exceptional and the prices are reasonable. Tap list is to notch and bottle list impressive. Prices on bottles are a bit high, but this is a nice place and worth visiting often.

Stopped by for an early dinner on a Saturday night (got in right before it started to really get crowded). Is a small place. Menu was good, but rather limited. Not exactly family friendly, but they did have chicken tenders kid meal. Quality of food was very good - I had the burger and my wife has the scallops. Service was very good. Beer selection was great. Had about a dozen or so nice ones on taps and well over 100 bottles (to be enjoyed there or to take home). Will definitely hit this place again.

Nice looking, wood-filled bar. Good service. Nice selection of draughts and bottles. Reasonable prices, except for charges for bread and romulade. Burgers were great! Muscles are very good too.

The Craft Ale House has been around for 6 months now and the place keeps getting better and better. The owners Gary & Melissa are beer veterans and seem dedicated to making the CAH a great beer spot. They have brought in some great beers. The food is all made from scratch unlike many place in the suburbs. The burgers, Pork sandwich, chicken pot pie, chicken tenders are great. The fries are good but they seem to over salt a few things/sauces on the menu. My wife and I both love their soups. The bartenders are knowledgable and waiters & waitresses provide adequate explanations of the beers. The coolers hold a very nice selection of bottled beer. The bottle prices are a bit high for this part of Mont Co. but they do have the best beer bar in the area and can justify the prices. The tap selection is nice but perhaps a too local centric with the choices. However, with beers like Pliny the Elder and Younger, Blind Pig. Ballast Point Victory at Sea, Sculpin, Dorado, Navigator I can handle some PBC and Victory.

Stopped in to pick up a six pack - you can actually make your own assorted variety - a great option, especially in a state with archaic beer laws. Decent bottle and tap selection with a good looking menu. They do growlers as well. I’ll have to have a meal here and re-rate in the future.

This place could definitely become a regular stop for me. What a selection of beer on draft the night I was there. For a small example, they were offering Old Rasputin Impy Stout, Twin Lakes Pale Ale, Stoudts’ Double IPA and Founders Centenial IPA. Plus they had about ten or so other selections. The only bad thing I can say about the Craft Ale House is the lack of selection on the food menu. They had some nice appetizers, a few selections of mussels, a burger, pork sandwich and a few higher end entrees. But that was about it. Not a whole lot of food selection. But the burger and pork sandwich were quite delicious, though. The artisan cheese tray was quite nice, as well. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. The service was pretty good, especially for a very busy Friday night. They told us it was going to be about a half-hour wait, but it was only about 20 minutes. The servers didn’t try and rush you to eat and get out, like at a lot of other places. The atmosphere was of a smallish pub,

Stopped by on a Monday around 2pm....needless to say, not busy. Smaller inside. 5 people at the bar. Nice selection of beer (one, if I were a little closer, I would come for more often). They offer free, small samples, of anything, which is very nice. Only complaint, is I had to ask for my water 4 times. 1st time, he must of forgot. Second time, I watched him fill a glass up and then drink it himself. 3rd time, he filled up a glass and gave it to the lady next to me. 4th time, he got it right...I guess he really didn’t care about me! Other than taking a while and repeatedly asking for a water with my beer, the service was good. I’ll probably stop by here again and update... Update...much better serive this time around! Ordered food too. Limited menu, but the fish and chips were good.

Very nice place. The interior is cozy, nicely decorated, but a bit small, with a 12 seater bar and roughly 50 person seated dining capacity. The food is out of this world. The burgers melt in your mouth, the homemade seasoned fries are the best I have ever had, the pierogies are astounding, and the soups are great. Everything my wife and I have eaten here has been spot on. The tap selection is 16 strong, and includes a lot of great local stuff, relative rarities like Pliny the Elder, and a smattering of Belgian and dark beers. There are always two or three solid IPAs, 2 or 3 solid Belgians, and 2 or 3 solid stouts on. Service has ranged from initially slow to much better lately. Value is above average, and the takeout beer coolers are stocked with a great deal of awesome stuff. Gary (the owner) has been around the beer business for most of his life, and it shows in this place. I highly recommend Craft Ale House to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
