I went to Dark Horse for the 4Elf party. A rugged hole in the wall type vibe. My review is surely skewed as I did not see the normal pub experience. The absolutely freezing cold bottle share in the back while waiting in line all night was a fun time. Their organization for these types of events is basically non existent. Very scattered and random. Yet it all worked out as I got my BB Plead. The actually pub was cool yet very full and busy. Didnít stay in there too long as the main party was in the brewery with a ton of taps. Great beer comes out of this place. Will definitely be going back to get more BB Plead but hopefully they can pull together a better event act. I actually didnít get food really so I donít want to give it a rating. All in all a cool place and wouldnít mind going on a normal day to see what itís like.

Real funky íhomegrowní pub that is a cross between a frat house/art gallery/hippie pad. Had plenty of time to look around because service was almost non-existent. Place was busy, but far from having every table full. Lousy service doesnít work for me - DH if you want to be a great beer joint then get your shit together before you open the doors!

A place that has an atmosphere all itís own. Sort of a cool brewpub meets cool biker bar combo. Staff is friendly, food is good and the beer is awesome.

This place is a diamond in the rough and I do mean ROUGH. If you were to drive by this place you would think you were passing a lumber yard or something. They have a bar, carryout and homebrew store in separate buildings using one parking lot. The photo at the top is pretty representative of the complex. I didnít see the brewery.
The atmosphere inside the bar is good, consisting of some pretty funky tables and a good sized bar. There is a deck out back. The defining feature of this place has to be the 2000+ tan ceramic mugs hanging from virtually everywhere. They are owned by the "mug club" patrons who walk in and grab their mug off the ceiling or wall and get a fresh filled up. The taps are right up front and if you sit near them at the bar you can smell the hops and malt as it is poured into the glasses.
The beer ranged from good to very good and the selection was fair. They had 8 or 9 of their beers on tap. I tried them all since their samplers are quite reasonable. The Double Crooked Tree IPA and Reserve Black Bier Ale were both notable as was their Rye. Beer prices seemed pretty reasonable considering the quality of the product.
They had a good selection of pizza and sandwiches. The ones I tried were very good. Sandwiches are served on fresh French bread. The service is good to very good depending on the crowd. Both days I visited, it was crowded and it was understaffed but the waitress and cook did a good job keeping up. My glass was never empty! I will go back again particularly considering they are only 5 minutes off Route 94.
Beers sampled: Sampled Amber Ale, Rye, Raspberry Ale, Tres Blueberry Stout, IPA, Rye, Fore Smoked Stout, Porter, pint of Reserve Black Bier, snifter of Double Crooked Tree IPA

Went on last Saturday night. It was packed. Not a big place. Everyone seemed friendly. Waited a little while then got a spot at the bar. They have a limited menu on the weekends. Pizza and apps. We had the Margahrita Piazza. It was really good. Drank a couple brews, left and went to another place closer to home. Took a growler of Plead the 5th home.They have a huge patio but it was to chilly to sit out there. Besides there was no one else sitting out there. Iíll go back.

Drinking fresh beer at the Dark Horse brewpub was an amazing experience. The staff was fast and friendly, the food was delicious and inexpensive, and the atmosphere was truly unique. Itís not every day that you can drink world-class ales in a pub that has hundreds of ornate mugs decorating the walls and ceiling. If given the chance, I would certainly go back.

Happened to pop in on 4-Elf party day, so my experience may have been atypical. The first thing anyone notices is all the mugs hanging on the walls and ceiling - very cool. Selection was low for a brewpub (although I think the selection was insane in the 4-Elf party area). Tons of staff, but the food service was still ridiculously slow, and most were not very friendly or helpful. There may have been a bias towards "regulars". Value acceptable. Pizza was decent. The general store had a good selection of Dark Horse brews, at acceptable prices. I hope to stop by here again on a more normal day and see if I can have a better experience. The quality of the beer is worth it.
