Beer quality is really quite poor - weak and boring, but at least drinkable and not offensive. Food is at least quite good, with several vegan(izable) options. Prices are average (maybe a bit steep for the food). Service is friendly, but they don’t know anything about the beer. Not really worth a stop unless you want to tick some shitty beers.

Maybe it’s the lack of sunlight inside, but this place reminded me of the casino/brewpubs in Las Vegas; service is slow; 6 beers on tap of which 2 decent and 4 quite poor. They should really try to do an effort to up their beers...

The beer here is noteworthy for its lack of hops. The populist brewing approach means management does not want to alienate the Blue, Bud, and Kokanee drinkers. The only beer that I would want to order again is the Mill Creek Brownstone which was served in an impressive, heavy thistle glass. As Oakes mentioned, they are known for their Balti curries, which I recommend. If you like yours spicy, you have to ask for it. Too bad they don’t have any IPA to go with it. Lager just doesn’t cut it.

Connected to a loud, tacky bowling alley (complete with pumping dance music and flashing lights at 11am), Freddy’s Brewpub is home to the Mill Creek Brewery. The pub itself is pretty standard for Canada, but with less big brewery neon because they mostly sell their own product. If it wasn’t for the beer, there would be nothing exceptional. Fortunately, there are a couple of nice ones on tap. Subsequent revisits reveal little change. One thing of note - it is famous for it’s Friday Night Curries. On my most recent visit I arrived as the kitchen was closing so missed out on it but the samosas were very good so I’m still crossing my fingers about hitting Friday night curry sometime. That said, I’ve been here twice on a Friday and no curry for me.
