Decent brewpub near Seton Hall. I used to go here frequently in college. College atmosphere with shuffleboard. A few decent guest taps. The beer used to have some quality control issues with the tap lines. Not sure if thatís been fixed. Iíd stop by if I was visiting someone from Seton Hall but wouldnít go out of my way.

A dated interior awaits just beyond the front doors. At first glance, it seemed no one at the bar was drinking house beers, but we ordered ours anyway. The beers were ok, and when we asked for their guest beers, a handwritten list came back with a few beers, one of which was "Stone". At any rate, the service was fine and the food good.

This was a very interesting place. The decor is stuck in the í80s, the food is plain but massive portions, very filling. Seemed like there were dozens of staff, so service is quick, even though it was our serverís first day on the job. The beers were not worth writing home about. Sampler flight seemed like an unknown thing, but they did kindly put one together for us. We asked for a list of their bottles/guest list, and after a while we were handed a hand-written list on a guest check. Overall worth a stop.

Visited May 2012.

Last stop of the day, and in New Jersey of all places. At first glance this isnít the nicest part of town but I didnít have any problems in the hour I was there. The restaurant has some small hop plants growing up the front of the building for decoration. Inside is a bar right in the middle of the room with a couple of large tvs scattered around the room. They were playing Rambo 4 on the tv which was awesome but it was also the television version which was a let down. What was also a letdown was the flight of house beers. They had a couple that were ok but most were not something I would drink again even if it was free. Across the bar was a couple, presumably on a first date that were fighting. It was both funny and sad to see. He was both angry and dumpy looking. The nachos were decent. Rambo and nachos are a good combination but I could use some better beer.

One of the earlier brewpubs and beer bars in north Jersey. Decent enough place...just good enough to be worth a special trip...but not great enough to return to very often. The place...service...and selections are a bit eclectic...not quite the norm...sometimes thstís good and they hit a home run with an unusual beer or food offering...sometimes itís just a miss though. One nice thing is that the place is in walking distance to the train station...thatís always handy.

Fairly decent little brew pub. Own beers were good, if not brilliant, but well priced. Reasonable guest range, and even a handpump. Well worth a slight detour to visit.

Great selection in bottles and draft. The beers that they make are pretty good as well, I like their winter offerings better than the summer ones. The food complements the beers fairly well and the atmosphere is nice and welcoming.

Stopped in here in the early afternoon on a Saturday. For a while it was us, another couple, a guy reading a book, and the bartender. At least in the bar. The dining area seemed to be doing brisk business. The atmosphere was quite nice, with a great view of the brew area, which was actually in use while we were there. Got to watch a hop addition, and some other stuff. We had eaten lunch prior to coming, and were having dinner elsewhere shortly after, so only got a mozzarella plate, but it was excellent. Beer sampler was reasonably priced. Beers were nothing amazing, but still decent. Overall a nice place and one I would love to swap with the brewpub up the street from me.

A pretty solid brewery. They had quite a few options on draft, and some non-standard brewpub choices, which is always nice. The beers were solid, not overwhelmingly good, but solid for sure. I liked the food as well. Lots of options, from steaks, to pasta, to seafood, to German style food, to deli, there was something on there for just about anyone. Our server was nice enough, though he didnít seem overly knowledgeable about the beer. We went their for dinner, and sat at a table, not the bar, and I had no idea they had anything on cask or any guest beers. The menu only listed their own stuff, and didnít even mention which ones were available and which were not, I had to ask the waiter for that information. Nice place, but that part was pretty annoying.
