This was a nice spot with large bar and plenty of seating. Thereís upstairs seating as well but we didnít take a look so no idea how roomy it is up there. One gripe was a lack of lighting so prepare to bring your own flashlight :) The beers were fine and with a moderate range of styles. Flights available but on the pricey side. Service was slow to begin with as there was only one bartender working behind the bar but smoothed out once another staff member came to help out. We didnít eat on our visit.

This is an interesting old building on the outskirts of town. The restaurant is in the basement, allowing you a look at the underworks holding the building up. But that also makes it a bit dark. Large U-shaped bar on one side, restaurant tables on the other. Service was slow, as one guy was covering a massive bar by himself. Beers were fine.Worth a peek.

Upscale brewpub in an old (and very beautifully refurbished) dairy barn. Lots of windows to the outside, as well as in on the brewroom floor. Pub-style downstairs, and nice dining room upstairs. Beer and food are both really solid, but it is pricy - $12 for a 6 beer sampler??? Ouch.

2014-08-16. Arrived for lunch and saw a bunch of our fellow Campground Brewdowners heading in, but then didnít see them when we got inside. It wasnít until later that I clued into the fact that there is an upstairs, which is apparently "fancier" than the downstairs where we were sitting. The bottom floor is large on itís own so if the top floor is similarly sized there is plenty of seating capacity. The downstairs had a lounge meets barn meets bar feel too it that feels a bit odd, but is pretty cool. They need a few more lights since reading the menu and identifying the colour of our beers were both challenging :) Servers were friendly and efficient, we didnít really test their beer knowledge. One waitress accurately gauged the mood of the group and brought out crayons to one of the guys who had been joking about it! They do flights of six beers, which Mabel and I shared since we werenít feeling up for more today. We similarly opted to order "light" on the food with an onion soup, and short rib nachos, both of which were twice the size we expected. The nachos were delicious, with sort of a philly cheese steak like cheese sauce on them. The soup was similarly good. Iím curious what the portion sizes are like for the fancier looking entrees since we split two appetizers and left super full! The option for a small and a large for those items would have been nice. The entrees are not expensive per se, but are on the fancy side for brewpub fare and seem to be priced accordingly. Beers were all pretty decent but only one or two really caught my attention today. Location by the highway is handy if you are just passing through. Definitely worth a stop, and we would come back again.

Really cool place to eat - an old barn refurbed as a brewpub. Great open areas and high ceilings, nice decor, and the basement bar was just beautiful. Had lunch on a Monday, and they were doing a good business. Three of seven beers on menu werenít available, but they have a few guest taps, too. Solid offerings, particularly the Tailgater. Food was really good, and their pretzels are the best German-style soft pretzels Iíve had since living in Germany ... they make the Hofbrauhaus (Pitt) pretzels look like microwaveable cardboard. Good service. Lunch and dinner items are on the steep side for a brewpub, so not an every-day place to hang out, but the food is good.
