A nice brewpub located across from a train station. The beers are solid and the cask a welcome change. The carrot cake is an old family recipe and worthy of consumption. There is a fair amount of old breweriana throughout the bar area for your loitering pleasure.

Conveniently right off the Woodbridge train station. Old rustic feel. Burger was good and priced reasonable. Had the beer sampler. 7 beers for $10. Beers were average, but worth a try. Def worth a stop if your in the area.

A surprisingly decent brewpub near the train station in Woodbridge. They serve free chips and salsa (otherwise I didnít try any other food). The beer was more interesting and tasty than expected - I tried an oak aged cherry chocolate stout and cask IPA which were excellent, and a Belgian ale which was ok. Worth a stop for the beer.

Standard brewpub in Woodbridge. Typical brewpub beers. Food is better than average. Friendly staff and service. Nice place as there arenít a lot of good brewpubs in the area.

Nice interior, large square bar with an open balcony overhead. Large attached restaurnt, but pretty empty just after 2 on a Friday afternoon. Six beers and a cask, all were OK. Plentiful parking, and a train out front. Worth a stop.

My first place rating as it should be. I grew up in the this place. I love the old brick building. I drove past it daily in my childhood when it was just a carcass, wondering what was in there. Then beer was in there! They have been through a handful of brewers but I think the beer is at a peak. The Rat Pack Pilsner, WHALES IPA, Best Bitter, and Bad Boy Oktoberfest are some of the notables. The hand pump is great. The food is hit or miss. The fajitas are really good and make the bar patrons drool as the come out of the kitchen, sizzling on their way to the dining room. There is always a friendly crowd. Join them!

Decent enough brewpub a little off the beaten track (if thatís possile in NJ...LOL!). The place is in a really nice old brick building...the wood floors are especially nice. The food is pretty good for a brewpub. If anything the beers could be better. Donít get me wrong...as I said...theyíre decent enough...and worth a visit...just not great. Youíll enjoy them...but you wonít remember them the next day.

Happy Hour alone is worth a trip! And you can take NJ Transit trains there!

Parking is decently easy to come by hear given the proximity to the train, and at $3 for the day I guess isnít so bad, especially if you plan on staying more than a couple hours. Inside thereís a lot of nice open exposed brickwork on the walls and by the bar it goes up to a second level providing some natural light. Bar crowd here is interesting. Lots of locals, and a good amount of mixed drinks on the bar around me, even before five on a Thursday. Interestingly, they have free food (up to $13) in the dining room if itís your birthday, and it was my birthday when I was here, but I didnít feel like relocating (or mentioning that it was my birthday). But good to know for the rest of you Iím quite sure. Looks like they may have a fairly standard list of beers. When I was here they featured a wheat beer, golden, amber, IPA, dunkel-weizen, stout, and a fruit wheat. Sampler of all seven was $10. The beers were a tiny bit above the curve for the standard brewpub beers, but nothing blew me away. Free chips and salsa however Ė thass nice. Mmhmm. Not sure why, but my pint of IPA after my sampler was a scant $2.50. Happy hour perhaps? Certainly ups the value quotient.

Nice old building. Brewery in the center of the place.visited on a monday during lunch so i cant say much about ambiance. had the ipa and it was well made but not extraordinary. food was good. Would definitely return especially in the summer to enjoy the patio.
