I havenít been to this place in years (used to live in Malvern). First off, the place has a solid atmosphere, especially in the summer. Nice outdoor seating, nice big bar both indoor and outdoor. The service at the bar was solid. The bartender was amusing, friendly, poured the beers quickly and appropriately. Outside, the service left something to be desired. There was four of us in the party. My wife and I are beer drinkers. One of our friends was drinking Martiniís for happy hour and one other friend doesnít drink. The waitress was fairly unfriendly the entire night. My wife asked for an ABV on beer because it wasnít listed on the menu like the other beers. This girl copped an attitude. She basically ignored the non-beer drinkers all night. Blended score is pulled up by the bartender. Selection was good. They had a pale ale, IPA, Wit, stout, saison, light lager, and a few others. We forgot the take home barrel aged sour. We have to stop back for that. Food was OK. Decent wings, flatbread was fine, chips and salsa were iffy, lettuce wraps were pretty good. Happy hour prices were very good.

Another suburb Philly place really worth the detour. Wonderful place to hang-out during the summer with a great outdoor patio. Large interior, clean upscale pub type of feeling. We didnít eat there but I hear the food is decent pub food. Solid tap selection (6 to 8 I think) an the quality was definitely above average. But this place gets even better with their 750ml house beers, a bit expensive, most are pretty experimental crazy stuff that can be hit or miss but mostly hits. A Family friendly pub that will satisfy the most avid beer geek of all beer hunters. I wanna go back there. Win.

Ambiance is interesting where as the inside is pretty standard, but the outside deck bar is freaking awesome in the summer time. Service was pretty good considering we completetly flooded the bar with people. Selectionw as decent, probably about 12 of there beers on tap, several which were pretty solid. Food was very very good, ans was priced, with the beer, farily. Overall, worth the stop if you;re in the area.

Bus stop for RBSG 2011. Very empty, spacious location. Circular bar in the center- a little odd. Some nice patio/deck seating outside. You can order tasting flights. House beers were on the low end side- mostly soapy and astringent with other off flavors. Rather unimpressive. Food is available but we were here a little early for lunch.

Several visits. Austere interior, typically pretty dead, spacious room and hanging TVs leave it feeling more like a spaceship than a bar.. Samplers have ranged from poor to decent, often 2-3 weak beers per entry, and often very few seasonals. The wraps were excellent though, and prices are pretty considerate. Service quick and polite.

Another stop on the RBSG 2011 bus trip. This place was great. They had an excellent tap list, and it happened to be a bottle release day. Service was pretty swift for having to deal with a bus load of people all at once. We sat at the bar and ordered a few things to eat and a few samplers. Prices were incredibly good. Certainly worth visiting.

I was not feeling this place at all. They had 6 typical beers on tap and 2-3 seasonals and I wasnít knocked out by any of them. The bar area is real close to the door. They also have an outdoor area as well as some sort of basement bar, but when the beer is this mediocre why does it matter?

If McKenzie werenít a brewery, Iíd probably really like it. The inside is nice, but not the type of atmosphere I want at a brewery. They focus a lot on other alcoholic drinks which doesnít make any sense to me since they make beer! The house beers are okay but their seasonals are pretty decent. Iíve been there a few times and none of the servers seem to know anything about beer. The food is good, but a little overpriced. The crowd isnít a beer crowd.

The place itself is kinda a mix. I like the high ceilings and lighting around the bar, but the dining area is real cheap and mid-90s sports bar-ish. I do like that you can see the kitchen. Ive read complaints about the service but ours was pretty good. The waitress didnt seem to know what she was doing, but everything arrived correct, on time, and hot. The standard brews were pretty boring, but the seasonals were delicious. The food was also very tasty and not too expensive. The beers and food make it worth the trip.
