The Merchant Ale House is a decent brewpub. None of their beers are outstanding, but they have a fairly good selection and quite a few guest taps. The service is friendly and efficient, but the waitstaff is not overly beer-knowledgeable. The food is typical roadhouse/pub fare--edible & none offensive. The atmosphere is quite nice--somewhat rustic and very much a beer hall.

NIce, somewhat older and gritty feel. Service was adequate, if not incredibly knowledgable. The house beer sampler came with quite large samples, about 4-5 oz. per beer. Food was pretty good, they like to use onions, thats for sure. The beer was decent and they have a handful of guest taps and one cask available as well. Not far from the border at all. Iíll be back.

If you are in the Niagara Falls area, this is worth a stop. Before it gets dark, as its in a depressed tough blue collar town, considered the worst spot in Canada. The bar is very nice, with seasonals that have a good reputation. I lucked into the IPA. The food and the beer is cheap, parking is very easy, and service is tremendous. Some of the dishes were made with beer. John the owner and brewmaster is committed . There were about 12 guest taps, a good selection of what he can get, as he knows his craft beer. There was good variety.

This is an oasis in Brock town, good knowledgeable folks behind the bar and I've always enjoyed at least a couple of their brews (it's been a while, but I recall enjoying the old thyme hockey ale and the stout, my buddy liked the pumpkin ale, I hated it, but then again, I hate pumpkins!). Didn't try the food, dark atmosphere conducive to conversation.

Casual brewpub/beer bar is an oasis in St. Kitts. Decent all round, worth a stop if you're in the neighbourhood.
