Nice place in central Oak Bluffs. Had about six to eight of their beers available on tap plus a handful more in bottles. The beers I had were all good, though none were great; they included a pale ale, IPA, DIPA, stout and hefeweizen. The place itself is nice, the servers are friendly and attentive, the prices are decent and you can get half pints (for slightly more than half the price of a pint). They also have free shelled peanuts, and when you open them you just toss the shells on the floor. Seems like this place is one of the only good beer spots in MV, so definitely worth a visit if youíre on the island.

The nautical decor of this quaint brewpub is interesting, and the atmosphere friendly and engaging. The flatbreads we had were very good and the various oysters on the menu looked very interesting indeed. The beer selection was rather typical with the blond, amber, red, brown, stout and company, but the 3 beers I had were all very well brewed and fun to drink. I just missed out on the Barley Wine and a stronger Belgian style, but then again it was understandable as it was the end of June. Overall, this was a pleasant brewpub experience.

This place is the coolest looking brewpub ever, with tons of nautical memorabilia and all the brewing equipment up behind the bar and the line. Good selection of options from Offshore. Also, six different varities of oysters on the half shell. Some day Iíll go back, get a pint of the Steeprock Stout and a good selection of oysters and enjoy myself when the place isnís so full that a dozen people have to stand behind the bar to get a drink.

Hey, I was just excited that "The Vineyard" had a brew pub at all. The beers are decent, not great, but not bad at all. I was really disappointed that they didnít have a sampler or flight of any kind, I mean what kind of brewpub doesnít offer a sampler in 2009? Crazy! Anyway, Iíd recommend the stout on nitro, I liked it better then the IPAs (my usual preference). Also, I think $3 for a glass (with purchase of a beer) is a pretty good deal, so I grabbed me one.

Went here while taking a break from exploring Marthaís Vineyard. Ambiance/atmosphere is very cool, with boats suspended in the rafters, a nice patio, and a bar with plenty of locals. It was slow, so service was quick. Selection is OK, they had most of their taps available. The value was good for oak bluffs, I thought prices were fair ($6/pint is standard). Overall Iíd go here again the next time Iím in oak bluffs, but I donít expect them to have anything new or interesting on tap.

It is nice to see that Marthaís Vineyard now has its own hometown brewpub, and one that is worthy of the place. I stopped by for a couple of brews and lunch before catching a ferry back to the mainland, and I was not disappointed. This is a comfortable. old wooden pub with high ceilings and rafters laden with nautical brickabrack. They had about 6-8 of their brews available on draft, and a couple in bottles. Growlers are available. The menu contains quality pub-grub, like fish and chips, pulled pork, and sausages. A barrel of salted peanuts is waiting for you by the door, and their hand-made potato crisps are well worth trying. I would be willing to stop in here for the food alone, which is not something I would say about many beer geek joints. And unlike one of my fellow raters, I have no complaints about the servers. I bet this place is good in the off-season too. Well worth a visit if you are on the island.

right off the main street of Oak Bluffs. The exterior has an old sea town look to it. Inside has a open layout with high ceilings, small bar and nautical decor. The beers are very nice. The waiters are some of the rudest people Iíve met. Somehow their island lifestyle is inconvenienced by customers. We had 3 different servers over the few days and they were all snots. Despite their best efforts to spread their misery to our table this is the best place in town to drink. Good food, fresh raw oysters, and a solid beer selection. Their wine list is pretty impressive as well.

This place is pretty cool for a brewpub on Marthaís vineyard. The service was good, the beer was good even if the selection is limited, and the food was good. Definitely worth going to if youíre on this island.

Right in the heart of the small business district, itís about 2 blocks from the ferry and just around the corner from bus stop/transfer point for the whole island. Welcoming exterior; warm, inviting interior. Friendly, attentive service. Lots of good choices on the menu, with an emphasis on pizza and seafood. Our selections were tasty and well presented. Choice of about 6 beers while we were there, including a well hopped IPA. The brewer stopped by to make sure we were being well taken care of. Can get very crowded, especially at night. Highly recommended.
