I stopped by the pub and restaurant with my brothers and sister in law and we had a great time in each section. We had a few beers in the pub which is the most unique pub I have ever been. It felt like we were 40 feet underground in the cellar, and the ambiance down there was fantastic, all stone walls and an arched ceiling. There was a mystique about it that just made it even better. The beers were alright, the brown and cream ales being the best, and the Festival and ISB were just mediocre. We had dinner at night and the entire room was lit only by candle light which I enjoyed. I had the beef in Guinness and it was very tasty along with the cheddar and ale soup. Later on when we went back to the pub they had an Irish band playing and they sounded very good, playing traditional Irish music. I highly recommend going there if you are in Weston (which was a beautiful little town)

The new ginger beer is fantastic, more like an alcoholic soda pop really. love the stout. But I come for the atmosphere and music as I love the Irish music.

Been here twice for two different fests at the brewery. Its kind of nice in a dirty kind of way. Very old and dingy but has a nice feel to it. Food was decent but fits the motif, very Irish but in the mid West. They have a lot of Weston beers and often one or two that are new or not bottled. I would visit again bc the town is kind of cool and the place adds to the charm. Very charmy.

Stopped by on a Saturday late afternoon. Just looked in on the Pub, which is interesting. Dined at the restaurant, food was well above average. Service was good and they were willing to bring a few samples our way. Beer quality is average, but this place is still worth a visit.

I wanted to like this place: an underground brewpub in an unassuming old building across the river from Leavenworth. However, the underground bar smelled strongly of stale piss, which really just killed the ambiance, and left the mediocre out door patio as the other decent place to drink. The beer was for the most part about average - placing it slightly above the service. Unless you’re already in the area, it’s not really worth the drive.

An awesome place to visit. We took the paid tour and viewed the brewery and the underground rooms. We had the sampler of their six beers, nothing to brag about, but you are here for the atmosphere. One of the oldest brewies still around, so enjoy the time spent here, it is well worth it. Our tour guide was one of the owners, and he answered every question thrown at him, good job. Would visit again.

You DO NOT come here for the beer, but you do for the atmosphere. Well, if others want this as a place, I guess so. It’s not a brewpub, it just happens to be the bar that is located below the ground level brewery. Their beers are bottled and also on tap at multiple KC area bars. Weston is a fun little tourist trap town and the little McCormick’s store is worth a stop for the quarter shots. That said, this my favorite bar ever for the atmosphere and entertainment. I have seen the great Bob Reeder here several times as well as the Kelihans and other Celtic punk acts. I keep returning time and again. The worst thing about being here is climbing all the steps to hit the bathroom. Again, do not come here expecting good beer as the Weston Brewing beers are merely passable to below average. However, if you want great live music and an incredible atmosphere, come here.

The Weston Brewing Company, O’Malleys Pub and a restaurant are all part of this same complex. The restaurant and Brewery are at ground level, O’Malley’s pub is downstairs. You can sample the O’Malleys beers either in the pub or the restaurant. The pub itself is really unique, its an underground cellar which has been converted to a pub. Its really an incredible sight to see, and well worth the visit. Not sure if the beer warrants the trip, but you will be happy to experience the cellar. NOTE - I believe it opens at 3 or 4 in the afternoon. The restaurant at ground level has a nice outdoor patio for warm days.
64 = ★★ (Just ok)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Notes from Feb. ’07 - Visited on a Friday afternoon for lunch. The place looked like a very old restaurant (which it probably is) that was located in the same building as the Weston Brewing Company. We sat in the main dining area. The place wasn’t crowded, and our service was good. They only had one beer on tap, O’Malley’s Cream Ale, and it was good. The food was pretty solid. If in Weston antiquing or whatever you’d do in Weston, I’d recommend stopping by for a good beer and really good food.
