I got a small order of nachos with my beer - they were killer and the serving size was enormous. Maybe because I was working an event there, and they take care of their own? Idunno. Iíll have to try them again some time when Iím just another customer. The beer is good, but you wonít find one single stellar brew in the whole place.

Itís a pretty amazing setting, thatís for sure. Youíre out in the valley they launch hot air balloons from not far away, and in the summer, you see them float overhead. Itís a craft beer success story in so many ways, and such a big one. And most of us feel pretty good about that, especially if weíre from here. But the bottom line is that the dining room isnít much removed from Dennyís level, and the beer is around that level by craft beer standards. The tour is cool ícause itís such a big operation, so do that if youíre in the area checking out wineries. But your time is definitely better spent elsewhere, checking out the people who are still doing it all the way right, albeit on a smaller scale.

This place was nice - it was onsite of a beautiful brewhouse, surrounded by woods (and a handful of local wineries). The service was attentive and decent, the selection was okay, the food was pretty decent (better than I was expecting), and overall I was happy with this as a destination. Given how big Redhook has gotten since they were acquired by Anheuser-Busch I was afraid that this would not be all that great. But the place was nice, the beers were quite tasty, and the food was good, too. Overall, a very nice place for a light dinner and a beer.

very nice selection of food and exclusive ales. service needs work, more food - less ítude, I know youre too cool for school but it doesnt need to come across everytime i need a refill. the sandwiches are great and reasonably priced for the quantity. only cold sides are available. trivia tuesdays are usually worth the trip there.

I love the set up here with the brewery and restaurant with the neo-whatever architecture (big metal green roof). Iíd have to agree with others, there is nothing wrong with the food it just isnít note worthy. And they really do under-staff this place. When its packed there is no one to seat you. So you must hope you can somehow wrangle a table if and when it appears you are next in line. You could end up getting skunked. The beer tour is really cool. The one I was on ended with a beer tasting. You could pretty much consume copious amounts free of charge. In the ďrestaurantĒ area there seems to be several beers on tap and one or two cask conditioned beer engine tapped beers. But Red Hook beers, for the most part, were designed to appeal to the masses. Most of their beers are pretty weak. There are just a couple to satisfy a beer geek like me.

The ambiance of this place is lacking. However, the beer garden is open during the summer months and can be a nice place to sit back and have a few with friends. The special events, such as weekly outdoor movies (July & August) is also a good touch. Food is getting better but donít expect much beyond a decent burger and fries. The beer is average.

Big, open, chain-looking place. You can get most of their beers somewhere else, and unless youíre a Redhook fan, Iíd skip

Never knew until this moment that there may have been more than 4 (IPA, Chinook, Sunrye, Porter) beers available. Those were the only four tasted on the tour or available in bottles.The short tour (that started late) was fast, friendly, and informal and consisted of brewer history and beer samples/info, Q&A, and viewing brewing operations from balconies. The beers were fresh and excellent, far superior to the bottled stuff we can get here in the Southeast. Correct serving temperature, too.
Big, cafeteria-like pub area. Appeared understaffed.
Print a coupon from the website for free tour and tasting glass. Also, have a good map, because the local roads are somewhat random and the brewery is invisible fro the street; there isnít even a sign until youíre actually in the driveway. Tour starts from the Forecaster Pub.

Top notch ambiance - a respite for the thirsty, also a beautiful drive from any angle. They always have 1-2 beers on cask, as well as a half dozen on draft. The cask IPA was excellent. Seems that most people there were frequenters. We stopped in quickly - but it would be easy to spend many hours here.
