Braudog  (753) Glenville, Pennsylvania | April 8, 2008| Updated April 9, 2008
April 2008 - I drove 75 minutes to get here, and I must say, I was a bit let down. What I discovered is a massive compound of commercialism, complete with a gaudy overpriced gift shop. The tour is a self-guided walk above their impressive brewhouse, complete with gigantic Euro-style copper kettles in an open-air sudhaus. The connected restaurant is just another wanna-be-upscale restaurant/pub that happens to serve the entire collection of SN regulars, plus a couple you might not find elsewhere (although all the beers were quite centerist and unadventurous). The food was good enough, if unoriginal. The service in the restaurant was indifferent at best, as if they could care less. All the staff seemed more interested in flirting amongst themselves than with keeping my beer glass full. Worth a stop if youíre in the neighborhood, but Iíd put this in my files along with other íoriginalí craft breweries that are now nothing short of Busch Juniors (see Pyramid, Portland, Big Rock, et al) and wonít go out of my way again. (Brewery #454, 4/8/2008)

I always stop in when Iím in town. The food is great. The beer is great. They usually have a one-off or two on tap. Very nice vibe and the service is great.

Very nice room with lots of wood and lots of copper (bartop, taps, even the air conditioning duct). Nice view of one of the brewing rooms from the waiting area. Food was good, especially the gorgonzola pasta my wife ordered. Beer sampler contained every beer they served on draft, 14 total the night I went (very nice!)

Downer: lack of cask ale - at least in my experience. Upper: great selection of ale and the food is first rate.

Bartzilla  (13) La Mesa, California | December 24, 2006
Pretty impressed, even if Iím not entirely a huge fan of their beers. The place is beautiful, though the bar should be bigger. Our waitress was spot-on, not having to write down anything we wanted for an order of 5, including beers and food and 5 other tables to boot. Service was fast, the food was good and the 15 beer sample platter was pretty fun to rip through. Got to have a glass of BA Bigfoot, which was the real treat of the day. Nice gift shop and quick brewery tour. Recommended, even if not a big fan of the beers. Iíll definitely return when back in the area. Also notable is that youíll get to try several of their offerings you wonít try in any other pub or store.

Good selection of beers. Excellent, outdoor beer garden complete with overhead "misting" system for hot, desert days. Nice gift shop. Good appetizers. Iím not a big fan of their beers, but they must have had twelve or more on tap when I visited.
