Great atmosphere. Service was friendly, yet slow. Understaffed, I think is the correct word. The beers are all original, but they could be higher quality. They served me a "cask porter" which the server did not know the name of. The food was delicious.

Beautiful bar, great proper boozer feeling to it, but there is just something that stops it being a truly great place to go for a beer - although their beer is generally good (a little too much reliance on Cascade for my tastes having said that). It is definitely a better place later on in the evening when the "family friendly" crowd have taken their screaming precious darlings home.

Located near the downtown mall and just in front of train tracks .... parked in a pay lot across the street ..... nice ambiance old brick building with wooden ceilings ... old basement tavern feel ... bar filled with young working adults .... nice seating area and the food was good ..... brews were average not a bad place to stop in

For the town it is in and location it is a great value. After one time easily a new favorite. A couple nice beers. THe food is also excellent from the appetizer the the flank steak dinner. The boot was huge i was able to enjoy sitting there with my food and drink.

Crowded and parking can be tricky. The beer ranges widely and can be quite interesting. The food is good when you can catch a server and are willing to wait on a slow kitchen. The sampler makes it worth it.

Good atmosphere, but doesnít open till 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday? Pretty empty when I was there at 6:00 on a Saturday evening. Sat down to have a sampler of beers and was pleased to find they had seven diverse beers on tap. The staff was friendly and semi knowledgeable. The beer was pretty dreadful. Watery and lacking any kind of depth or flavor all the way down the line. As I got toward the end, the bartender noticed that I was taking notes. She recommended that I check out Blue Ridge Brewery and noted that their former brewer moved over there taking some of the best recipes with him. Canít say I was impressed in the least.

Last stop on the www.jrhb.org 2008 Brews Cruise. I had their Satay with Tuna and it was delicious. Service was really slow, but it was a Saturday night so thatís to be expected. The headbrewer was awesome and gave a great tour. I actually learned a lot and he gave us HUGE samples of all his beers. Satanís Pony was my favorite beer they had on tap.

Friendly environment with a nice view of the brewery from behind the bar. Moderately well lit and fairly quiet before the evening crowd rolled in. Excellent food, appetizers are tasty and reasonably priced. The taco salad was filled with juicy steak. Staff was friendly and relatively knowlegable about the beer. Overall, a very nice place with an excellent sampler.

a popular place in charlottesville that has special on tuesday night which makes it a very crowded place that day. it has a wide selection of its own beers and the food is typical bar food: salty and fatty but goes well with beer.

I like this place. Iíve dropped in three times when passing through Charlottesville and had a good time on each occasion. It is in a downtown location in a nice old building. There are booths to sit at if you prefer that but Iíve always hung out at the bar and quickly been pulled into conversation with friendly locals. Twice I ended up not doing the more thorough survey of Charlottesville I had intended because of the convivial company in here. On one occasion service was a little slow because there was only one person serving who, as it is a very long bar, didnít always spot customers that needed a refiil if they were some distance away. Decent enough brewpub food. Six or seven of their own beers on tap, often with one on cask, and a guest or two. There are printed sheets telling you something about the beers. Beer quality is solid, if unspectacular. Sometimes has low key live music but Iím not sure of the schedule.
