First time I had even heard of this place was when Deuane said we were going here. I am always down to try a new place so away we went. When we pulled up I thought we had made a wrong turn and we were turning around. Tucked into quite a few storefronts in a large strip mall is Stewartís Brewing Co. The atmosphere is pretty good with a few people milling around. The quality seemed to be pretty good. Our beers were all server in the correct glasses and while I didnít try any food I was told by a few different people that it is pretty good. Prices seemed to be on par with most of the other places we stopped so no biggie there. The service was pretty good. Our bartender was very nice and knew quite a bit about their beers. The selection was good. They had a few new beers, most notably the smoked pumpkin porter, that I enjoyed trying. I got a full glass of the Wind Blown Blonde Kolsch and it was very good. I saw they had one cask line as well. Overall I enjoyed this place. If I am ever in the area again I will stop by again for sure.

Visited: 3/24/14 and 3/27/14.
Ambiance: It seemed liked a typical boring resteraunt. If it wasnít for the brewing equipment in a small room in the back corner, you wouldnít notice that this place was a brewpub.
Service: The bartenders were decent, knowledgeable about their beers and attentive.
Selection: They had 10 different in house beers on tap which covered the basic beer gambit (wheat, kolsch, porter, stout, IPA, pale, etc)
Food: I ate when I went there both times and was unimpressed by the quality of the food. The bar food was very basic and bland...the cheese platter was basic cheeses with bulk section dried fruits and my meal was boring.
Value: The prices were okay on the beers and food, they definitely didnít rape you but for the quality of the food and beers, I have definitely gotten more for less in many other places.
Overall, if it wasnít for them having their 2011 barrel aged barleywine on tap, I would have really hated this place. I wouldnít go back though as there was really nothing there to go back to.

Visited later on a Sunday night. Located in a large strip mall, design is open, with a large U shaped bar and restaurant seating on either side. A bunch of TVís and fairly loud 80s R&B music playing. 11 house beers were on offer, for sale by the glass or in a 4 or 8 beer sampler. Food was served late, and was fairly straightforward pub fare. Service was prompt, knowledgeable and welcoming. I had a bowl of soup, and the Pilsner and Smoked Wheat. All were solid quality. I enjoyed my visit.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

3rd stop on 2013 PA/DE brewery tour with Mike.
In a strip mall, open space. Didnít have the food but the beers were pretty solid. Server helped pick some good brews for tasting. Was quiet on a Monday afternoon but that was fine by us.

Was at Stewarts the day it opened and continue to return. The beers are good, some bordering on great. Food is very good and consistent. Servers tend to be either very good or not so good. Iím very glad that Stewarts stays true to itself and continues to put out nice drinkable beers. Itís a nice brewpub that survived in an area that no one thought it would.

Stewarts has a smaller selection of brews then lets say iron hill, but the brews never tend to disappoint. The pricing is really good as well. The service fine, though I find the staff less knowledgeable on beers then some other places Iíve been. The food is OK, nothing ever wowed me when I ate there. The plus side is the place large enough to never have to worry about seating. I would say grab a beer here, highlander stout is always a good choice!

Stewarts is always a nice stop. Pretty good food, usually very good service, and they always have something new on tap. I should come here more often.

Newish modern place in a strip mall. Four seasonals plus a regular line up. Beers were decent enough, nothing stellar but nothing bad. Food was tasty. Bartender was a riot. Worth the five minute detour from I-95.

This place is tucked in a strip mall and has the feel of a bingo hall. The restaurant is very open and thus, noisy. Our server was not very attentive, and I cannot say that I saw anyone getting great attention, except for the waitress who kept going over to the bar to kiss her boyfriend. The beer was hit or miss, but the cask coffee stout was pretty good. I had the beer queso and it was good. The prices are very good.
