Iíve been here about a dozen times since itís opening , though Iíve bene about 8 times within the last 4 months. Really love this place, canít say enough about how great it ties into downtown, great river view from the deck, inside is old world converted manufactoring mill with lots of wood and cool fixtures. Food is always solid and goes beyond traditional pub fare. Beer has always been great even though theyíve had three brewers in the past 3 years..that said all 3 brewers are fantasic in their own right.Great place, wish I lived closer.

Iíve been here twice. about a year apart. Located in downtown area lots of classic industrail northeast mill buildings around. A short walk from the Haverhill commuter rail station. Nice interior, Bar is darkwood and brick with some murals on walls of local/nautical scenes. Seperate dining area has dark wood panels. Seperate function room downstairs. Black & white tile floor and seperate bar area. Nice deck in the back that overlooks the Merrimack river. Tap handles all are old shoe molds. Both times Iíve sat at the bar. Service was good both times. Beers when I visited lat time were The Haverale
Leather Lips ipa
Doublelips Imperial I.P.A.
Oatmeal stout . Iíve just had burgers when Iíve been there, theyíve been good both times. Worth a visit if oyuíre in the area.

Located in downtown haverhill on the main drag, this brewpub stood out in my mind because of the deck in the back. Huge deck, overlooking the Merrimack river. Although I was there at night, I am thinking it would be a great place to get a drink and sit outside on a nice warm day. The inside is nice with exposed brick, and seemed to have an English theme(the decor, not beer). Beer ranged from average to exceptional, the best being the Leatherlips IPA in my opinion. Bartender was very friendly and was very knowledgable about beer. Would go back if I was passing through.

Beautiful location. The food was excellent along with the beer. The beer selection was limited to the 8 locally brewed on tap.

Big room with high ceiling, has both the fire station and the new england feel. Another brewpub that easily as much a restaurant than a beer establishment, though the decoration lets you know the latter is important. Good beers globally, though they would have passed unnoticed without the IPA which seems to be a regular in their lineup. Iíd definitely be interested to return when they have other seasonals. Weak, slow, uncaring service on that particular evening.

Nice place, warm, welcoming English-y ambiance in an old building in downtown Haverhill. I visited with MartinT, Rastacouere, tiggmtl so Iím not going to repeat their comments about the poor service...I agree that the food is excellent and the beers interesting, if not 100% successful. Definitely a place worthy of revisiting.

Warm, wood panelled restaurant with a long bar and good views into the brewery/fermentation rooms with clean bathrooms. Beer quality ranged from fair to excellent but all were worth a try. Food was excellent. Only problem was the slow and forgetful, albeit friendly service from our server and the barmaid that served an incorrect beer (nitro stout - should have been a cask brown ale) and refused to exchange it saying that we were mistaken...

Above average restaurant food in a casual but refined atmosphere in downtown Haverhill. Beers are all very well-brewed, the Leatherlips IPA standing out amongst the crowd as a world-class IPA. Overall an above average brewpub experience, certainly one of the best in Massachusetts. The terrace out back must be wonderful in the heat of summer even though there is a parking lot between it and the river.

Very cool cobbler theme to the whole place, clean, good service, good food, and good beer. Great/unique selection of some more non-traditional styles. More than just your typical IPA/Amber/Pale/Porter brewpub. Cool location, and a historic town to boot. Excited to try some cask offerings on Friday night.

They donít get any better than this ! The beers brewed onsite are served from the maturation tanks and are amazing, In my opinion the people from Cologne Germany would like this bar as the beers are Fresh &; and tasty. Food is great, the service and friendliness unmatched. They should have their Altbeer on now and it was a super sample when I tried it a couple of weeks ago, albeit not entirely ready, but the brewer offered me a taste, just because I had seen its label on the maturation vessel when I headed for the return station.
Location is oposite the T Station, accesible from Boston North Station.
