Every fall, this place makes a great pumpkin ale thatís just amazing. They also make an above average honey wheat beer and a truly awesome coffee and cream stout.
The overall value of this place, in my book, goes down for two reasons: they jack up their prices because theyíre in a touristy area, and their menu selections arenít always complementary to a good beer.
I like Triumph beers, but the Triumph down in Philly has a much better ambiance and menu.
We sat outside and enjoyed a tasty Simcoe IPA. Food was ok. Wasnít really interested in the food as I was the beer. Seemed to be a pretty low key place, not over the top fancy but not a dive, right in the middle with lots of open space inside. It was quiet so not sure how the place holds up if it gets busy.
Iíd take this over the Princeton Triumph. I think the beer is a little better. The menuís small, but good and they can whip something weird up no problem if you ask. Anyway, thereís much better beer right across the river; but if youíre in New Hope, you have to stop.
Stopped in on a saturday afternoon after reading about the place. The bartender was really attentive and had good suggestions regarding the menu. I ordered the sampler, and he was also cool enough not to give the old "roll of the eyes" for having to put it together. I picked up 2 growlers of the Bengal IPA to take back home. Good stop. Reccomended.
Good beer, decent service, great happy hour prices, and itís nice and clean. Didnít even look at a menu, so they get an "N/A" in that dept. Unfortunately, on the day I was there, they only had 4 beers (two flavored wheats, and two lagers) so I canít give them much in the "selection" category, but Iím really hoping it was an off day?

Visited on a very very cold Saturday afternoon with willblake and dickinsonbeer. Located in a shopping area that is clean and attractive. The interior is quite expansive with lots of brick and open space. Service was just average from the bartender but would not sway me either way about visiting again. Seven house beers on draft with about 3 of them being staples and the other four rotating. The tap list seems to be updated on the website on a fairly regular basis and everything listed was available on the day of my visit. The Oatmeal Cookie Stout was simply awesome and I would drive there again simply to drink more of this fantastic creation. Food was good and is more imaginative and of a higher quality then your standard burger and wings. This place looks like it could be real lively on weekend nights and I wish it was closer then an hour and a half from my house.

IT HAS A MODERN LOOK WITH A COUNTRY ATTITUDE. THE BARTENDER WAS VERY ATTENTIVE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND THERE WAS A DECENT SIZE MENU. THEY ONLY SELL THERE BEERS AND ONLY USUALLY HAVE ABOUT SEVEN DR AUGHTS AVAILABLE. I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED A MORE EXTENSIVE SELECTION. THEY DO NOT BOTTLE THERE BEERS BUT BRING A GROWLER AND THEY WILL FILL IT FOR A $ 12 FEE.
Great Beer. One of the best Jersey brewers. It is worth going for a drink and a meal. The menu is quite small, though. Do not expect amazing things in that department. Itís not worth a long drive, but stop by if youíre in the New Hope area.
Somewhat pricey, but very good experience ambiance wise. Food was outrageous. Beer actually was the weakest part of the visit and I don’t mean that in a bad way. The beers are better than average it’s just that I’ve had better
stopped by on beer tour, 09/01/08. Very nice facility, and I was eager to try thier products. Waited about 15 minutes to be seated at a table (we were told there would be a wait), placed my order for a sampler (iced tea for the wife) and sweet potato fries. Fries and tea came very promptly...beer took about 20 minutes, which seems excessive. Prices also seemed excessive, as fries were $4.00, a new york strip was $24.00 (didnít mention size) and other items were priced in a similar manner. Beer sampler finally came, and was for the most part well done. My only complaint was concerning the Jewish Rye beer which has to be an acquired taste...and I am loath to acquire it! Still, given the slow service and high priced food, it is not a place I would return. Hopefully they package thier excellent beer in bottles and market it in my area.
Stopped in for a sampler and growler fill the other day and was told that theyíll only fill Triumph growlers for Legal reasons. What a joke. If a place is down to trying to make mney on growler sales you can guess how long theyíll be in business. On other trips here the beer is ok, decent IPA, other than that itís about what you expect from a chain. Food prices are insane.
