Nice little brewpub/restaurant in a small shopping center in cute and popular New Hope village. Service was very courteous and could answer beer-related questions. Beers were somewhat of a disappointment, even the imperial stout. Everything was well-made though, just nothing spectacular in the lineup we had that day. The brick walls decorated with paintings in the room adjoining the high-ceiling bar area gave the place a unique feel to say the least. I hope the Princeton location is better, because we were disappointed by the beers here, considering their reputation.

A more neo-modern ambiance, more metallic than woodsy, than the typical tavern / brewpub atmosphere so the environment depends on your preference. Can go outside to the patio in nice weather which is cool. Havenít tried entreeís though the appetizers have been inconsistent, both good & fair. Beer selection is their own on tap - love the coffee & cream stout. Gets rocking bands sometimes. Visit here and The River Horse in Lambertville when youíre in the area.

Itís a trendy town, New Hope, and youíre likely to find this brewpub filled with trendy people dining, drinking, and working. Very good beers, although I think not up to par with the Princeton beers, with some exceptions. Food is fine but overpriced, beer is reasonable and they have happy hour. They seem to be less reliant on the íregularí beer lineup aside from the honey wheat and they rotate through other styles more frequently. Todayís trip I found Impy Stout, Gothic Ale (like a gruit) on cask, Saison, Bengal IPA, Vienna Lager. Good stuff. I even overheard the bartender explaining the Gothic Ale to a customer, and she was right on the money! Iíd visit more regularly if it wasnít a 1 1/2 hour ride for me.

Not a bad place to go for lunch. I stopped here after a session st the River Horse Brewery on the other side of the river. At at a table with my son. food and service was fine. Tried a couple of beers. Waiters busy serving food, are not the same as an attentive bartender. After lunch we drove immediately to the Triumph Brewery in Princeton where the crowd was more interactive, noisier and the beer flowed easier. Nice finish to the day

Modern, clean, metro-hip newish brewpub in an upscale shopping area/condo development a short ways from downtown. The beers were mostly above average though nothing really stood out. Great service from the bartender who seemed somewhat interested in RB..nice relaxing atmosphere.

My very favorite brewpub. I get there on Wednesdays for lunch when I can and have rode a bike there more than once (to avoid driving). Great place in a great town with great beer.

Cool place near the RR tracks running through New Hope. And you can dine outside while watching the steam train coming and going. Beer is ok, and sometimes great, depending on what is on tap. Better beers are fall/winter/spring season. Food is a bit eccentric, but OK. The best part is the location.

The current pic is actually from the Princeton, not New Hope, Triumph. I liked New Hope... more of a convival, meet-random-people-at-the-bar kind of place. Liked the chalked up details of the beers on tap and currently being brewed, though I understand those signs sometimes lie. Not much of a view, as its somewhat off the main street, but thereís an antique train to look at while you dine. Charming outdoor patio when itís warm enough. Lots of open space for bands and special events. Would love to go there for one of them. Bartenders very helpful and friendly, the bean quesadilla I had was excellent, though small.

Ate lunch at the bar on a Friday. Decent beer. Bartender was nice and friendly. 7 beers on tap including a cask conditioned Porter. Overall a nice experience and a place I will be visiting again.
