Iíve been here a number of times over the years but recently realized Iíd never reviewed the place. As such I made side trip there on my way back from RiverHorseís new digs not far away. First Iíll say...what this place has is some really good atmosphere...great building...original layout. Additionally, the food varies from good to very good and occasionally worth going out of your way for. Now for the beer...Iíve never been a big fan...not that they donít have some good beers...Iíve just found the offerings over the years to be a hit or miss selection of non-descript or unimaginative beers on up to pretty good and occasionally worth stopping in expressly for. The problem is you never know which youíre going to get...and never many of the best at one I donít feel this is a destination brewpub...but certainly a worthy stop when in the area. When recently there I enjoyed the Bengal Gold IPA and the Coco Buck.

A nice brewpub in downtown Princeton. Can be difficult to find a parking spot. When you enter the building, it is a long walk to the brewpub, but it ends up being quite a large space. Several levels of seating, but I sat at the bar. I got a czech pilsener and fruit beer, both decent. I didnít get any food. All the Triumph locations are pretty great, and I found this one worth the visit. The Princeton area is very nice as well.

The entrance is a long, cavernous walk from the edge of Princetonís campus back to what seems like the PA border. The inside seems like vamps would hold a rave here. The selection was kind of poor; we sat at the upper bar for several minutes without service before walking a few steps to the lower bar and getting our beers from someone who seemed like he had better things to do. The beers, once poured, tasted fine.

Going to give marks off for the waiter being completely useless - even had to cash out at the bar though we were at a table. That aside... Nice industrial/brewery vibe going on here. Selection of house beer was decent. I found the three we tried to be quite drinkable. Would go back for the beer, the food...but not the service.

You enter down a very long hallway, almost cave-like, into a multilevel place with one long bilevel L shaped bar. Most people we saw were drinking martinis or single malt whiskies, pretty unbelievable actually. Nice selection of beers available in a sampler, and two bottles as well, 750s. Nice stop. Street parking was easy right out front, but my guess is that was just good timing. Could be tougher if the campus has an event of some sort.

I was looking at place ratings wondering why I havenít rated any places in New jersey. then I remembered when I worked in Princeton I always came here. Great looking brewpub in downtown with exposed brick and its big. I used to get samplers of standard brewpub beers and also I drank a lot of scotch while here as was my way back then. Food I remember being good as well. Definitely worth a visit if in town I would go back

We had a really nice visit here. It was Sunday and fairly early for dinner, but the place was quite crowded considering how large it is. They had an interesting menu, with some variations on the typical bar food you might expect walking in, and the items we ordered were plenty solid. As for the beers, they ranged from mediocre to pretty solid, with more of them leaning toward the good side. They also had some styles you may not always find at a brewpub (Rauch, Impy Stout, Tripel) which was nice. The trainee we had serving us was pretty confused, but very nice, and she was clearly trying, so Iíll give her the benefit of the doubt. Iíd re-visit.

Came in here on a Saturday and the guy didnít charge me cover after I said I was just here for the beer. The music was really good, however. Beers were ok - nothing mind blowing but nice to have something in area. Sample tray is pretty cheap if I recall correctly. Food wasnít quite as good - had a very rubbery chicken sandwich. It was last call for food of the night, so maybe that had something to do with it.

The entrance on the main street in Princeton may be a bit tough to catch, but once you spot it and walk down the long hallway everything opens up immensely. This place is gorgeous, big open space, lots of revealed brickwork, large high ceilings permitting two levels. As I got here at about 11:30 on a Thursday, there was no crowd so to speak. There was an afternoon Metís game so the bar had been set up to have that as an event. $2 foot long hot dogs, $3 pints during the game. I sat myself at the lower bar amidst bowls of diced onions, relish, and ketchup and mustard bottles in preparation for the baseball crowds. Prices here are pretty good as well. They had seven beers on, and a sampler of all of them (seemed to be four ounce pours) was $9. During the day thereís also a bar menu in addition to the large menu of reasonably priced food. Got a grilled cheese, side salad, and an order of fried pickles for a total of $11. Hard to beat that. Service was great, very friendly and fast (Iím sure it helped that I was the only one in the bar for a while). Could also have been because it was the start of the shift and work day, but everyone I saw working seemed happy and smiled a lot. Food came out quickly and was done well. Beers that were there when I visited Ė 2 IPAs, oatmeal stout, witbier, amber, blonde, and a dortmunder/helles. Some were solid, most were a step or two above typical brewpub beers. Also, free wi-fi is always a good thing.

Located on a street with a downtown-ish feel right next to the University. I found parking to be a slight challenge. The place looks VERY much like it used to be an old theater, and today it is adorned with artwork and movie memorabilia. There are three levels in the place. The bar itself is on two of the levels which is kinda cool and there are tables on the upper level. Technically the brewhouse is on a fourth level, between the upper part of the bar and the upstairs seating. The bartender was professional enough. Food prices were solid with some good specials. I got a massive buffalo chicken sandwhich with a ton of house made potato chips for $7. The beers were all pretty solid. Overall, this is a great place.
