The head of the class among NJ brewpubs. Their beer is top notch. While some styles are not to my taste, they are quality representations of what they should be. I also like the fact that they usually have a cask beer available. The food is pretty good, but the menu is limited. Appetizers, which in my opinion should be the bread and butter of a place like this, are particularly limited in their selection and food styles. The staff is attentive, reasonably knowledgeable, and quite courteous in offering small samples of the beers to try before ordering (something especially valuable in small brewpubs). The ambiance is pretty cool. Sitting at the bar staring up at the big tanks makes for a great visual effect for a brewpub such as this. I like it a lot. I wish I could get there more often.

Solid brewpub in Princeton. Food is above average. Prices were a touch high. Good service. Beer is above average for brewpubs typically.

Really liked the place. Calm, quite, reserved...do college students in Princeton not drink before noon? Beuatiful space. Goodnfood and beer. Not guest taps. Good service. Prices are higher than I am used tofor food, but reasonable to good for the area.

Awesome building. Parking can suck. House beers are slightly above average. I had a sampler, and all were pretty decent. Food is very good. A bit pricey, but that comes with the area.

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 location...location...location...plus 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 time...so 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.
