An awesome brewpub off I-70 in Zanesville, Ohio. Unfortunately this place is never open when Iím passing by (usually Sunday), otherwise Iíd have visited it sooner. Even on a snowy Friday night it was still plenty full of customers. They definitely have an interesting beer list- year rounds include an IPA, wheat, brown, blonde, stout, etc. Interesting seasonals include an imperial black ale, smoked ale, imperial stout, bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, holiday ale (a super tasty chocolatey, creamy, vanilla ale). Overall thereís plenty of beers to choose from and most of them are quite good. The food menu mainly consists of pizza and some salads. The white pizza was quite awesome. It is certainly a top notch brewpub and worth a visit.

Stopped in for dinner around 4 pm on a Friday. Parking is across the street from the building. At first, we were the only people in the building aside from the staff. I ordered the sampler paddle and my wife and I split a pizza that turned out to be wonderful. The beer was good, the pizza was very good, and the service was as good as could be expected. I would come back.

I had been on vacation in Illinois and stopped in Zanesville before heading the last leg of the trip back to Washington DC. It was a dark and rainy night, but we decided to go check out the place. Driving from the downtown area, we crossed a bridge, down a curvy road with obligatory "watch for falling rocks" signs, and made it there - the trip only took a few minutes.
We got there and found that there were some traveling bands performing in the main bar taproom area - to the left was a sit-down area that was closed for the evening. We got a table near the bar - looks like a nice relaxing place to go. After the first (or at least first one we heard) act finished, many of the people filed out. Owner was sitting at the bar. We had prompt service, tried a few of the brews on tap. Enjoyed them quite a lot. Should have asked for a sampler, but we got a pint each, and I tried a few of the beers before getting my growler filled. Pints were 3.75 or so, and grower fill was about 14 since they let me get their sour (regular fills are something like 12).
Only serious complaint was not due to the place, but the music. It was loud - I could have done without hearing the music from people aspiring to be the next Plain White Tís.

Iíve been trying to get here for ever. A great little place in the heart of Zanesville. A good tap selection that allows you to do a flight sampler.They also have growlers to go. Service was excellent, we did go when they 1st opened so there wasnít many peeps there. Go out to the patio and see the huge hop plants growing.If your traveling thru this are it is a must stop. It is not far off the beaten path.

Cool place with a comfy industrial vibe. Decent service and above average beer. Enjoyed wasting a few hours in Zanesville and would definitely come back.

I stopped by during one of my all to frequent trips across the great states of Pennsylvania and Ohio. Itís close to I-70 so is a perfect spot to get out and stretch the legs for a bit. Warehouse feel with the brewing bit nearly touchable from the drinking bit. Views out the large windows are of the flowing river, which is quite relaxing. The barkeep was very friendly and eager to give me a good reccomendation for my growler fill. I had forgotten to bring one of my growlers with me on that trip so I picked one up there- just $17 for the beer and growler, not too bad. I only had their IPA but it was very tasty. Iíll be stopping in again on my next trip down I-70; hopefully for a bit longer, too.

Finally stopped in here after several years of simply getting their beers on tap elsewhere or at local brew fest. Absolutely fantastic architecture. Brewery is located right on the Muskingum River in an old warehouse. Hops growing outside along the patio against the river gave a fantastic backdrop. One tap tender on duty for this Saturday afternoon. He was knowledgeable and friendly. We did the sampler. All beers were good. I personally loved the Stoat Stout and the Mango Wheat. Roamed around freely snapping many pictures. Very cool place would be fun in the evenings if I lived closer!

Stopped by this place with my father-in-law in the midst of a camping excursion to Zanesville this past weekend.
As you walk in the doors, the taproom is off to the right. When we got there, they were cleaning out the brewing equipment and had that area roped off. There are a few tables before getting into the bar area, which also includes some nice cushioned seats and sofa-like seating. Cool beer signs all over the walls and a very nice stain-glass logo above the bar. The bar was crowded, though we got prompt service.
There were nine beers on draft. Refreshingly, the vast majority of them were below 6% ABV. Perfect for the summer, and perfect for a round of tasting glasses. Service was excellent. The bartender was quite friendly and those who I assume were the owners were quite friendly, asking us how everything was and then grabbing our pint glass when it was time to go.
Food was just pretzels, but I wasnít complaining. Pricing was quite reasonable. We got a pint glass, 9-beer sampler, new growler to go, and a pint of the Rye Pale for about $30. Iíll definitely visit again if Iím ever around Zanesville.

Back off on a side road from the famous íYí bridge. Its right next to the river. From the outside it looks like an old warehouse and gives no hint of what youíll find inside. Once in, its clean, artful and well oragnized with two big rooms. One room is a pretty large area for bands and gatherings and such and the other room is where the bar, tanks and general eating and drinking goes on. The bartender was very frienly and helpful and the day we were there they had eight beers on tap. Although they had only pizza from their own oven, evedently it is very common to get food delivered from a well known fine local eating establishment called Muddy Misers right next door to eat in! We had ribs and fish and it was some of the best most affordable ffod we ate in months! I got a sampler of 8 beers for only $7.50 and all were pretty good and on style. Overall good beer drinken experience and will go back. Oh yea, they do have a cool area where you can sit back on some easy chair and couches if you just want to hang out and drink beers like you are in a living room with your friends, pretty cool.

This is what microbreweries are all about. A local homebrewing husband and wife team living the dream by opening up their own brewery. Its all good because they are doing it for the right reasons, because they are passionate about beer and brewing, its what all chain brewpubs lack. And they make good beer and are usually around to talk about it.
