An open plan brewery encompassing a bar and restaurant in a large warehouse-like building. There are also dartboards and a pool table plus a stage at the back as it’s a music venue as well. We had a mini tour of the brewery, which is quite low tech., and were told that they also have two microbreweries elsewhere. There were twelve taps and the beers were in good condition but the range was rather limited as there were no stouts or IPAs on.

Stopped here a few times now, the long main bar has a good view of the tanks, while outside there is a popular patio. The beer selection has a decent range of styles but their house beers are generally just okay. Okay.
Nice brewpub with a small (4, when I went) selection of their own beers, plus taps from other acceptable brewers (Hop City). Food was good and well-priced. The beers themselves were fine, though I didn’t get to try their IPA which was disappointing. Will return whenever I’m in Niagara Falls.
a very basic brewpub .. the beers were average at best, though a couple were very nice .. the food was terrific (anyone say poutine!?!) .. my server was a bit of a schmuck .. overall: a decent place- i’d go back for the food alone
A great spot for beer in Niagara Falls. It is a little removed from the touristy area and the falls themselves, but still walkable from there if you want to. The architecture/set up was a little strange for me - almost warehouse-like with high ceilings. There is a dining area, then the tanks, right behind the bar itself. So the tanks are in the middle of the restaurant, which is a little weird. Also not much decoration on the walls and whatnot, just felt like an empty place (in addition there were like 2-3 other customers on a Monday afternoon). Anyway, apart from that, I really enjoyed the beer. I tried the IPA, Kolsch, Schwarzbier, and pumpkin and all were great. Pretty good prices ($4.50 for an imperial pint). I thought the food was overpriced for what it was (got a chicken souvlaki which was a little dry and the mashed potatoes were completely bland, for $14). My overall rating might be a little low based on a combination of all the score components, but I really enjoyed the beer there and would recommend stopping here for a pint.

A pleasant brewpub, newer interior we sat outside on a beautiful day. Pub brews were ok to good, I liked the ipa best. Food was pretty good
Looked newly renovated, very clean and nice inside. Service was excellent. Not much of a selection but there are a few gems. Large food portions at a reasonable price. I will be returning for a growler of chokeslam!
Strange location, I think they would do better a little closer to the heart of Nia falls, but wasn’t hard to find, nice big building, first think you notice is the tall ceiling, Dining room and Bar spilt by the brewing tanks, I think the dining room atmosphere would just be that much better if they put glass plating behind the booths that face the bar, and the tanks, it just felt weird so open, we really liked the food and it was pretty reasonable priced, I go here fairly often nw
Niagara Falls, a police state. Cruise the town in a car or truck to find it, but beware as it is heavily policed.Visited here with Cratez on a Monday afternoon.
We were greeted with a very large and well lit warehouse that seated a bar to sit at, a brew house, a dining room, and an open concept kitchen. One can see what is going on in every corner of the restaurant at any time.
We sat at the bar, where we noticed a new addition to the scene here, a cask engine. They were waiting for their next cask to be ready, so it was not available.
Service was fairly standard. Not poor, not great. The basic meet and greet, "what can I get for you?" was about it. We tried to strike up chat with the barkeep but he was more interested with his co-workers and other patrons. Can’t say I blame him really, we weren’t that interesting. One thing I can say is that the service was attentive at the very least.
There were 10 taps to choose from. I went with the Taps Chuck Norris, Hefe, and 80/-. All were well made and worth ordering again. There were also guest taps from Niagara’s best.
One thing I must say about this place is that the value here is unmatched. $3.50 pints on Sunday. $10 burger and 20 oz pint.$19.80 3 LITER "pitchers". It goes on and on. Based on this aspect, the place is a repeat visit for me. Growlers are available to go. Good overall.
