The Brew Pub has great bartenders that are knowledgable of the beers available. The food is what you would expect - above average pub food clean bathrooms, plenty of parking, good place for drinking at the bar or sitting down for dinner. As far as the beer selection, there is usually a good selection of New York beers like saranac, ithaca, flying bison, southern tier and brooklyn but sadly no middle ages. There is also normally a great lakes and long trail available. As far as the house brew its hit and miss, but the oatmeal stout is great and around christmas they have a strong ale that is good.
I go here often, mostly because it’s the closest local brewery to where I live, but I keep going back because I’m always happy with the beer. Nothing really fancy like Coles, but a convenient, family style restaurant that also makes its own beer. I can recommend the BP.
Cozy place with 4 of their own beers on tap and about 25 or so others. Their beers are okay, but nothing exceptional, although based on some past reviews it seems they have gotten some infection/brewing issues under control. 6 oz. flight-size samples are available, though I don’t remember the price; our bill was pretty cheap though, so it couldn’t have been that much. The food it typical pub fare with some Buffalo favorites, again, nothing mind blowing, but solid and fairly priced. Complimentary self-serve popcorn and peanuts are also available. Our waitress was friendly, and overall my experience was enjoyable. If there was more of a rotation on the house beers I’d probably come back at some point.
This was the place that got me into beer, or at least into good beer. Okay selection, decent food and good service. You won’t be blown away by anything here but it is worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood.
Near the airport, Transit area. Pretty large and pleasant place, frequented by lots of college studatents, so everyone can get ID’d there. Crowded but still feeling of some room if you can get at the bar for your order. Saw about 20 or so taps, with some decent selections, but not the big new ones you can get nearby at Pizza Plant, and certainly at Cole’s and Mr. Goodbar. You can get 6 oz. size glasses, perfect for a proper sampling. I tried their house beers this way which were passable. Music is kept down and folk rocky so conversation is easy. Separate bar area for those eating at a bar, which was good. Very good service for a buzy place.
It seems to be disliked by local community. I gave them chance. It was not great but it was not disaster either. Service was quiet friendly and seemed to care. The issue might be that they cater to families and not beer geeks. Food was ok with reasonable prices.
lunch with my wife. I sampled two of thier house beers, both were beyond subpar. The rest of the beers on tap were common, but acceptable nonetheless. Food and service were good. Large menu to pick from made it hard. An ok, place, i wonder if they will sell me their equipment since they clearly extract brew house beers.
Nice homey pub feel, great service with lots of waiters/waitress present. Free peanuts and pop corna dn the peanut shells go on the floor. Menu has somthign for everybody and the food is top notch, howe ever their house beers suck. Get one of the others they have on tap.
Good enough pub grub & they usually have some decent guest taps. Unfortunately their house beer isn’t all that great. Check them out if you’re looking for a tick, otherwise head to Pizza Plant if you’re in that area.
