Simply one of my favorite places to have a beer. The place has an atmosphere all it’s own. The beers are getting better and better with a mead now being produced as well.
Do yoursefl a favor and stop in.
The food here is really great, if you’re prepared for a heavy old fashioned meal! Beers are usually pretty good, and getting the table by the fire place on a cold night, and getting a roasted chicken with a pile of mashed potatoes and a pint of porter, well, that’s the kind of stuff I like.
Had lunch here for the first time last Saturday. Fabulous ambiance, and my server was very helpful and nice. I had 12 three ounce beers, with two cask beers and a double shot of the raspberry mead. Wonderfu; beers, and my meatloaf was very fresh and tasty. This will definitely be a regular stop for me.
This place is awesome. The building itself is gorgeous and very well decorated. The feel inside in fantastic. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the beer and food. The selection of beers was impressive, with American, British, German, and Belgian styles all represented. The food was bomb, in particular the roasted beet salad. Price was really good said and done. I can’t wait to get back to this joint.
Great brewery with tons of history, great beer and food. There is always a wide selection of beer which can hang with the best of them. Staff is knowledgeble. The whole menu is delicious and you can take home a growler to enjoy.

Nice historical setting and really good beer. Food is good and comes out quick. Pretty impressive that they manage to have a good brewpub on an important historical site. About 8 or so beers available at any one time, including 2 cask pours. Their seasonals are very unique and they seem to be made by some quality people who really love their beer. The Chocolate Thunder porter was really something. The menu said they had some reserve bottles, but they had to be consumed on site.
Now this is a place with some authenticity, except for the AC, I feel like I’ve just jumped down from my horse, after a hard days travelling along Germantown Pike, now ready to rest. I feel I’m in the early 19th century with wooden cealing and huge fireplaces, and only dimly lit. And this is a good place to rest, first You get a very tasty meal at a very resonable price, then You sample all the beers, 9 on tap/cask and 5 vintage bottles, ranging from boring to outstanding. And then You can retreat to the inn in the back yard - again it reminds me of being a traveller of the 19th century. The inn is a bit pricy, but included in the price are complementary soda, juice, bagels, coffee etc. and a huge living room, kitchen and dining room as a shared facility of the 5 rooms - I really felt at home and could stay for awhile. So if You visit the place, then do stay the night, then You can also sample all the strong vintage bottles without having to think about driving afterwards. The service in the restaurant and the bar was very friendly, it is a very nice couple that owns and runs this place. I want to come back.
This looks like a house in suburbia. Low and behold its a bed and breakfast and a brewery. The tap selection is awesome. Only a few session choices but many great ones on tap like an aged barleywine, impy stout, dubbel, tripel, mead, etc. The food is excellent and the atmosphere is very laid back. It was like Cheers, everyone seemed to be familiar with everyone else. A hidden gem.
This place has the perfect atmosphere for enjoying hearty food and big, bold ales, lagers and stouts. Though the service leaves something to be desired, the food was absolutley tremendous - better than we expected. They have 4 beers on tap at all times, and 5 seasonal - something for everyone from Imperial Stout to Pilsner and everything in between wehn we were there. Live music was a bonus too, as the gentleman with nothing but an acoustic guitar belted out a few Dave Mathews tunes. If you haven’t been - get there - I’ll be back to rate as many of their beers as possible!
Colonial feel in a brewpub. Pretty cool place. The bar has two sides, one is quiet, the other is a larger open area, where you can view some of the brewing equipment and watch TV. There is also a game romm, and a rather large dining area. Food is good, and beer is usually interesting with an abundance of big beers offered year round.
