Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. The interior was a bit worn and tired looking. They had a good number of house beers on tap, but everything in my flight was just mediocre. The appetizer I ordered was decent. Service was acceptable and prices seemed average. They have shuffleboard and darts, if that is of interest to you.

Stopped in for a flight. More of a college bar type atmosphere. 10 house beers on tap. Only tried 4, and they were decent. Our bartender was a nice guy and liked talking beer with us. Would definitely recommend stopping in and trying a few beers if your in the area.
Decent brewpub near Seton Hall. I used to go here frequently in college. College atmosphere with shuffleboard. A few decent guest taps. The beer used to have some quality control issues with the tap lines. Not sure if that’s been fixed. I’d stop by if I was visiting someone from Seton Hall but wouldn’t go out of my way.
A dated interior awaits just beyond the front doors. At first glance, it seemed no one at the bar was drinking house beers, but we ordered ours anyway. The beers were ok, and when we asked for their guest beers, a handwritten list came back with a few beers, one of which was "Stone". At any rate, the service was fine and the food good.
This was a very interesting place. The decor is stuck in the ’80s, the food is plain but massive portions, very filling. Seemed like there were dozens of staff, so service is quick, even though it was our server’s first day on the job. The beers were not worth writing home about. Sampler flight seemed like an unknown thing, but they did kindly put one together for us. We asked for a list of their bottles/guest list, and after a while we were handed a hand-written list on a guest check. Overall worth a stop.
Last stop of the day, and in New Jersey of all places. At first glance this isn’t the nicest part of town but I didn’t have any problems in the hour I was there. The restaurant has some small hop plants growing up the front of the building for decoration. Inside is a bar right in the middle of the room with a couple of large tvs scattered around the room. They were playing Rambo 4 on the tv which was awesome but it was also the television version which was a let down. What was also a letdown was the flight of house beers. They had a couple that were ok but most were not something I would drink again even if it was free. Across the bar was a couple, presumably on a first date that were fighting. It was both funny and sad to see. He was both angry and dumpy looking. The nachos were decent. Rambo and nachos are a good combination but I could use some better beer.

One of the earlier brewpubs and beer bars in north Jersey. Decent enough place...just good enough to be worth a special trip...but not great enough to return to very often. The place...service...and selections are a bit eclectic...not quite the norm...sometimes thst’s good and they hit a home run with an unusual beer or food offering...sometimes it’s just a miss though. One nice thing is that the place is in walking distance to the train station...that’s always handy.
Great selection in bottles and draft. The beers that they make are pretty good as well, I like their winter offerings better than the summer ones. The food complements the beers fairly well and the atmosphere is nice and welcoming.
