Large place, brewhouse visible through glass near the bar. Plenty of parking. Medium sized bar, all else is tables, including some upstairs. Service appeared stressed - in fact, they borrowed our server from the Taphouse next door. Friendly but very slow. Food was as generic as the decor. Good prices. Flights of seven available, all were passable. Good enough stop.
Located in a historic building on one of the main streets in the heart of Fayetteville and about a 10 minute detour from the I-95 corridor. Friendly greeting upon entering the inviting, warm feel of the dining area and adjoining bar. The sounds of passing trains a block away added to the ambiance. Counted about 7 or so of their own drafts and another 6-7 guest taps; not sure of their bottle selection. We stuck with the house brews, which were pretty good. Only one that I did not care for was the bock seasonal. They have specials on different nights of the week and when we were there all drafts were $2, so that was a great value. Food menu was more than just pub grub; satisfying but not memorable. Good service from the bartender. Worth a visit if in the area.
Visited on a Friday afternoon. Nice location in downtown Fayetteville. Typical, but nice brewpub atmosphere. Lots of wood, nice long bar area. 6 house beers on tap when I visited, sampler trays offered. They also had around 8-10 other beers on tap, but it was really shitty macro selection. Their beers were pretty average for a brewpub. Nothing really stood out, but there were a couple crappy beers. I didn’t try the food, but it looked like standard pubfare. This place is probably worth checking out if you are going to be in town, but not worth going out of your way to visit.
Located downtown, plenty of street parking at 5PM on a Sunday. I was a little afraid to come here, because I tried their beers at a festival and they were horribly infected. Even worse, the brewer was pouring them and clearly indicated he didn’t care. Well, maybe he did care and he just decided to act like a prick back at the festival, because the same beers today were much better, even if they did have some faint infection notes. The place itself is fairly modern decor. Bar on the right, lots of tables, two levels, with the brewery visible towards the back of the place. 5 house beers on tap, which were all drinkable but nothing stood out. They have several macro options on tap as well as a guest tap which had another NC micro (which was better than any of their house beer... OOPS!). The bartender was overworked, which speaks of a management issue, but she also projected very clearly she didn’t want to be there, and she provided poor customer service. I did not try the food, and I’m glad I didn’t because another customer ordered and received his food just a couple minutes later. That scares me. Overall, this is a place that is nowhere near its potential.
April 2013 - Visited on a Friday night, unwittingly amidst a big downtown festival. We got there just before 9pm and got a table right away, but apparently they were going to start charging a $9 cover charge at any minute! (?? Really?). The service was friendly and efficient, but the waitress was fairly ignorant of beer. The food we ordered (appetizers and salads) came out in a fairly snappy manner and was good enough. The beers were a bit ordinary, and the best were simply average. Neat outside building space, could’ve been fitted up a bit nicer. Overall, an OK place. Brewery #601.
This place had a great feel to it. Wood everywhere, multiple levels, TVs with sports, and just a little bit dark. Booths have high backs, so you get a lot of privacy. Food is extremely tasty, and the service is great. They had six of their own beers on draft, though a flight was a little expensive ($15 for a sampler of 6). They had several other guest beers on draft (mostly local). Nice place.
