Great place. Old pub feel to the place. Lots of stuffed monkeys which is always a good thing. Brew equipment is right there where it can be seen, although i’ve never seen it used while i’ve been in there. Some beer vats down by the kitchen too.
Service is always friendly and honest.
Great selection. They got a bunch of different styles of thier own, plus they’ve got a bunch of guest taps so you’ll always find something you like... unless you like coors light or some crap like that.
Food is good for pub food, I find it odd to put lettuce on nachos though.
Overall, It’s a great pub, probably the best in the region.
I’m a regular, so biased. John is an excellent brewer, and the only complaint (I’m sure he’d make it too) is that they lack the physical capacity to make more and keep everything on. When they began John was experimenting a lot, with a ginger ale, a pumpkin ale, etc. But they became seasonal staples, to the point that he rarely has the capacity to experiment. That notwithstanding, their house brews are excellent, and they carry no macros, on bottle or tap. No bottles at all (except some coolers). The staff are great; knowledgeable, personable, a little edgy. Music is a great addition to the pub, but at times a little too loud. But it brings in the kids, which means more converts to the microbrewery side of the force. The food could use a revision. I’m very bored with the menu (and even my non-vegetarian friends concur). But definitely worth a visit--call ahead to see what’s on right now, because they are often out of half of their house brews. the IPA, Drunken Mon
This is a pretty cool spot to chill and down some pints, (or there is also a wide selection of bourbon’s and whiskeys behind the bar too). All the beers are made in house, but thankfully there is a wide selection. From the seating you can see the tanks for the beer, really has a hometown vibe to it. There were some pretty good specials on the wall for food-beer combos. Probably will haunt here a bit more often.
An old stomping ground of mine and the place where I first discovered craft beer when I was an innocent young lad. Having recently returned now many beers later I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their beers (I was expecting them to be sub-par as my beer experiences have grown alot since I was last here). They also sport a few Ontario craft beer taps and I saw that they had the GLB 666 on tap. Food is great for pub fare. Everything looks and tastes like it is made in house and the place is right on St. Paul street in the core of St. City. I will always be popping in when I’m passing through the town.
had gone to the brewing college so had to stop in here.. . they have healthy sized sample flight trays so thats a huge plus .. good amount of house beers and locals .. friendly and rather cute bartender chicks .. i’d stop by again without even thinking about it!
Visited on June 26, 2015, in late afternoon. Located in the heart of downtown St. Cath, it’s a nice cozy old fashioned pub, the inside is fairly wide open. The service was pretty nice and and courtesy. The beers were ok, not awesome but not disgusting, there is a lot of selection from their own and invites. The food is typical but tasty pub fair. In all its good place to go when you want a break from all the good wine!

Best place I’ve found north of the border so far. It’s a popular joint and the place seems to always be full. Brews its own beer which is cool, and offer a set of 4 tasters of any house brew at a reasonable price. They have over a dozen house brews which is pretty impressive!
Stopped in here for a couple of beers and a bit to eat on the way from Niagara Falls to Toronto. Excellent atmosphere and a beautiful space though the stuffed monkeys above the bar need some dusting I’d imagine that late into the night with a band blaring I’d be miserable, but for an early lunch it was great. No samplers offered, but they were happy to pour tastes and half pints. Food was reasonably priced and tasty. Some nice seasonals and a seemingly out of place IPA (it was quite good). Handful of other locals on tap, which is always nice to see.
Nice brewpub, I really liked the interior. 5 house brews we tried. A nice blond, a very good brown ale, an excellent ESB, and a good oatmeal stout. Good food right downtown, well worth a stop. If I lived in town I’d be a regular.

Casual brewpub/beer bar is an oasis in St. Kitts. Decent all round, worth a stop if you're in the neighbourhood.
