Stopped in with my family. Very kid friendly. Good food. Great, friendly service. Reasonable prices. Good beer. I highly recommend the beer sampler (8, 5oz samples of their beer for $14). They even make their own root beer, which my 8 yr old son loved. A great place to stop when you’re in Sandpoint.
Average “ambiance” for a brewpub – nothing special but I’ve been in much worse. Some good beers – I almost always do a growler fill of their Strom Hammer IPA. Decent food with an above average staff. Always good service when sitting at the bar.

Cozy-but-plain place that has about a dozen tables in addition to the long bar that has about a dozen taps of their own product. No guest taps when we stopped in. No time for food or tastings unfortunately, due to the long drive ahead of us. Disappointed that they only bottle the Paddler Pale, as it is excellent! Will make a point of stopping longer next time!
Cool place, brewing eqipment is right at the front of the restaurant so I talked to the brewer which is always cool. It took a while for the one bartender to pour me a flight since she was doing about 18 other things. Other than that everything was nice... Been here a few more times now. Seems like there is always a new beer. Very relaxed atmosphere.
Right in the center of town. One small and one large TV. Not terribly large, many people left when they could not get a seat. Good beer cheese soup. Asparagus was way over steamed. Had a thick piece of meatloaf with porter gravy. Brew tanks left of the door in front of the bar. Moderately noisy when full. Lots of beers to sample. Tray of 6 was $8 and a couple more samples were not charged.
Great place to hang out and watch the Cougs, test your knowledge in some trivia, or have a good beer or three. Food has been very good each time I have visited. Be sure to try the burbon stout and the dunklewiezen.
If you are in Sandpoint and you like beer and good food, then you need to stop in at Mick Duff’s. We stopped for lunch and the sandwiches were great! The young guy that waited on us was very friendly, but I gave an 8 because of the girl that was working when I stopped in the day before and only had one beer at happy hour, she didn’t seem too friendly and the place was not busy enough to be an excuse. I love their homecut fries with the skins, we had an amazing spicy hommus as an appetizer. The beers that I had were very good. They even let me have a couple of free beer samples to help me decide what I would order. In early July, 2007 they had an organic IPA called Shillelagh and a Huckleberry Blonde (both seasonal). Would love to be here on St. Pat’s Day! My kind of place.
