Hey, I was just excited that "The Vineyard" had a brew pub at all. The beers are decent, not great, but not bad at all. I was really disappointed that they didn’t have a sampler or flight of any kind, I mean what kind of brewpub doesn’t offer a sampler in 2009? Crazy! Anyway, I’d recommend the stout on nitro, I liked it better then the IPAs (my usual preference). Also, I think $3 for a glass (with purchase of a beer) is a pretty good deal, so I grabbed me one.
right off the main street of Oak Bluffs. The exterior has an old sea town look to it. Inside has a open layout with high ceilings, small bar and nautical decor. The beers are very nice. The waiters are some of the rudest people I’ve met. Somehow their island lifestyle is inconvenienced by customers. We had 3 different servers over the few days and they were all snots. Despite their best efforts to spread their misery to our table this is the best place in town to drink. Good food, fresh raw oysters, and a solid beer selection. Their wine list is pretty impressive as well.
Right in the heart of the small business district, it’s about 2 blocks from the ferry and just around the corner from bus stop/transfer point for the whole island. Welcoming exterior; warm, inviting interior. Friendly, attentive service. Lots of good choices on the menu, with an emphasis on pizza and seafood. Our selections were tasty and well presented. Choice of about 6 beers while we were there, including a well hopped IPA. The brewer stopped by to make sure we were being well taken care of. Can get very crowded, especially at night. Highly recommended.
The nautical decor of this quaint brewpub is interesting, and the atmosphere friendly and engaging. The flatbreads we had were very good and the various oysters on the menu looked very interesting indeed. The beer selection was rather typical with the blond, amber, red, brown, stout and company, but the 3 beers I had were all very well brewed and fun to drink. I just missed out on the Barley Wine and a stronger Belgian style, but then again it was understandable as it was the end of June. Overall, this was a pleasant brewpub experience.
As we got off the ferry we headed right to the Offshore. This was a pleasant surprise because had no idea a brew pub was out here until we found it in a travel guide. Nice place, quaint and not that crowded at the time we went. Seemed like a small bar area. Nautical island theme(New England). Service was good although we found a table and sat our selves. Beer was well done but not much to choose from. Good food, pizza was awesome.
This place is the coolest looking brewpub ever, with tons of nautical memorabilia and all the brewing equipment up behind the bar and the line. Good selection of options from Offshore. Also, six different varities of oysters on the half shell. Some day I’ll go back, get a pint of the Steeprock Stout and a good selection of oysters and enjoy myself when the place isn’s so full that a dozen people have to stand behind the bar to get a drink.
