Visited on a Monday afternoon. I think the lunch crowd had already gone, because it was spares in there other than some folks at the bar. The bartender was friendly and greeted us once we sat down and had a minute to look at the tap list on the wall. They had 6 beers on tap and 4 were some iteration of pale ale. Could use a little more diversity here. I went with the Session IPA as I was biking and wanting to avoid anything too high in alcohol. It was decent, but the price tag was fought at $6.50 for the pour. Food is available here, but we opted to not eat. If you are on Martha’s Vineyard and need a beer fix, this place will do.
Great place, I make sure to take anyone who visits me on the Cape who wants to head to the Vineyard for any reason to this place. Good beers, good pizza and food, and good homebrewed root beer. Their bottled offerings in the region just don’t do it for me, you should head there and grab a bowl of peanuts and a couple of drinks and a pizza and you’ll be set. Plus, it’s year-round, which is rare on the island.
Went here while taking a break from exploring Martha’s Vineyard. Ambiance/atmosphere is very cool, with boats suspended in the rafters, a nice patio, and a bar with plenty of locals. It was slow, so service was quick. Selection is OK, they had most of their taps available. The value was good for oak bluffs, I thought prices were fair ($6/pint is standard). Overall I’d go here again the next time I’m in oak bluffs, but I don’t expect them to have anything new or interesting on tap.
Nice place in central Oak Bluffs. Had about six to eight of their beers available on tap plus a handful more in bottles. The beers I had were all good, though none were great; they included a pale ale, IPA, DIPA, stout and hefeweizen. The place itself is nice, the servers are friendly and attentive, the prices are decent and you can get half pints (for slightly more than half the price of a pint). They also have free shelled peanuts, and when you open them you just toss the shells on the floor. Seems like this place is one of the only good beer spots in MV, so definitely worth a visit if you’re on the island.
This place is pretty cool for a brewpub on Martha’s vineyard. The service was good, the beer was good even if the selection is limited, and the food was good. Definitely worth going to if you’re on this island.
It is nice to see that Martha’s Vineyard now has its own hometown brewpub, and one that is worthy of the place. I stopped by for a couple of brews and lunch before catching a ferry back to the mainland, and I was not disappointed. This is a comfortable. old wooden pub with high ceilings and rafters laden with nautical brickabrack. They had about 6-8 of their brews available on draft, and a couple in bottles. Growlers are available. The menu contains quality pub-grub, like fish and chips, pulled pork, and sausages. A barrel of salted peanuts is waiting for you by the door, and their hand-made potato crisps are well worth trying. I would be willing to stop in here for the food alone, which is not something I would say about many beer geek joints. And unlike one of my fellow raters, I have no complaints about the servers. I bet this place is good in the off-season too. Well worth a visit if you are on the island.

BTW... This is one of my favourite places to go on Martha’s Vineyard.
Came in on a wet, windy night and found a hopping restaurant and bar area with live music (piano), but not loud and obnoxious. Had both of their IPAs available at the time (their regular and their imperial). Beer was not our #1 concern for going there--it was food, but the beer dramatically exceeded my expectations. I had several of their raw oyster varieties along with some mussels. The peanut shells on the floor reminded me of Texas Steakhouse, et al., but maybe it was just me, but their peanuts just tasted different and better than what one might come across in a similar setting. We were in the offseason and it was mostly locals, which I think added to the ambience.
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.
