A homely roadside brewpub with a cowpoke theme - lassoes and stirrups on the walls (but no cowboy hats as far as I could see) and some of the booths sporting upholstery depicting wild west explorers and bucking bronchos. There’s a separate eating area but we chose to eat in the bar from the special lunch menu which was supposed to be small portions but I forgot that this is America! There were ten taps, mainly with their own beer.

Visited on Monday 20/05/13 for lunch.
Rectangular bar amidst a medium to sized room with adjoining dining room on split levels.
Lots of cowboy shit adorns the walls, boots, saddles and the like.
16 taps of their own beers dispensing a good variety of styles, all drinkable enough but no world beaters.
Service was prompt and friendly.
The place was moderatley busy with about a dozen sat around the bar and anoter 20/25 folks, largely an older crowd, eating in the dining room.
Food was fine but nothing too amazing.
Good vfm tasting flights available, $7.99 for 6x4oz or any given 4oz taster for $1.99.
Worth a visit to get through a few ticks but overall the beer is pretty entry level/generic 90’s brew pub fayre.
I like the idea of a brewpub that serves something other than burgers, fish and chips, and pizza. The beers were solid but not spectacular although I did enjoy the milk stout. I can’t say if they bartenders have much beer knowledge but it had a neighborhood local vibe to the place. Everyone at the bar seemed to know one another. The sampler was reasonably priced and they threw in a free pint which was unexpected. I didn’t sample the food but what I saw around the bar looked tasty.
Stopped in with my girlfriend on my way up to Vermont. Bartender was very friendly. Unfortunately, a number of beers had kicked (was especially sad to miss the Milk stout) but I was still able to fill a 7 beer sampler, so no big deal. Beers were all solid to good. The blueberry lager surprised and impressed me. We’re both vegetarians, so our food options were very limited (I won’t hold that against them though, I know it’s a steakhouse). The jalapeño poppers were good, but the batter on the bloomin onion was oddly dusty tasting and made me feel a bit sick. Overall, it was a great stop. Place had a local feel (the cowboy theme is a bit hokey though), but you know you’re in a good place when the (very friendly) bartender knows all the regulars by name and usual order. Wish this was closer to home.
Who doesn’t like a a Greek-Western Themed Steakhouse-Brewery! Great atmospher, extensive pub food menu, always give you plenty to eat, excellent service., lots of beers on tap. The beer can be great when they invest in it, like the 2x IPA, and mediocre when they do things like put watermellon flavor in. Definitely worth a trip.
The place looks like a Ponderosa, however, the beer are top notch, very solid. We had a sampler (6 beers) and managed to get a taste of the cask aged King Oak Milk Stout. Service was friendly and the brewer came to say hi. Visited on Inbièrenationale IV, May 2007.
I finally got up here to have a dinner and a few beers. This place will not disappoint. The decor is western style steakhouse. Their beers are quite good. I am not sure what is actually brewed here and what comes from their off site brewery, but they had a very large selection of their beers on tap. We started out with an appetizer of onion rings. Thick cut, tasty and a very large quantity. I had a filet mignon, while my wife had swordfish. Both were excellent and reasonably priced. The portions were generous without being too much. Even the kids menu was good. My daughter had chicken strips, which looked like they were made there.
