I visit the place often so have gotten to see it change over the years mostly for the better. It stared out a brewery with food, and is now more a restaurant with a brewery inside, though a lot of the brewing equipment is up on a mezzanine out of the way.
The food here has gotten pretty good and as a result the place is usually packed as it was on a Friday night when our party had wait 30 minutes for a table . The brewer has stepped up his game and while there were only seven house brews on tap they were excellent. Good service, reasonable noise. good food, and of course good beers made for an enjoyable experience i will keep coming back.
Nice place to stop for a beer or two. Service was excellent. They have a better than average selection of beers on tap and a sampler that is a really good deal. Unique items on the menu along with the regular pub fare. Prices were reasonable.
On a Friday night the place was full. We waited about 20 minutes to get to the bar. Half of the 6 beers I tasted were good and the rest great. We didn’t have food. Service was very minimal but it was very busy time. It’s very close to Caldera Taproom. I could visit again when it’s not that busy.
Beautiful little brewpub / restaurant just around the corner from Caldera tap house. Interior is quite elegant, with the seating downstairs and the brewing facilities upstairs. Beer quality is decent - the IIPA is probably their best one, though the stouts are nice as well. Prices are extremely reasonable ($5 to sample 7 on tap!). Service couldn’t have been friendlier. We had just eaten before coming here, but we’re kicking ourselves as the menu looked great (lots of great healthy veggie/vegan options). A must stop when in Ashland - even if the beer quality isn’t prime, the experience sure is.
To be honest the only good thing about this place is the building. Lovely spot in downtown Ashland.
Had a terrible food experience. The service, price. attutude were huge turnoffs.
The beer took 20 minutes to get to us and was warm. Mediocre beers and bad food.
I didn’t try other beers but seriously the owners should be embarrassed for a lack of effort at what is still a hopping restaurant.
A bright and beautiful pub on a corner surrounded by some pretty pricy shops. Bar was full when I was in – likely because of the Shakespeare Festival going on at the time. Slow to serve me and not all that friendly (although not rude either – just kind of getting stuff done). What was surprising was the uniformly poor quality of the beer – diacetyl in one and a general watery palate in the others. Only the DIPA was good, and even that was more like a regular IPA than a double IPA. The food looked quite good – but even there, there are better eating and drinking options in town.
Sweet spot! Excellent set up with the brew house above where everyone sits! Great metal and wood work inside. Options for beer are okay, they had the DIPA which was nice. Would definitely come back and try the food!
