This place has a great patio where i get the pleasure of watching moms and dads loading up their kiddies on a scenic railroad built on 90 # rail. I seem to be an expert in this field and would never let my child on an archaic RR. But I digress. The patio is large, the bar in side is large. The food is good and well prepped. Beer selection is all their own. Some is good, some mediocre. Never a unpalatable beer in the mix, which is something that can not be said about all brewpubs. Service is friendly and adequate.
The beer selection is limited to the 7 drafts, all of which were pretty solid, but not exceptional. I think they also offer a few large format bottles. The food, however, was excellent. They focus on local ingredients, and they have a very talented chef. Great diversity and variety on the menu, and very beer friendly food. Great, attentive service as well.
Food was good. The Abience was nice. However, I go for the beers, and every beer was thin and watery.
I like my stouts to be real stouts not watery, and my IPA’S need to have a hop bite, not thin and bland. Overall the place was ok.
Sat outside along the train tracks which was pretty neat the inside had high ceilings and the industrial look ... beer was average and overpriced although its a buck off on tuesdays and the happy hour specials are ONLY at the bar ... our server was not very friendly and the food was like upscale pub with an organic/natural twist ... reminded me a bit of a iron hill but not as good ... prices were a bit high and the pay parking is self explanatory if you read or ask questions! They had a half dozen brews on tap .... Overall it wasn’t bad, but if your going to have happy hour and specials why just limit it to the bar?
Great brew pub, fairly local. Set up like the interior of an old factory, making for a cool ambience. Great selection of top notch beers that they brew. Food is phenomenal, a touch on the pricey side. Growlers to go on everything except stouts. Pay to park lot kind of sucks, but ends early in the night, free after.
Visited this place a few months ago and ended up getting a parking ticket for the confusing parking situation. Had the oatmeal cookie stout, witbier and something else. The beer was pretty good. Nothing on the food menu struck me as particularly good. The bar wench checked on us quite often and a cute guy behind the bar let me try an interesting sounding mixed drink. On par with most bars with regard to their prices. Nice bar. A few flat screens and a pool table. Seems like a cool place to relax at after work. I’d go back.
all their own beers. always a range of selection. usually at least one hand-pump cask ale. monthly "brewers special" keg which is gone when it’s gone. bartenders are friendly but knowledge is variable. wide variety of "urban-chic" food. tends to be pricey b/c of the tourism. paying for parking blows.
...pretty sure they’ll do growlers if you ask... apparently there is a fee.
Went here on a Sunday for lunch. Food was very good. The stage is nice too. They had a guy and a guitar, was nice. We had their sampler of beer. 5 beers, all interesting except the American Lite. Tastes like water. Anyway, it’s a nice atmosphere, lots of exposed beams and steel.
Every fall, this place makes a great pumpkin ale that’s just amazing. They also make an above average honey wheat beer and a truly awesome coffee and cream stout.
The overall value of this place, in my book, goes down for two reasons: they jack up their prices because they’re in a touristy area, and their menu selections aren’t always complementary to a good beer.
I like Triumph beers, but the Triumph down in Philly has a much better ambiance and menu.
