Nice big open restaurant with a sort of industrial feel. Service was friendly and attentive. Small selection of house-brewed beer and was able to purchase 2 bottles to go. Food was very good and prices were fine. Enjoyed my trip here.

Had lunch here. Decent food selection, and good qulaity. Annoying that you have to pay to park here, but that’s New Hope for you. The beers were fair to pretty good. The porter and imperial stout were the best of the seven-beer sampler I tried. The helles was mediocre at best, as was the honey wheat. Snakebite was interesting, and the IPA and amber ale weren’t bad, either.

Nice little brewpub/restaurant in a small shopping center in cute and popular New Hope village. Service was very courteous and could answer beer-related questions. Beers were somewhat of a disappointment, even the imperial stout. Everything was well-made though, just nothing spectacular in the lineup we had that day. The brick walls decorated with paintings in the room adjoining the high-ceiling bar area gave the place a unique feel to say the least. I hope the Princeton location is better, because we were disappointed by the beers here, considering their reputation.
Stopped in for a beer. Wond up getting the sampler. Decent brews. I particulary liked the IPA and Belgium Ale. We didn’t eat here lbut ooked at the menu. They had some unique dishes that were somewhat highly priced. Stop in for a beer if your girlfriend or wife drags you to New Hope. But whatever you do don’t suggest visting you will regret it.
A more neo-modern ambiance, more metallic than woodsy, than the typical tavern / brewpub atmosphere so the environment depends on your preference. Can go outside to the patio in nice weather which is cool. Haven’t tried entree’s though the appetizers have been inconsistent, both good & fair. Beer selection is their own on tap - love the coffee & cream stout. Gets rocking bands sometimes. Visit here and The River Horse in Lambertville when you’re in the area.
Somewhat pricey, but very good experience ambiance wise. Food was outrageous. Beer actually was the weakest part of the visit and I don’t mean that in a bad way. The beers are better than average it’s just that I’ve had better
Cool place near the RR tracks running through New Hope. And you can dine outside while watching the steam train coming and going. Beer is ok, and sometimes great, depending on what is on tap. Better beers are fall/winter/spring season. Food is a bit eccentric, but OK. The best part is the location.
We sat outside and enjoyed a tasty Simcoe IPA. Food was ok. Wasn’t really interested in the food as I was the beer. Seemed to be a pretty low key place, not over the top fancy but not a dive, right in the middle with lots of open space inside. It was quiet so not sure how the place holds up if it gets busy.
Large dark modern tavern looks. Touristy mall location. Gentle, enthusiast and proud (in a good way) service. No beers were really that impressive, but I’ve seen what they can do at GABF and I imagine the batch of impy just was not their best that day. It’s a nice stop for really bring on the way to Philly for us, but I wouldn’t go any special lenghts any more as this was one of my most anticipated brewpubs in the whole country.
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?
