We ate at the FBC on our recent trip to Fredericksburg. I had the Reuben sandwich, a glass of Riesling, and a spinach salad, and my husband had the Brewer's Burger and the Not So Dumb Blonde Pale Ale. Everything was great. In fact, I had to ask for a to go box.

Didn't know that quite a few places were closed on Tuesday, so we just stopped in. The beer was fine, I had the Red Ale. My wife had a glass of Sister Creek wine which was also good. I ordered the Bratwurst sandwich which was ok. My wife ordered the Fish Taco (after being informed they were out of the... More

We dropped in for an early dinner on a Monday night. Seated and served right away; great service. I had the meatloaf plate and she had the Salmon salad...both delicious. The Carta Verde was terrific.

They just opened a Beer Garden which was super cool. We hung out there for about an hour watching the basketball playoffs. Great staff - super friendly. Very clean. We didn't eat there but the food did look awesome!

Visited this place and only had a short amount of time, and the staff were great at helping us to get a meal and get on to our next appointment. We tried the salted pretzel and cheese sticks appetizers as well as the ale soup; and they were all delicious!!! Plus it's cool to check out some of their beers... More

The brewery offers food and beer restaurant-style in the front and has an indoor beer garden with rows of tables in the back. It is large, the beer was good and the staff was friendly. Outside of the brewery doors you will find tons of little shops, wine tasting rooms and other breweries. There is enough to keep you occupied... More

We go to the Brewing Co. whenever we come to Fredericksburg. Our favorite is their Scotch Egg, which is difficult to find most anywhere else. They have a wonderful bier selection and good wines as well. It's just a fun place to grab a bite or a pint!!

After a full day of driving, my husband and I wanted to eat dinner at a casual pub downtown. This restaurant is easy to find and we chose it for the in-house-brewed beer. At around 6:30 PM on a Saturday night, we were pleased to be seated immediately and chose the only table at the window. Like many storefronts on... More

This restaurant has a limited selection of beers, which are brewed in-house. My wife and I had a red ale and lager, both which were superb. [Caveat: we are not beer connoisseurs, but recognize good taste.] For food, we did not have traditional German food, but typical American: Ale burger and Philly cheesesteak, both with fries. Food was fresh and... More
