Great little place for local brewed beers and to hangout with friends in the evening. If you want to try a bit if everything, get a flight and enjoy all the flavours! Food here is so-so but who cares, you're there for the drinks and board games! Or giant Jenga!

Good beer - nothing particularly stood out & we didn't fill our growler, but the ambiance was really nice. A gas fireplace, which would be especially nice in colder months & what we really liked was the selection of board games - they really want you to come & hang out here : ) Prices were good, instead of a flight price, beers are $2 for a 6oz, which comes in slightly bigger than a usual flight glass. PS. there's also a coffee bar.

Best area in the region to have a beer in the taproom. They have some food but let you bring your own or order in. Frindly staff. Arrive early since seats are very limited.

I stopped in for lunch and found no food, what is that!! A 'PUB' with no food, just snacks?
After my first reaction I sampled the beer and yes they were way above average but beer goes down so well with actual food.... Come on people if you call yourself a 'pub' then get with the menu and serve food!!
I would probably would have rated this place above average as the decor, staff and especially the beer were excellent. But the lack of food drew the rating way down.

I like this place, it had great beer, friendly service, super affordable if you fill up growlers for sure!
The only criticism is they don't serve much food, just pretzels and salami sort of things. You can order take out there from other places...but c'mon, if they'd do a couple gourmet burgers, pulled pork or some such fare they'd be a goldmine...i'd be there way more often! So much easier to drink beer when eating!
