“Great local brew pub”

Kennett Brewing Company
Restaurant details
Reviewed 28 February 2016

Kennett Brewing is well off the road down a passageway and then downstairs; it could have been a speakeasy a few generations ago. There's nothing overly fancy here -- cracked concrete floors and a metal ceiling which upon closer inspection has some thoughtfully placed sound baffles. The menu is functional but limited. But you don't come here for gourmet food, you're here for the atmosphere and the beer, Kennett offers plenty of both. We wish we lived close to a brewery like this one. It has a "Cheers"-like feel that makes it easy to meet people if you want to. There are no mistakes in the eight house beers and some a re truly remarkable, especially given the size of their tiny brewhouse. We'll definitely be back. ---Bob & Ellie Tupper, authors, “Drinking In the Culture, Tuppers’ Guide to Exploring Great Beers in Europe.”

This English-style microbrewery has quickly vaulted into my #1 slot for microbreweries that serve food. The beer is great, the food is good for the money, and the selection is varied enough to have an appealing option for most.

I'd go five stars, but two things hold it back. It gets busy, and with limited seating, you can sometimes be stuck waiting 20+ minutes, or walking out. The other issue is the cost of growler refills. I got a growler of Head, Skull, Mind recently and it was $17 for just the beer. Pretty pricey. Otherwise, I love this place.

Well prepared and thought out pub food. If you are looking for casual fare this will fit the bill. I like that the chef pays attention to detail and puts his or her touch on a suace, soup, or sandwich. Usually I don't really go for pub style menus bit this really was tasty. Well done.

Decided to go here for dinner while staying at a local b&b, since we had visited the wineries during the day. This place was small but cozy -- there was live music on the night we were there, with coloring books and crayons for those of us who like to doodle while waiting for food. :) We each ordered a tasting flight and therefore got to taste all 8 beers on the menu that night -- they were all extremely good! Ordered dinner and dinner did not disappoint either - everything was fresh and high quality - I highly recommend if you're looking for a slightly different atmosphere from the normal Kennett Square/Chadds Ford restaurant.

Stopped here for drinks with friends after dinner in Kennett Square. The beer was tasty and great atmosphere. Only problem was that it was very loud and you couldn't have a conversation.
