Have been here multiple times and although the limited food menu and the selection of IPA's are good, each time the service has gotten progressively worse. We sat outside on an unusually warm Saturday afternoon in February, and after our party of 5 sat there for 5 minutes we asked one of the servers if we could be helped. We... More

Came here last week to check it out. Being craft beer lovers and foodies this place was the best of both. Great unfiltered beer. Nice atmosphere. Much smaller then pictured. A must try if in Ambler

Our table was ready at the time of our reservation, which was a good thing since the bar area is tiny and there was standing room only. The atmosphere is of an old house so it is very cozy and warm...in a friendly way. Very short food menu, which I LOVE b/c you have a better idea that the food... More

I brought some friends since we had some time to kill before dinner at a local restaurant and we had some great beers! The place is a little small if you're just swinging in for drinks, so it's hit or miss as to whether you'll get some standing room or how long you'll have to wait for a beer. Otherwise... More

Great brewery right outside Philadelphia. Converted house turned into a brewery. Great food and even better IPA's.

Stopped in over the Thanksgiving holiday. Managed to grab the last seat at the bar and settled in for some food and a few beers. Great little place. Had a couple of good IPAs (Opiconsivia and Opalia) and an ok porter (Wojtek). Only had a couple of appetizers - the hand-cut fries (definitely try these) and the onion rings (pass... More

I always love the beers here, I've been craving them since our last visit! I had the Banjo (that was my favorite from this visit) and the Tau. My husband had the Jump Kick and Liminality. I like that they have a 10 oz pour, although it is not listed on the menu as an option. Better to be able... More
