We were headed for Ommegang but were early - they open at noon but Council Rock opens at 11 am. So we decided to stop to try their beer and we had heard their burgers were good. Are we ever glad we did. This is pretty much a family affair and we were fortunate to talk to two of them... More

My husband and I rented a house in the area for his birthday and we came across this gem on our travels. We stopped in earlier in the day on a Friday to try some of theirs beers. We ended up having their "fleet" of beers which were very tasty. We ended up coming back the same night to try... More

This is a cute, funky place with solidly good food...wonderful fish tacos, great burgers and some very tasty apps. The front bar room is an eclectic group of tables ( wish there would do away with the huge one and make two smaller ones). The large room in the rear has NO charm at all...needs to have the walls painted... More

Got seats at the bar which was small and cozy. There's also a back dining room that I never saw but people seemed to gets seated quickly. Had a flight with some atypical but good beer. A nice well rounded selection. Grabbed pints of our favorites and shared the Brie Burger which was phenomenal!!! Wish I lived closer so I... More

Stopped here on a whim while visiting Cooperstown. Quaint micro brewery...we weren't sure what to expect...we were blown away!!! Beer was great, we got 2 flights ( shared between 2 couples) there were 10. There was a beer that everyone enjoyed. The food blew us away!!! Burgers cooked to perfection, it's hard to get a burger medium rare. The garlic... More

Fast and friendly service. The fish chowder I had was savory and full of fish! The New York Ruben was made with genuine pastrami. The red potato salad was sumptuous and ample! Oh, And the beer was fabulous.
