This is a great little pub featuring more English Style Brews. I really enjoyed the brews here and this is a little different than traditional style American breweries.

Among the beer drinkers on our tour, this beer was not a favorite. We appreciate the uniqueness of the beer; however, I would have to consider this tasting just an experience. The staff was helpful, kind and accomodating.

We boated up the canal. Sadly the dock closest to the brewery is closed but we walked a few blocks from the other dock. The brewery is quaint. One owner did our tasting. We learned much about English brews. We tried all 8 varieties.

Would have stayed here all day if we weren't doing wine tours!!! Dave Smith was a gracious & informative host. Craft beer (& wine) available. In fact, he was brewing as we visited. So much warmth & knowledge in this place -- a must see!!!!

Great little spot tucked away against the canal. Really reasonable priced tasting and growler costs. We drove down from Geneva just to go here and it was worth it. The owners/hosts were very welcoming and willing to talk us through the tasting. Great, different beers...More
