Had some craft beer and a burger with fries. I felt the food and drink was average, nothing really special. People obviously enjoy this place since we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. Lots of people in office attire so appears to be a popular place for the local business workers to go for a meal

Always attracted to brew pubs and the building was a great renovated place. Even with a reservation, we had to wait a good bit to get seated. Service was friendly and efficient but some food came out cold. Had trouble getting drink refills. Menu didn't have a speciality or seem like it was give much thought. Trouble with just regular...

We love this place! The cool building overlooking the water and the bustling crowd make for a great time for a group. My daughter goes to UAlbany and we never miss a chance to go to our favorite place. The servers are awesome and the food is good. The selection of beer is great too. When in Albany go to... More

The atmosphere was awesome! The room with the fireplace had a lot of character. The brewery is a fun backdrop. Have been there for lunch and had good food and service. Dinner was a bit of a let-down. I had over-cooked sea bass and "rice pilaf" - really - rice pilaf? I thought maybe it would be a modern interpretation... More

Passed through Albany while on NYS trip and lucked into this cool place. Surprising wide ranging menu and high quality. And an on-site brewery as well. Casual, fun, quality - definitely stop in.

Very cool building and the food was great. Seriously the best nachos I've ever had. They also brew their own beers and have tours of the brewery. The oatmeal stout was delicious.

Have been here many times and always enjoy the decor, food and beer. One of Albany's most successful brew pubs housed in an old brick and industrial structure that is pleasing to the eye. Wide variety of food and apps which are always enjoyable. Some of the areas best local brews created in house on tap or to go.

I was in Albany for a soccer tournament so I swung by my oldest daughters college and picked her up for lunch. We were seated right away, and initially our service was good. We ordered pulled pork for 2 of us and a hamburger with Swiss and mushrooms for my other daughter. The food came out in 10 min! The... More
