The beer is VERY hit or miss. Yuengling lager beats their mainstay - R5 lager - by leaps and bounds. My wife and I have been there several times now and have had, maybe, 2 or 3 really decent beers. Other than that, forget it. It's not finished properly and is under carbonated water for the most part. I have honestly let beers sit and left (which is a cardinal sin). The food, which is not their own, is good (as is the service and staff), but you can get that upstairs for takeout, which along with a six of Bud, would be better and cheaper. I hate to berate an establishment, and rarely leave a review, but they really do not know what they are doing. If you are in the Doylestown area and want to drink really fine hand-crafted beers, go to the Buck County Brewing Company (a couple miles away on 611 North). It will blow your mind. If you just want a watery flat pint and a pizza, it's OK, I suppose.

Doylestown Brewing has done it right. Amazing job. Started small with their beers throughout the area and now opened this great brew pub downstairs in the Main Street Marketplace. Offering a variety of food choices from the restaurants upstairs paired with their beer... what could be more perfect? Pizza and beer is my favorite. Variety of choices for all - both with food and beer styles. We stopped by on Sunday afternoon while out for a walk and loved the vibe. Downstairs in the Marketplace - with just the right lighting to provide a cozy atmosphere -. Industrial Chic. Good music playing, friendly bartenders. Plenty of open space. Cinn'ister Stout by far my favorite. Must visit if town for the night or if visiting the local breweries in Bucks County.... or like us just out for a Sunday afternoon walk.
