Beer Quality Beer Selection Food Service Overall
Good Great Great Great Great
I'll start with the one negative (which they handled well): As I was not familiar with the brewery (last visit about 15 years ago to their original place), I chose the sampler. The first beer I tasted was badly infected (thin, sour, and hazy). I mentioned this to our waitress who gave us the usual hooey (nobody else has complained, the bartender tasted it and it's fine, etc) but did report it to the manager.

About 5 minutes later, the manager stopped by our table to thank me for telling them. The keg was replaced, the lines flushed, and a fresh sample brought to me. Quite tasty. (In customer service training, they teach that you don't judge a company by what they do when everything goes right but what they do when things go wrong. This was a good recovery from a problem.)

Anyway, the beers were all tasty and without apparent brewing flaws. They were served a bit too cold (certainly common enough in this country) but warmed up soon enough. To stand on its own, I found the Celtic Rose the best of the lot. With food, the Milk Stout paired superbly with the crab stuffed trout (fileted with the skin intact) and the fest was excellent with the spice-rubbed pork tenderloin.

The only clunker, from a style perspective, was a beer described as a helles using Bavarian hops. I was rather surprised at the grapefruity-ness of Cascades. Not a bad beer but still a shock to a palate expecting a German flavor.

They had 2 beers which used rye in the grain bill. The Amish Four Grain (malt, rye, oats, and wheat) was okay but had so much going on that I found it ultimately non-descript. The other (name currently escaping me) spoke of a hint of rye and was, in fact, a very good rye ale.
