Hi all,

I'm the Brewmaster at the Pump Station. I'm responding to Robin Inman's recent review describing poor service at our eastablishment. Since this site allows reviews with no way to contact the writer, I am forced to take up space here.

There is no excuse for the rude behavior you received, and for that I apologize. I do wish you had spoken to a manager or at least e-mailed us before writing a negative review on the internet, where it will likely persist long after the offending server has left our restaurant. We work hard to make every customer's experience a good one. If something is not to one's liking we will do our best to make it better, but we need to be told about the problem to act on it.

I hope that you give us another chance. If you would like to contact me directly, please visit www.EvansAle.com for contact information.

Hello all,

As the Head Brewer at the C.H. Evans Brewing Company I feel it necessary to correct a popular misconception, last stated in the review prior to this one. Neither Scottish Light nor Quackenbush Blonde are our best selling beers. Kick-Ass Brown, which fits into the style of an American Brown ale, is number one, with Pump Station Pale being a close second. The Blonde is third. The light beer is usually number 5 or 6 out of 7.

The beer drinkers here really appreciate full-flavored brews, and the hoppier, the better. I am quite pleased to brew for customers with such adventurous taste!

While there is never a wide variety of beer, there is always at least 1 or 2 worth drinking. The floorplan is cramped, especially at the bar, and the sofas are sorely missed. The level of smoke is VERY high; it was difficult for even the hops of Sierra Nevada Celebration to cut through. They should at least open a window!

I am the brewer at the C.H. Evans Brewing Company. I find it necessary to correct some inaccuracies in Steve Potter's review:

We have always sold beer in 16 ounce pint glasses. If you were served beer in an Imperial pint in the past, you were at a different place.

We almost always have pale ale, along with at least 7 other distinct beers, on tap. The pale ale does tend to sell faster than we can produce it, so it is occassionally unavailable for one or two days. The very hoppy brown ale is usually considered a fine substitute.

Anybody is free to not like the taste of our beer, but it is quite rude to post inaccurate information. Pubcrawler reviews without e-mail addresses are as good as anonymous, and should probably be regarded with suspicion. I wonder why they are even allowed.
