We value quality, dependability, improvement, and innovation. We believe these values matter most to the people drinking the beer. We believe every part of how our beer is treated should reflect these values and that when they do, we are not only making our beer better, we're pushing the beer industry at large to do better.

Same chefs as IS but even kid burgers are just slopped on plate with undercooked frozen fries. If asked for well done , they refry the ones you send back! Ahi was good but $24 in a beer place is stretching? Really good , short menu of basic food would be a great asset to HenHouse and Fairfax. PS: they asked for comments on food!

But the meal was maybe a 5 out of 10. We had a salad and asparagus which were good, but the burgers were served plain with "tomato preserves and seasonal trimmings" which consisted of a piece of lettuce, pickled vegetables that were too chunky to put on the burger and I guess the preserves was ketchup? The grilled cheese didn't come with any savory jam as far as I could tell/taste and the fries were cold. Overall it was a disappointment and we probably won't eat there again.

Chef Alex has really brought something for everyone! And it’s awesome! You need to show proof of vaccination to eat inside, and if you don’t have that you can eat outside. Keeping everyone healthy. Service is friendly, and wonderful. There is a whole new area called the lounge for more intimate seating, or family style .. all very open and inviting…. It’s new so changes will continue. Check them out!

GH gets them right at half the price. The word on the street is many locals are not impressed. It’s going to take time for them to get this one right if they can.

Staff still learning about setting tables and food and beer menus. Beer was good as expected. Food was served quickly but under seasoned and over cooked. Last call 8:30pm and lights on by 9:15 for closing. We had large group and tried most items. Appetizers were better than entrees. Lots of veggie choices. Excellent mushrooms throughout various items. Will likely try again but might give it a couple months. Overall miss Iron Springs but hopeful Henhouse will learn from feedback.

I'm somewhat hearing deficient so noise make it difficult to pick up a conversation amid the noise. We sat in the main room. I hear there is a lounge but we didn't look at it.

They have a variety of table settings that work for different groups and the food is divine. We ate the Fairfax Toast, the Best Life Mussels, and the warm apple gallette. All were delicious. The Fairfax toast is a wonderful starter. The mussels are flavored with fennel and leeks which were delicious to scoop up along with the mussels. The shell fish were decorated with saffron rouille which added both an enticing flavor and also a striking appeal to the presentation. The dessert of warm apple Gallette looked elegant and tasted sublime. The ambiance of this restarant was inviting for both intimate meals and larger friend and family gatherings with seatings that were quiet as well as long benches for large gatherings.

The waiting staff were very attentive. There is a great collection of different beers. I had two different imperial stouts which were delicious. The food menu is waay more unique and tasty than what you'll find at a regular brewpub. The hamburger was good but amazingly the meatless brat was very tasty. We are coming back for sure!
