The owner and brewmaster of The Village Vintner previously made only wine at his original location, but has expanded to a full service restaurant and brewery. They have six house beers permanently on tap, but also routinely rotate in smaller seasonal batches throughout the year.

My favorites:
Scottish Ale- A hearty, malty, rich Scottish style ale... really tasty.
Hoprocket IPA- A very hoppy double IPA that packs a punch (8.2% ABV), but not with the usual bitter finish... very drinkable.
Double Oat Stout- A smooth and creamy stout that goes well with anything. Mix with a small portion (25%) of their Vanilla cream ale for change-up in flavor.

They are working on a small batch Imperial Stout aged in rye whisky (Templeton) barrels that will supposedly be ready in February... very much looking forward to trying this one.

As for serving sizes- they offer beer tasting paddles in 4 or 6 glasses (4oz), 16oz and 23oz mugs. They also have growlers for take home/take out.

Definitely worth the visit... and don't fear dragging the wife/girlfriend, as they make some excellent wines as well (not to mention a very good restaurant).
