Just on a road trip nd had to hit up the only brewpub that shows up in Lubbock! First off, I had all 6 beers as tasters and I have to say I'm impressed. All are very classic styles and very well done. The pale is nice and a bit hoppy (at 54 ibu), but the piece de resistance is the Dagger Tongue IPA. It's pretty classy. I had the Buddy Holly mushrooms which are ok. Fried mushrooms, but good sauce. The atmosphere is great and the staff is amazing. They have tips for stuff to do in town, know their beers, and are some of the most personable people I've met in a while. Texas hospitality, right? If in town, definitely roll thru.

Its been awhile since I've been here so I'm going to do a small review from the best of my abilities. When we went here i was surprised to find out that Lubbock is a dry county. How they have a brewpub is beyond me. And it turns out there are 2 new places in town too. But anyway. The beer here was good from what I remember. We got the sample platter as we always do and it came out with 5 beers in little mini mugs. I thought that was cool. Beer was refreshing and delicious. Nothing to spectacular though. I don't remember how much the sampler was and I didn't buy a pint so I can't say how much they are.

The food was good. Nothing too out there. It is a steak house so expect steak house prices. I thought they were slightly overpriced however when it came down to the food.

Atmosphere was nice. Not a super fancy place but a nice place. Jeans and T's probably welcome as that was what I was wearing and I didn't get looked at funny. Well lit and plenty of seating.

Service was good though I don't remember the server saying a whole lot. Just the normal talk between server and served. No small talk. Nothing wrong with that though. No complaints about the service.

Plenty parking in their parking lot outside, but then again I did go right about opening time so I have no idea how busy the place gets.

Overall, this place on a first impression was good. I didn't see anything unnatural and no one did anything to upset me. Food was good and beer was better. I'd recommend to those that like beer that are passing through to check them out.

Beer selection: Good, particularly considering it's a dry town and this is the only brewpub around. Not a lot of high-gravity offerings, but the Dunkelweizen and spiced strong ale I had were both excellent. The Koelsch was likewise very good, though not really to style (too malty, missing that traditional Koelsch fruitiness). I understand that the owners kept the brewmaster from the old brewpub (Hub City) and I can see why.

Atmosphere: The emphasis seems to be more on the chophouse and less on the brewery. That being said, I would call it sort of an upscale casual. Nice but nothing too unique.

Service: This is where they screwed the pooch. They didn't have any description of their beers, so when I asked what their 6.1% "Winter Wheat" was, I was told it was a mix of their regular wheat and a stout. Um, no. Maybe others disagree, but I expect a server at a brewpub to be able to at least tell me the correct style of a beer. And if you don't know, ask somebody else; don't just make stuff up. Overall the staff seemed to be college kids (not unexpected in Lubbock) who were only going to do the minimum to draw a paycheck.

Food: Their steak selection was small for a chophouse, and the ribeye I had was mediocre by Chicago standards, let alone Lubbock standards. My friend's smoked porkchop didn't meet the description (applesauce is not the same as baked apples). Given the price, and the plethora of great steakhouses in West Texas, I was expecting much more.

Overall: Stop by for beers at the bar (and/or take a growler to go), and go grab dinner somewhere else.

This is the place to get beer in Lubbock. Really, its a dry county so either you get a growler here or drive out of town to the Strip and get price gouged. The beer is good and they have a wide variety of styles changing on a fairly often basis. It's a nice place to sit outside and have a pint, grab a seat at the bar and watch the game while scarfing down Snake Bites or take home a growler or party pig. So if you find yourself thirsty after your visit to the Buddy Holly Museum, walk next door and get a cold one.
