McKenzie Brew Pub
Anyone ever been? We love brew pubs like Victory, Stoudts, Iron Hill and the General Lafayette. Thanks for the input!
It's inferior to all of those. One beer of theirs won some kind of award recently, I had one there and it was decent but not good enough to warrant a trip there just for that. The food is not as good as any of the four places you mention (though General Lafayette is pretty close, and not in a good way).
Given a choice between a "crap on tap" place and McKenzie's I'd choose the latter at the drop of a hat. But for me it is the least memorable of all of our local brewpubs. For instance, I know that I hate Noddinghead and dislike Triumph at New Hope (oddly, Triumph Philadelphia is great). But despite having been to McKenzie's at least a half dozen times I'm left with no impression of the place. That's not good.
Sunday brunch at McKenzie Brew Pub is fun. We went there for Father's Day 2007 and I wasn't disappointed in the least. It could be that I'm not all that picky but, after a few Bloody Mary's, their Smoked BBQ Chicken Quesadilla (cheddar cheese, bell peppers, salsa, guacamole, sour cream), and an order of Huevos Rancheros (fried eggs, corn tortilla, ranchero sauce, spicy refried beans garnished with guacamole & sour cream) I was more than satisfied as far as "pub grub" is concerned.
Next time I go I'll review it as a brewery. Hope they'll have some kind of IPA on tap.
P.S. -- Rest in peace to its former restaurant, Cafe la Grande, which had great all-you-can-eat crab leg nights and was a memorable place for various family events in my life ...

They didn't have an IPA when you went for Sunday brunch? I kinda of recall the same thing occuring when I went. To me a pale and an IPA should be standard these days (along with a stout, brown, belgian style and a lager).
