I knew that this was a brewery but did not expect so few beers from others. Lot of strange stuff and listing not well organized. Maybe 10 people in the place. The checking of ID's at this place goes beyond absurd. My wife and I...More

Two of us walked from Hilton Bayfront to Monkey Paw. Was longer than expected, but we'll worth it. Building looks a bit depressed from the outside, but everything inside is fine.

Great beer selection and very good cheesesteaks. Very small, and can get crowded quickly. Off the beaten path, but worth a trip.

Superb beers, the reward is well worth the adventure of finding the place. Great beer range. A little brewery that beats the big boys hands down
