Stopped in after the first ski day of my season, at Cranmore. Friday afternoon, towards the end of the lunch rush. Plenty of tables in both bar, and dining room...
I was already liking the place before I walked in - the "ashtray/butt can" out front is hilarious! 55 gallon wooden barrel, with a purple toilet seat on top that reads: Put your butt here!
We sat in the bar. Jimmy G, our waiter, was prompt, attentive, knowledgeable & friendly.
Beers - I had an Iron Mike IPA(good, fresh & hoppy and soon will be in cans!), & a limited Double Bock(again, fresh & tasty). My friend had the limited Imp Stout, and said it was great as well.
Food was great & came out promptly. Potstickers, chicken Ceasar pizza & Cajun fries(AMAZING!)
Overall, great Brew Pub experience! Atmosphere, food, service, everything - it was all great! It is now my go to stop after skiing at Cranmore!

The Moat is a must visit if you're in the area. The beer offerings are widely varied, well crafted, and true to style. The menu is interesting and the food is very good. Although the place can get very crowded at times, the atmosphere is comfortable, the staff is attentive and the layout facilitates good service. Prices are reasonable.

Up in the Conway area for some weekend hiking and Moat turned out to be the perfect spot to refuel and recharge at the end of the day. This place is a brewpub and an inn, and it looks like it was converted from an old farmhouse. Very welcome, rustic feel as soon as you walk in the door. Lots of eclectic decorations throughout the different rooms. Very diverse menu of food, with a BBQ/TexMex feel overall, but some very unique combinations sprinkled throughout. The beer was tasty, and they have 6 regular taps going, with two seasonals. Beer to go is available, and the waitress said that growlers are $15 for the purchase and initial fill, and $9 for subsequent fills. Not too bad for pricing when compared to other breweries. Sampler paddles are also available if you just can't decide what you want. Our waitress was really nice and very prompt. Overall, from food to beer to service, we had a great time. Prices were not bad at all, and if we are ever in the area again, we would definitely swing by again. We even said that we may stay there some time, to see how the entire experience is. Worth a visit!

Located on Rt. 16 in the northern-most part of North Conway, N.H., this pub is in a stylish looking old converted home. Parking is limited so be prepared. The brewery is located in the cellar and the tops of the steel barrels can be seen as you enter the front door.
I sat at the bar even though there is a dining area. The bar was made of granite like the Granite State. It was slow when I arrived and the service was friendly enough but a little slow to greet me and take my order. You can buy five 5 oz samplers for $5 and there had 8 of their own beers on tap.
The menu is comfort food with a smoky twist. I ate the bison quesadilla and found it to be quite tasty. There are a few beers here that you currently cannot get in bottles/cans in NH stores and the prices are more reasonable here than in the stores. It is a pretty decent place to stop if you are in the area.

Stopped by this little brewery on my travles up to North Conway. Moat Mountain does not look like brewery or resturant at first glance. But it is a nice setting in an old farm house with fire places and many dining rooms. Host staff was not anything special at all, almost would have said they were rude. But the wait staff was good, they knew the in house beers well. I noticed the menu had a lot of BBQ items, and it was actually really good, I was surprised. usally BBQ up north here in New England isn't that great. The beer was great, I decided on a sampler with all the beers on tap that day from Moat Mountain. Cannot complain at all on the beers. If you are traveling up to the White Mountains I would make a point to stop here, it was not too pricey and food and beer was great. I will be going back myself soon to try some of the other beers they don't have on tap.

I've been here a few times over the years, we stopped here on the way home form Ebeneezer's and this review reflects that visit.
The restaurant is in an huge old restored farmhouse, there are rooms for rent upstairs with a bar area out back. Brew house is behind glass downstairs from the bar. We sat at the bar for a late lunch.
Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and our beers were solid if not unremarkable. For a place with smokehouse in the name you would expect to find great bbq, So that's what I ordered. I had a brisket and sausage chili which was the highlight of my meal.
The pulled pork platter came with mashed potatoes and cole slaw. The pork was slathered to the rafters in sweet sticky barbeque sauce but even underneath the sauce the meat seemed dry. The slaw was really nice and the taters were taters.
Typical resort town pricing a bit on the high side. I would go back and give them another shot, but this trip wasn't horribly impressive.

Quite a hike over the mountain from where we were staying in Lincoln, but well worth the drive. Big old building with quite a bit of work put in using recent years. Lots of white wainscoting and stainless steel accenting the light natural wood tones. Bar area looks fairly modern and is separated from the dinning area which consists of a handful of different rooms throughout the layout.
6 house beers on tap, all good to very good in quality and construction. The brown ale is not to be missed and the pale and wheat are right up there. A few guest taps and bottles to boot.
Menu has a mix of bar food and BBQ. The BBQ is smoked in the basement on premises and served with a light coating of sauce. The meat is fall off the bone done, but maybe a splash dry later in the day. Service was good but could have been more attentive on a slow night.
Overall the solid beers make it enough of a destination when in the area, and the very good food makes it as close to a must see as possible.

Located just outside of North Conway's main drag. A no-brainer for apres-ski or for stopping by after hiking.
The beers that they brew a pretty decent, with nothing too outstanding(with the exception of Iron Mike's Pale Ale). They have rotating in-house taps and a few guests. They also offer a mug club, so that you can identify locals/seasonal guests.
I always found the food to be above average, and that's with a presence of a cheap and quality tex-mex place on the other side of town(Cafe Noche).
They have redone the area behind the bar in the last few hours with brand new bathrooms and extra sitting area.

A > nice quaint place with the look of a house. the layout inside is pretty unique. the bar is nice and depending on what side your on you can see the brew kettles or holding tanks. Location is great up in the mountains of NH in North Conway. Cannot beat that.
Q > I thought the beer was very good. All were very fresh and clean. You can tell the brewers and staff truly appreciate the beer and want it at its best.
S > It seems everywhere i go when i order the keg is kicked. same here. the IPA was pouring half foam and the bartender was not going to give that to me. She was very good and you could see that they love their beer. All were knowledgable and respectful if you werent too up on your beers.
Selection > Great selection of the Moat beers. they covered every category and were very good and very fresh.
Value was spot on we did a 6 sampler bought 4 IPA cans and it was 28 bucks..not bad at all.

I stopped in on a trip to Mt Washington.
The beer was great. They had 5 beers on tap. Which could be ordered as a flight. I opted for pints. Weidsbeir was excellent (it's tough to find a good American Hefe these days). Pale ale isn't as hoppy as it is billed to be (but nice). They also distribute product locally in cans and bottles.
The food was not as good as the beer, but I think I didn't get the best thing on the menu, which was the BBQ Reuben (seemed to be a bit of a misnomer). My wife really liked the blackened catfish.
Nice looking place, you can see some of the brewery from the bar.
