Looks pretty much like you'd expect from a house turned into a restaurant and brewpub. Different rooms for the different sections. The floor is cut away in part so the brew tanks can go from the cellar to the 1st floor. Weird tables that look like shallow sinks from a 1950's kitchen.
Weiss, blueberry wheat, Dunkel weiss, Pilsner, Iron Mike Pale Ale, Brown, Stout and Maibock on draft. $3.25 a pint, $4 for an imperial pint.
Food consists of BBQ, burgers and mexican. Service is all right, tag team style where whoever comes by is your server, it gets slow even if the place isn't crowded.
Worth the visit in the North Conway area.

If your anywhere in the N. Conway area, this is a must stop, if only because they have the only fresh brewed beer in the area. It's a great resturant, very "homey" ( of course, that's probably because it used to be someone's home ) With a 5 year old in tow, we were put in the "kids" room, which is a great idea so those without kids can eat in peace. The service was excellent, the food was endless. 2 kinds of chilli, 5 kinds of nachos, quesadillas, salads, burgers, great sandwiches, wood grilled pizza, lots of BBQ meats and fish. Everything we had was excellent, even the kids chicken fingers were better than most. 6 beers on tap, weiss, lager, pale ale, brown, stout and a mai bock. Guest taps were Smutty IPA, Bass, Guiness, and Coors light. Bottle selection was all macros and Tuckerman's pale. I had the beer sampler so could only do a cursory tasting. All the beers seemed a bit thin in body, but made up for it in taste. The weiss and lager were good, the pale had a nice hoppiness to it but again, kinda thin. The mai bock and stout were standouts, with the stout having a really pleasent bitterness and a smokey malt flavor.
Again, if your anywhere in this area, it's worth a stop in.

A big white house conveniently located on the white mountain highway. Top two floors are inn rooms that were full even upon my summer visit. Family-oriented friendly place. Many different rooms have a lot of tables that were also all full when I visited, but the wait was only 20 minutes. Those minutes were passed in the bar area, which has a view through big glass windows of the brewhouse in the basement.
Most of the place is colorful and bright. The room where I ate dinner had a big blue mountain/water mural around it.
I was surprised to find a number of German styles on the beer menu, which included seven house beers and five guest taps. About 20 different bottles were offered, mostly crap but had the super local Tuckerman's Pale Ale. The house beers were a weiss, a dunkel weiss, pils, vienna lager, a maibock, a pale ale, and a brown. Guest taps were guiness, Smutty IPA and barleywine, Bass, and some other one.
House brews were nice, nothing spectacular.
Food menu made my mouth water - a lot of flavorful plates including nachos, BBQ, etc. Most things in the $7-$10 range, some entrees were more. I had a BBQ pork sandwich which was good as well as the fries and pickle that came with. Our waitress was very pleasant, helpful, and answered my questions knowledgably.
Overall a cool place to be. Nothing really amazed me about the place, but everything was good enough for me to want to go again.

Worth a visit to North Conway in its own right (although I was at the Fryeburg Fair, but now I know better). Great old house with a big porch, barroom and spacious indoors. White Mountians out the windows, brewery through the floor and a baseball game at the bar. Solid, tastey brews. Six brews at the time: lager, pilsner, wheat, brown, stout and pale (the porter sounded great, but unavailable). The service at the door, bar and table were all fantastic. The food was great for carnivores and vegatarians alike. It was all great, I am beaming just thinking of it! Cheers!
---I have visited the Moat a few more times, now as a resident of NH. The food just keeps impressing and I finally have enjoyed the porter. Well worth the trip when I have a day off
Enjoy again and again

Visited on a Wednesday around Noon, so there wasn't much of a crowd. Enter through a side door, and to the right is a long island bar. The brew kettles on the lower floor are visible nearby, and simple folding chairs and tables are set up around the bar as well. Nice view out to the mountains. A large adjacent dining area has nicer decor. Sat at the bar, which is made of a long slab of granite (or similar...). They had 8 home-brewed biers on tap, with 4 guest biers (Magic Hat, Bass, Guinness...) and about 10 bottle offerings. I started with a sampler of all 8 biers for $8.00. Regular pints are $3.25 for 16oz, or you can get 20oz for $4.00. The biers were all decent, though nothing blew me away. The bartender was friendly and attentive, and chatted me up a bit when he saw me taking notes. Had a Blue Cheeseburger, which was tasty and enormous, with a huge side of Cajun fries. It made for quite an enjoyable lunch. I will definitely return, especially to try some BBQ and more biers! Prosit!!

I remember when Vicky left her place behind the bar at the Great Lost Bear in Portland. The place made commemorative T-shirts for her, she was that linked to it. She and her husband were opening a restaurant and brewery in North Conway...
Cut to a couple of years later, and I'm a believer. Delicious barbecue fare plus ideas like spicy peanut chili and barbecue nachos (yes, it does work, even with sausage.) The best wheat beer for the fan of banana-clove flavors in their wheat. A few guest taps, showing that everyone in the brewing world up there can co-exist (Yay, Tuckerman Pale.) Good track lighting, plenty of seating options (bar, restaurant, screen porch) and a massive parking lot.
A must stop for the brewpub fan who wants an original take on the form.

The Moat Mountain Inn & Brewery is a great place to grab some lunch or dinner and enjoy some fine beer when visiting North Conway. They offer some great BBQ selections and I find the pulled pork sandwiches are fantastic. When I was there they had 7 different brews on tap. The bear peak brown was my favorite due to its full body and malty flavor. If you are there on a clear day ask to be seated on the porch so you can enjoy the view of Mt. Washington off in the distance.

A great place for lunch or apres ski/golf/hike/mt.bike, etc...The only brewpub in the Mount Washington Valley. A great selection of Ales, Lagers, Stouts and Porter. Great wraps, sandwiches and bbq stuff. Also have great spicey curley fries and yam fries. You can also bring home a growler of their fresh beer. A must stop when your up there in the north country. I like eating at the bar and hearing locals bitch about the traffic...
