If you like beer, this is your place. If you are looking for good service and good food, you should go somewhere else. 3 of us stopped in (due to several recommendations) about 1.5 hours before closing. Only 4 other people in the whole restaurant. Service was extremely slow and the food was not even usual fast food caliber. Just... More

Life does not get much better than this! I had two wonderful evenings at the Chelsea alehouse drinking their beer and trying their food. The soup changes daily -- I have been there on three separate days -- and been extremely happy with the soup three times ($5.00). The main courses are limited to appetizers, dips, flatbreads, and sandwiches, but... More

The craft beer here is great, always a great selection. The food is fresh and tastes great. They have a bluegrass band every Wednesday night and it gets quite busy.

Went out the other night for the entertainment. They had a Bluegrass group playing and the place was packed. The music was played at a level you could actually have a conversation with. Had two of their IPA's and they were quite good. Will definitely go back and sample the menu.

Tucked into downtown Chelsea, this brewpub offers welcoming staff, good pub food, friendly local clientele, a variety of excellent brews, and live music 3 to 4 nights a week. Creative Bluegrass combo the night I was there playing old standards as well as inventive covers of popular songs (Meghan Trainor bluegrass style?!?). If it were in my hometown, I would... More

We were looking for some place quick and close to where we were visiting and chose Chelsea Alehouse. We were not disapointed. The BBQ was delicious and the service was excellent.

I like brewery's but my husband does not to much. He went and I ended up drinking the two ciders they had. Both were very good and my husband found a beer to his liking. Would stop again.

Stopped in on my way home to refill an empty Howler & Growler. This place is amazing and will return for food. Bar staff answered all my questions and provided a sample of bier. Settled for their IPA to drink at home. Well, the IPA was great with a distinct hoppy tasted. Don't believe me, stop in and check them... More

Stopped for lunch at this alehouse/microbrewery and loved it! I had a 4 oz. of the Little Jaunty Woodsman IPA and enjoyed the flavor. I would have sampled more but was driving solo. I ordered the Cuban sandwich and it was decidedly the best Cuban sandwich I have ever had. I think their mojo sauce was the perfect dressing for... More

In the clock tower area of a quaint town We only had two appetizers to share - the smoked trout and nachos. We loved the trout - well done. We shared a sample flight of all of their on tap beers. We quite enjoyed the scotch ale and the ginger pale ale, but we enjoyed all of their selection available.... More
