    I just played my first ever Penticton solo acoustic show here tonight and I think this might just be the best set up brewery for live music that I've seen. Big stage, massive room, upstairs and downstairs were well set up and the food looked great going by (I didn't have a lot of time to try the food unfortunately). Ben was easy to deal with for bookings, Kelsey, Reese, Autumn and Ian made an out of town guy like me feel right at home. 6 out of 5 stars for service and beer, and 10 out 5 stars for musicians looking to stop through town!

    We love this place for our go-to date night, hot day beer, need a treat, need to get out of the house...any reason really to chill out, play a game, eat some delish food & drink some great beer. The atmosphere is always great. You'll feel so good spending your money in a local place where the owners greet you & make sure you feel like a friend. Don't miss out! PS their spicy sauce is better than ANY spicy sauce out there. Get it on everything!

    I was encouraged by ownership to leave this review for a recent visit to this establishment. They advertise as being a kid friendly location, which is very far from it. Kids are welcome until 8pm. Regardless of all their information stating 9pm. No signs stating any different. They host theme nights, which could be fun for the whole family. But not here! The Frontline staff was very rude, including management. Kept making excuses for mistakes being made and then when things didn't go how they wanted. Told us never to come back! Trust me, we are local and will NOT support this so called family owned kid friendly establishment! I'm sorry my rating does not describe the interactions, I am better than that! I don't want to embarrass myself as their staff did!
