Spent the MLK weekend in North Conway and stayed at the inn at the Moat Mtn. Smoke House & Brewery. I had heard they had good beer and the rooms were cheap but I had no idea how great the food and beer would be.
We were absolutely thrilled with it all. The fresh brewed beer is top notch. When we were there they were serving a porter, lager, weiss, pilsner, and pale ale in addition to other beers they do not brew. The pale ale is one of the best I have ever had, absolutely perfect, full body with a nice hoppy finish. 20 oz. beers are just $3.50.
On to the food... We ate there three days in a row. We learned on our first day there that they have a good rep for their nachos, and for good reason as they were amazing. We tried the Sante Fe and the Smokehouse nachos. Both were terrific. They serve them on a great big cookie sheet. They are absolutely a meal. All of the fixings were fresh and good quality. My only complaint was that the side of guacamole wasn't very fresh, the avocado had started to turn.
The other nights we enjoyed BBQ. I love southern BBQ, this was not quite southern but it was very very good. The homemade BBQ sauce drizzled over their excellent St. Louis ribs was thick with a little heat and a wonderful apple taste. It was quite good. I love vinager on my BBQ and unfortunately there was none to be had. Everything is smoked; chicken, beef, and pork. If you like smoked meats you'll love this place. The brisket and pulled pork were wonderful.
If you're heading up to hit the slopes this season, it might be worth checking out. Rooms are only $49 a night!
