Rich Horton, in Fantasy Magazine, says, "Some of these stories seem rushed or rudimentary. Some lean a shade too much on a presumption of familiarity with the novels featuring the stories’ characters." He continues, "But there is a fair amount of enjoyable fiction here as well."[1]

BSCreview reviewer, amberdrake [sic], says, "For the most part, this anthology was highly entertaining", and "definitely worth picking up, especially if you like stories about witches or if some of these authors are your favorites".[2]

Strange Brew won Honorable Mention in the Pearl Award for best anthology, 2009.[3]
