This is an outstanding brewpub. Very clean with a nice downtown kind of rustic feel to this place. The entrance is the restuarant portion with an upstairs balcony for extra seating. In the back is the bar with windows into the brewery. I noticed the sanatation score was 100.5.
Quality of the place matches the quality of their beers. Nice tables and decor.
The service was outstanding. Our food and beer was prompt, our waiter was very nice. He gave me a one on one tour of the brewery, which I really appreciated.
The food is the best that I've had in a brew pub. I had the Hunter's Pie and it was outstanding. They also have a wild game sampler. The food is pricey which is why I gave three dollar signs for value. The beer is a good value at 3.50 a pint.
This is an outstanding place and should be a destination if you are ever anywhere close to Winston Salem.

Nice establishment. Service was great, the bartender was very helpful and knowledgeable. Offered samples. Also happened to have BA Sexual Chocolate on tap. The Turkey sandwich with Brie and Granny Smith apples was amazing. Will definitely recommend to anybody visiting the area.

I love Foothills! They have an awesome staff, hold great events/releases, provide a place for those looking to do bottle shares, and make great beer. I always look forward to visiting during SC/BASC releases.

Foothills is centrally located in downtown Winston. A large space from the outside grows even larger as you enter. It seems a little cookie cutter at first, looking like a lot of the new brewpubs opened in the early 2000s but as you look around that idea changes. The front room is cavernous with high ceilings, sparsely laid tables, and an upstairs seating area. Walking past this to the second area is the bar and bar seating. A longish bar off to the left seats, probably, 20, with a couple tap towers and a chalkboard at the end. A handful of hightops are spread throughout the much smaller, cozier room.

The bartender on my visit, a quiet night mind you, was super enthusiastic about beer. She got super excited when she noticed my buddy had on a Three Floyds shirt. She was quick to help, lend a comment, and pulled zero punches, just the way I like a bartender. Cool chick. The taplist was loaded with everything from Kolsch to IPAs of the month to Schwarz and even a couple barrel aged offerings. Every single beer I tried was delectable and I tried a good amount. Jasmine IPA and Bourbon People's Porter were standouts. Oh, the Schwarz was terrific as well.

I expected decent beer when I first walked in but not much else. What I got was great beer, a fun bartender, and a cool space. To top it all off the prices were insanely reasonable. I would go out of my way for a return trip to Foothills and probably will in the future.
