I went to the ABC after Mighigan's beatdown of uconn. I figured I'd get a growler refill. The place was busy, as would be expected after a game. I went to the back bar and had an ipa and an Irish stout. The front bar is copper, while the back bar is wood. I liked being surrounded by UM fans celebrating a victory.

There were no exceptional beers on tap, but it was a decent selection. I like the cask conditioned ipa served at 58 degrees. The bartender was very busy, so I did not have much of a chance to chat other than to place my order. It is a quality establishment that I have gone to on a couple of occasions. It is definitely worth a stop.

Nice selection of house drafts and bottles, also have some guest taps. Service was.......bad. Empty glasses sat as I wished for another beer, food order was not put in by our waitress (she did apologized for this). Food finally arrived, warm at best. All in all not impressed by beer, food, or service. I am by far a patient person but if this place was in my hometown it would be a one and done experience.

My wife and I stopped here to see the results of their remodeling and to experience this brewery for the purposes of this review. We've been here many times before but have never written a review. This was also the first stop of an afternoon pub crawl. We had lunch and a sampler flight of 6 beers knowing that we couldn't have any more than that with three more pubs to visit.

All of the beers that we chose are also available in bottles on store shelves, so we were disappointed that there were no pub-only options. However, we had not previously had one of the beers, the pilsner, so we made it a point to choose it. We have always liked Arbor's beers, and today was no exception. All were what we remembered them being, and the pilsner was one of the best that we've had at a craft brewery. Aside from the 6-packs of their regular beers that are in a cooler for carry-out sales, there were also several specialty beers available in 750 ml. bottles, and we chose to purchase the sour version of their 20th anniversary barleywine. We're looking forward to popping that cork.

The food has always been very good here, and our lunch selections were no different. The menu has changed a bit since our last visit several years ago (a more healthy, organic theme), and the new choices are what we focused on for our lunch.

We go back a ways with our appreciation for this pub, and today's visit further cemented our desire to continue to support this brewery.

This was a quick stop drank 2 pints. One a very meh sour and a nice chili porter. Service was self service to the bar. The bar tender was a bit slow. The selection was what was expected with a couple positive bumps. The food I did not try. We used to have an option for N/A. So I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say food is at least average and edible.
