It's been awhile since I've been here, and years since I ate here.

My wife and I took some old friends to the Brewing Co. when they were visiting from Virginia.

A big positive about this place is it's smoke-free. Other beer bars in town allow people to smoke. Since this is a restaurant, Florida law requires them to ban that nasty habit.

We forgot that it was the NCAA men's basketball tournament when we arrived about 6 on a Saturday evening. This is a sports pub, with many, many TVs. We had to wait at least an hour for a game to end. Once it was over, the fans streamed out and we got a table. There were still games going on and a nearby table of four obnoxious fans (of two schools) kept screaming thoughout our meal.

Our waitress was busy, but did a decent job, considering.

I was very impressed by their IPA, which is the best beer I've had at the brewing company: Nice and hoppy and bitter.

All of us enjoyed our food, which is pretty typical brewpub fare: burgers (cooked to order), barbecue ribs, and grouper sandwiches. My blackened grouper sandwich was good. A standout are their sweet potato french fries. Make sure you order them instead of regular fries with your meal.

The value is always good. All six of us ate, with four beers (we're not all drinkers) for about $90.

If you're looking for fresh beer in Sarasota, this is the only place to go, and it's worth a visit.
