I started going to Lafayette Brewing Co before we started home brewing and before we started our appreciation for craft beer.

Through the years we've changed in our food tastes (from fish and chips to their lighter dinner salads/entrees) and our beer tastes (from "grab us something" to "Any cask conditioned beers today?"). We've watched the kitchen staff change, and the people working on brewing their beer change.

I've brought the kitchen staff loads of candy on Halloween. I've bonded with waitstaff about things as diverse as online games, big weird dogs and dealing with other customers. I've seen the same core waitstaff there for years, which is exceptional in such a fluid industry.

So, where I'm going with this is that, I can't be neutral about LBC. Though our experiences and memories associated with a place always color our reviews, I'm REALLY not neutral in this case.

The beer is good to very good - I prefer maltier beers generally and theirs don't disappoint. The opening of People's Brewing Company in town really upped their beer selections, I think they're branching out and their recent beers (Oatis Brown, the Bumpyface agave beer) have been excellent.

The food perception depends on what you like and how you like to eat. I avoid a lot of wheat, and fat/fried things - so there's not always a lot here for me. That being said, I always find something that I want, and always enjoy it muchly. =) Their smoked meats are exceptionally good, as are almost all of their soups. Two things that are so easy to mess up.

On Thursdays they sometimes have their upstairs open and have their pizza. Their pizza is *quite* good. If you happen to arrive when there is a show upstairs, generally it's an interesting band that offers something different. Go see them. =)

If you are looking for good, and very well respected beers along with good food and some interesting conversation, head to Lafayette Brewing Company.

Everything you need in a brewery. Excellent selection of beers, none of which I've ever been disappointed by. Delicious food that doesn't cost too much. The bar has great atmosphere. This place has become the gold-standard for me - hence the 5.
