With 70 taps and 50+ bottles, there aren't many people who won't find something new to drink here. Coming in through a pretty nondescript entrance from the street, the place has a pretty rustic vibe. It's mostly brick and wood, not polished but adding to the rustic vibe. It's the kind of place that has a mixed clientele, but the words carved into the table definitely says some college students go there pretty frequently. TVs are around but silent and out of the way, so to speak. There's a nice stained glass window splitting two areas. Service is good, quick and very helpful, and they know as much as any bar I've been to and more than most in Toledo. The tap list is huge, of course, and it's all craft. There's an impressive drink repertoire all around, including dozens of whiskeys and the like, and there's even an absinthe on the menu. One of my favorite things about the place besides the huge selection of great beer is that there are nitro taps at all times and always two beers on the beer engine. Ashley's is the kind of place I can't imagine thriving in Toledo but I wish was here somehow. Prices are really reasonable, so it's affordable to drink good stuff. I'll save the 5s for places with 100+ (very rare), but this place is close.

My absolute favorite place to have a beer. The atmosphere actually inspired the way I finished my basement. They've got the largest beer menu I've ever seen with dozens on tap and a few on cask. The service has always been great, and the waiters always know at least as much about beer as I do and can make a good recommendation of something I haven't had before.

The selection is nearly perfect, but they recently started focusing more on Michigan beers, which isn't entirely a bad thing, but I really enjoyed having Dogfish Head 90 and 120 on draft.

The food is definitely above average for a pub, my favorite is their specialty fries, particularly the pesto fries, but my friends love the stilton fries.

The beer is by no means cheap, but it isn't inflated either. I'm never "sticker shocked" when I get the bill.

Again, my favorite place to have a beer. It's not even close.

Ashley's is probably my favorite bar in the country. Perfect atmosphere to come hang out, grab a good beer with friends, have some good conversation, and have over 70 taps of great beer from across the country to choose from. The late night bar menu is good for snacking and even has some interesting stuff like chicken curry fries. I've spent countless nights here with friends and it's still great every time I come back.
