I wish that Duclaw would take 5 of their main beers and make them great instead of continuing to brew a new mediocre beer what seems like every month. I usually go on Tuesdays because it's all day happy hour. I have been to a couple of their beer releases which is pretty fun but as you can expect extremely crowded. Mainly I continue to go here for the food which is probably the best part about this place. As someone else mentioned the blueberry BBQ wings are awesome.

I was here in the afternoon on a Friday when I had off from work, so the vibe was low-key at the time and I plan on going back in the evening at some point; maybe when they have a release or something. Good selection on tap and I was able to try their Mosaic Red IPA as well as their blood orange IPA, both proved to be solid brews. The service was fine, not sure where all the negative reviews are coming from but perhaps it came from times where they were super crowded or something. Only had the appetizers, which were fried mac and cheese balls, anything fried is usually good with me.

Overall, felt more like your typical restaurant than a real brewpub.

Food was actually pretty good. The service is a WHOLE different issue though. I've been to other DuClaws and haven't had this problem. Have loved the other DuClaws, I won't be back to this one.

Food was awesome, wings with blueberry bbq sauce super! Had a sampler of 21 brews that had a full range of what they had on tap. Great experience and at no point felt rushed!

Next to pouring my own beer and cooking my own food, I can't imagine their service being worse. There have been plenty of times in the past 8 years that I would have loved to try a new beer, but that would have required the staff to respond. The beer can be interesting, but the service is awful and hasn't improved for years. Buy their beers at a store and skip the poor showing of their ability to carry a brewpub. It is truly a shame because the beers and menu would be incredible if they could hire someone that knows how to run a bar.
