I'll have to admit that I'm pretty partial to Peaches. The first time I ever went was before they expanded it and it was just a small restaurant/bar/drive thru. I remember my boyfriend ordering a Great Lakes Edmond Fitzgerald on draught (I wasn't of legal drinking age at the time) and sneaking me sips of it. It was one of those building blocks into the loving world of micros for me. Wow. I remember it being the most delicious thing i'd ever had! Since then they've expanded the building, and it now has a much larger bar and seating area, a covered patio, and a stage for bands. The ambiance is down to earth and colorful, and so are the people you'll find inside. They have 20 something craft brews that honestly do not rotate all that often, but are decent in terms of what Ohio can get. Peaches has awesome "bar" food, and really caters to vegetarians. I've tried the ceaser salad, a few different burritos, and the pitas and hummus dips appetizer, all of which were very yummy IMO. I'd rather eat that kind of stuff over unhealthy hamburgers and deep fried anything anyday, although it is far from "gourmet". But, Peaches isn't "that" kind of place and that's one of the charming aspects of it. Service can be slow, but it's always been friendly, and the staff seems to be pretty knowledgeable in the beers they carry. Peaches is a great place to go on a sunny relaxing afternoon. Have a walk around town or thru the park and then settle at Peaches and sit out on the patio with good friends and good beers.

Vibe: This place is located right at the junction of Route 68 and the Little Miami Scenic Trail. They have some outdoor seating in the front and seating inside at the bar and tables. There is a stage towards the back for bands when they have live music.
Quality: My beer was served at the proper temperature in a pint glass.
Service: Our server was friendly and was kind enough to offer to bring out empty soup cups and bowls so we could see how big each size was. There was not a long wait to take the order, get the drinks and food, and for the check.
Selection: They had about 17 beers on-tap when I visited, including ones from Abita, Breckenridge, Dogfish Head, Great Lakes, Lagunitas, Left Hand, New Belgium, Stone, Three Floyd's and Triton.
Food: I tried a turkey wrap for lunch and it was pretty good, although next time I think I would opt for a different side other than French Fries.

Stopped by for lunch with the family, typical bar and grill atmosphere. Plenty of room around, also had a nice patio. The beers on tap were good not great. Lots of differnt options but nothing big stuck out. They had a wide mix of regional and national craft beers. The food was tex-mex style with a few others thrown in. I would come here again and hope they had more hardcore craft on tap next time.

While visiting family in Springfield, my brother in-law recommended this place. The place is situated in what seems to be a hipster-ish town of Yellow Springs. The place is inviting and comfortable, even if it is a little rough around the edges. There is a stage for live music, and a couple of seating areas.
The servers are friendly and attentive, even though they don't seem to know much about the beer menu.
The food is moderate at best; fairly standard menu for this type of place. Burgers and fries, with some Mexican influenced items as well. The beer menu is pretty decent for the area. Around 15-20 taps, ranging from fairly standard to pretty decent. Bells, Brooklyn, Stone, and Founders were all featured on the tap list, and there was a fairly good range of styles as well; too often these type of places focus too heavily on IPA's and big Stouts.
All in all, this is a pretty good place with a good beer selection.

I've written on Peach's in the past, but it was a duplicate listing so I will issue an updated review.
The main hangout in the uber-liberal town of Yellow Springs.
Atmosphere is decent, with two rooms of tables, two bars (one which generally stays closed in off-hours) and an outdoor patio. Decor is mostly sparse, with beer signs and a mural toward the bathrooms.
Although they have a full bar, craft beer is the focus of Peach's, and they feature ~25 beers on tap any given time, only 5 being macro products (Bud, Bud Light, Guinness, Harps, Bass), along with ABA & Purple Haze as permanent taps. The rest are rotating craft offerings. Some will be fairly pedestrian to regular craft drinkers, but you're always guaranteed at least a couple features. My most recent visit they had Founders Porter and ST Pumking on tap. They also feature a full line of Great Lakes, Sam Adams, Brooklyn, and a few others in bottles.
Food can be hit-or-miss; they recently changed their menu around, and everything I've tasted has been fairly good (if a bit pricey). The nacho plate is huge, the pita/hummus plate is very tasty, and their burritos are tasty. One big drawback for me is the salads, which are exclusively iceberg lettuce. In a town with an eclectic palate, this is inexcusable.
Service is always attentive, though when they are packed it can take some time to get initial attention from a server. Otherwise, a great spot in a great town. Get lunch, drink a couple pints of great beer, then walk it off along Dayton Ave, Xenia Ave, or the bike trail.

The beer is the star here! In the nice, college-hippie town of Yellow Springs, you'll find this laid-back bar with a great beer selection.
I shall admit that -after having heard many good things about this bar- I expected more from their beer list. But it was not bad at all! New Holland Mad Hatter, Bell's, Southern Pumkin, New Holland Rod, Bear Republic Pete's Brown, Weyerbacher Harvest, Arrogant Bastard, North Coast Pranqster... A small but focused selection. Nothing huge or boozy, but nice.
Service was very nice, everyone is so attentive here! A little busy at the bar but fine service. And what about the prices! $4.25 for a pint, and $3.00 during Sundays and other Happy Hour times. Beautiful.
Didn't try food, seems to be mostly Mexican?
Although not terribly impressed by the beer selection, I would definitely go back if I'm in the area. Cheers!
