Torn Label Brewing Co.

in Kansas City, Missouri

4/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4

Cool new brewery in the Crossroads district. Located in an artists' studios building, in a sketchy neighborhood with a prostitution issue... Just sayin.

Smallish taproom with plenty of old wood, funky retro vibe courtesy of a salvaged window tap list with hand painted beer signs, a turntable table, and mounted crates on the wall. Cool bathrooms with vintage fixtures outside, in dim blue lamplight. Patio outside to revel in the raw industrial chic, under a large shade tree with a partial awning as well.

Beers were good, especially their APA and coffee stout, everything else to a lesser extent.
Service was good, though initially ignored at the bar by the young girl bartender.
Hipster central type of crowd. Overall it was a fun stop if you're already in the neighborhood. (783 characters)

Golden Road Brewing

vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.75 | food: 3.75

Overall vibe is pretty cool. Big place, bigger than I expected. Dog/kid friendly a major plus. Food was quite good. They only have 2 flights of beers that are set. That sucks for us beer geeks. I do understand why, seeing the serious volume they do, but... Also, they will bring you a taster, but they are really, really small. I nearly always offer to pay for tasters, but I like to get at least 3-4 oz. One bad, was the men's room. It was decrepit. However, as a beer fan, I don't consider that too much when rating a place. (526 characters)

Finally dropped by this LA beer spot. Two very cool barkeeps. More than happy to talk about the beer, offer suggestions, solicit opinions, etc. The gal, I forgot her name, was very engaging without hovering, and very tolerant of all my inquiries as to hops, etc... (264 characters)

A great place for craft beer growing up in Fairless Hills. But I haven't been their in awhile since moving to N.E. Philly.

Went there the other day on the way home from work to see what it's like now. I was taken aback by the new warm single beer display they have in the middle of the store now, I'm assuming for a create your own 6-pack element to the store. (Completely unnecessary IMO)

Bought a sizer of Kenzinger and realized it was 3 weeks beyond its freshness date. So I took it back and complained and the staff told me that the date doesn't matter and the beer is fine. I asked for a refund and went to see if there was anything else I might be interested in. I checked out the Brooklyn Pilsner, which I realized was TWO months beyond its freshness date. I left and and went to The Craft Beer outlet in N.E. Philly, which is much closer to me and noticed that none of their beer was beyond the freshness date.

I understand that a beer distributor in the suburbs has less volume and is working with what they got, but don't sit there patronize me for wanting my craft beer to be as fresh as possible for maximum enjoyment. (1,136 characters)

Somewhat intimidating pick-your-own 6 pack beer distributor. But once you've gone a couple times you realize that the staff is super helpful and not judgmental. They have Beer tasting events on the weekend, growlers and an amazing selection of craft beers. (256 characters)

Herberg de Dulle Griet

in Gent, Belgium

vibe: 4 | quality: 5 | service: 4 | selection: 5 | food: 3

Awesome selection. Awesome location. Warmed up with a St. Bernardus Abbot 8 then proceeded to the Dulle Griet speciality: a yard of Pawel Kwak. Patrons must give up a shoe to rent the Kwak setup. Also must sit inside for the Kwak. On another visit had Kasteel a Rouge while wife had a Kriek and buddy had a Westmalle. We had a salami and cheese plate, standard fare. Nice to sit outside and people watch in the Friday Market square. Gent is a beautiful city that I hope to visit again. I would definitely visit Dulle Griet again (and again). (550 characters)

Lost Forty Brewery

in Little Rock, Arkansas

4.19/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4.2
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4 | food: 4.25

Big open tap room as you walk through the front entrance. Tall ceilings (which does make the place loud) with a few unobtrusive TV's off to the side showing a baseball game. Big communal style seating with a bar towards the back. The bar area has the tap selection on a chalkboard with the open kitchen. Really inviting and well done atmosphere.

Selection is about 10 taps. They had a Summer Saison, a few Bocks (one was barrel aged in Four Roses Bourbon barrels). Two summer seasonal's, Wandering White Hop Ale, and Summer Saison. Along with The self titled Pale Ale and Bare Bones. Both of witch I think are the best two beers made in the state of Arkansas. Some beers are a little similar, I would be hard pressed to tell if the Saison was a Saison. It seemed real similar to the Bare Bones Pils, which to say is very good but not what I was thinking for the style. Along with a DIPA, regular IPA and an Imperial Stout. There might have been a few more. You can buy six packs if they are available, and they do growler fills of most offerings.

Food and service is great. If sitting at the bar, you can see the kitchen working, which is always tricky when the public can watch. Though they are on top of everything and food comes out before you know it. Bartenders are there to answer any questions, and you are never left with an empty glass.

The Gulf Shrimp Gumbo was one of the best gumbos I have had. Big thick roux, very spicy, with lots of different flavors and textures. The house made bratwurst is on point as well. With home made mustard, pickles, and sauerkraut. The kraut was great, not to pungent, but with enough funk to satisfy, as well as being uber fresh. I am amazed at the quality of the food here.

Maybe not an all time favorite brewery, but certainly my favorite in Arkansas...and damn good in its own right. When they hit, it is spot on. As well as a great atmosphere, along with service and food that makes you want to come back for more. Big Orange and Lost Forty are my beer spots from now on in Little Rock. (2,066 characters)

Place is soo cool. Great outdoor area, pet/kid friendly. Staff is very chill, approachable, and available. One time, one of the brewer's even helped me buy bottles even though they weren't open, and he had no till. But he laughed and chatted and never gave a hint of how much of a pain my request to buy beers was 2 hours before opening time. Great peeps. (355 characters)

Cannonball Creek Brewing Company

in Golden, Colorado

4.12/5  rDev +0.5% | rAvg: 4.1
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4

V-Cannonball is located in a strip mall a few minutes north of old Downtown Golden. The space is pretty big and a large bar is at the center. Brewing equipment sits off the side of the bar. The decor inside is kinda industrial; as industrial as you get in a new strip mall in the suburbs, anyway. It feels a bit like a brewpub, but only food truck food is available. A medium sized patio looks at the 7-11 next door. It was crowded when I visited on a hot summer afternoon. A few mountain bro-type groups with tank tops and board shorts; a family or two; and some older couples hanging out playing cards. Nice selection of punk rock on the stereo.

Q-I tried two IPAs and a pale ale. All of the me were tasty and great for summertime drinking. Well-made beers.

Ser-The bartenders were prompt and knowledgeable about Cannonball's offerings. Glassware was style appropriate and my beers arrived with a good amount of head.

Sel-There were 8 beers on tap when I visited. Most of them were in the 6-7.5% ABV range and most were seasonally appropriate. A few heavier offerings were available if you wanted a summertime stout or porter.

O-Cannonball isn't going to charm the pants off anyone, but the beers are good and vibe is appropriate for the location. All in all, a nice spot. (1,281 characters)

Sunrise Mini Mart

in Austin, Texas

4.75/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4.58
vibe: 3 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5

Sunrise is about 1/3 convenience store, 2/3 bottle shop (includes beer, wine, craft sodas). Prairie Artisan, Jester King and bottles from new local breweries are here. Their selection is probably 2nd greatest in Austin after Whichcraft, but almost all of it is available cold. They had a 4-pack of Victory Kirsch Gose on the dry shelf that I wanted cold and one of their guys went to the storage cooler and found one for me. Also bought a can of WD-40 and some Atomic Fireballs. (482 characters)

After entering the front door and requesting a seat outside, we seated ourselves and were promptly ignored for 20 minutes while others that arrived only recently were served. The kitchen was unable to tell us what oil they fry in. They literally did not know what freaking oil they used. This is reassuring when you have a daughter with a peanut allergy and a wife with a tree nut allergy. We ordered waters for both my girls (ages 4 & 1) and they were given glassware. Nothing says kid-friendly like handing a mason jar with a straw to a one-year old. Furthermore, the beer was forgettable. There two staple IPAs were unavailable. We were forced to avoid anything fried because of the cooking oil illiteracy and that food was pretty blah. Total disappointment. (761 characters)

4.38/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4.38

Love this place. I work in Germantown, MD but live in Bethesda so the Pour House is right on my way home when I travel back down I-270. They have over 120 beers available with a very big tap list, rotating about 10-12 (1 Nitro) beers while keeping the rest of their offering consistent. No matter which type of beer you prefer, they have something for everyone. If you have friends who prefer spirits or wine, they have a wide selection of that stuff as well (including wine on tap, pretty cool). All beers are available in 6 oz. flight style glasses or larger pints/snifters, etc. I've only ever sat at the bar; the bartenders are attentive and not overbearing. The ceilings are high and the space above the bars is reserved for huge TVs, great place to catch a game. Food is great too, the cheese curds and firecracker rolls are my favorite. (843 characters)

Great place. Their beers are very drinkable and taste amazing. Their selection is of beers is small, but they only opened up two weeks ago so I'm won't take them against them because they have several types to choose from. Great vibes and ambiance, and they had an awesome food truck out front. Prices were the norm- $6 a pour. They also have growlers. This is probably my new go-to tasting room to drink at now. (412 characters)

Finally an oasis of craft beer located in the previously barren hinterlands of rural Chesapeake. They have a passion for beer and have plenty of solid offerings. Looking forward to their barrel aged stuff. Based on their test batches...they will soon be the kings of barrel aging in the Commonwealth. (300 characters)

Visited Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery in Portland, OR on Wednesday August 29, 2015.

The Rock Bottom was busy on this Wednesday night, but we got a table for 2 immediately. We got a table outside, which was enjoyable with the great weather that night. There was a nice selection of beers available, many on draft. I had two pints of the Schwartz Bier, which were very good. The waitress was very helpful. She answered all of our questions and was very friendly.

Although they were packed, we received our drinks quickly. The food was also served quickly. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner, and did not feel rushed.

I had one of the burgers, which was very tasty. The burger was tasty even without any condiments.

There are many brewpubs in Portland (which is great for beer lovers). I want to try many of them, and Rock Bottom is one I would go to again. (857 characters)

Visited Deschutes Brewery & Public House in Portland, OR on Thursday August 30, 2015.

The public house was packed on a Thursday night and there was a waiting line, but we got a table for 2 in about 10 minutes. There were tables outside, but we took an inside table.

There was a nice selection of beers available, many on draft. I had two pints of the Black Butte Porter, which were excellent. The waitress was very helpful. She answered all of our questions and was very friendly.

Although they were packed, we received our drinks quickly. The food was also served quickly. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner, and did not feel rushed.

I had the crab roll, which was very tasty. My friend had the Elk burger which was good as well.

There are many brewpubs in Portland (which is great for beer lovers). Deschutes is one that I will want to go back to again. I hope to go back and try their Obsidian Stout. The beer was great, and the food was good for a brewpub. Beer selection was good too. (1,000 characters)

vibe: 3.25 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.5

I was very underwhelmed by this place and was left scratching my head at the ratings on here. The beer list was solid but nowhere close to spectacular. The atmosphere wasn't great either - very dark (not in a good way), kind of run down and very stuffy with no A/C (was there on a very hot summer day). Not worth going out of your way for, but if you are in the area, it's worth stopping by for a pint. (405 characters)

5/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 5
vibe: 5 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5

So... I heard about this place from a buddy at work so thought I would check it out.

On the day I went they had around 165 bottles and 12 on tap... Pretty impressive.
Staff were friendly and helpful and seemed to actually care about beer as well as being well informed on their ranges. The place had a nice relaxed feel

They do not have the kitchen open yet (Aug 1st 2015) but plan to have her up and running in the next 6-8 weeks or so.
The decor was very nice, a real cosmo warehouse type feel being set over two levels with old school chairs for seating and big tables to encourage the social element and sharing the experience. The bar staff told me when the kitchen is up they will have sharing boards designed to be paired with food. This place is def one to check out if you are in the right neck of the woods!

They are also focusing on their own beer range over the next while so that will be one to watch as well! (928 characters)

Cool place. Solid but not spectacular. What Bailey's has going for it is location. If you are staying downtown on the west side of the river, there aren't many great beer bars, so Bailey's stands out. Tap list when I was there was solid, but nothing worth noting. Vibe is pretty cool too. (295 characters)

This is a must visit in PDX, espeically if you are a sour lover (which I am admittedly, not). The atmosphere is laid back and interesting, the service is great and the selection is fantastic. Would definitely go back on a future visit. (237 characters)

For a grocery store, the Corolla Food Lion is pretty good. They have the standard macros (reasonable prices, too) with a decent craft selection including a $9.99 mix-six section. Not a bad stop on the way to the 4x4 beach. (222 characters)
