Cervecería Wendlandt

in Ensenada, Mexico

3.75/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.75
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 3.5

A nice selection of their own, tasty brews, plus a good variety of other local brewers on tap. Food was good, not great, but a nice upscale departure from much of what you'll find in Ensenada. (192 characters)

Big Alice Brewing

I stumbled onto Big Alice Brewing recently after picking up my CSB share at Transmitter.

Big Alice is a must visit for any NYC beer fan! The taproom isn't a huge space, but the vibe is awesome, the beer is solid, and the staff is super friendly. Also they do crowlers! (Why dosn't everybody???) The peanut butter porter was plesant and the honey wit was really nice in this summer heat! (388 characters)

Great place to pick up single bottles and build mix six or four packs. Place is small but has good quality craft beer in singles and six packs. Single bottles are priced in $3 a bottle or higher but worth it to be able to try a beer and have to buy a twelve pack or case like most PA beer sellers. Beers that I bought there were Founders, Deschutes, Great Lakes, Captain Lawrence, and Maine Beer. All beers impossible to find in MD or DE. (439 characters)

Man this place always has a great selection to choose from, but the space is freakin tiny and if you don't get in early it gets elbow to elbow, and good luck getting a beer with three lines of people ahead of you. Show up before the crowds or on the weekends. (259 characters)

A neighborhood favorite! Great outdoor patio area, always a stocked board with great selections. Staff is fantastic (shout out to Jeff), been frequenting for 4-5 years. No food, but they have a large binder type stack of menus for you to order. (244 characters)

Love Fourth Ave Pub! They always offer an A level draft list with some very nice bottles as well, bartenders are always great and friendly. Nice outdoor area in the back, unlimited free popcorn and really close to the train and the Barclays center. What more could you ask for? (277 characters)

Great selections night in and night out, one of my favorites in the area. Staff are super cool and accommodating. They sport a really nice grassy outdoor area in the back, currently my favorite in Brooklyn! You can also pick bottles to go, their selection is really well balanced and there are many bottles you won't find anywhere else! (336 characters)

Actually went to the JFK branch of this location on July 15th. Was a pretty cool hangout with the best beer in the airport. Service was attentive and helpful, the beers were delicious! Food was a bit pricey, but damn tasty. If you're in JFK, check this place out! (263 characters)

Solid beers. Great local hangout especially in the summer with the patio. They only serve their own, but you can pick from a few wines and quality bourbons too. Usually a food truck around. If not you can always order a pie from the Pizza Cottage down the street and have it delivered right to the bar. Servive is always outstanding (332 characters)

Summer feel is good with a large garage door that opens to an outdoor seating area. The road immediately outside is busy and can be loud at times. In the winter I'm not sure how this will feel. Seems like the space will be small and tight and possible rather cool. Cross that bridge then.
I think the beers are solid with a small range of styles for their everyday beers. Nothing exceptional but they will try to throw on one or two new taps every Friday, for example a rye apa and a smaller Am. stout.
This is a smaller community, that doesn't have a tourist base or nearby populations to make a go. I wish them well and I'm glad they are there. (652 characters)

3.83/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.88
vibe: 4 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.75 | food: 4.25

Went here on our last night in Poznan, I believe it was July 20th. Service was prompt, but a bit pushy so it felt like we were rushed even though it was a normal amount of traffic. They spoke English and had English menus, it definitely makes sense since it seems like a lot of tourists would go here. Food was pretty decent but the portions were small, not overly expensive. The beer was OK, nothing to really brag about, but it was cool being able to drink something other than a Euro lager in Poland. My favorite was the Miodowe, which means "with honey" or "honey flavored" in Polish, and was basically an Oktoberfest-type beer. Would recommend if you are in Poznan and want to drink some beers in the Stary Rynek (old square). (731 characters)

Went here on Friday, July 21 after our trip to Neuschwanstein castle. There was a wedding party that took up most of the tables, but thankfully there were a handful left. Obviously the noise and the busy street out front brought down the vibe a bit. Theresienwiesn, where they have Oktoberfest is visible, though. Beers were fresh but the selection was really limited. Service was pretty terrible, they had two people working about 20 tables and the servers were not friendly. English menus available, though. Would not recommend unless you really needed a beverage and food during Oktoberfest. (594 characters)

Red Wing Brewery

in Red Wing, Minnesota

3.71/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4.22
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.75 | food: 4

Comfortable atmosphere with lots of old signage from the original (looks like ) 3 brewery's in the Red Wing area, plus some turn of the century (1900) advertisements. Fermentation tanks behind glass. I went at about 3:30 on a Friday and it was mostly full.
A broad list of beers brewed plus another 8 taps (7 from other MN smaller breweries and 1 BMC non-alc. beer). And a Red Wing root beer as well.
The pizza they make is popular but I did not partake. I believe it's a pretty small menu.
Service was friendly but a little slow and average in knowledge.
I'd go again when in the area. (593 characters)

Went here on our first day in Munchen, Friday the 21st. Was about a 15 minute walk from out hotel since it is not in the old town, but about a few minutes away on the south-western side. Sat in the huge outside biergarten since it was a nice evening. Service was a bit spotty, but typical for a German place. Food was most excellent, I had the roast duck. The beers were fresh and tasty, but the selection was quite small. I wanted to try the beer called vladimir or something which seemed like a hoppy wheat beer but they were out. Went with the brauhaus zwickl and weissbier. Would recommend, but there are some slightly better places in the heart of old town that are worth walking to first. (694 characters)

4.29/5  rDev +0.7% | rAvg: 4.26
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.25 | food: 4.25

Went here on Sunday, July 23rd, after a long wait to get to old town in Munich. The place is spectacular, right in the south-eastern side of old town, pretty close to the Hofbrauhaus. We opted for an outside table since it was so nice out that day. Service was actually pretty good for a German place, and they had English menus. Food was great, I had the butcher's platter which was 5 different sausages. They have pretty much every available Schneider-Weisse beer here except for the really odd stuff like Cuvee Barrique and Mein Nelson Sauvin. Basically, all the "Tap _" beers are here. Would STRONGLY recommend going here. (626 characters)

3.6/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.6
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 2.5 | food: 3.75

Such a pleasant feeling while you are inside the bar. Made in stone and dark wood, fits perfectly to what it offers as food (sausages, ribs, beans...) and drinks (Kozel Cerny/Dark, Pilsner Urguell, dark wine...). A really nice place, a must visit if you find yourself in Podgorica, Montenegro. (293 characters)

If you really care about finding quality craft beer in the Syracuse/Finger Lakes area then this is your spot. Owner is super knowledgeable and a pleasure to talk beer with. Store does a great job of selling fresh, properly stored beer. They also had by far the best selection I have seen in the Syracuse area. I love that they have 8-10 draft lines usually pouring pretty hard to find stuff so you can grab a couple beers in store or take a growler to go. It's definitely a must stop for me when in Upstate NY now. (515 characters)

This is a good very good beer and wine store. I would say it is currently 50/50 wine and beer with some.e liquor in there somewhere. The owner will get anything you want and will keep beers hidden for regulars. He gets limited releases and they are known to get kegs if you have a special occasion. Great store to have close by in what is otherwise white bread suburbia. (371 characters)

Zephyr Brewing Co.

vibe: 3 | quality: 1 | service: 2 | selection: 3

Save your money and time. Beers are overly sweet and flat. Everything tasted unfinished. And there's absolutely no reason why this brewery should be open and serving beer to the public. They should've figured this out before opening, and they've had ample time to correct their quality issues since opening.

Service was lackluster. He didn't engage me or talk about the beers. Just asked for my ID.

It's damn shame as the space is cool and I live mere blocks away.

The writing on the wall: The restaurant next door was jam packed, but this brewery had only 5 people in it; including me, the server, and 3 other patrons. (622 characters)

When you see the stairs, you know you're in beer heaven. Bombers galore, great beers on tap, and a supermarket of fresh food in any variety you need. Most IPAs were < 3 months from bottle date. The DeCiccos brand Biscotti Break is solid. This takes my vote over Brewster for best selection and is right at the north border of NY, making it an easier location for those coming from the NE (Vermont, Boston) and heading west/SW. (426 characters)

I'm very impressed with this brewery and tap room. It's a cofortable room with a warm, wood motif which is a nice change for Florida. The crowd and bartenders are pretty engaging and the beer is reaonably priced, well crafted, and diverse in style. (250 characters)

This place was great! Met there for a beer trade and was suprised at all the quality brews that were on tap. Food was outsanding. Met the owner who was very personable! (171 characters)
