Partin Liquors

vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.25 | service: 4.5 | selection: 3.75

Decent craft beer store in between Saint Cloud and Kissimmee. This is very beneficial to the residents of Saint Cloud as the traveling is limited due to this store. The store gets it's hands on some whalez and the regular selection is pretty good.

Major issues with this store is the price gouging. I saw a bottle of DF120 being sold for $25 which is higher than bars sell it. Also, there aren't any signs specifying limits on their beer. Often time you grab two or three of something and you'll get told at the counter there's a limit. Life's the prices become more in line with their competitors, this store could be amazing. (629 characters)

Very nice, clean, large, open brewpub. Light years nicer than the Indy tasting room.
Food was great. Good selection and quality stuff.
Service was just ok. Waited a bit to place an order and to have the waitress come by again. They delivered our food to the table behind us at first. Those folks (for some reason) didn't immediately send it back and rather had the waitress come back to take it away a minute later. We watched the waitress carry the plates back to the kitchen and then immediately pop out again with them and carried them to our table. (552 characters)

Upland Broad Ripple Tasting Room

in Indianapolis, Indiana

2.35/5  rDev -38.5% | rAvg: 3.82
vibe: 3 | quality: 1 | service: 4 | selection: 2

Vibe: Pretty cool, very small place. Not really conducive to staying and having a beer or two. More of a pickup a growler place.

Quality: Despite the beer being good, the neighborhood and building is dumpy. Didn't want to leave my car outside too long.

Service: The bartender was great. Friendly, nice and quick. The best part about the place.

Selection: Standard lineup. Nothing unique. (390 characters)

Full of the Block Iskand tourist crowd. Waitress was slow and unaccomodating. Had 2 of their local-brewed Raspberry Wheat, which were actually ok. Ordered a burger that was above average and cooked perfectly. (209 characters)

Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri

4.01/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.86
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4.25 | food: 4

This is an informal place located on the road leading to the City Hall of Oslo (from the land side).

The beer list is very, very expensive by American standards ($12+ for each bottle of beer; a little less for drafts). The list is extensive with some of the very best beers from Europe and the US. The Norwegian beers are the usuals.

Service improved after we settled in. The workers are friendly and moderately knowledgable of the beers they are serving.

We only ordered dessert which was fine. The other plates we saw looked quite good. (549 characters)

County Grill & Smokehouse

3.74/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.74
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.75 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.5 | food: 4.5

Four of us from Ohio were on a business trip to Hampton VA, and we asked some of the locals where to go to find the best beer selection. County Grill was highly recommended by several people we talked to.

The food was really good. We tried the ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and chicken. This is a great place if you are looking for barbecue. The prices are extremely reasonable and the quantities large.

I was excited to see what was on the beer menu, since I haven't been back to Hampton in several years. I was particularly interested to see what local/Virginia offerings were available. The beer menu showed about 20 beers on tap. My high hopes were dashed. Yuengling, Bud Light, Bass, and Guinness and the like featured prominently. Most of the rest of the craft selection were beers that we can get back in Ohio and broadly across the country--Goose Island, Dogfish Head, etc. The 3 or 4 local options were basic blonde ales or lagers which didn't interest us, so we opted for Union Jack.

Our beer was served in a super-chilled pint glass, which unfortunately kept the beer so cold during the entire meal that the flavor of the beer never had a chance to emerge. For our second beer of the night, we chose the one local choice I was interested in--a saison from Smartmouth Brewing in Norfolk. I asked our server to tell the barkeep NOT to use a chilled glass this time. She didn't understand why, so I explained. I felt like such a beer snob, and she probably thought I was crazy. A different server returned with our beers--in a chilled pint glass! Argh! Apparently they didn't have any glasses that weren't chilled.

Bottom line: County Grill is not a really much of a beer destination. Just go for the food and you won't be disappointed. The waitstaff was very friendly and very efficient, and we enjoyed our evening at the County Grill. (1,867 characters)

Foley Brothers Brewing

in Brandon, Vermont

4.41/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 4.09
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.75 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4

Rustic feel to the place. Wide wood planked floors and barn door entrance definitely gives it a rural vibe. They offer samples of their beer for $5, and wine tasting is available there too. I managed to go on a day that they had just bottled some pieces of 8. They sell most of their beer in 22 oz bombers there. I saw a lot of it around in btl shops, but it's a couple dollars cheaper here. Bartenders seemed to be owners/brewer/husband and wife. Very nice people and easy to chat to about business. They offer a limited sandwich menu on fri/sat. $5 gets you roast beef, caramelized onions, cheese on a baguette with some cape cod chips and an Italian chocolate. (668 characters)

4.15/5  rDev -1.7% | rAvg: 4.22
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.75

Smallish tasting room with a bunch of high top bar tables situated around a horseshoe bar that seats about a dozen. Retail store is situated nearby and stocked with signs, glasses, Frisbees, etc. You can see the tanks through a glass separator.

You can expect a broad clientele here. From group tours to families to aficionados. Doesn't seem like many locals go here, but I did go on a weekend. Can get quite loud.

You can get wolavers, shed, and OC beers here. About a dozen overall. I'm pretty sure all are avail in stores except their pilot batches. The one when I went was an English mild, and I could definitely drink it all day. OC beers are pretty good to semi-spectacular. Prices for beers are $5/pint, and tasters are avail, but they choose the beers.

I didn't expect to order food, but after seeing and smelling the smoked buffalo wings I gave it a shot. They have wraps, paninis, nachos, and vermont cheese board for mostly under $11. I had pulled pork, smoked gouda, and jalapeño pesto on crostini. Very delicious and reasonably priced. (1,064 characters)

Great place to stop off, just a short drive from 95 outside of Philadelphia. Big open area with a large bar and picnic tables, with a rope separating the drinkers from the active brewery. Table games and arcade games provide a good distraction. Pretty cool ambiance. Loads of beers on tap, including all the regulars, plus bottles and cans, etc. Growler fills available. The beer here is top notch and the bartenders know their stuff. (434 characters)

Solid draft selection as well as some bottles to go. Growlers filled. The owners seem like great people. Ray has a dry sense of humor but is good people. Would appreciate a little more help or insight to certain beers, although they will let you taste anything. Cool selection of bar games as well makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. (340 characters)

Had lunch here on 6/26/15, Fantastic pub, beers on tap here not available almost anywhere else (8-Hop IPA and Double Dead Guy) to name a few. Food was good. The location out on the pier in the Colombia River is awesome. Rogue merchandise available at very reasonable prices. Hope I get a chance to go back someday. (314 characters)

Some really solid offerings. The sessionable APA's and IPA's are quite impressive. Food is well priced, and tasty. Cool vibe in this place. Well priced beers and it's cool that they offer half pint pours for the tickers that like to get more than the typical "flight size" shots that most breweries offer. Definitely worth planning a stop on the 101 to hit this brewery. (370 characters)

The new back room is nice but the service leaves a bit to be desired as they're not very knowledgeable about the beer and not all that attentive. I sat for 10 minutes after my food was boxed up (by the great busser) and I was done with my drink before the waiter deigned it necessary to come over and ask if I wanted another or the check. (339 characters)

My favorite beer place in town. The beers are great and always rotating so you'll get to try something new all the time. The girls behind the bar are great servers and will let you try a sample before buying a pint. Grab a spot on the front patio or in the back and enjoy the night on Augusta street. (304 characters)

Worth a visit if you are in town. The tasting room is more like a bar in a large room with windows into the brewery. Our bartender was great and very attentive taking time to talk us through the dozen or more choices. The beer is good with some interesting choices and the food is from a gormet food truck outside that you can bring in (we didn't eat so can't comment). They're open late and often have live bands so definitely worth a try. (445 characters)

Not my cup of tea. It's basically a restaurant that serves CBC beer. You can see the brewery through the glass in the walls but there is very little brewery feel. I'm glad I visited but I was disappointed in the atmosphere and beer. Average at best. I'm glad I was only visiting. (283 characters)

The bar and restaurant are in the same building as the brewery. A huge window let's you see the brewery as you enjoy your meal. The only minor downside is the 8 or so beers on tap. The awesome things are the food, very nice. The 8 brews are extremely good. A really cool thing is every Monday at 4:00 they tap a new pilot brew, any variety, I think the brewmaster just experiments and puts out like 2 kegs when they're more. The nice waitress informed me that they recently had a watermelon ale, sounds bad, but actually sold out very quick with rave reviews. (569 characters)

This is an overwhelmingly large, yet very impressive brewery with a cool atmosphere. One fatal downfall though-- NO FLIGHTS. This is ridiculous for people like me who like to try all of the beers. Fix that flaw & this place would be on point. (242 characters)

I ate here with my family when we stopped overnight in Cleveland while on a road trip. The restaurant is located on a picturesque little street, with a public pay parking lot adjacent to the brewery. Both indoor and outdoor seating, the ambiance is eclectic, with a well worn and dark interior and an outdoor area that is modern and interesting. The food is excellent, local, and creative. The beer is well made, fresh, and from a decent selection. Great service and a nice crowd. Worth a visit. (501 characters)
