this place rules. maybe the best kept beer secret in denver right now. so they have their main three beers they make, but people forget these guys are also a distributor, and they have an awesome range of taps from some of their breweries. high hops, gravity, back country, grimm brothers, aspen, even pipeworks out of chicago was pouring there. until recently their beers have been being made at prost from what i understand. nothing crazy yet, stuff they used to make back in the day for the most part. the space is awesome, in the student union building on the denver metro campus, cant believe people dont know about this yet. its going to blow up i think. i didnt eat, but the food looked good, and the tap list was super impressive. they have a cool mix of old and new brewing equipment too, and the vibe is neo industrial, hip but functional, very cool, i loved it. service was also excellent, knowledgeable and engaging. i had a blast here and cant wait to go back. the tivoli beers themselves are pretty straight up, well done but simple, but they have an enormous selection of brands they distribute all in a really original place. great times.

Went on a trip to Philly with some friends and we had to stop in here to check it out and see what it was all about. It was very busy and took a little while to get to the bar and order some drafts, but once we got our beers and found a table I really warmed up to the place. The music was excellent, The Smiths and New Order and R.E.M. seemed to be on constant rotation, there was a pool table which my friends had fun with, excellent beer of course (as you'll see in my reviews I think the Jefferson Tavern Ale is absolutely fantastic), and friendly people all around. We ended up having a nice conversation with complete strangers at the table next to us. That's really what a pub should be all about, bringing people together to enjoy great beer and great company. I'll be sure to come back here the next time I make it up to Philly. (Note: I don't know if they had food or not. I didn't really pay attention as I was mostly excited about the beer.)

Vibe is decent, the place being in a beach town it has a pretty laid back feel to it, while avoiding a convenience shop atmosphere, quality is good. The store is kept clean and well lit with nice displays. Service is good, the staff is friendly but not overbearing. Selection is excellent. Lots of locals as well as some things that are very hard to find in most beer shops, especially in long island.

vibe and quality i would say are slightly above that of your typical beer shop, the service however is excellent. Staff is friendly and knowledgable.
Selection is not high but very well curated. There are more great beers on the shelf then not, a rare quality in beer shops.

You walk in and see 2 flat screen TVs above the bar... the show: 24 draft beers on the electronic menu scrolling by. And when the beers have scrolled by, the Bourbon list starts scrolling. If you missed something, the bartender will gladly hand you a paper menu to refer to. They seem to have a preference for Belgians and Farmhouse ales. But you will also find some IPAs, Hefes, Helles, American ales, sours and more. They often have a couple stouts... with rather high ABV, such as Founders Breakfast. You have an option of "pours" such as 4 oz, 10 oz and 16 oz. They will bring you pizza which you can order from their restaurant next door.
And if that is not enough, you can take a few steps thru the swinging glass doors to the contiguous bottle shop where they think they have a couple thousand bottles.

Good tour, very cool tap room and patio. I usually don't like IPA's but their All Day IPA is now one of my favorite beers. Try the spicy chicken sandwich.

They finally got a brewpub license. They needed tables and food to get that and they do not disappoint. The menu is limited but what they offer (pannini and sandwiches, soup, etc.) is good. Two friends, Chris and Mark, began home-brewing in one of the guy's garage. Since Northeast PA is a former Anthracite coal mining region, the motif for their brewery is... coal. One of their first brews, Lunch Pail Ale (yeah, a pale ale) garnered some popularity in local pubs and things took off to the point where they needed some serious space. So... they buy a former parochial school and turn it into a brewery, thence a brew pub. They seem to be enamored of IPAs and so there are several in their Detonator Series. Many of their beers are experimental -- click around their web site and you will see some of the current ones. Two summers ago I sampled a Watermelon ale there and really enjoyed it (and I'm not a fan of fruity beers). Finally, I should say I am neither a relative nor employee.

Great spot in central Maine. Nice selection of taps and a solid "pub food"-type menu. Black Bear brews are the house beers here and some appear aliased in a way that is slightly confusing but not really a big deal.

Place is absolutely spotless with beer presented very well.
Staff is friendly and knowledgable, and the place has a really nice selection.
Great place to go regularly or when in the area.

Don't freak out, but they do not filter many of their beers. But, they make some quality stuff. Their Milk Stout is one of the best that I have had. They had a Wee Heavy recently that was out of this world.

This is the brick and mortar location for the food truck with the same name. In the old spot for Little Bigs. There is an expansive outdoor patio, with garage doors that open up. TV's seem to be at every outdoor table. There is a tiny bar inside, but basically all outdoor seating. Very much an Icehouse like feel.
Counter service, order at the register, take a number, and find a seat. Food comes out quickly, and the waitresses are sweethearts. Though they know little of the tap selection. 24 taps, with mostly a Silver Eagle account. Most of the Saint Arnold, Karbach, and 8th Wonder year rounds. Also 512, some Real Ale, Abita, and a few Macros. All beers are served in a plastic cup, which I am not particularly pleased with.
Food is pretty good burgers and shakes. There is a large menu of all things burgers as you would expect from the name. All 44 Farms beef. While the burgers are good, I think they over cook patties.
A pretty good burger and beer bar in Montrose. Nothing is exceptional, but all enjoyable. Worth a shot, and I'll be making more visits.

This has been one of my favorite bars in the Heights since it has taken over for the Boom Boom Wine Room. It is part of the Treadsack group, which in part is D&T Drive Inn and Down House. Johnny's is more of a cocktail bar, and almost has a 70's throwback lounge feel. The vibe is incredibly low key, with no TV's. Just a spacious bar, big booths around the edges, and a perfect tiny patio outside.
All counter/bar service, and the bartenders are great. I have never been here when it is to over crowded, so the bartenders are always on top of things. Most having worked at places like Down House, Julep, or other destination bars so they know how to take care of everything. No food, but the Pi-Pizza Truck is usually always parked outside and dishing out good pizzas.
There is a small, well chosen cocktail menu on the wall. All priced at $8, the pints prices are around $5. They do one of my favorite happy hours, with $2 off cocktails and $1 off all draughts. Tap list is small, but well chosen. It rotates between all Houston and Austin area breweries. Saint Arnold Endevour and Lone Pint Yellow Rose are almost always on. As is Live Oak Hefe, 512 Pecan Porter, and Brash will rotate in every now and then. Real Ale Hans Pils, and Town In City as well. The bottle list runs from Lone Star to Pumpkinator. Along with always getting Saint Arnold Bishop's Barrel releases. For what is suppose to be a cocktail bar, they do a really good job of focusing on quality Texas taps.
Just a great spot on Yale, and only a few block from my house. Between Down House, D&T, and Johnny's, Treadsack seems to be taking over the Heights, and is taking all of my money.

Beer selection is awesome. They still have the crap on tap for the frat boys ( Insert name here lite beer ). But they still have 100+ taps with no repeats. They consistently have taps for the top breweries in CA. Food portions are huge, so be prepared for that.

Great brewery with a wonderful staff. I like the selection, but they did not have a lot of darker beer. With that being said they did have a gose and saison which was nice to see and tasted great.

Nice place to try some craft beers. They have a sampler flight of any three beers for $8 and a good selection on their 16 taps. Food and service were excellent. You need to get there a little early if you want to avoid the crowds or get a good spot at the bar.

Cool Irish pub with lots of craft and european beer options, 25+ drafts. When I went for happy hour they had a cask of revival IPA right on top of the bar pouring it fresh from the keg, pretty awesome. The staff was friendly and attentive happy hour menu was cheap and good.

I enjoy the vibe and the selection at D. Schuler's, but in my opinion it is the customer service that stands out. The staff take time to ask you questions and they look out for you when they know what you like.

Not much on food selection but the beer delivers. Heffe and the Sue are excellent. The tour was very good and worth talking. Included samples and a take home sampling glass.

Located on in a strip mall of Rt 52. Went there to try out some Frozen Toe beers.I tried two Frozen toe beers on tap. Both were very good. Also ordered a crab pizza that was excellent. Service was great also. Place was pretty dead though with dining area mostly empty. The bar had the most activity with people coming and going but never more than half full. With seven taps the draft selection was limited to a couple DFH beers, Lagunitas IPA, two local brews, Yuengling and Coors. Bottle selection not much better. Worth going back for the in house brews and food but not if you are looking other brands of craft beer

Must order any of their barrel ages beers! Also make sure to try the sweet potato poutine! Hot chicken sandwich wasn't bad either. Looking forward to my next visit.

I was not overly impressed. Good but not great. I tried several of their beers and many have a similar appearance: cloudy and saison-like. I think they make too may beers and the names are weird. Victory Brewing is much larger and their beer count if half of what Tired Hands is. Plus they offer more types and styles.
Our food was good and service was good.

Not a wide variety of food items to choose from, but I've yet to have anything that I didn't like. Specials are always a good choice. On beer side the Coffee Brown is my favorite.
