Nice place for a burger and beer, we enjoyed the casual outdoor area, friendly and efficient service. Tasty burgers, quality brew...nothing amazing but this is a quality spot, well run and worth a visit if in kzoo... (218 characters)

Really expansive selection, from a lot of US, British and other imported beers to the widest selection of German craft beers I've seen. Seemed like great prices too compared to other stores I've been to (bought about 45 bottles for roughly €100). I'll go a little out of my way if I'm anywhere near this area to make a pit stop. (330 characters)

Lynnwood has always been a great place, but now that they brew their own beers (some phenomenal hoppy beers at that) it is a must see. If you can get your hands on a Hubris Imperial IPA you won't be disappointed. If you can't, the Hop On Top IPA or Mosaic Pale Ale are pretty close. (282 characters)

Unique brewery location on a back country road. Relaxed, fun, and employees are down to earth. Great beers, fair prices. Glassware, tee shirts, and growler fills also available. Occasional food trucks on the weekends. Drove up from Galena (20 min) for the Roller Blabe canning, left more than satisfied. Will be back for sure! (326 characters)

Small cozy tap room. Excellent vibe with some very unique offerings. Tried a flight that included a ghost pepper IPA, rhubarb sour and an oak barrel cabernet Brown ale. All exceptional. Definitely a do over for me next time I'm in Charlotte area. (246 characters)

To get there, you drive down a one lane road, arriving at a small gravel parking lot in the middle of the woods surrouded by overgrown weeds. From the back of the lot, the was to the entrance in unclear. I walk towards the largest building and stumble upon a wooden pathway constructed with thin pallets. I find the door, walk into a small room with a few tables and one small, crowded bar with about 8 taps. While waiting to order, I study the chalkboard which showcases 7 different offerings. Staff is friendly and helpful. I didn't have time to chat and discuss how the beers are made due to the line behind me. They all seemed very and willing to talk, had time allowed. They have a covered picnic table area outside with multiple levels and a gravel floor. The occasional debris will fall from the trees above, hitting the steel roof , and creating a noise resembling a rifle shot. I drank the hickory stout and blackberry sour. I'm happy to say I enjoyed them both. Overall, a pleasant experience and quality beer. (1,035 characters)

Visited Aug 2015. City centre microbrewery pub in New Town. You can see the beers fermenting through windows. Interesting selection of beers ranging from nettle to sour cherry with about 8. Flights were available but looked pricey. 2 beers tasted were both very good particularly the special, Grodziskie. Serves staple Czech food which looked good. Not the greatest ambiance and had touches of gimmickry with the different beer types. (434 characters)

Brick House Tavern + Tap

3.89/5  rDev n/a | rAvg: 3.89
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 4 | selection: 4

Restaurant/bar with large outdoor seating and plenty of televisions for game watching. Approximately 30 taps and 30 bottles, including several local Tampa brewed beers, so a pretty good selection to choose from. Cool bar vibe and friendly servers. The downside is that the food was inedible; so go for the beer and vibe. (320 characters)

Great space in old industrial complex...steampunk-ish. Bar seats a dozen or so and they offered a selection of 11 different beers. Opposite the bar is open to the brewery and adds to the vibe of the place. Great service and good beer... (236 characters)

Bentley Brewing is in a small interior section of an old multi-purpose building. The tasting room is good sized, with a small bar at the far side of the room. The room had the feel of a art galley, with a wall displaying painted skateboards They offered a well rounded selection of beers for sampling and growler fills. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoyed their beers and the experience. (401 characters)

Acme Fresh Market

This is a grocery store I regularly visit when I go down to visit family. They have a nice selection of bombers and six packs of IPAs and other beer styles that are best stored cold in an open line of coolers; with very good freshness dating for the local IPAs. They also have a solid selection of singles on a warm shelf, but I rarely see any new or limited beers there. Most of the widely available locals and big breweries from other states. The freshness on the singles shelf is usually very good, though. There is also a nice selection of 6 packs on the warm shelves, with bombers on the top from a good variety of breweries; and with good overall rotation and freshness. They do have a growler station as well that offers samples, and has good rotation for freshness and always has a few of the latest seasonals available. The overall selection is not all that massive, but is definitely great for a grocery store. I can always expect to see something new that I have not had before whenever I stop by, but it is usually only every few months. The service is good, they usually have an associate maintaining the beer/wine stock and growler station; so if you have any questions they are available. Overall it is a great store to stop by whenever I am in the area, good selection and quality all around. (1,317 characters)

severely understaffed when I visited. warrants another visit back during slower hours. The water was CO2-driven, so it came out half carbonated and warm- pretty gross. But this isnt H2O Advocate. They had tasty beers. Decent variety in styles too. (247 characters)

Infusion Brewing Co.

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

Stopped in on a busy Saturday afternoon before departing Omaha. This brewery had the highest ratings of any other brewery in the area. This brewery is in a funky/artsy/hipster area but was pretty cool and you could see why it was so popular.

They had lots of creative beers: Pineapple IPA, Vanilla Bean Blonde and Cherry Wheat. I opted to get a growler of the Pineapple IPA to take back home.

The brewery itself was relatively small but could comfortable fit 50-75 people. It looks like they served local pizzas and had a large seating area at the bar. The growler prices were very fair and I look forward to stopping again to try more beer in the future. (658 characters)

Visited Von Rothenburg's for a company event! In October. Weather was really cooperative and we sat outside and had an sampling of Octoberfest's. Food was a non-event, but the atmosphere made up for any shortcomings!

Cheers! I will be back next time I'm in Menomonee Falls (278 characters)

This is a chain brewpub, located in a suburban strip mall, not far from the highway. Easy to find, with ample parking, the restaurant is moder and clean. Nice service, but not exceptional. The beer, also, was lackluster. No real flaws in the beer, but also nothing adventurous or interesting. Also, I don't think that I like the fermentus Interruptus idea. They had a few pale ales, an iPa, a bock, a stout, and a lager. (425 characters)

A short walk from Crystal City Metro and housed above McCormick and Schmidt's is this oasis of beer and food. Well, to me it was an oasis. Being from out of two, food and beer were essential to keep me going. Highline RxR does fine in both areas. There's a long flight of steps which you must climb before you hit the host's podium, and from there you have a large area to hang out. Large bar area, lots of space to go around, and a large outdoor patio that rests 20 feet above the street.

Three different clusters of taps around the bar, each cluster holding around 20 taps (although a number of them are duplicate taps. Having come on Virginia Beer Week, I saw an extra boost of beers from the state. There were also brands from across the USA and imports. Brands pouring included Parkaway, Blue Mountain, Old Bust Head, Port City, Gaffel, Epic, Left Hand, Duchess de Bourgogne, Avery. Thick bottoms shaker make must of the glassware, although goblets were utilized for some of the drafts. The beer was fresh, although I did feel shortchanged on one of my three pours. Service was acceptable; having a beer menu and special beer menu helped out the mediocre ordering time. Many of the pours were hitting $7, a bit more than what I am used to in Orange County. My steak sandwich was fine as well.

The beer selection is the highlight here. If you're looking for extra beers to try, Highline RxR would be worth checking out. (1,427 characters)

I love red beard. I've been coming here since their opening night. Their new beer the Pennyroyal Pale is one of the best most drinkable pale ales I've ever tasted. I thought their American Pale Ale A.P.A was my fave till I tasted the Penny. Awesome! Definitely worth the trip if you're in the area (297 characters)

Tasting tour was a very fun time and a great anniversary gift from my wife...sipping on great Founders' year-rounds, followed by Bolt Cutter, which was a nice treat. Atmosphere was awesome--Herbie Hancock was an obvious plus. People were great. Good food and great beer. Literally, no complaints, only compliments. A must if you can make it to Michigan. (357 characters)

Always enjoy visiting this nice local watering hole. Simple with nice artworks placed here and there. Simple yet elegant bar with the emphasis on the beer they serve. All solid and excellent examples of the styles. From pales to Belgians, they proudly serve excellent ales and a wide variety to choose from. Friendly and attentive staff. Wish they had food, but one out of two ain't too shabby. Worth the drive to historic down town Wooster who should be proud to have such a treasure hidden away there.

Thoroughly enjoy my visit every time I come to Columbus on my trek to Wooster Ohio. Nice old time bar/eatery with a very nice traditional bar with nice wood work and classic bottles from around the world. Food is very good, burgers are solid and fish and chips are quite nice. Service is always good and attentive. Ale selection is as good as you want it to be. Solid dark and strong ale offerings, Belgian and Russian imperials, nice IPA's and an always good hand pull firkin. Old, worn, and comfortable with guests of every walk of life from urban professional to college hipster and general Joe public. No complaints except that I only have 3 growlers to fill on a visit....and they need to bring back the Barley Burger which was awesome. Owner is very nice as well and has a great attention to detail when it comes to his brews.

Try it, you will find something to your liking.

Visited this time around on a Thursday afternoon at lunch time. Get in early, they get crowded fast.

Cheers Barleys------please do not change! (1,037 characters)

Nice selection of different styles of ales mixed with a few guest taps and a nice selection of spirits. I was the first in the door so got excellent service and knowledge from the bartender who was friendly and helpful. Beers range in flavor profiles with some high notes. Nice local spot to hit in the Columbus area. Got our growlers and hit the road, but still was impressed for being open for such a short time.

Expect more good things from them with time and experience. Their glowing stars were the Portergeist and the Hefeweizen which were stunning and delicious. (577 characters)
