Independent Fermentations Brewing (IndieFerm)

in Plymouth, Massachusetts

4.11/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 4.09
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4

Place is tight and homey, but I know they plan on expanding soon. Nice ten foot long bar up front with benches, and eclectic decor. Has the feel of a mom and pop shop store front. The space seemed to fill up with locals pretty fast and they seem to have a good rotation of food vendors that stop by. Staff is super friendly and passionate. About seven or so different beers on tap with some very interesting offerings. They had saisons, smoked beer, and an oud bruin on tap among other style. All the beer that I had was tasty. Really curious to see what they do with the new space, but this makes a nice local hangout. I will be going back.

Pizza Rock

I can't believe there is only one review on this place, so I had to put another.

This place is awesome. Period.

Draft selection is good, lots of bottles too. Go on the happy hour and save some cash, or don't, it's all good.

The pizza here is AMAZING. I live in Chicago, so lots of access to really good pizza, but this place is the best of all pizza kingdom. Why you might ask? They have ALL the styles. Chicago cracker...check. Chicago deep....check. Michigan deep...check. Neo....check. On and on I could go.

Just go here.

J. Wakefield Brewing

in Miami, Florida

2.08/5  rDev -53.9% | Avg: 4.51
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 2.5 | service: 1 | selection: 2

Mediocre beers with a few that are actually good. Horrible quality control (leaky bottles mostly). Service is atrocious. Clearly doesn't care about the customers and just out to make money. It's a real shame because some seriously good beers were leaking out from here before they opened up. Would not recommend

Big River Brewpub

Brewer Damon Robson is an expatriate of the united Kingdom, and as such produces some of the cleanest, English-style beers I've had on this side of the pond. The ESB was generously hopped and, to my amazement, the Pale Ale, ESB and Stout were all poured utilizing CO² driven stout faucets with creamer plate. The resulting collar of foam was formed of smaller, tightly-knit bubbles and stuck around from the very first sip all the was to the end of the sleeve (Pint Glass). Great idea, eh?

Avery Brewing Company

in Boulder, Colorado

4.31/5  rDev -1.4% | Avg: 4.37
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.75 | service: 3.75 | selection: 4.5

Avery is located on the outskirts of Boulder (about 30 minutes from Denver). Its a fairly large location with both a large bar area and a restaurant.

The taproom has quite a few of their beers on tap. If you love hot beers, this is the place for you (a lot of >15% beers). Pretty darn good brewer. I wish the service was a bit better though.

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project

in Denver, Colorado

4.83/5  rDev +12.1% | Avg: 4.31
vibe: 4.75 | quality: 5 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.75

Crooked Stave is a very short drive from downtown Denver. It shares a location with several other businesses at "The Source" (really a cool place to hang out).

Crooked Stave's portion has mainly bar stool seating along with some tables. The beer is really great (mainly sours but they had an IPA option when I was there). You can get taster portions or full pours and they also had a vast bottle selection of reasonably priced sours.

The service is great and the vibe is very laid back.

This is a must visit place if you happen to be in Denver.

New Image Brewing Company

in Arvada, Colorado

4.26/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 3.96
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 3.75

a really neat new brewery right in downtown arvada, a couple of east coast dudes moved out to start it up from what i understand, and they seem to be way ahead of the curve. the space is cool, the brew house itself isnt visible, but they have barrels stacked full of beer all over the place. there is a long bar on the right when you walk in, sort of east/west oriented, some long tables, room for maybe 50 or so comfortably, and a small open kitchen in the back. i did not eat here, but the food looked fun. they had only four or five of their own beers on, still getting up and running with their own stuff, but the beers they had were good. one dubbed a "vermont style" ipa was quite impressive, and they had some brett stuff on too. they supplemented their own beers with a rather heady list of guest beers on tap, so there should be something for everyone here. the service was fantastic, i met several people working here and all were super friendly, responsive, interested, and articulate. nice job staffing the place up. looks like they are making a name for themselves already, i have seen quite a few of their tap handles around town. looking forward to see how far these guys can run with this place, this was one of the better new brewery experiences i have had in awhile. great start!

Southern Grist Brewing Co.

Its great to have Southern Grist in my neighborhood! Their beers have been high quality from the day they opened and i love their format. They brew a lot of different beers and variations of their beers. I want to be able to try something new every time i go in, and i can pretty much have a whole flight of new-to-me beers every time i come in.

Patrick's Gaslamp Pub

in San Diego, California

3.66/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 3.66
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4.25 | selection: 2.5

Patrick's is located in the Gaslamp District in San Diego. It's a fairly small, traditional establishment. There's a bar along one end and some tables and chairs along the other side.

Today wasn't too crowded but I've walked by when this place was packed. The guy behind the counter was friendly and attentive.

It's not a place for craft beer drinkers. The selection is very limited. I knew that going in.

The Civil Life Brewing Company

in Saint Louis, Missouri

4.76/5  rDev +14.1% | Avg: 4.17
vibe: 5 | quality: 5 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.5

I cannot imagine a better vibe for a brew pub, because that's EXACTLY what it is. Modeled after traditional English pubs, this place is designed to be social. Many board games, picnic tables, sweet patio, dog-friendly, a library, darts, hook and loop game, walk-up window, growler-friendly, stand-up tables... if you come here and aren't social then you are probably antisocial. Not to mention it is all this deceptively built into a warehouse! Oh yeah, no computers, they keep your tab with a chalk tally on the bar in front of you! Bad ass!
Quality is as good as it gets. It's clean and there's not a bad beer in the house. All home-made, all excellent.
Service is walk-up only. Sometimes annoying, but it is run smoothly at this joint.
Selection only loses points for lack of today's preferred, in-your-face type of styles. They focus on traditional English stes with some exceptions. All their beers are excellent and well-made.
Food is good, but limited. No kitchen, just a sandwich station with soup and a few other offerings.
Awesome place. A hidden jem in the exploding StL craft beer scene!

Perennial Artisan Ales

in Saint Louis, Missouri

3.99/5  rDev -9.9% | Avg: 4.43
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 3.25 | food: 4.5

Vibe is meh. Wide open space feels emptyish. Few board games, darts, lame sofa, no TVs in one of the country's best sports towns, nice patio... that's it.
Quality is great. Never a bad beer here, but sometimes a bit one-dimensional, messy on busy days, awkward water service.
I'd like better service. Different staff members provide different levels of service and attitude. Slow on a good day.
Selection is weak. Rarely a hoppy offering. Rarely a big-ticket beer. Weekly test batches are cool, but I'd like to see more marquee offerings more often.
Food is great, selection is small.

Side Project Cellar

in Maplewood, Missouri

4.76/5  rDev +0.4% | Avg: 4.74
vibe: 4.75 | quality: 5 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.5

Vibe is world-class, the only point deduction is due to the smll size, loud atmosphere when crowded (which is often), and single bathroom... just one... for everyone.
Quality is the best possible. Period.
Service is excellent except for the awkwardly-shaped bar which is crowded on a good day, but the staff does their best to serve and do well.
Selection is about as good as can be for the size. That being said, it is smallish and $ is on the high end.
Overall an exceptional establishment. Any criticisms were very specific and nit-picky.

Weird vibe here, as it was also a casino and bowling alley, and had that dark atmosphere. Minimal brews on tap, of varying quality. Good happy hour pricing, however. Lots of bar staff kept asking how we were doing.

Bin 707 Foodbar

in Grand Junction, Colorado

3.93/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 3.93
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 2 | food: 5

I felt inclined to review this place b.c. of the super good food, beer, and service. Ambiance is excellent. Service is Colorado friendly and so is the vibe. It's a food place first, the beer selection, bottles only, was pretty small, but solid: Evil Twin, Mikaheller, funkwerks, etc. The bartender knew his stuff, ambience was great, and the food is on par with any major city in America. This is absolutely a must stop if you are within an hour of G.J.

The Ale House

3.98/5  rDev -5.5% | Avg: 4.21
vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.25 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.75 | food: 3.75

I hit this place up 3 times in 2 visits to G.J. Service ranged from great to barely o.k. (take order, drop check & run) with minimal to no conversation about beer. Service score was weighted for how busy the place was. I sat a the bar twice and outside once. Great space, airy, outside is beautiful (dependent on weather, obviously). Selection is solid, a bunch of local & specialty taps, around 30 total. Food is definitely above average for a brewpub & the happy hour is a great deal. Would suggest avoiding entree type dishes & stick to apps. Overall, I would say the place is a don't miss.

Solid place, relaxed vibe. Can get full pours or flights. Seating is pretty much right in the treehouse. Have a decent variety of beers most days and food trucks on the weekend. Great place to relax and have a few.

Easy to find on Southbound Rt. 9 near the McDonalds in Wappingers Falls. Its located behind a coffee shop and across from a pharmacy. Small brewing operations which are located in the tasting room. About 8 bar stools at a minimalistic bar, and cool orange walls. Beer menu was handed to me and unfortunately a few were not available. They had a pale ale, english porter, hefe, amber, and a Roggenbier. Only had time for one pint and the pale ale was good. Service is very friendly here and the brewer was talking to patrons. Worthy of a stop if in the area.

This place is long and narrow and has a nice big wood bar and brick walls. There are several deer heads mounted on the wall, and it is rather dark. The beer list showed 24 taps, 8 cans, and 8 bottles. A few of these are local NYC beers and one offs from other breweries. Beers were fresh and there seems to be a good turnover here. Service was prompt despite the fact it was packed. My visit was enjoyable, and I will be back in the future.

Great bottle shop. They have tastings on Friday and Saturday to introduce new beer and wine to their customers. I like the selection of singles to make your own six packs. Knowledgeable staff is always friendly.

vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 3.5 | food: 4

I randomly saw this place while driving and made a mental note to stop there on the way back from my ultimate destination. This is a really cool spot to enjoy some craft brews and grab a bite to eat. Small, tidy, good bar space, tables, and a small back patio. I sampled a few of the beers (four- and six-pour sampler flights available), and while none really blew me away, there was some solid stuff, and I'd say these guys are on the right track. Options included an APA, IPA, APL, cocoa porter (my favorite), saison, and a few other things. I had a chat with one of the owners who was super friendly, as was the rest of the staff. Seems like they have some good ideas for the future including working with barrel aging. Merch and growlers also available. They just opened their kitchen, and their menu is actually quite impressive, with some house-made items (spent-grain bread, chips, etc.), and even a kids' menu.

I am going to keep an eye on this place, and I'll most likely be back to visit next time I'm in the area.

The beer and the food are fantastic. Unfortunately, they have been know to put a hockey or soccer game on in September and October, which borders on a capital offense.

This place is a must on Georgia game days. The food is fantastic, the beer is always great along with the service, and there's always a good game on to decompress after the long walk from Sanford Stadium.

I visited Four Peaks back in 2008 for the UGA at ASU game. It was an oasis, and the beer was great. The only place in Tempe I long to visit again, especially with Montis gone.

Only 6 beers on tap during my visitbut at least these had a good range beers included an imperial stout, a sour, IPA, DIPA, and a saison. With no sound damping, the concrete walled taproom is loud and reverberating, even without a crowd.
Friendly service but less knowledgeable than expected.
Biggest surprise: plenty of free parking at this urban location.

This place was awesome! I got to try so many new beers here from the east coast. The beer was great and so was the food. I ended up kinda drunk because of all the beers I drank. lol But it was still amazing!!!
