Brouwerij De Dolle Brouwers

vibe: 4.75 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 4.75 | food: 3.75

Definitely in my top 3 breweries in the world to visit. I've been there 5 times. Would go again and again and again. Kris and Els are absolutely awesome. Kris is a mad genius and i love how the bar feels. there's an outdoor patio in the summer, lit candles on the tables in the fall/winter and lots of beer flowing. do NOT drive there, since the high ABV beer will put you tits up real quick.
the brewery tour (30 min) is worth it if you dig cool and old brewery set-ups. Kris will pull some Reserva from the barrel for the groups to try (if he's in a good mood).
their swag for sale's always great.
this is my home away from home.

If you happen to be in Riga, or anywhere in the Baltic, this place is not to be missed. They have large selection of surprisingly fantastic Latvian beer. They also have a great, and very reasonably priced, menu of classic Latvian cuisine. It is an eclectic mix of local residents, musicians, students, businessmen and vagabonds. This really is a special place.

Nice friendly place. Resturant and brewpub. Food looked very good. 6 of their own bets on tap with a couple others. Service fast and courteous.

vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 3.75 | selection: 4.25

Visited on 11/8/2015 - it's basically down the street and around the corner from De Biertempel. Not a large establishment by any means - a small bar area (maybe 5-6 stools if I recall) and a small number of tables. The five of us took up an entire corner of the bar. The taplist was fairly limited and not particularly impressive; however, the bottle list was quite extensive. I enjoyed some De Dolle and De Struise beers during my visit - my father-in-law fell in love with Black Albert. All served in appropriate glassware and lambic/gueuze were served in baskets. Prices were a bit higher than the other establishments in the area; however, there were some rarities on the menu - they had Zenne Y Frontera for 69 euro, but I couldn't pull the trigger. Food was limited to cheese and charcuterie - nothing mind-blowing. Service was prompt initially, but refills were a bit on the slow side. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town; however, it wasn't my favorite place.

Tired Hands Brewing Company

in Ardmore, Pennsylvania

5/5  rDev +12.9% | Avg: 4.43
vibe: 5 | quality: 5 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | food: 5

Ever since Tired Hands opened three years ago, I've been going regularly and have tried at least a hundred of their different beers and not once have I been disappointed. The people are great, the food is local, unique, and delicious, and the beer is my favorite in the world. Tired Hands saisons are mind blowing and ever since the opening of the ferm and the new foudres, they have changed a bit in flavor and all for the better. Their stouts are decadent and smooth. I'm mostly into IPAs and they're are unlike any others ..silky, creamy, perfect carbonation levels, low IBUs and DANK, citrusy pine tastes.

That said, the only argument I ever hear is that "all of their IPS taste the same" ..which is fair, but I think some people fail to realize that just because the name of a beer is wildly different from another, does not mean that the beer itself will differ. There are nearly 300 beer reviews on this website for them and that might not be half of what they've tapped. It's common for TH to have two IPAs on tap with the exact same malt profile but hopped with singularly with two different hops.

But perhaps the best thing about Tired Hands is that they're constantly pushing the boundaries in tasteful ways ..both in their food and beer. Long live Milkshake IPAs and bow down to the Alien Church..

Essential Bean (EB) Coffee & Pub

3.39/5  rDev -1.5% | Avg: 3.44
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.25 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.25 | food: 3.75

This brewpub recently opened to serving beer brewed on site (don't know how long it's been a coffee house). The brewery is located in a strip mall that is situated along highway M-37 in this small community, and is easily found on the north wing of this building that faces the off-street. The interior is classic coffee shop with small tables and upholstered furniture with coffee drinkers sitting around and using their PCs, but it works for being a pub too since there is a small bar with seating for four.

My wife and I stopped here to try their beers as well as to have a late lunch. They were not busy. There are 8 taps, however, only 4 beers were available at the time of our visit because they were trying to leave open the empty taps in preparation for their 12 Days of Christmas event. We ordered a sampler flight of the 4 beers, and then ordered a pint of the one that we liked best. One tap blew just as our sampler was being poured, so we essentially only had three beers, although the bartender let us drink the ounce that did make it into the glass. That one was No X in Espresso Stout, and it along with the Pineapple IPA were the two most notable. Each of the 4 beers was brewed properly to style, although the two blonde ales were just average. We gave an overall score of 3.25 (out of 5) to the 4 beers.

The food here is a combination of breakfast sandwiches and deli-style sandwiches. The food that we ordered was good. It would have been nice to try more of their beers to get a better idea of how good their beers are overall, so we will likely go back again to try others. (A peek at the list on their website of the 12 beers for the Christmas even was very enticing, so maybe we'll get back there soon since this place is not that far from our home.)

I won't be getting anymore of the Citrus Park brews. I've had 4 and they were all very watered down beers. $6 for watered down beer? I'll pass. Other than that it's a decent place, great tap selection, and good service.

My first time at this particular Winking Lizard. Service was a bit on the slow side, but we stopped in prior to a Cavs game, so it was certainly understandable. Tremendous beer selection as generally reasonable prices. Food is above average pub fare. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

Tough call if you are looking for a traditional pub vibe...this place is more of a US craft pub vibe. The cask selection is not that (5), but still pretty good and not the same stuff you get everywhere else. Plenty of bottles as well, but I didn't really look into that. Food was good, and price was about what you would expect for the area. Not a bargain, but reasonable. I'd still recommend Bon Accord over this place if you want great cask ale (or whisky), but this place may be easier to get to depending on where you are staying.

Outstanding selection of whiskey and 4 or 5 very good cask selections, plus bottles. Both pints I had on cask were beers I haven't been able to get elsewhere. Atmosphere is very much a classic pub vibe. Overally, I'd rate this place overall a notch below Bon Accord on every aspect (vibe, whisky, cask selection). Maybe a little better bottle selection here.

Stopped here for a couple beers before the Cavs game. Excellent selection, albeit a bit on the pricey side. Didn't have anything to eat, but everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. The place was packed, but the service was attentive and quick. Will definitely be back.

Shout out to the owner Nick and server Alexis for the hospitality and great service. Can't say enough about this place

Matt Rambo and family have a ridiculously good selection, and he's always looking for ways to improve it. He asks customers from outside Colorado (of which he has many) to bring in lesser-known beers from their hometowns , so that he can sample them and put them on the shelves . Or maybe he just really loves beer. Either way, he's exactly the kind of guy you want curating your beer. He's also super- friendly and knowledgeable. If you're headed to the area, it's worth waiting to buy your beer from Rambo's.

Six taps and an interior with furniture constructed from new lumber lends a clean, rustic and somewhat outdoorsy feel to the joint. There is indeed food available, though I did not try any on this visit. A flight of all six taps costs only $4, and while there isn't a large staff to speak of (indeed, the sole gentleman behind the counter appeared to be the only worker on-site), the seating/dining area was far from crowded. Several large TVs adorn the walls, and while the feel is definitely rustic, the building seems very new.

New brewery right outside of Ghent area. A little isolated and more low-key than the other breweries that are in heart of Ghent so a more relaxed vibe; very enjoyable to sit outside in afternoon and enjoy a peaceful beer (they have food truck and cornhole along outside seating area). This place is worth checking out, especially after new year (2016) when they have more of their beers on tap; there are 8 taps but right now they only have three beers to serve.

Classic place and a must visit for cask and whisky fans. Hundreds of bottles of scotch and 10 very well kept cask offerings, including a couple GBBF gold medal winners. Haven't found a better kept cask selection yet in Glasgow (this isn't London). Staff was friendly and willing to talk beer and scotch aplenty...although I was there at a very quiet time. Close enough to walk from the train station if the weather isn't too bad. Food was regular pub fare, but price was reasonable.

I love this place. Only negative is that it took FOREVER to get a table. But not to worry, we stood at the bar & had some great beers. They had an incredible tap list the night I went, Singlecut 200 Watt DIPA, MBC Lunch, NS Ever Weise, Alpine Nelson, etc. The bartender even poured me a small shot of EW before I ordered it to make sure I liked it. Food is pretty outstanding as well. This place should have much higher ratings.

This is probably your best bet for craft beer in Lawrence, as far as to go beers. They have quite a few coolers dedicated to craft beers, including mix packs, and bombers. Prices are reasonable and service has been adequate. I;ve been there on Fridays when they were doing samples and had the brewers in house. Anytime your in L and need brews to go, this is it.

This place is massive and is located near the mall/shop area away from downtown L. The beers were average and they serve them in huge portions. The food was adequate for a sports bar/brewery vibe. It is family friendly, and probably worth checking out once or twice.

Family friendly with out door seating. This place is located near campus and Pt's and is worth checking out.

A pretty good craft brewery in Topeka, and generally the first place I check out when in town. The food is good, and they prepare alot from scratch. They have tvs all over so its a good place to catch the game. Atmosphere is neat with alot of exposed wood interior and large windows to view the brewery. Beers are good, and theyve won several medals at GABF. They have several German style brews, but also several pale ales and ipas. Family friendly, and they have out door seating. One item to note however, park near other cars and the street, as while we were there several cars in the lot behind the facility were broken into. Better yet, use Lyft.

OC is a national chain sports bar and pizza joint. There selection is generally slightly above average and if you can find a craft draft you like they have a large bottle list, and you're bound to find at least one that is suitable. Food is better than normal chain rest. food. In Topeka this is not a bad destination.

BW3's is a national chain sports bar. They had about 25 taps, which included at least 3-4 crafts from Cincinnati (and not Sam Adams or Angry Orchard). I had Madtree on this occasion. Food is blah, but it is a chain sports bar. Atmosphere was neat, and off the norm for Bw3's. It is about the only place in Wilmington to get craft beer.
