Marsibilio's Trattoria

in Mayville, Wisconsin

Amazing little bistro. Slightly shabby-chic vibe with a small bar and a few tables. I was not prepared for the beer selection nor the amazing food. Top quality with lots of local ingredients and a menu based on what's available. The service could not have been better, friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable about beer.
Great selection of bottled beers including lots of local stuff, rarities and superb imports. They've also started a collaring program. Th "30" bottles listed above is a gross underestimate. Was thrilled to have a Zombie Dust and some excellent Wisconsin brews.
The food was top notch Italian fare with handmade pasta and fresh ingredients. Not inexpensive but still a value.

Had a blast at 3 Floyds. Had about a 40-minute wait to get into the pub on an early Friday afternoon, but it was worth the wait. The atmosphere is metal geek with a touch of beer nerd. The service was friendly and knowledgeable and fast. The food was great. Don't skip dessert. Crazy good thyme sponge cake with sage ice cream. And the beers, of course, were fabulous. I'd been looking forward to this for some time and it did not disappoint.
There was a line for the to-go beers but it moved along fast and efficiently and the selection, including Zombie Dust, was excellent.

Lovely old pub and worth a visit just to see the inside. Very good service and more than 20 taps. Lots on cask which were solid and a fair price. I would recommend.

I visited here just after opening on Saturday and it was quite full. Decent selection of fullers beers but service was poor. I found the inside very cluttered as the had a lot of things up for the rugby world cup. Just an average pub really.

Great selection of Australian handcraft beers as well as beer from around the globe. Located next to a museum, and across the street from the free "city circle" tram stop. Sunny outdoor seating with live music on Saturday. Pretty decent pub grub too.

Atlas Brewing Company

-Standard bar atmosphere. Clean and comfortable but no charm.
-Pretty sure this was an isolated incident, but personnel was understaffed for the sudden Sunday surge (one bartender, one barback, maybe one server). Bartender seemed flustered at first, but still handled the rush well, and by the end of my visit turned out to be pretty cool and friendly. I'm chalking this up to a bad random incident/managerial issue.
-Good range of beers, all well priced, but the overall quality of these beers was simply ok to pretty good; nothing great or outstanding, nothing bad either. They offer samples, and thus 'flights'. Growlers available.
-Standard bar food- fried stuff, pizza, burgers. I had the poutine, which was alright. I heard some people raving about the pizza, so I'll trust their word and bump up my score.

Good beer, good food, good atmosphere. Atlas is the place to go because it's good and close and accessible, but not the place you go to get a great beer or impress out-of-town visitors.

This place is insane. The food is incredible... I have not had better food at a beer place before. The draft list is an ever rotating list of mostly local beer with other great stuff mixed in. Ask for the reserve list! Insane cantillon, 3f, Todd the axeman, great stuff available. Bartender Lucho is fucking awesome! Super nice, knowledgable and fun.

Do not go here! Owner posts that he has hard to get beers and when you go there they don't have them and then he try's to sell you something else. Way better options and HONEST vendors in the area. Never again!

Nice, clean, friendly place to have a beer and watch some soccer or rugby on one of the two flat screens. Beer is 8 taps and 2 cask ales with heavy British imports favored. Some local beer options and delicious British pub fare. Nice scotch selection and knowledgeable, approachable staff added up to a good overall first impression.

Decent food, good service, but their beer is really pretty bad. Even their water doesn't taste great (they may make the beer with it...). All of their beers seem to have the same odd aftertaste.

Been to both their previous brewery site and their newly constructed site. The new place is much larger and is an ideal place to meet, drink good beer, listen to music, and of course eat great food provided by the food trucks. I recommend if you are in the Richmond area that you visit this brewery and sample many of their fine beers. However, watch out for the spiced peanuts you may purchase. Some are really hot and spicy!

Cranker's Brewery

3.46/5  rDev -1.1% | Avg: 3.5
vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3.5 | selection: 3.25 | food: 3.25

Crankers Restaurant and Brewery is a full service restaurant and brewery. The brewery is connected to the restaurant. There are two separate entrances, one directly to the brewery and one to the restaurant.

The restaurant primarily serves American fare and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Crankers serves breakfast anytime which I took advantage of. The breakfast of eggs, hash browns, sausage, and toast was of average quality and value.

The brewery has kind of a pub/sports bar feel and atmosphere. Their open taps were a blonde, IPA, Stout, and Irish Red Ale. I had their easy drinking Bulldog Irish Rd Ale that was right on style.

My visit at Crankers was an enjoyable one and would recommend a stop-in if in the Big Rapids area.

This is a beer bar that I have no problem dragging my wife to because everything else is so good. Always a solid and varied tap list to go along with a menu featuring mostly pub grub. Service has always been good and have never been disappointed with the food. It's over an hour drive and I've been there 4-5 times in the last year, that should give you an idea of my opinion. The tap list is extensive and descriptive.

Really good beer selection on tap (tasters, half pints, full glasses) and wide selection of bottles to go (bottles can be a bit pricey, but some stuff is rare enough where you can’t find it anywhere else). Medium-small sitting area. Very friendly staff that is knowledgeable.

Head owner/brewer Kevin previously worked at Russian River (also Speakeasy, etc.), has been open a few months at this point. Limited selection when I visited (IPA, Pilsner, Porter). Tiny tasting room, bar snacks only, no kitchen.

Grunst Brothers Party Store

To coin a phrase from Oldsmobile "This is not your father's Oldsmobile" replace 'father's Oldsmobile' with 'Grunst Brothers' to read: This is not your GRUNST BROTHERS was my reaction when I recently visited. It has been many, many...years since I last was in Grunst Brothers and has it changed! The once dingy party store has been remodeled and boy it is an improvement.

Grunst also has considerably increased their offerings. They have a selection of Michigan and other U.S. brewers, German, Belgian brewers, etc.

Being from the Metro Detroit area I am a bit spoiled with a large number of stores and a good selection. However, as far as I am concerned Grunst Brothers offers the best selection of craft beer in Big Rapids.

Funk Brewing Company

4.14/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 4.05
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4

Stopped by on a Saturday, got there at noon when they open and was surprised to see the small bar crowded. I learned that a homebrew club from Reading was making the rounds and Funk was their first stop. Small L shaped bar with seating for 15-20 placed in the front of a warehouse space housing the tanks. The bartender was pleasant and attentive and he regaled us with stories from his recent trip to GABF. I had a sampler, everything was good or better. At some point, the bartender broke out a can of recently canned Citrus which was really good, my favorite of the day, I left with a couple of 6 packs. They don't have any food, but there is a pizza place nearby that is supposedly pretty good and they have no problem with you dropping a pie on the bar and eating it there. I believe they have food trucks that stop by as well.

Wide range of American and European beers on tap, always something new to try. You can also grab a bottle from the refrigerator shelves and have them open it for $1 “corkage”. Good snacks and food as well.

Famous for the name, but their beer world class across 15+ different styles. Best to go early (11am-12pm) or later afternoon (3-5pm) depending on the weekend.

Went on the tour with my wife. Really great tour, knowledgeable guide, samples and all that good stuff. Very impressive new facility. Unfortunately I am not a huge fan of Breckenridge beers - which dips the score a bit. Even if you are not the biggest fan of their stuff it's definitely worth a trip. This is a beautiful and exciting new campus for them with a state of the art brewing facility and a restaurant (didn't have the food) with tons of Breck brews and many other craft selections. Also, a very nice beer garden. All and all, well worth the visit and the $3 for the tour (which includes a pint, samples and a 90 min tour, great deal!!!)

Out of the way but worth the drive: this place probably has the best selection of bottles I've seen in the Lehigh Valley. Lost Abbey Red Poppy, Deschutes Mirror Mirror...you name it. The staff seems knowledgeable and friendly.

Wow, what a disappointment. This place is now only a shadow of what it use to be. 90% of the floor is now dedicated to wine and they are now calling themselves a "wine store". This is no longer the place to go for craft beer or beer selection in general. Nothing but mainstream beer is cold and very little other beer is available. Beer lovers, save yourself a trip.

Totally enjoyed our visit to the West Sides most excellent brewery and eatery. This place, while a touch rough around the edges as far as an upscale experience, offers some excellent service, a knowledgeable and friendly staff, and some fantastic food with solid beverage offerings. Soft pretzels and beer cheese is the bomb. The screw burger was most excellent with a fried egg, jalapenos, and onion rings. The fish sandwich was also huge and excellent. Beer was solid with good hefeweizen, solid kolsh, and some unique fruit ales (peach and cherry). Oktoberfest and porter was solid as well. Very open and simple inside, a touch grungy, but comfortable. By the time you eat any of the food you will forget the decor and enjoy the great food and solid ales and porters. The chef and his wife are quite a team and great to talk to. A must for Cincinnati-ans.
