Nothing else in NC even comes close to this establishment - IMHO. The giant space is all about the beer as far as I am concerned. As mentioned by the other reviewers, this place is huge. I would not hesitate to bring a party of 20 in at any time.

The bar was pretty full, and I was eventually able to land a seat at the end. They had $3 Hoppyums on, so I started with one, and ordered up a cheeseburger with pub fries - they were very good. The Hoppyum IPA was dead on, on par with any IPA I have tried anywhere else.

For dessert I ordered up a Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout, and it lived up to the hype. I could have drank 3 more, but since I was driving I quit after 1, I am bring a designated driver when I return.

Do yourself a favor and make it here.

I came early on a Thursday. It was slow, but the staff were very beer-knowledgable.
I wish they had a guest tap to add to the mix.

Went here for the BA Sexual Chocolate release. The release event was awesome, one of the best I've been to and well organized. Plenty of space inside the brewery/restaurant, friendly staff and good beer, no complaints here!

Drive up to the bba sexual chocolate release this weekend. Super well run. Let us as soon as possible. Drafts were quick in coming. Giant sausage and buscuits were inexpensive and desperately needed.

Went for the BA Sexual Chocolate release. Brewpub was busy. Lots of diners. Beer selection wasn't as big as I'd hoped, but they had the BASC on tap prior to the release which was nice.

Two rooms. Wood tables with a long bar. Has a back room past the kitchen where they held the bottle share. More like a warehouse than an actual room.

Service was ok. Beertender kinda passed over people a few times, but they were semi-busy.

Overall, not bad. Seen better, seen worse. About average.

Stopped in on our way from Raleigh to Asheville on a Sunday afternoon. The whole neighborhood was pretty quiet and there was plenty of space in the dining and bar area. Very friendly waitstaff. Nice variety of food to choose from. We brought our one year old daughter and felt very comfortable having her there. Had the IPA of the Month for July. It was excellent. I wish we could've stayed longer. Definitely recommend this to anyone in the area.

Foothills is a Winston Salem staple and they make some damn good beers. They usually have a pretty good selection of stuff on tap and you can fill growlers and get bottles to go. The service has been up and down everytime I've been there. If you are a regular or semi regular it's pretty good but sometimes you just kind of sit around without anyone to tend to you or fill up your water.

The food is ok. It's standard pub food with some unique offerings from the chef. I think the calamari and loaded fries are the best apps on their menu. The Cuban, fish and chips and caesar salad have all been ok. Overall a great place for beer especially on celebrations like Sexual Chocolate release!
