Me and my wife went to The Vintage for the first time last night and really left impressed with the place.Located in the old Greensborough section of downtown G-boro its quite a large builing tucked away from downtown a little but its very easy to get to.The decor is pretty cool somewhat Savannah-like at least it has the same look and feel of a few place we have to down there.A nice size bottled beer list albeit a bit pricey,tap selections were Highland St. Thresea pale,Thomas Creek vanilla cream ale,Foothills Peoples Porter,and a cherry lambic not sure wich one.Bottles ranged in price from $4.50 to $23.00.Food was awesome, the small plates we hade were just great,the baked lemon feta was the shiznit.Bartender was very nice and helpful and we got a free drink for whatever reason.We'll be back just as much for the food as the libations,I hope it stays open for a long time.

All I gotta say this place is a little weird. It isn't my type of place or crowd, but they do have a good beer selection. On Fridays, they have 1/2 price beers, which is good. However, it seemed more of a "speakeasy" type place. Very dark and mellow. I know people like that, and that's fine, but just not my scene. I didn't try the food, just had the beer. They do serve the beer in appropriate glassware which I thought was cool. People who work there are knowledgeable and are good with recommendations. In the end, if you are looking for something different to try, go to Vintage.

I stopped over here after hitting up Natty Greens. I have to give them props for the overall look of the building which was outstanding. Really nice older look with classic architecture and nice appearence. Inside seemed laid back, but a touch ritzy for me, decent bottle selection with a heavy lean on some of the more common belgians and I would assume a fine wine list. A nice little place to take a date for sure, but I really enjoyed Natty's a bit more. But to each his own. I would still recommend the place for sure.

From other reviews, I was expecting a lot here. We may have been in on an off night, but I was not blown away. It was pretty empty and that could have been part of it. I did not find the beer selection to be that great. There may have been a handful of Euro import bottles and some local taps. This is not what I would call a beer-focused place. I had a Foothills Octoberfest which was good. The food is sort-of tapas. We split a few items. Some were quite good other ok. The service was fine, but not great. I may give them another try if I return to the area.

Went here back in the winter when it was taken over by the new ownership. I have yet to be back since but I did sign up for there updates and they have really nice weekly specials. I thing that they have done on a regular basis is to have beer diners and the lineup has been stellar so far, Foothills comes to mind. The location is nice because it is within walking distance to Natty Greene's, Mellow Mushroom and the other bars/clubs in the Greensboro downtown scene. When I was there they primarily had beer in bottles but since then the owners have made it a point to age some taps(Foothills Porter and Pilsner are mainstays) I have heard from one of the owners that the beer choices will be a top priority which is refreshing. If it weren't for the fact that I have a family at home I would certainly make my way down there more often. I do someday plan on attending a brewer's diner and I suggest you do the same.

Vintage 301 has a nice rotating stock of beers venturing out from the standard styles to include sour ales, farmhouse ales, lambics, and more. A few beers on tap and thirty or forty bottles to choose from.

The food comes in the form of small plates and large plates, with all of the dishes being similar to tapas. Lots of good nibblers to eat while drinking from the beer or wine list.

A variety of seating: couches, tables, bartops, and a bar plus outside seating during the warmer nights.

Fantastic service. Very friendly and professional. Staff is knowledgeable as well.

Great place with a HUGE selection of craft beers! Inviting atmosphere, knowledgable friendly staff. The food is amazing, seasonal local food.

The beer list has a little bit of everything, and is constantly changing. Definitely check this place out! They just put in two draft beers and are planning for a few more. Most of the beers are American labels but I think that depends mainly on the economy! They do have a nice wide selection of eastern European beers.

This is the place to go for quality beers, especially on Fridays everything is half off!
