I visited Liberty Street Brewing on my way to a concert last night and I can't say enough good things about this place. It's beautifully decorated with a gorgeous bar, dim but not dark lighting, hardwood floors and solid colors on the wall. It's exactly how I would decorate my pub - or house for that matter - if I had one. There's nothing fake, nothing gimmicky, just a really nice, casual, relaxing atmosphere. There's even an upstairs that I didn't have time to check out.

And the beer is second to almost none. Only the rock stars of brewpubs like Three Floyds or Founders can boast a better lineup. Every single beer I tried was fresh, flavorful, perfectly balanced and true to style while maintaining a slight individuality. Even the light blonde ale was delicious. When I dropped in they featured nine beers ranging from light lager to honey porter and stout. Pretty much everything is over 6%, with the Honey Porter topping the charts at 7.9%. My favorites were the IPA (citrus, huge nose, slight sweetness) and the stout (strong for style at 6.3%, chocolate, easy drinking).

They have a small menu featuring food that doesn't require utensils. Chips with dips, pizza and chicken chili with a bread bowl, for example. I had the chili, which was quite tasty though the bread bowl tasted a tad stale. It was like navy bean soup but a tad thicker with chunks of chicken. But if nothing fits your fancy, feel free to order in from one of the several menus they keep on hand of local establishments that will deliver to the pub.

The bartender was knowledgeable and pretty decent. She was a bit slow at times to pick up my check or see how I was doing, but she was the only one on staff and I was reading a magazine; obviously in no hurry to be getting out of the place.

Overall, I'm very excited about this place. I'll stop in every time I'm anywhere near Plymouth. I might even get my mini-kegs filled here soon. Love it.

One of my go to sources, being close to where
I work. Kind of a lame vibe on the inside (it used to be a wine bar, I've heard). The beer and service more than makes up for the decor. Ususally they have 8-10 brews on, and they do some great seasonals, and have solid flagships. I love the Pub House Brown, a dynamite dark mild, and Barber's Garden, brewed with hops grown right out the back door. Great service, and solid beers.

Low light, quiet and chill place (6 pm on a Saturday). Not a big place at all. About half full while I was here. I imagine parking can be an issue as it is in a neighborhood setting.

Solid selection of their own brews and a good price point with $5 for 20 oz. pours. Bar staff was attentive, but not that familiar with the offerings (they know the names but not the qualities of each) from my observation.

They don't have a kitchen, so the only food is simple snack items

Food is rated low b/c of the limited menu but not b/c of its quality.

It is a very quiet place, a little small and not crowded at all with that being said the service is great, it's not loud, the selection is flavorful and they brew the beer right in front of you.

I knew Joe, the beer guide, when he lived in my neighborhood. The beers he made when he was just getting started we're amazing, sure do miss those days, especially in the summer. However, the beer he makes now just ROCKS!!! Just wish I lived within walking distance!

Just stumbled upon Liberty last night. This is a very cozy bar right in small town Plymouth. It has the look of an old store on the inside. This is more of an intimate place compared to most other bars. Great place to stop at to chat. The best beer available in my opinion is the Red Glare Amber Ale. I wish I would of have more but I wanted to try as much as possible. A neat feature here is the 'sampler'. You get your choice of 4 beers all in half pints. The only food available is appetizer type stuff so I recommend eating before you get here. Fortunately for me I wasn't buying so I cannot comment on the prices.
