Great burgers. Great beer selection. There are frequently nice surprises on the draft list. The guy who orders their beer really knows what he's doing.

Finally made it here after moving from Ann Arbor and was rewarded nicely. Really reminds me of being back in A2. They randomly had CCB Cafe Con Leche on tap! My face went "!!!$$$$!$!$!$!!!!$$!!!". Some other CCB brews that included their standard stuff in addition to seasonals and one-offs. Really a nice surprise. Burger was good as was the wife’s chicken breast. Decent service and perfectly reasonable prices on the beer given their selection. Unexpectedly awesome selection on tap. Will be returning.

Wow they have really vamped up their beer selection. Ok the Top is a very hipster eclectic spot. Its decorated to look like a 1960's house with odd relics lining the walls that it seems slightly like a garage sale threw up on the walls, but in the best way possible. I have to say their selection rivals the other craft beer bars in the area and their a restaurant. Their food is excellent. And have a lte night menu. But the selection of beers is great. I beleive they have 24 or 36 taps, large bottle list. Last time I was there I had Marshal Zhukov by cigar city on draft! First time I have had it. Highly recommend this place. Oh and cans of CCB are only $4 which is some of teh best craft beer prices ive seen in the area

Good and getting better

A few years ago, I'd go here to eat but could not really recommend The Top for its beer selection. Now that's changed and they're offering solid craft and import beer choices on draught and in bottles. Last week, I had a very tasty Lagunita's Undercover Investigation ale. I can't wait to see what they'll have next on their three rotating guest taps.

A couple of warnings: The noise level inside gets pretty loud as the bar fills up. In good weather, seats on the back patio go quickly, so be prepared to sit inside or wait at the bar (with a great beer).
