Cool little pub, even though its so close to U of M.

I went here in June 2005 and was amazed to see Victory on tap, as it hadn't yet reached the Lansing area. They also had beer from Short's which was great to see. They seem to try really hard to have not just a huge selection, but a selection from many, many breweries.

The food was really good pub food. My wife and I split the chicken curry fries, which were fantastic and got really good sandwiches as well. For beers, I had the Short's brown and the Victory Golden Monkey, and both were fresh and excellent. I've heard stories about their Belgians being bad, but I didn't try any, so I can't very well comment. Anyways, it's a nice stop in town and I know I'll be back if I'm in the area.

Ashley's is a classic in the area. Always has many great offerings on tap. Food is good, friendly helpful staff and a really great atmosphere to have a beer or two and relax. There may be newer dogs moving into town but Ashley's in an Ann Arbor mainstay. Don't count them out!

Great spot for the craft beer junkie, only knock from my perspective is location - basically center of UM campus makes getting around, parking, and overall crowd in the bar a little too cramped for me. Have had great service on every occasion, the taplist is usually ridiculous, and the food variety is extensive and tasty. Must stop place if in the area.

Love Ashley's, my first pub. This is the place where I was first introduced to Bell's Oberon, which opened the doors to there being something other than BMC for me. Huge draft and bottle selection, with lots of Belgians. If you just have a hour on campus and want beer, stop here.
