A place to seek out when in Ann Arbor let me tell ya,its situated on State street right pretty much on the campus of UofM its right the grounds are right across the street.Friendly atmosphere with what seemed alot of regulars who the bartender knew and knew what they drinking,70 taps that day with 3 beers on cask wich were Bell's porter,DFH 90 min,and Rogue impy stout.What selection of taps though ranging from Flemish brown Duchesse De Bourgogne,to local big hoppy dipa's Arcadia Hopouth,to Baltic porter like Kuhnenn Penetration porter,to off the wall different styeles like Short's Nicie Spicie and alot in between.Five Bell's offerings always on tap,the food I didnt have but the stilton fries sounded pretty good thebartender was cool and veryknowledgable about all the drafts and if he wasnt good enough there is a little booklet we got showing and describing all the beers on hand.A great bar one of the best I have been to I wish I could hit in the fall on Saturday night when my beloved Wolverines are on the gridiron.

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.
