really like this place and they amazing IPAs they craft. They are currently renovating to increase production and improve the tasting room. Friendly crowd of regulars and semi brewery workers are normally there when I stop by. They normally have 3-4 new brews on each Saturday and draw a crowd early but getting there later normally there is still plenty of beer. This is a must for anyone hitting craft beer stops in the Lancaster/Harrisburg area

Stumbled upon on trip to Asheville for Run The Jewels show a week 1/2 ago. Thrilled to find the last bottle of BBA Sexual Chocolate on the shelf, & on tap so I could sip while perusing. Believe they had 4-6 taps & given the size of the shop a pretty great selection of Carolina brews and a seemingly thoughtfully curated selection of others. The guys working were great and not only would eagerly swing in next time I'm in town/passing through but would be happy to call this my local shop. Cheers!

I do not want to come across as to too technical but, I found this beer to be yummy. You know it is high quality when three of 12 bottles are served with relatives and we fill the void with any other lite beer.
Anyone aware if this beer is available with an IV?

A little messy (and maybe a little dirty) inside. Beer is basically in a large diagonal isle in the middle of the store with a rounded shelf of single bottles on one end. A special release section is featured behind the rounded shelf but this one is faced parallel with the front door. Isles are very narrow and difficult to navigate (especially with a cart). Overall, beer selections are a little hard to find and not necessarily in a good way. Requires some tiresome searching. Organization could be better. On a brighter note, lots of quality selections including 3 floyds, jester king, crooked stave and grimm, all of which I have not seen in Southern Illinois. Great selection also. A couple employees offered to help me while browsing but I declined as I was not looking for anything in particular. The man who checked me out asked for my name, gave me 10% off and said the next time I come I would get 10% off on craft beer. Prices are slightly high but the 10% off makes them acceptable. Overall, I picked up some good stuff. Descent experience and will go back if I'm in the area.

There's no decent craft beer here. Don't waste your time. Whoever says this place is a good one to get quality beer is either delusional or a friend /relative of the owner.

This is the place to go for a quality beer in Newport. Great selection and staff! Small place but friendly. Forget Noreys up the street which doesn't even come close.

They had 7 house beers on tap and they were all pretty decent. Nothing out of this world but, they were all solid brews. Good vibe and nice seating. Not too bad of a brewery with room for improvement.

A very nice brewery with a nice vibe and great food! The selection was good however, they only had 3 house beers on tap as well as 16 house beers. A nice selection of local and non local craft beers I hope in the near future they have more house beers on tap. Their burgers and sandwiches were absolutely delicious. All the beer was good with friendly bartenders and waitresses. A good seating selection upstairs, downstairs, and outside. I will definitely be going back soon!

Simple place with a simple layout, and an influx of good craft beers. Small and tidy, basic corner dive bar spread, walls minimally decorated with random beer and music posters. Average size bar, some table space, lots of leg room. Service and prices were on par. Beer selection is typically very good, common micros, locals, with a rarity making an appearance here and there. I won't give a food rating, as I've never been inspired to sample any. It's basically a snack menu, with a selection of meats, cheeses, pickles, and then an offering of $5 burgers. It's a cool little hangout, and worth checking out, just not my favorite place in the SPhilly/Passyunk area.

Some pretty tasty beers in a very cool industrial setting. A short walk to Marble when we were done, a quick Lyft from La Cumbre to get us there. Everyone was very friendly. We loved the courtyard.

A great spot near my office. Great selection of locals and others. As always watch the dates on IPAs but this is not a shot at the place. They seem to do better than most. Staff is always pleasant, and there are a few folks who know their beer. Highly recommend.

If you are at Disney and need a getaway catch a $5 uber and hit this spot. Great bartenders, solid beers, and and a super laid back atmosphere. My only complaint is that it’s not very big and has limited seating. But this is a beer nerd kind of spot.

Plus CROWLER. Do yourself a favor

And nitro cold brew that I took home in a crowler.

You’ll be happy you came here

We visited this place twice during a short 4 day trip to Hot Springs about a year ago. I really liked the place not a wide beer selection, but interesting place in the middle of the bathhouse row. I got a beer flight and some were good but the beer wasn't as memorable as the springs.

I live in the area and been there several times to browse the beer selection. Of course this isn't big city shopping but they do carry a good selection for the area. I believe they take suggestions/orders from customers but I've always found something new to try.

vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4 | selection: 4

The Dane says Coffee Beer Coffee Beer Coffee Beer outside, and that pretty much sums up the place.

As a beer joint, there are about 25 or 30 taps, a few of which are for ciders. The beers on my visit were almost all local, with several from the Ballard aces Reubens, Stoup, and Lucky Envelope. The range and quality are first rate.

The vibe is Danish modern coffee house. Impeccable design. Lots of light. Lots of natural wood. Lots of space. If you like a quiet uncrowded space to drink beer, this might be the best spot in Seattle.

There is a limited food menu, but I didn't try it. There are the usual coffee options. Service is fine. Prices are good, and a happy hour makes them better. They do offer half pours.

What in the world? I thought this was going to be a tiny, shabby little hole in a wall. As I'm walking down the street, what do I see but a massive wall with clean, artistic signage on an aesthetically pleasing pale black background. It's not quite as big on the inside as it looks from the outside, but this is just the customer area and it is quite sizeable, with a huge, square-U bar and plenty of satellite seats surrounding.

The taplist is shockingly sparse, but has almost as many guest listings as HotD. They had a couple of "from the Wood" and "from the Stone" drafts, including a special treatment with peach, which was nice to try since this is how I heard of them and I didn't really know what else to think. Their other beers are also decidedly old world and take you back to a grittier time, in spite of being poured into the cutest little glasses while sitting at a very modern bar with a far off view of a kitchen preparing a massive wedge of Parmesan for future use.

Speaking of which, the food here is also ultra modern and very nice, again surprising me, especially since the physical menu itself looks like a ratty old Applebee's menu from the 90s. This place is all kinds of confusing, but lots of fun. You know what they say about Portland. The only problem is there really isn't that much to offer for people that don't appreciate a very specific style of beer. I can't believe they can maintain such a massive complex in such a location...maybe it's the under the bridge and near the train tracks deal.

Holy Craft Beer Bar

in Düsseldorf, Germany

3.75/5  rDev 0% | Score: 3.75
vibe: 3.75 | quality: 3.75 | service: 4.5 | selection: 3

This is Düsseldorf's first craft beer bar, which only just opened in May 2017 and is located in the Altstadt district of Düsseldorf not too far from Brauerei Füchschen. In the summertime it has a nice little outdoor seating area right in front of the entrance and the place itself is medium sized and has a comfy modern vibe with some rustic touches.

There are 12 beers on tap, all of which rotate, and additionally there is a rather large selection of bottled beers (almost 100). While the people I was with seemed rather impressed by the selection of bottled beers, we all seemed to agree that the tap selection was a little disappointing. Lots of German (I)PAs and Wheat Beers, only one or two stouts and nothing inbetween, really, except one Red Ale, if memory serves me. Just nothing all that interesting or truly great, to be honest. I've only been there twice though, so maybe I just got unlucky both times. Personally I wasn't that impressed by the bottle selection either because while it's large, there wasn't really anything rare or exclusive there. I could buy any of those bottles at a craft beer shop for half the price and if I go to a bar I'm mostly interested in the beers on tap, to be honest.

Prices are pretty steep, but this seems to be the current standard for craft beer in Germany. Beers on tap are between 3.50 and 7.50€ and for bottles it was between 5 and 8€, I think. I didn't pay that close attention to the bottle prices, to be honest. Crowd seemed pretty mixed the first time I was there and the service was friendly and helpful. It's a nice enough place, really. The outside area is rather pleasant and the interior has a certain atmosphere to it. And while the tap selection could be improved, they still have some perfectly fine beers down there.

Open daily. Bar takes up around half of the space. On tap beers numbered 14 with most of them regional. The food was outstanding with stuffies, crunchy fish n chips and a monsta lobsta roll sharing the spotlight. Live-Give-Relax is their motto. Plymouth Rock, Plymouth Harbor are very nearby with Craft Beer Cellar right next door. Could be a 4 in 1 visit. We will visit again.

I was here right around 5 so the place is probably a lot more hopping later in the evening. You're vibe value may vary.

The place is very nice inside and the brewing area is easy to see. There are lots of tables inside and there is a huge sitting area out back with a nice view of the river. I liked the beers I tried and they were very well made. They did appear a bit cloudy, but I like that, some people may not. It really doesn't affect the flavor at all. Service was good and prompt. An nice place off the beaten path if you happen to make it to Waynesville.

I'm starting to question my time on this site based on the reviews I seem to be at odds with much of the time. C'est What is NOT a brewpub for starters, it is a great pub that only serves Canadian micro brews. Very comfortable, great staff, beer is always fresh, well served, and with a wide selection. I suppose BA geeks might miss the lack of imperial stouts and IIIPAs, but who cares, the quality here is excellent. Definitely my favorite in Toronto, don't miss it.

Built to invoke the feel of a reclaimed barn, the new taproom is open and airy with communal tables, a proper bar, a small stage for live music and a biergarten complete with a food cart on the weekends. Having already tried everything they bottle, I was pleased to find that there were 5 tap-only beers that'd I'd never seen before. All of them were worth trying. Service was fine.

Now that they are located right on the main drag in Bailey's Harbor on HWY 57, this is a must-stop if you are a fan of what they bottle. A summer weekend in particular would be perfect, with the biergarten and a live band. Conveniently located just a block or two down the road is the beautiful Ridges Sanctuary, if a pre-beer walk in the woods tickles your fancy.
