Found myself in Escanaba for a spell and stopped by on a chilly January Saturday. The taproom is attached to the brewery, nestled in the woods on the edge of town, just a hair past the airport. If not for the carved wooden logo by the side of the road, you may miss it.
Inside was warm and cozy, despite the high ceilings. Blonde wood walls and bar, with counter seating along two walls. Four four-tops complete the seating, with total room for about thirty souls to love comfortably, forty if everyone's familiar.
Ten brews on tap: the five regulars and five rotating taps. Service was friendly and fast, and I managed to work my way through the rotating taps over a few hours. Everything, from the pilsner to the Belgian ale, was good to great. No food there beyond snacks, but bringing or ordering in your own is fine.

A true German style restaurant/bar in the appropriately named German Village area of my hometown, Columbus Ohio. Food is top notch with a good selection of German beers. You have to try one of the enormous cream puffs, absolutely freaking fantastic!

Liberty beers on tap, not a great selection. I consider this a restaurant not necessarily a beer destination. For this, the relative lack of selection is secondary to a very good restaurant that I have enjoyed each visit.

This place has been here since I was kid decades ago. Went through while we were back home during Thansgiving, and was pleasantly surprised by the reasonably good selection of craft/micro brews available. Staff not overly well versed in the craft beer scene, but did not have the beer snob attitude you get at some other places.

A Japanese eatery with traditional and exquisite sushi. Part of The Kingfield Hood in Mpls. It has a 8 seat bar area with a dozen or so table's with ,outdoor seating in the summer. The Sushi is superb here as are the creative side plate's. They have about 12 taps 8 of them rotate mostly with local nicely selected taps they have 4 taps for Japanese brew. A chill place to go with 2 HH 4-6 and 10-12. If you like sushi and a pint you will like Kyatchi.

Stopped by to try a 'flight' which consists of two beers currently, both were fine for the styles. The venue is quite small, but there's mixed drinks and a small lunch-type menu. Bartender was friendly; the uniform seemed out of place for a craft brewery, but that's their thing.

Large and bustling WFM in in one of Brooklyn's cultural activity nerve center neighborhoods.
You know the deal...large and loaded with everything food, meets, veggies, cheese, fish, hot and cold food bars...everything for the kitchen, great quality and priced to reflect it....you get what you pay for this WF is a great example of it...to fine the beer you must travel down the escalator and head to the rear of the lower floor. One large or two large and well stocked shelving areas, stacks of cases all over the place and then as you keep going back to the rear a huge cooler unit LOADED with more and more of the good stuff.
Expect to find a full representation of the usual widely distributed local, regional and internationals...Also they stock a bunch of the fine local Brooklyn micro options, like Transmitter, KCBC, Grimm and the like...great spot to stock up on all the food ya need to eat and al the beer ya want to drink and enjoy. Well worth a visit.

Hole in the wall spot on the upper upper east side of NYC...salads, sandwedges, cheese plates and boutique beer..OK, that works for me..expect a small but nicely put together list of stuff from places like KCBC, Finback, Transmitter, Burlington Beer Co...drafts, cans and a few bottles. Funky, quirky, unique kinda decor and general vibe. A few long tables and very small bar up front...narrow mid section, leads to more communal longer tables and I think a few booths... Well worth a visit if you are in the area or heading north as I was...the other reviews talk about the place getting crowded (it wouldn't take many people to do), but it was quiet and cozy upon my Monday night visit...Kale salad was darn tasty

Shotgun style corner bar with a gameroom basement.
Actual bar seats a dozen or so with high and low top tables seating about 60 total. TV's are unobtrusive and the music is varied and still allows for easy conversation.
Service was pleasant, understanding, and aware.
20 or so tap handles but a few were kicked and not replaced. Server stated they had been busy. I hope their distributer gets there with more for Saturday and Sunday, or at least I hope it wasn't a choice not to replace them. I'll leave open the possibility they had a surprise tap takeover planned for the next day and had been intentionally letting them kick.
What the list did show was a pretty broad range of styles that leaned local yet still reached across the country.
Food was good, but nothing you wouldn't see everywhere else.

I love this place. I went there on a Saison beer trail weekend with my son. It was a highlight of my life. Although a while back so I cannot remember the beers by name, I had a flight of five and we were then treated to a private stock sixth, and every single offering was interesting, complex, unique, and worthwhile. The staff was wonderful, and the moment they latched on to the idea that this wasn't my first rodeo, they were also really personable. I cannot wait to go back!
