B & L Bar

vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.75 | selection: 4.25

Founded in 1897, it still has the original tin ceiling and bar back. Open with lots of seating and a huge bar.
There are a dozen taps dedicated to Schell's, including a couple of Noble Star selections and the latest Cave Aged beer.
The service was fast and friendly and included a nice chat with one of the owners.
Great place.
We did not have any food.

This place is great. 16 taps of all French beer. The woman working the bar was generous with samples and suggestions. Cool music. A second bar in the basement. A must if searching for French craft beer.

Nice draft list of Euro stuff. I had a red grape berliner by La P'tite Maiz and a blueberry black IPA by Northern Monk. Full and half pours available. Prices seemed fair. The place is narrow but there is room in the back if the bar looks full. Would go back if in Paris for sure.

Went here one night during my stay in Lyon. It is a club so you have to pay one euro for a membership to get in. Its certainly worth it though. One of the benefits of it being a club is they can be open super late(6AM I believe). They have about 5 draft lines. I had an excellent hazy IPA on draft from the French brewer Brasserie Haarddrëch.

The bottle selection is where this place excels. I initially asked the owner Stéphane for recommendations for good French stouts and he helped us out. We ended up spending about 5 hours there and had a blast drinking amazing French, Italian, and Belgian beer from the cellar and talking to the owner and members about beer, France, traveling etc. It was a great experience. Highly recommended.

Love a place that is laid back and relaxing. This is it. Nice decor and scenery outside. For me it's worth the 100 mile trip. After all, it is all about the beer.

4.45/5  rDev +3% | Score: 4.32
vibe: 4.75 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4.75 | food: 4.5

Vibe: It's always a chill atmosphere and a very casual environment. Great place to go to hang out, drink great beer, and have excellent pizza.

Quality: Quality is up to par with the food and beer they serve. Nothing over the top

Service: There's no table service but the bar staff is always friendly and down to help you with what you need.

Selection: They have a good spread to choose from whether you are looking for beer (or something a little stronger)

Food: The pizza is awesome! I especially love that they have vegan options to choose from so anyone can grab a slice or a pie and enjoy.

Went here twice during my stay in Leon. Very nice draft and bottle selection. Mainly Euro stuff, most of which you won't find in the US. I had a couple beers from White Hog from Ireland, for example. Most stuff on draft is available in full and half pours.

This place is very big with a couple different rooms in the back. They had rugby on the TV one day. For Cantillon they had bottles of guezue, kriek and saint lam when I was there. Definitely recommend this spot.

Stiggs Brewing Company

vibe: 4.25 | quality: 3 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4

Visited here over the weekend. Only brewery in Boyne City, which is where we were staying, so I definitely wanted to check it out. They had a wide selection of beers across different styles, which included beers they brewed as well as guest taps. I had a few different beers by them: Horton Bay Hef (Hefeweizen), Naughty Baker (APA), and Chocolate Covered Boyne (Stout w/chocolate). None of them really stood out, with the Hef probably being my favorite.

The best part to me (and my kids) was probably the free popcorn they offer. We took a few rounds of that. The food was solid bar type food, and the kids menu was decent. I believe they gave crayons to the kids to color with, and each of the tables had a "Where's Waldo" picture amongst hundreds of bottle caps to find - my kids loved looking for it on our table, as well as other empty tables.

I would visit again if staying in BC again, but wouldn't make it a point to go visit if I weren't in the area for a few days.

Went here after Boston Childrens Museum with family and before I went to Trillium. The place is pretty conveniently located near Congress Street in the Seaport District with a few parking garages nearby. Big outdoor patio with fireplaces were available, but inside you get a somewhat fancy, old mill building look. Huge bar area with a ton on tap it looked like and several tables with only a few booths.

The online menu described their lunch hours as running until 5PM, but we were told they had a smaller mid day menu which was active at the moment. This disapointed us but our server was nice and apologetic. We decided to stay and just get pizzas which were really, really good. I was a little taken aback however by the beer menu. I clearly saw a ton on tap at the bar but the waiter gave me this menu that only had a few things on tap. It was my own fault for not inquiring, but I was disappointed the waiter did not try to highlight how much they seemed to have on tap. I decided to have the Dogfish Head Flesh and Blood which I never had before and then Lord Hobo Boomsauce which is one of my go-tos.

Overall, its better to go to this place when advertised hours are better shown. I could definitely see this as a fun place to go after work. Wait staff was good and ambiance was neat. Again, I just wish communication was clearer on menu hours and beer on tap.

They sell only beers made in the Lyon area. You won't find anything from Belgium or even other parts of France. The guy working in there(he was not the owner) was helpful and seemed to know the local beer scene well. The shop is small but is nice and on a charming side street. If you want beer local to this area this is a great place.

4.29/5  rDev 0% | Score: 4.29
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.25

Probably the best beer place in Växjö, a bit by default.

Vibe is friendly and laid back. Place is pretty small but cosy. Service is Scandinavian, polite but not chatty.

Beer selection is excellent, with 16 taps covering most styles. Bottle and can selection is fairly unusal for Sweden, with the likes of Melvin and Novo Brazil available. Easy to find something you want, but hard to choose.

Food menu is small, but the quality is high. They do various smoked meats with a few sides. Had salsiccia with mac and cheese, and it was very good.

Overall, a really nice place for both beer and food. Not a huge place, so a reservation is probably a good idea for the weekend.

We had the chance to visit in February of 2018 on a trip to San Diego. The experience was entirely worth it. It's a sprawling complex in the Liberty Station area with indoor/outdoor bar and seating. Pretty crowded when we got there but manageable. The beer selection is stellar (30-40 taps plus more bottled), and a mix of Stone, Stone's 'Liberty Station' exclusives, and a few local micros and like a kid in a candy store I didn't do more than a 5 ounce pour of any of the offerings. The food menu is small but the food's of great quality... tasty and interesting. The vibe is busy... and a lot to take in, and I'm sure there's a depth to the place that you can't get with a single visit. Service was decent... beer was great... food was tasty. A beer Mecca for a reason. Will go back again at the earliest opportunity.

Visited the brewpub in September of 2017. Small place outside of Burlington. They had 1 beer on-tap (bring a growler, or 'rent' one... which you can return for a deposit... or just keep to take home) and 3 other brews available canned. Very cool staff.... and a nice gift shop. The best part is... it's located next to an amazing pizzeria (opens right into it) where you can grab your beer and go order some amazing pies. Really cool vibe... great food... outstanding beer.. all around A++ experience. Next time I'm in Vermont I'll definitely be going back.

Lat weekend they had: Heddy Topper, Focal Banger, and Sip o Sunshine. I never got around to beer on tap that I wanted to try. Pizza not greasy, which I like, especially when having a few beers. The only negative is that parking is a bit limited. They also have a few large televisions around the place.

Upscale barber shop (2 seats) up front. and an equally boutiquey smaller bar in the rear....interesting and different kinda place....about a dozen quality taps a pouring, but part of the interest here is the collection of IPAs and DIPAs in cans available from the fridge behind the bar, think Bunker Brwing, Nightshift, Mikkeller. Foreign Objects, Evil Twin, Industrial Arts, Alchemist, Burial, Barrier, Brewmaster Jack. KCBC, Decadent ..... they do some small plates of food, cheese and meat kinda things, but we are talking snacks available here, not really meals.....go for a beer or two, but grab your meal somewhere else....worth a visit for an upscale beer or two....If you want a haircut, you better call a few days ahead.....

Upscale Market in The Desert,it is in Rancho Mirage but close to Palm Springs or Palm Desert. Nice serviceable craft beer selection with a shelf of Bombers and aisle of chilled sixers. Nothing outstanding here... you will find a sixer however for the hotel. They do have taps in store to drink i counted 8. Grab a pint while there. Serviceable but not a destination TW 4 miles away has a better selection.

Central Alberta’s newest brewery looks to be another winner. The taproom is well done - high ceilings, lots of natural wood, with a peeky boo into the nuts and bolts of the operation. The opening lineup includes four solid core beers, along with two seasonals. All are tasty and show great promise! Friendly service and a great small town vibe that defines Sylvan Lake. I do fear that this place will be overrun in the summer, but let’s make hay while the snow flies!

Probably the best brew space/facility in the Tampa Bay area, spacious, with high ceilings and a mezzanine in what was originally the Hellman's mayonnaise factory in the industrial district adjacent to Ybor City. Coppertail recently added a restaurant partner on site with interesting, creative bar eats that are very good. Can't say enough about this place, the vibe is off the charts.

I liked the feel and vibe of the Knickerbocker. Reminded me of an old tavern with multiple rooms and a small bar area. Very nice selection of beers on tap (approx 25) broken out by crisp, roasty, tart/funky, cask, malty, hoppy, and fruit/spice. There were numerous Fatheads on when I visited (Hop Juju, Schwarzbier, etc.) and I was told there was a tap takeover the night before. Bottle list was very, very large and was well-documented and cross-referenced. Good selection of locals (Levity, Transmitter, Helltown, Old Forge, etc.)

Stopped at Pour on Center for the first time and I was very impressed. Not a huge selection of beer on tap but what was available was very good (GI Madame Rose, Fatheads Hop Juju, Bells Expedition Stout, etc.). Eric behind the bar is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to chat about beers and definitely knows the trade. Good vibe and lively groups of people. I stopped both Friday and Saturday night and you could find a place to sit both nights but it was pretty hoping. Food was well-made and is not your typical bar food (roasted brussel sprouts, buttermilk deep fried chicken sandwich). I'll be back!!

This place, yeah, I say - 'do-able.' To me, it's similar to Whole Foods Market (Portland, ME). Yup, kinda hippy/crunchy granola like the other store I just rated, but hey, I might not hang out with that type of crowd, but at least they're willing to sell to a redneck/swamp yankee like me. We're all looking for beer, right? And if my dollar is in their hand, what are they complaining about.

Not exactly one of my main stops when I lived in the Portland area, but I'd come in every now and again to check out the beer vibe and seeing Maine Beer Company, Rising Tide, Baxter, Peak Organic, Bar Harbor, Long Trail, Otter Creek, Smuttynose and Cambridge. I wouldn't go out of my way to make it a priority to check this place out, but hey, give it a shot if you're looking for something specifically from Maine and you can't find it at the Bier Cellar.

There's a couple different establishments under the Sebago name, but this one is perhaps one of my favorites. What always amazed me about this place is no matter whenever anyone ever goes in here, they practically always keep up with the peak times for service. My hat goes off to these guys for being able to do just that. Oh, and my go-to beer from these guys has always been Slick Nick and here when they put it on cask, yeah, those were always absolutely stellar Winter nights. Food has always been stellar!
