An insane selection of rare and elite quality beers accompanied by a solid menu and rad "bartifacts" (incuding a crest detailing forbidden activities such as Feats of Strength), make this a must stop on any beer geek's hit list. A number of incidents with pretentious and flippant servers are the only knock I have against an otherwise outstanding establishment.

With an outstanding number of taps and an eclectic mix of styles, it's safe to say that Reuben's has something to offer for everyone. Whether it be to cheer on the Sounders, Mariner's, and Hawks, or to play a few games of cornhole in the back, the vibe is welcoming and laid back. Kid and dog friendly with a rotating food truck schedule and a number of order-in options.

meat market for 1st timers to get the night going, great spot 90% of the time typical ftw area wants to be Dallas crowd but will never catch up but is a no BS spot for good cold pint beers that can be endless if you can hang. Def worth checking out if you've never been FOR the beers. Been there many times over the long period of years still in my top 10 ftw places for beers

typical is what it is for the area, self entitled's, packed for douches & 2$ hook ups depending on ETA ... Smart folk get this, but is a good spot when crowds are low and always cold beers by the pint at the bar not the pool tables outside etc Not the place to go to on fri/sat night unless its for hookin up as nothing is wrong at all with that either, then going elsewhere for the worthy of your time that same night ;) Keep in mind Addison place patrol the exit areas heavily so have a good DD for sloshy times if thats your menu

Stepped off of the street into a German themed restaurant. Expected good selection of Hofbräuhaus beers. Surprisingly, but not unpleasantly, there was Maibock on tap in July! Yum! Food, German themed, was well made, presented and tasty. Nice!

a fun place to visit when you are in austin for sure, we had a great time here. they have an awesome outside area between when you park and where you enter the building, a cool space with patio furniture, picnic tables, shade trees, and a mellow vibe. inside it has a noisy beer hall vibe, with picnic tables as far as the eye can see and a long bar straight back. attention seems to be sort of directed to a rather large stage area, looks like they have some pretty serious shows in here, audio and lighting equipment all over the place, high energy in here. lots of workers though, several folks behind the bar handle the crowd well, folks line up at an ordering window but nobody waited long and our bar service never suffered, quite professional. they had a cool list of beers, a fair few of them, nothing overly ambitious on paper, but i didnt miss that. they had three or four pale lagers, you know, a czech style pils, a helles, and american lager, it seems like a lot, but it works in the texas heat, and big pours of pale lager is awesome, no complaints from me! i liked all of them pretty well, and enjoyed an apple sour as well. we had a killer salad with all kinds of interesting things on it, i dont usually think of food as refreshing, but this salad was at least as refreshing as the lagers i was crushing in here. a bit busy for intimacy here, a bit loud for serious conversation inside, and too hot to chill outside this time of year, but a brewery doing some nice beers and well worth checking out! id love to see some music here next time!

Fantastic owners, in a sweet little spot, with great beer. Not a single one was bad. Terrific PICO brewery worth checking out. Mango Mama was FANTASTIC...they even had a pepper saison that I was skeptical about, but was GOOOOD.

A very nice, modern small-town brewery taproom, and there’s nothing wrong with that! Friendly and dedicated staff and owners. Happy crowd of regulars and out of towners. Twelve house taps when I visited. The ones I tried were good to very good.

Not a great experience. Bud Lite crowd at the bar that the bartender was entertaining. I ordered a Single Cut kolsch with my food at table behind bar. The food I ordered came out before my beer. Shrimp risotto was great but crowd and lack of service limited me to a single beer. 8 beers on tap, diverse selection. I would suggest sitting in dining room for dinner if you are planning a visit.

Stopped here in the middle of a summer thunderstorm around 130PM. Entered through the back end of the brewery where the entire wall opens up, creating a cool vibe in the midst of torrential downpour. Vibe at the time was subdued as there were only a handful of others in the tasting room space. Great view of the brewing operation on the right side with a large tasting space to the left in front of the bar.
Presentation of the space was expected for the vibe I think they are capturing - recaptured industrial space with a tasting room/bar/brewery multi-use feel.
Quality of the brews was above average with the Czech Pils, Machine, highlighting the tasting flight. Amongst the rest, Terrarium was notable.
Service was good for the minimal interaction we needed after ordering a full flight of brews.
Selection of brews seemed to be bunched in two categories - pils/lager and ipa renditions with their Trashmaster stout rounding it out. I would have liked to try the canned brown ale available for drinking in the tasting space but ran out of time.
Overall - a great brewery/tasting room space available that I'm sure sees much more traffic in better conditions and at traditionally busier times (not on a Tuesday afternoon).

This place definitely has the feel that it was a reclaimed industrial building, converted into a brewery and taproom. The tasting area is large enough to handle large parties, but has enough seating for your after work happy hours. Another big plus is these guys are dog friendly. It's always nice to have our four legged friends jump into the mix.

Been open for a few months and finally made it in. Standard industrial vibe for sure. It was a bit noisey but being glass, wood and steel that doesn't help. Small Tuesday crowd. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. They are not here to blow your mind-at least with the 12 beers or so on tap. Just sold, fairly true to style. i had a great pils, excellent maibock, damn good stout, great black IPA and a very good triple. Definitely ran the gamut of styles and something for everyone.Service was pretty good. Slow at first but became attentive overall. Sandwiches and "skillets" make up the majority of the menu-I had a fried green tomato BLT, my buddy had baked loaded mac n cheese. $3 for a UK half pint, $6 for a full shaker pint is damn good for inner city prices. $11 for crowlers.
Again I was very pleasantly surprised. The fact they they are not trying too hard really appeals to me. Looking forward to a lazy day or evening return for sure.

Brewpub with a nice food selection and good weekly specials. Teays River opened in early 2018 and, at the moment, I'd say their food is as good or better than their beer. That said, the beer is already on par with Lafayette Brewing Company and People's, the established local breweries. They have distinct seating areas dividing the bar and patio areas from the more traditional restaurant seating. Beer offerings were originally a mix of Teays River and other central Indiana brewers, but they appear to be serving their own brews on every line now that they've gotten on their feet. Styles are primarily classic British and Euro-influenced, with the addition of some IPAs with new-world hop varietals. Definitely making a promising start in their first six months.

Stopped while going between Erie and Sharon Pennsylvania while visiting relatives.
Had the red ale and the British Strong Ale. The red ale was good and the British strong ale was great. Decent service given that there was only one person at the bar. No food. Got some fresh Hazy Vibe to go. Had this with pizza later - very good!
Fun place to visit if in the area.

This is in a small retail strip with some parking and apparently neighbors that will tow your car if you park in the wrong place. Seven of their beers inn tap with some guest ciders and wine. Decent beers and brew on premises equipment if you want to brew your own. Neat little place.

This is a full service liquor store,and is the only game in town on tredy Canal Park. This store sevices all the tourists and hotels. The store itself is in need of a facelift, its sstuck in the 80's. The selection is decent with a nice selection of craft brew. You will find something to drink. Its within walking distance to all the hotels, another plus. If they could redo the inside and expand this place could become very good. As is its a place for your craft fix on Canal Park.

Oft overlooked this turn of the century converted rail stop station is both a cider house as well as a tap house. Spectacular views of Lake Superior with a nice outdoor deck and fireplace in trendy Canal Park. Good bar food and specialty plates, kid friendly. They have live music on the weekend. Craft beer is limited to only Fitgers brews which to me is a drawback , to only serve that. Overall a great place to stop cause of the history of the Bldg, and the view.

This is in a strip mall with plenty of parking. Smallish bar with tables and a patio for the better weather. Ten of their own beers on tap, along with a full bar and some wine. Nice fancy pub grub inspired menu. For eating at Dayton area brewpubs this is among the best for food. Beers are always solid. Worth the stop.

This is in a store front in an upscale strip mall. Plenty of parking. This is a taproom with a visible brewing area, bar and several tables. No food but plenty of nearby places that deliver or you can carry in. They had eleven of their beers on tap with a few guest ciders and other beers on tap. Full bar and some wine. Decent enough tap room.

I moved away from Tuscaloosa a couple years ago and this is one of the main things I miss. Druid City is a great brewery with a VERY local feel. These guys started this place from the ground up and have done wonders with what they have. They certainly deserve all the beer community love! If they had a flaw it would be their location. Not far from other places, but 15th street isn't the ideal location for a brewery IMO. Good food across the parking lot though! Bo Hicks (one of the owners) is awesome! You'll see him there. I MISS IT!
