We stopped by here for dinner after looking at the BA review and the Yelp reviews.

You enter through kind of a narrow barroom and then head to your left to the two large expansive dining rooms. They have done a nice job with this older building and I like that they kept many of the period details.

We thought the food was good. My table had some shared appetizers and then entrees. The steak and the chicken dishes were well received. I thought their sides were also tasty.

Beer selection is decent. Some of the expected macros plus nice local craft options. They also have a decent wine list.

Service – This is where they fell down. For the first ½ of our meal our service was very good and attentive. After our entrees came, we did not see our server again until we asked for our bill. We would have had more beers but were never given the chance to reorder. At one point we thought that maybe her shift was over and that we had been overlooked by the new staff. We waited at least 25 minutes without seeing our waitress which is odd. Note that our table was extremely easy with no special requests or high maintenance expectations. Getting our water refilled would have been nice and I sure would have liked another beer or two.

I would give them another chance as the food and setting were nice.

I was glad I could stop by this new to me brewery while visiting the Wausau area.

Lots of parking in front near the grain silo. As you walk in the bar is straight ahead and the swag shop is off to your right. I thought this was a comfortable taproom with some nice seating areas, natural light, high ceilings, etc. They have a decent sized crowd on a Thursday afternoon and there were several folks that were also touring/sampling the various breweries in the area like we were.

Service from the two bartenders was friendly and they were free with samples. They also were super helpful with customers that were new to their German style beers or new to craft beer in general.

I did not see or ask about food.

I liked their beers. My Oktoberfest was a nice mineral malt driven beer. The other lagers I had were very good. Next time I will try their Schwartz beer and their weizens. I think there were 8 or beer choices.

It was an enjoyable stop in a town that has some decent beer options.

Very cool open floor plan market place, set up like a huge starbuck, only with beer. Bar area takes up 20% of the front. Bar seats a out 12, with about a dozen table opposite it, and it's open to the center countyard/walkway. 12 beers on tap... excellent. What a place to hang out.... sure beats the library.

Awesome space. Awesome beer. Awesome people. I hope I can go back next time I am in Milwaukee. Reminds me a lot of my hometown favorite, Masthead. Probably some hometown bias in my review but I found Eagle Park to be just slightly less amazing than Masthead. Even so I would be more than happy to drink their beer on the regular if I lived there.

Small spot in the heart of the Crossroads neighborhood in Kansas City. Interior is high ceiling, exposed brick, and hardwood floors with natural wood tables. Most of all the seating is setup for 4 person groups. Bar is short and 'L' shaped with a dozen seats. The space opens up via a garage door in the front that connects with a little porch. Porch area is nice, is its a small wooden deck built off the front of the space and onto the sidewalk (but not enough to impede foot traffic). The porch/deck area really helps the brewery feel a little bit bigger than it is, otherwise it can feel a little short with the garage door closed. Both bartenders were friendly and attentive to customer service. Beer selection focused on IPAs, although there was a healthy array of other styles. Some beers were even brewed to raise profits for local nonprofits - a pretty neat concept. Flights are easily available as are full pours. Bar snacks such as pretzels and chips are on hand, as well as, a board of local cheeses. Overall, a pretty nice, laid back brewery with an all animal theme.

In a bleak industrial area off of Eubank Rd near Kirtland AFB. Interior is more welcoming with lots of distressed wood and bomb-related decor in an open, industrial-looking taproom. Basic tables and bar are comfortable enough with a popcorn maker and a few old-school video games. There was a short food menu, but I did not try any. The vibe was low-key and friendly. When I visited there were only a few groups of customers, including some families with young kids, a clump of military guys and a few groups of middle-aged friends.

Great, friendly service from the bartender. Cheap prices, military discounts, and even free drafts for military that had been donated by customers. Sixteen taps of their own beer, with all the standard, basic styles along with a few unusual ones like an IPL and an "American Special Bitter". The beers I had (from a massive taster flight of 6 pours) were well-executed and tasty.

This is a great, relaxing place to get good beer. Highly recommended if you are at or near the Air Force Base.

The placing is perfect, and it's a wonderful pre/post game venue for a few drinks. If you're in town do, go and enjoy it! The beer is also decent. Never had a bad time there.

One of a number of pubs in and around Brisbane cbd that I regularly drink at and occasionally eat at. A firm favourite. A beautiful old building with an interesting story, a big public bar (Fihelly's) with a good UBET (TAB) annex, food is acceptable in quality and price for a pub, and a reasonable range of beers. They usually have Guinness in cans or sometimes on tap, a good range of Coopers, including Extra Stout, and a decent mix of craft/traditional choices. Unpretentious clientele generally. I avoid the Platform Bar next door, full of expensive, bad craft beer and wankers.

I have been meeting mates at the Creek for 30 years. I am very fond of it, even though many of the criticisms about food pricing, service, clientele, beer selection etc are accurate. I usually drink in the Public Bar, which has a number of advantages over any of the other areas - very few yuppies, a UBET (TAB) service and Tooheys Old in bottles. It has an "old Brisbane" feel to it, and can't say that about many other pubs. I also stray into the Private Bar for XXXX from a wooden keg, which is worth trying, even though I wouldn't rate it higher than XXXX Bitter in any other format.

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

Newer Woodman's which opened about a month back.

The good:
Large liquor department with tons of coolers used for beer. I mean there might be more beer coolers in this store than 3-4 suburban Binny's stores combined. There are stacks of beer on the floors as well. Layout is similar to the Kenosha Woodman's I've been to which is my point of reference.
Mix six section (in a cooler, of course)
Typical with Woodman's, the prices here on beer are good - either matching what you'd find at a Binny's or beating it by a buck or two.

The bad:
Couldn't find any Pipeworks or other popular self-distributed breweries. Hopefully that will change over time.

The potentially bad:
Having such massive amounts of beer in stock I'm worried that stock turnover will be a challenge here. It's a newer store so hopefully traffic increases over time and the store turns over stock so they continually get fresh beer in.
Just like other Woodman's, it's cash or debit only. Not an issue for me but just stating a potential issue. Or at least be aware of their policy (fyi it's so they can charge lower prices)

Thirsty Bear was only a block away for the Moscone Convention Center; what a find! The beer offerings included 9 house beers and two cask conditioned ales. I ordered the lunch special (a delicious take on chicken salad) and a flight, which consisted of all 9 non-cask conditioned house beers. Note specializes largely in Spanish cuisine, tapas and such.

Pretty empty when I got there, they didn't seem to be drawing the lunch crowd from Moscone. A modern teak and polished steel kind of look. Bar stretches along much of the left hand wall with tons of seating along the right. Chatted with a couple of Canadians about international politics.

The service was attentive but was not terribly knowledgable about the beer (of course, often the bar staff are the only ones in the know). Great range: the offerings ranged from a spicy saison through to a barrel aged stout and from good to excellent. The brown ale I tried was cask conditioned and really interesting.

Would have eaten at Thirsty Bear more had I known it was so close.
