Burial Beer Co.

in Asheville, North Carolina

4.21/5  rDev -1.6% | Avg: 4.28
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 3.75

Visited Burial on the suggestion of a friend and was not disappointed. Nothing fancy here, just a rustic-looking place with a bar, a few tables, efficient and friendly staff, and some solid beers. I will be making Burial a regular stop on my trips to Asheville.

Large, open dining area and tap room, lots of energy but not overly loud. Good service, and very good beer. Fits in beautifully with the surrounding neighborhood. Beer is extremely good and getting better, and the food options are solid. One of the best breweries to visit in western new york.

I go to the desert a couple of times a year and always stop here. The Brewery is off of i-10 in palm desert to the east and south of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. Tap House is in a clean well maintained industrial Park. Clean inside with lots of wood an a medium amount of seats looks like they have a smaller room also with more seating behind bar area, had a flight of brews and the BA Koffi Porter while i was there. Nice place with pleasant people , worth a visit for sure

If you love Belgian Sours, this place is simply awesome. For the Belgians, better than any other brewery in North America, that I know of, anyway. Seriously. This place is awesome.

Wolf's Ridge Brewing Tap Room

in Columbus, Ohio

4.23/5  rDev +2.4% | Avg: 4.13
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 3.5

Space is more open to standing and a communal atmosphere, with fermenting tanks right next to tables and load and loads of taps to choose from, as opposed to the brewpub which is just a few. Their beers are top notch, high quality, well balanced and varied, but it's not always easy to come by their Dire Wolf unless a special release happened recently.

They also have recently added a separate food menu from the brewpub with their own kitchen, which is closer to bar food but still elevated relative to other breweries, yet not quite as fine as their brewpub menu.

Bottle sales are often available as well, and they are pretty good at handling fairly busy bottle releases--although, if they get any more popular, they may have some problems.

Roundabout Brewery

in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

3.66/5  rDev -10.1% | Avg: 4.07
vibe: 3.25 | quality: 4.5 | service: 3 | selection: 3.5

In Western PA visiting the wife's fam and our daughter and I decide to go hit the local brewery. Lo and behold we come across little gem of a place outside of downtown Pittsburgh. Roundabout is a small place, but still roomy, if that makes sense. They have a good amount of seating and an almost equal-sized stand-about area. The bartenders were somewhat friendly, but they answered our questions politely and were patient. The quality was no-doubt very good. Their IPA on tap today was probably the smoothest I have ever had, I wish I could remember what it was called. Overall, It's a nice hangout place but it could get quite uncomfortable if they end up getting a large crowd.

Van Ness's Time Out Sports Bar

in Fremont, Ohio

4.28/5  rDev n/a | Avg: 4.64
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.25 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4 | food: 4.5

Small little place in an old living room. Food is good, the people working there are very friendly, and while the draft selection is rather small (~6 taps?), it rolls over and changes quite frequently and there is a nice selection of bottles too. Would definitely recommend this as the best place to go in the Fremont area.

North Park Beer Company

Newly opened with 7 taps flowing at the moment. Nice decor with a craftsman style to the interior.Plenty of space with a lot of tables on the main floor. A mezzanine that was not open yet will add a lot more space. Beers were pretty good, not quite sure about the Scottish ale-it is a 3% session ale. all the other taps were good. They have a large amount of future taps. Food looks to be coming soon. A sign inside said Mastiff's sausage company would open there.

Highly recommend this great beer spot. Excellent veggie burgers and apps - their Cuban corn is great. Beers on draft focus on New England craft and are designed to pair with great pub food.

vibe: 3.75 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 3.75

Newest Brewery to open. Located off Nicolett or Lyndale ave and 60th st. Close to Hwy 62, 35W Edina and Richfield so its a very convenient location. The Brew Pub is a converted equipment shop located in a light Industrial area. specializing in wild and sour brew they made a very nice spot. Its an open floor plan with indoor and outdoor seating and several bar stools with three big garage doors that open to a grass court yard, the place is kid and dog friendly also had coffee & soda . They had 5 brews on tap 4 were saisons with 1 rye wild ale. Cant wait to see what the future holds for the brews, already like this place as it just opened.

Typical Total Wine. Overall a great selection and very good prices on most brew. For me the stores are just to big and cluttered with people the big supermarket feel i dislike. Help is impersonal and rude and hard to find when you do. Ok place to go to stock up for a party or an event, i prefer my locals that i frequent.

Carillon is a unique place. It reminds me of Colonial Williamsburg. A true gem. The building itself is worth visiting even if you don't drink beer. Workers are dressed in period attire. As others have stated, the beer itself is not particularly good, but it's not bad either. And where else can you go to say you've had authentic 1850's beer? My party of four all enjoyed our food. It's a cool place, definitely worth a visit!

Hugh seating area inside, upstairs downstairs or bar area,They also have one of the best outside decks in Uptown. Happy hour is every day for different hours depending on the day, usually have 2 for 1 on drafts, On tap they rotate with the likes of Alaskan,deschutes, surly,summit,indeed odells, nothing rare but always some thing good on tap. Food is very good oysters ,clams on half shell along with crab,lobster, fish, a great selection of food. Again Upstairs deck is perfect in the summer, great vibe.

On Hennepin Ave but parking and shop is off the Ave. Store is small and brew is overpriced. the selection is adequate and as is service. Nothing special here just a small neighborhood store, only stop if in the area and need some alcohol. Otherwise skip.

A small and clean well lit store that is a full service liquor store attached but separate from the market. Nice selection for the limited space they have, helpful service with prices being a little higher than most. Somewhat hard to get in and find a parking spot as it is in Uptown and on Hennepin Ave, Worth a stop if in the area.

At Snelling and University, this store has a decent selection at fair prices , some sketchy people in and outside the store, would not want to shop late at night, if in the area and need a sixer this place has what you need otherwise skip a visit.

Easy to drive right past FS, as it is on crowded Central Ave. The brew pub is well lit with ample table and bar seating. Several taps are available as with several styles i liked that.They also have a nice and private outdoor seating area in the back away from the bustling Central Ave. Service is good, parking on busy evenings can be difficult . FS is worth a stop both for beer and atmosphere.

Hugh open brew pub with lots of Northwoods feeling. Bar has lots of beautiful wood in side with plenty of seating. A wrap around deck for out side seating has a partial view of Lake Superior. They have a swag shop and growlers both 750's and 64 ounce. Thier brew is very good had at least 8 on with flights available. There are several places nearby to grab some food and eat here. If you are in Duluth this is just a 15-20 minute ride away if traveling up Hwy 61 its just blocks away. Either case this is worth a stop.

Nice looking brewpub inside and out.Large open area to sit. Everytime ive gone place is always packed but service is always good. As other have said it a hipster place to see and be scene the brews lead towards Lagers, having said all this its still a fun place to go, 612 Brewery is just a block away. So at both places Atmosphere,Vibe > the beer.

Hugh open brewpub inside with wooden table and bench seating. They have out door seating as well a very nice courtyard with a couple of games. Garage doors lift in the spring and summer. Service was good and beers were good in a very laid back and comfortable setting. Plenty of parking and within walking distance to Indeed Brewery.

Buzzards Bay Brewing

Great location to gather and drink beers outside weather permitting. Weekends feature live music, food truck, corn hole, and beautiful scenery. In the cold weather, you can drink inside the brewery, and still have plenty of room to move about. They let you walk past the tanks and enter the back of the brewery, where you'll find live music, and the food truck moved inside the brewery. A lot to like about this location, the downside, in my opinion, every beer I've had from here is not very good, at all. Take Tree House, Bissell Brothers, The Alchemist, Maine Beer Company, and this beer would be the opposite of that. The higher ratings that it gets, I'm guessing that it's from people that haven't really experienced good beer. Come for the vibe and scenery, don't come thinking you'll find a great beer. Better than PBR, Bud, and Miller, sure, but that's not saying much.
