    This was my first visit to Arbor and it was awesome. I've always loved their beer, especially Buzzsaw, and the brewery is much larger than you would think. Plenty of space to move around and socialize

    This place is AMAZING! Our waiter, Mike, gave excellent recommendations and they were spot on with our own personal tastes! The food came out quickly and was to die for! We will be back!!

    Great Beer and seating. Smaller copper bar but all beer is solid. Plenty of seating. Also have some other places such as Bells on Tap.

    Many beers to try! They brew it at the restaurant and have their own brewery on site! The food is average and good prices! You can get several "baby" sized beers to try a few different flavors!

    Because I was a visitor of the fine town of Ann Arbor, Mich. My friends and I got the sampler to taste all the brews. Actually thoroughly enjoyed the espresso stout. Great place, open one in Minneapol

    Love the Phat Abbot Tripel. I've also tried tons of things on the menu and loved them all, but the Fish & Chips is my favorite (I usually sub for sweet potato fries). Happy hour prices are great!

    The service sucked beer nuts... Big time, but the beer and food were amazing. Had the Delaware Rueben and I used to think nobody could touch Zingerman's. The garlic fries are a game changer!

    The chicken nachos were the best part!! Soooo yummy and filling. If you don't love intense beers the Bollywood blonde is the way to go. Nice and citrusy

    I love this place! Great beer, great food. Only complaint - they got rid of the beer battered tempeh sandwich, which is the best veggie sandwich of all time!

    Perhaps the driest burger patty I've had in Ann Arbor- more so than the burger at scorekeepers (my least favorite burger until now). Beers are decent but the list hasn't changed much since 08

    Cheddar soup and root chips are a good way to start. I love the casual atmosphere - very pub-ish but larger with lots of tables
  • Lolo ❤.
    Cool beer garden, I liked their stouts, hubs like the Big Jam. Soft pretzel was delish.

    My best friend took me and my boyfriend out while he was in America. While he loved his burger and claims America has ruined him for British burgers, I had really crap fish and chips. I was bummed.

    While I don't *love* their beer (gasp!), their humongous vegan menu is seriously amazing. Try the lentil boxy!

    I honestly think we moved to Ann Arbor because of ABC. Great beer, awesome staff, sublime menu of bar food gone hippie. Monthly tastings and other events, outdoor seating... you really can't get any
