    The veggie chili with smoked brisket is amazing. You put the brisket in the chili yourself. #DIYChili

    Everything we tasted here was delicious! Salmon and grits, barbeque sauce flight, beer, pulled pork nachos, brisket, hash, hamburger. It was all good!

    Got the memphian, tasted ok but half thru the sandwich every bite had bone hard pieces. Terrible. Service was horrible.

    The food is better than the beers. Couldn't finish the beer sampler because of taste.

    Great beers. They only brew each beer once, so they are constantly changing. Reasons to come back!

    "The Memphis" dry rubbed, slow cooked, pulled pork is perfect, as is the house slaw.

    The ribs were cooked very well. The sauce, on the other hand, wasn't up to snuff in my opinion.

    Service here is really bad. We've been sitting here for over 15 minutes and nobody bothered to come and ask what we want.

    The chili is sooooo good! Get it with chorizo and ask for some extra spicy bbq sauce

    Not the timeliest place for an hour lunch break..

    The pork tacos were the first thing I'd ever had from Against the Grain and they are amazing! Must try!

    Citra Ass Down is a great IPA. If you are lucky enough to be there when they have it on tap, order it!

    Tracey Saelen · August 2, 2013

    Sample totally worth it!!

    Um...this menu design seems kinda racist to me. Why is the caricature for "dark" beers the only one holding a gun? In other news, free WiFi (no wi-Fi password) here, but few outlets.

    Great rotating selection of beers.

    Thumbs down the reviews are right...

    Bo & Luke BBQ sauce was gross. Cole slaw was not good. Green beans were OK, tasted like they were from a can. Pulled pork was OK, but cold to Luke warm when they brought it out. Service was great.

    The hickory nachos were awesome. Beer can chicken not so good. Interesting beer definitely for the more adventurous beer drinker

    Had the smoked chicken wings, they were so good and dipping them in honey was a great combo of salty and sweet. Read more

    The "Ham" Burger made w/ ground pork is delicious and the constantly rotating lineup of locally made beers will keep you checking back. If you're a veggie, don't worry, they have a great menu for you

    The beer sampler is 6 bucks..

    Brisket was smoked so good I didn't bother with the sauce. Baked beans were incredible. The smoked cole slaw was not to my liking but may just be me. Service was attentive and friendly.

    Brisket sandwich has pickled onions on it and all sandwiches come with piclkles, in case you want to request they be left off.

    If they have it try Kein Lacheln Mein Nachbar, a kellar/zwickle cross, hoppy but oaky. Means no smiling, my neighbor.
