The Free State Brewing Co. opened in 1989 as the first legal brewery in Kansas in over 100 years. Located in a renovated inter-urban trolly station in historic downtown Lawrence, the Brewery was an early participant in the rejuvenation of the north end of the downtown business dist...
Got to free state and get a growler!
Some of the best microbrew in America. Too many great ones to list; if you are a first-timer don't miss Copperhead, Oatmeal Stout, and Ad Astra. If in season, Octoberfest, Lemongrass Rye, C4, & Marzen
Drink the Ad Astra with just about anything. It's my favorite.
Get the Copperhead. By far the best beer.
Definitely a must-go in Lawrence,KS. one of the ten Kansas dinning wonders.
It's a Must when visiting Lawrence, KS. They have some incredible Beers on Tap, order the C4 Imperial IPA if available, it's one of the Best Beers out there!! Some Select Pints are $1.75 on Mondays!!!
All you need is the Cheddar Ale Soup and an order of onion rings.
Definitely try the Oatmeal Stout. It is made out of delicious.
Mondays are when beers are on "Sale". $1.75 each. Get a table and an appetizer around happy hour time unless you want to rub elbows...its packed at the bar.
Pint Night on Mondays is the way to go. $1.75/pint.
Try some of the newer beers like Stormwatch, Praire Fog Ale and Big Sea ESB.
The fish and chips with an Ad Astra is the way to go.
When it's a special, get the country fried steak! You will not be disappointed.
A personal fav. Gotta have the Chedder Ale Soup.
The Ad Astra Beer is toooo good!
When they do Mustard Madness in March, you should definitely check it out. Great food and a ton of fun to try a bunch.
Crimson Berry Ale!
Go to Free State Brewery and be sad that it's no longer March Mustard Madness. Drown sorrows in house mustard.
FYI: You can order half orders of some of their menu items
Copperhead is where it is at!
The best restaurant and brewery in Lawrence hands down. Food: brewhouse salad, French dip, Thai noodles, savona tuna sandwich. Beer: hop jack, copperhead, C4, saison, Octoberfest, winterfest, konza
I always take out of town visitors to Free State for a beer. Go Copperhead!
When in doubt, Turkey Bacon Foccacia
Ask for a Cyclist — Wheat State Golden beer + lemonade — it's not on the menu, but a great summer drink!
oatmeal stout..hummus..butternut ravioli. I could go on for days. by far my favorite place in Lawrence.
Black bean quesadilla or tomato artichoke tortellini
When Old Backus is on tap, this moves to No. 1.
Turkey bacon focaccia dipped in the cheddar ale soup is the best thing here!
Fish n chips...seriously!!!
Try out the new Josiah Miller IPA!
Great food and great beer. The downtown setting is convent and cozy.
Get the Burroughser Weisse while it is still around! I'm not a big beer drinker but I seriously loved the sour finish to this beer. Their pasta specials are also pretty great.
Hey Wang what are you doing, this is the parking lot.
Chopped salad Verde is my new favorite! Add a little sriracha for a kick.
Utilize the call ahead seating option because this place gets BUSY!
The fish and chips are amazing. Always get a table on the top floor, get an amazing view.
Black bean quesadillas!!! Mmm.
try the brownie and mint ice cream dessert. Ohhhh my goodness its good.
Best chicken flautas! Seriously gotta try them.
Have a delicious Oatmeal Stout!
Especially on weekend nights, call ahead for seating. Then, come a little early and grab a beer at the bar.
If you enjoy apples pies try tart tatin. Simply delicious!
Seafood and Crawfish Gumbo, oh how I miss thee! Dang low carb diet. But, everyone else . . . go there and enjoy! It's AWESOME!
If you're there and Josiah Miller is there. Hook up!
The Copperhead Chicken Tenders and The Hot Artichoke Dip are maybe the best foods I have ever eaten. I crave them at least once a week!
