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...
Great burgers & rings
Chicken tortilla soup
Beers were just ok and they stop serving food early which they do not advertise on their website
Sandwiches!! And everything else!
French dip. Cheddar ale soup-- no brainer, get it. Beer- new world IPA
A Lawrence, KS. must stop.... One of the best places in Kansas to stop for lunch or dinner and award winning beers.
Local Micro Brewery to check out! Good food & even better beer.
They had some 4 or 5 IPAs on tap, and a massive rainstorm came through. All around cool.
Great food and great beer. The downtown setting is convent and cozy.
Cheddar Ale Soup for the soul.
The bartenders are all rude; I'm officially done with this place for good. Free State employees should attempt to treat their customers with a modicum of respect.
The bar tending staff always seem put-out about having to do their jobs, and are consistently surly, which makes me want to avoid this place.
Great place, great selection of great beer, great service.
Try the Burroughser Weisse!
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.
The fish & chips & the burgers are delicious! On Sunday afternoons they're really busy!
Bigger & nicer than I expected, really packed on a basketball game day. Food was good, as was the selection of beers.
Chopped salad Verde is my new favorite! Add a little sriracha for a kick.
The beers on tap - brewed in the company’s 14-barrel brewhouse - are as varied as the clientele, making for a casual, welcoming environment. - © 2013 BuzzFeed, Inc
Try the dinner specials whenever possible, however have a back-up in mind. They tend to go fast, my backup is always fish and chips!
They've got some pretty tasty sandwiches!
Awesome place! We are from out of state stopped in and had a blast! Great bartenders amazing fish and chips! I wish we could visit more often!
Chicken Basil Schnitzel was awesome!
They stop filling growlers at 7 on Sundays :-(
Blood orange radler is perfection.
So yummy eat it lol yum
Order the oatmeal wine
Leave room for dessert
Oatmeal Stout is simply amazing
Remind them of the second night they were open in 1989 when they ran out of beer and had to serve MICHELOB LIGHT, bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha
Do yourself a favor and order the black cherry fresh lemonade with vodka (special order). The best cocktail in Lawrence.
Utilize the call ahead seating option because this place gets BUSY!
Their onion rings and mustard are the best. Also, if you're not a big beer person but still want to try it get a Cyclist - half fresh lemonade, half Wheat State Golden. Yum!
The fish and chips are amazing. Always get a table on the top floor, get an amazing view.
The barleywine is amazing!
When it's a special, get the country fried steak! You will not be disappointed.
Black bean quesadillas!!! Mmm.
You can always count on the specials for a delicious, flavorful meal.
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
Order a black and tan!
The cowtippin stout and full kimona are on tap. Try em
Artichoke dip is awesome
One of my favs in Lawrence.
I always take out of town visitors to Free State for a beer. Go Copperhead!
try the brownie and mint ice cream dessert. Ohhhh my goodness its good.
