    January is Belgian month. Choices: Saison nouveau (on the light side), Houblon rouge, double vision (potent), and Belgian special. My favorite month So it's my birthday month an extra $10 on the card

    Great place for a chain. Good selection of beer (as they should!) and tasty food. Love the sweet potato fries, hate the raspberry aioli with it. Make a chipotle aioli instead :)

    Love to come and try the sampler every month. This month my favorite is Milk Chocolate Stout. The potato bacon egg rolls are perfect companions to the darker beers.

    Beer Works makes the best and freshest fruit beers. In the summer I'll get a flight of all of them.

    One and done. Have a beer and go across the street to scratch kitchen they have a decent beer selection and better food. Beer works is good but scratch kitchen is great.

    My favorite traditional buffalo style hot wings. Bone-in of course. If you ask nicely, the kitchen will grill them which adds to the flavor.

    I liked the blueberry, watermelon, old ironsides, then the stout. Blueberry was fantastic!

    Any bar with its own brewery is fine by us! Be sure to check out the monthly specials for some delicious Irish fare!

    Sometimes you'll get lucky and have a really great bartender, but other than that, everything about this place is just average.

    Large space. Ipa's were good, porters and stouts needed work. Food allergy friendly. Super nice staff.

    Bartenders are very friendly, sit at the bar and ask about the months beers and what is on cask.

    Great beer, pretty good food. However I have repeatedly had such bad service here I can barely go back. They need to get rid of the "team waiter" system- it leads to a lack of service all around.

    Their pumpkin ale has a delicious pumpkin-spiced sugar rim that compliments the beer nicely.

    Beer was good! Food tasted like it had been sitting under a heat lamp for a while though. Had to send back our dough bites bc they had basically turned into stale croutons.

    The ribs were awful. Couldn't pull them apart and they were cold. The waiter wanted to argue with me until I showed me trying to tug them apart. Obviously raw or rushed cooked. Beer was good.
