A huge warehouse with food, beer, video games and open seating. No real service the guy serving the beer was a geek and liked to chat. Selection is just awesome with tons of guest taps. Food was good and prices a bit high but worthy of the food quality. This place rocks, with the only issue being no small pours or samples, you must commit.
This place was pretty cool. Lots of screaming and loud children that seemed to belong to a baseball team of sorts. Everything was ordered at the bar with a lone girl walking around and picking up empty plates. The selection is awesome. Since Pizza Boy is known for sours, I was hoping there might be more of those on, but there werenít. The pizza was great. Boy did I smash that thing. The price was a little high, but it was worth it. I would definitely recommend this place!
Wonderful pizza joint featuring, surprise, Pizza Boy beer. Pizza was spot on, although a little pricey. They have 99+ beers on, including over 30 of their own. Crowlers and growlers to go, no flights though. The beer was pretty good too. You have to order at the counter so no waited but you might get your beer faster that way anyway. I recommend hitting this spot.
Large and busy brewery with food and beer to go coolers. Plenty of parking space. Industrial feel. Clean which is a plus. Huge list of tap beers. Biggest I saw. They do have around 30 beers of their own to try. No samples sadly. Half pours are often of high end price wise. Quality of beers was very good and OK. So hit and miss. Conveniently located close to hwy.
Ton of beers on tap including a crap load of their own. Pizza is good. Crowlers available for almost anything on tap ... what else to say. If this place was closer (~2hr drive) I would be here at least weekly. Only down side is no samplers or flights, but they do sell 8oz pours.
After many years I had a convenient opportunity to visit this revered restaurant/brewery. Located not too far from I-81 at the end of a court. Outside is a standard cinder-block building, inside is an almost industrial-cafeteria style design with beer coolers all over. You order at a register where they bring you food and beer. The draft list is their own offerings and others, some 80+ drafts! The pizza was excellent, the in-house sour drafts were great too. Bottles of beer are sold, and so are growlers/crowlers of their drafts. Service was excellent; I left a very happy person with pizza, a crowler and some bottles. I will be back.
I agree with GenDV138ís comment that Alís feels a bit like a cafeteria. However, thereís an amazing number of quality taps, friendly service, and great pizza, so I have no complaints. My group visited after the lunchtime rush and found the place still pretty busy. The draught options were pretty dizzying. There were roughly 30 Pizza Boy beers on plus another 60-odd guests. The Pizza Boy beers, especially the sours, were very good and inventive. The guest beers were also strong, and certainly werenít there just to fill space. The staff were uniformly pleasant, friendly. We split a pizza and were pretty damn satisfied with it. The only downside of this place is that the staff is very hesitant to give out samples, and no flights are available. However, smaller pour sizes are available, so large groups should be able to make a decent dent in the list. Overall, this place is world class.

Nice brewpub in a big open space overlooking the brewing operations. Cafeteria-style atmosphere with a decent sized L-shaped bar and plenty of tables. Friendly service for the most part. Vast amount of taps so youíre sure to find plenty of interesting beers to try. Pretty good amount of house-brewed beers on draft with around 15-20 offerings in the mix of guest taps. Smallest serving size is 8 ounces and you can only order one beer at a time, no flights. Crowlers and growlers available on most drafts. Decent bottle selection available to drink on-site or to-go depending on the beer. Hand tossed pizzas are quite good and filling with just two slices. Good value on beer and food. For some odd reason, thereís no option to tip if paying by credit card so make sure to have some cash. Thereís an ATM available. Definitely the best place Iíve been to for the classic pizza and beer combo. A must stop if passing by or in the area.
Superb bar and brewery with kitchen and bottle shop all in the same space. Itís layout reminded me a little of a cafeteria but somehow Al manages to make it work and provides a comfortable environment to imbibe in. Great selection of draft beers, and honestly the main reason to visit is for the excellent Pizza Boy and Intangible Ales (bottles only) available here. Food is tasty and hearty with pizzas, subs, soups and stromboli being dished up from the kitchen. Staff are generally excellent and very friendly. Crowlers can be filled for takeaway. This place rocks - a must visit!
Large, bright, open. Huge dining room, long bar. I was worried as the parking lot was full but found a bar seat no problem. Did not try the food this time. No flights or tastes which is lame, but 8 ounce pours are in the $3-5 range. Prices on growler fills are solid as well. A million-ish taps with a good range of house beers and local / US micros with some rarities. Decent selection of bottles as well. Bartenders were helpful and somewhat friendly. I miss the coziness of the old place, but this is still a world class stop.
For historical sake, my review of the old location: Located in a mini-strip mall next to a fairly residential area. Itís RIGHT off the interstate, which makes it convenient. Itís a pizza/sub kinda joint, and the bacon cheeseburger sub I had was tasty. It was fairly steady the whole time I was there especially for mid-day on a work day. I can imagine this place gets crowded. Lots of taps with their own beers and a lot of other high quality craft beers, including up to three cask options at a time (I had Thirsty Dog Wee Heavy on Cherries). The four Pizza Boy (the house brand) beers I had were all good. A sampler of 5 beers is $10 and my total bill including tax was less than $19. Prices on full pours looked solid. They fill growlers but I didnít see growler fill prices. Tons of bottle options to go. Some prices were high, some were quite reasonable. The people there were really helpful and friendly. If I lived around here, this would be my local.
