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.

Open seating, separate areas to order beer and food, s little strange. 100 taps, no samplers, nice little bottle shop. Solid pizza and beer

Not at all the place shown in the photo, this must be a new location ... a well appointed warehouse-y joint with a step-up bar and step-up pizza ordering spot that share the same tabs. An amazing lineup of 60 taps, all well displayed on a first-class electronic board ... full of local and regional choices, not to mention about 10 Pizza Boy Brewing options. The pizza was delicious, delivered hot and handmade. And the three beers I tried were all very good. Understand we were lucky to visit on Monday night ... it can apparently get packed. It was pretty full, always a great sign. Blue star! (Brewery #661)

Beer Quality// very good
Beer Philosophy// roughly a dozen rotating taps; beer nerd friendly; experimental offerings;
Serving Sizes// no flights; half pours; full pours
Growler Situation// 32oz and 64oz (limited to only screwtops due to tap height; will fill theirs or others)
Food Situation// good pizza parlor food
Ambiance// industrial; pizza parlor style booths; lots of exposed white cinder-block walls
Overall// a must visit destination worth a detour; in addition to their beer, they have several dozen guest offerings including many locals

Fantastic destination, a must visit for anyone in the area. 100+ taps, including many of their very own Pizza Boy gems. The foodís solid too, and itís great to hang out on their back porch on a warm day.

Al runs a tight ship here and Terry brews some great beers. The new place is large and open with ample seating and parking. An enticing pizza display greats you up front along with an impressive wall of taps. The cooks are humming along keeping the pizzas fresh and the bar service is constant. This is a top notch establishment. Thanks for hanging with us Al and Terry.
