Oh well, a rating for my ratebeer travel log. I didnít know Bavarian Barbarian had closed down until I started typing this. Sad. This was basically a one-man operations and the one-man was a friendly one. A small operation and visiting the brewery was nothing spectacular, small industrial type of place. A small counter where I was served free samples of all the beers. A nice experience. There was passion behind this operation, I donít know what happenedÖ Oh well, I was there.

Tasting room offering all of their latest beers, on tap. You want bottles of it? Just down the street at the Wegmans. Generous samples, and a seasonal if it is arounbd. Worth a stop if you are in the area, clsoe walk to Bullfrog as well.

An interesting and unique establishment in the back of a warehouse setting. Theyíve added bottle sales to their lineup, as well as dog cookies. Cozy little beer tasting area. Talked to the bartender (read:wife) for awhile and learned a lot. Had a free sample of the Saison.

What kmweaver said: located in the back of a warehouse, itís actually a neat setup with a some bar stools, a few couches, a neat place to hand out for a quick drink, with the entire brewery within view on the other side of the warehouse. The brewers wife was pouring samples and filling growlers, she was a blast to talk to, very nice and personable, and answered a lot of questions. Beer quality is good, the selection isnít mind-blowing - only 4 taps - wheat, brown, amber, IPA, but all are worth trying, with the brown being pretty spot on for English style brown ale. Easy to find, easy street parking, but limited hours, so be sure itís open when you go through.

Visiting the Bavarian Barbarian was definitely an experience: tucked back at the end of a long corridor, passing by a diner full of old people at long tables, possibly playing bingo, or knitting, the BB opens up into a huge, clean, sparsely furnished warehouse area full of fermented tanks and scattered furniture. A small bar is attentively staffed by the brewerís wife, who was a delight to talk to - really great, friendly service. The main bar area is about four stools wide, one for each of the beers they had on tap: amber, IPA, brown, and wheat. All were enjoyable, pleasantly dry, and generally flawless - the wheat ale was especially crisp and good. Mike (I think!) is the brewer here, and he showed up about halfway through our visit and began setting up tables for a wedding reception that was actually being held inside the brewery the next day. To be honest, things are a little makeshift throughout, and itís a really cool opportunity to see a brewery in its beginning stages. No pints are served here, but you can get up to a 12oz free sample of each - be sure to tip heavily and pick up some growlers before you leave. Really hope these folks get off the ground and expand their lineup a bit (and try the Berliner Weisse again with some tarted-up oak barrels!).
