We visited Foothills a few years ago in pre-Sexual Chocolate days and had a great time. Jamie the brewmaster was a delight to meet and, as we were on our way to a Ratebeer Summer Gathering, he went out of his way to fit out the boot of our hire car with a liner and ice so we could take some growlers along for the Grand Tasting. I was looking forward to going back but, perhaps inevitably, I was a little disappointed this time round. The place still looks similar, with a huge hall at the front, a low ceilinged, cosier bar beyond and the brewery at the back, but I couldn’t help feeling that it was, if not quite cookie-cutterish, much more corporate and had lost some its charm. It probably didn’t help that we arrived half way through quiz night and the staff, although friendly and efficient, were very busy. Nevertheless, the beers are still good - there were 8 regulars and two seasonals on tap (but sadly they were out of Sexual Chocolate) and the food was great.

Huge place that feels more like a restaurant than bar/brewpub at first since the bar area is hidden in the back beyond dinner tables and booths. The big knock for me is that the tap list stays fairly stale: they’ll have a seasonal or two and all of their year-round stuff. The seasonals are all things you can get in the area. Other than the Sexual Chocolate release, I’ve yet to see a brewpub only release. With that in mind, I guess I haven’t seen a reason to visit Foothills when I know I’ll bump into any of the beers they’re pouring in any other bar in Winston-Salem.--- Updating this and bumping it up a few points after another visit. They had some more unique offerings on tap and said they were making more of an effort to have more special offerings at the brewpub. Here’s hoping this trend continues!--- Update 2: bumping it up more since this trend has continued. They’ve really improved the rotating selection to keep locals interested, including an IPA of the month series for 2014 and a Foot Men series of pub-only drafts!

finally made it here. walked in the front door to a huge open dining room. notice and upstairs but was informed it was for private partys. several table outside on nice days or night and for smokers. the bar area was big and woody, lots of wood throughout. bartenders melane and Stephanie were great. got the sampler 11 4oz beers for $12.99 all pretty solid except one. the food we had ostrich burger and fish and chips were both very good. overall very good experience. you can buy and refill growlers and you can even buy some bomber very reasonable.

Large two-story establishment. Very beautiful logo on plaster over brick as you enter and artfully done label posters throughout the place. They had a live band playing, but the place if big enough that you can get away from the too-loud band and still have a conversation if you wish. The bar was a little crowded, even though the rest of the restaurant was busy, but not packed. The beer was good but I didn’t try the food.

Stopped into the brewpub for a few beers while visiting Winston-Salem. The bar had a nice, modern ambiance, with an open floor-plan and ample seating. The service was very friendly and attentive, and kindly provided some free samples to help make decisions. They have a very good beer selection, with many of their own beers on tap, along with a good range of bottles (to go as well) and other beers. The beers are fairly priced. I did not try the food. Very nice brewpub, would visit again.

Large place, we ate at the bar. Food was good - felt a bit like a box restaurant like an Applebee’s somehow, but my wife’s chicken was competent, and my brats were fine. A very large tap selection of their outstanding beers available. Well worth the stop.

The ambiance here leaves some to be desired. Its like they cant decide what they want to be today. A restaurant, a sports bar, or a beer pub. They cant do it all! Luckily they do have some very good beer. Service is fair, food is average. Still a good place to go. Ketchup is awesome!

Large place with a large bar running about half its length. Lots of folks were here mainly to eat, and the food going by looked very tasty, especially the pizza. We shared a very tasty app. Huge range of beers included a few of their standard offerings, but the highlight were the seasonals, which included two black IPAs. I have a soft spot for black IPA. I wish the server had explained how the flights worked, but everything worked out in the end. A must-stop while in W-S.

Attractive building with a separate restaurant/mezzanine and bar with view of the original brewing area. Very knowledgable and friendly bartenders/waitstaff with a decent selection of beers on tap and diverse menu items. Food is usually good with a few entrees being hit or miss, (yet they offer one of my favorite chips and salsas out there). Value is decent for both food and drink and I am happy to say that I am a regular here!

Located in downtown Winston-Salem, not far from City Beverage. I didn’t see a parking lot but I had no trouble finding a spot on the street a block away. Big interior with high ceilings and lot of exposed brick with a large bar in the back along the left side. They had 8-10 on tap with a couple that were unique to the bar. Nothing was extraordinary or outstanding on my visit but it was solid. I might go back if in the area.
