I liked this place. pretty good selection of above average beers including an aged imperial stout, friendly bar tenders, who seem to like their jobs. Good value and worth a stop.

Visited in September 2010. This is a college town brewpub staffed with college students. The interior is somewhat dark, though nicely decorated. Our service was pleasant, the food good, and beer average to above average.

Visited the place with beastiefan2k, as it is his hangout. Very quite when we were there. 2 other dudes around the bar, and maybe one group at a table. A simple, large sport bar looking brewpub in a college town. Plenty of blonde college girls for the waitstaff. They seemed to be friendly enough. Knowledgeable of the brewerís tedious schedule. All of the beers here were all very well made. As good as the beer at Free State (of which receives all of the credit in town). Pub chips were tasty and addicting. I would definitely go back to this place. 12sept09

All the rating for this place are old and probably donít really apply anymore. As I understand this used to part of a different (lesser quality) brew chain but has now gone solo. Also the brewer used to work for Free State. The interior is nice, a tall dome over the center, very high ceilings everywhere and lots of room. The first time I have seen TVs at some booths. Shiny fer mentors on the 2nd floor balcony. On a busy night with a very large party we got good service but it was only ok the next night when it was quite. Food was slightly above average brewpub fair with lots of different salads and pizza type foods as well. Beer, now I only had two but I was very impressed. The seasonal Dunkel was superb and the Barleywine was above average. Most interesting they had a lot of taps with 4-5 seasonals and 4-5 regular brews. Prices are awesome (from a NYers POV) $3/pint.
Re-rate: been living in Lawrence for a while now and while I love the beer they make the food is atrocious, I think at this point I refuse to go there for dinner. If you need to grab something with the beer go with the pub chips. Beer prices have gone up as well. They have a lot more overhead with too many servers, too much room, and the cost of all that salt in their dishes.

A nice place, formerly Emerson Biggins and Sports Page Brewery. Never crowded, yet is set up nice.

A sports bar like brewpub in a building with an extremely high ceiling. Lots of TVs with lots of bar top tables and a large L shaped bar. Service was good but bartender didnít seem too knowledgeable about the beers. A nice number of taps available. I didnít try the food on my visit. Prices were quite nice.

Visited on Jan 25, 2008 with beastiefan2k, Gregis and csbosox. My first visit to 23rd was right as they were attempting to close down a few hours early on a Friday night. Chris sweet talked the bartender into staying open for us. Only had one of their beers, and the kitchen was closed - certainly will look to re-rate this and give it a full proper rating. They had 8-10 beers on, nice variety of styles. Very interesting and large brewpub. The entire restaurant is U shaped, surrounding a large bar that has the brewery basically in the middle of the U, mostly on the 2nd level. Really a strange set up, but visually, makes it pretty cool to look at. As noted by Eugene, many of the older ratings are for the previous owners.

Well, i quite liked this place. friendly to those new to craft beer and not too diluted to the veteran. good number of taps, food was a bit greasy but pretty tasty, and friendly staff. and i wish i remembered her name but my server was a fox, god she was hot, and somewhat knowledgeable too. A recommended stop before you hit Freestate..

Has the usual BJs appearance: big windows, high ceiling, raised bar floor with bright and shiny everything. Had the yuppie college crowd and music playing way too loud when we visited (11:30pm, Friday night, oh well). Staff was very nice and speedy... beer really wasnít that bad. Nothing to rave about, but most everything they had was made very well. Good use of hops.

The atmosphere of 23rd street is almost like a chain restaurant. Olive green walls, wood paneling, etc. The beer selection isnít bad but then again itís not extraordinary, either. Likewise the food can be a bit bland. Service is usually solid and you wonít have to wait to get in. Itís tough to compete with the other brewery across town.
