This is a pizza joint. Itís an Italian deli. Itís a beer store. Oh, and itís a brewpub. Hard to find, we passed it three times, and actually switched to a different GPS, then had to stop and ask at the hotel across the street. It was worth the effort. Filled to the brim with locals, plus a steady parade of people coming in for pizzas or growler fills (and, oddly, a case of PBR or Miller Lite - oh well). The pizza is terrific, and the beers are interesting enough to keep coming back. Plus, the selection of guest taps is very solid. And the prices?? $4 a beer, holy cow! Great place, and now that Terry Hawbaker is brewing here, Iíll definitely be back. 5-8-13-8-9-18, 88. SECOND RATING, now that theyíve moved into their new digs. The brewery portion is amazing, all new Braukon stuff, and now surrounded by barrels of every flavor, red wine, white wine, rum, bourbon. Seems like every small nook and cranny had a barrel in it. There are far more beers on tap, with the usual amazing stuff by Terry, some with fruit added, courtesy of Al. The pizza, thankfully, is just as delicious, the bottle shop is the same. Growler fills still available. The star of the show was the Pizza Boy sours in bottles for in house consumption. Staff is terrific, and Terry took time out from his long day (already past 6 pm) to show us around, share some beers and chat. Amazing place, worth going well out of your way to find. The only way to improve, I think, would be for them to offer sampler sizes (say, 4 ounces), especially now that the number of taps has grown so much. I want to try them all! A minor point in an otherwise amazing place. And now that they offer 8 ounce pours of any beer, even this is solved!

Pretty nondescript pizza restaurant from the looks of it, but walk inside to find a Mecca for beer. Selection is awesome, tons of taps and plenty of bottles. Food was definitely delicious. The bread they use for sandwiches is indescribably better than the standard italian sub roll I was expecting. Prices were pretty solid, you can get a pint of more widely available American micro for $4. I just wish it was bigger!

Love Alís. Iíd be there every night if I didnít live 40 minutes away. The ambiance is a bit stark, but thatís hardly a concern when one considers all of the other great aspects of Alís. The owner and staff have gone to great lengths to establish a rapport with locals and regulars, and facilitate interactions between their patrons. There is a great sense of community there that will very quickly make you forget about the utilitarian design of the place. Really, everything else ambiance wise is secondary to the camaraderie that exists here. I canít really fault the place for the lack of table service, as I think itís important to keep in mind that the restaurant portion, at its heart, is old-school pizza joint. More service isnít always better service, and preservation of a tradition sometimes takes precedence. Beyond that, the staff is fantastic. Helpful, friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate. The tap selection is quite amazing, and thoughtfully composed. The bottle selection is also excellent with some of the best prices youíll find for bottles and six packs anywhere in the state. The food is, well, itís a pizza shop, so set your expectations appropriately. Itís unpretentious, and well prepared. And all of that without even mentioning the house-brewed beers! What else can be said about Terry Hawbakerís brews that hasnít already been said? Heís a world class brewer doing what world class brewers do! All in all, this is a canít-miss place that you should definitely go out of your way for.

I canít believe I had never been here before. This place is amazing. Loads of taps (102) with about 1/4 of them being their own stuff. Super friendly staff and clean, inviting atmosphere. Tucked away in an industrial park, I would love to have this place as my local bar. I want to try the food next time Iím around.

Home run of an establishment. 100 plus taps with around half of house beers.food is great. My only gripe is no samplers or flights. Really? That should be a given with this much variety.

The food and selection are awesome. Amazing selection of single bottles. Only downside is the parking... I also heard that the owner is gonna start his own micro in the basement.

I love this place. Al is a connoisseur of beers and his beer list is awesome. He has an online list of 25 kegs and 3 casks that is updated real-time. He has a mix-a-six area that takes up the majority of 5 coolers (top shelf excluded plus a few bombers). He also has 6 upright coolers full of 6packs. The selection is superior and varied. Lots of big brews and hop-monsters. Iím a fan of porters, stouts and barleywines and there is always a dizzying selection. The list changes suffficiently from week to week that I am always surprised. Food is secondary... sorry.

Loved this place. Only thing to mAke it better would be pool tables. This is the North American equivalent of a Germanbeer garden. 102 beers on tab. Good pizza. What is not to like.

Let me start by saying that the address on the website should be changed. (luckily the new location is close by). Brand new building with a large area to sit outside. You walk in to what seems to be a cafeteria at first glance. Brewery to the left, with the barrels and fermenters. Tables in the middle and Pizza on the right. Very extensive tap selection with over 20% of the selection to be pizza boy beers. There has to be something here for you. Hungry? The pizza is amazing. I ordered more just to bring some back with me to eat that night. They also have a small selection of bottles to go (sort of like a small bottle shop) If it wasnít for the 8hour ride, Iíd be drinking/eating here all the time. Will find time to come again.

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!
