There is no better selection of beer in Ann Arbor. From Dogfish 120 and Dogfish World Wide to Trappiste Rochefort 10 and Double Crooked Tree, this place has it all. Recently tried beers from a brewery I had not heard of--Oddside Ales--and they were excellent. The food is decent, but nothing to rave about. Pizza and burgers are good. I would go for the Lineman Burger if you like big sloppy ones. They have a beer tour, where you are rewarded for trying a certain number of beers. Highly recommended for the beer buff (as well as the scotch/whiskey buff). Need to get there early, as it fills up quick once grad students head out of their office around 4:30 or 5 pm. Certainly the place to be for beer snobs.

Reviewed after dozens of visits. Set in the heart of Univ. of Michigan’s campus it can attract plenty of young/and or inexperienced drinkers, but it still a better pick than anything on South University. They do a fair share of events and tap take overs while spamming your e-mail all day about it, but still have a larger selection than all other bars around the area. Service is very hit or miss depending on who waits on you and the food isn’t great, but good. Selection is Ashley’s strongest suit as there’s really only the brewpubs and Bar Louie that can compete.

cratez  (234) Toronto, Ontario | June 12, 2012
When I visited: March 2012. What I had: Bell’s Third Coast Beer (draught), Founders All Day IPA (draught), Bay Chowder, Yardbird Sandwich, some of my friend’s Flander’s Red Ale. What I liked: Massive tap list with excellent representation of Michigan crafters, tasty pub grub, ample seating, fun and approachable atmosphere, great location in the heart of downtown. What I disliked: Mediocre and somewhat neglectful service, getting the stare down from a group of locals because we took their regular seats, bottles and draughts are extensive but I had tried almost everything on the menu (very few rarities). Would I go back? Yes. Overall Rating: 80

Great selection, mediocre service, sports bar atmosphere. Far as I can tell this is the best selection in Ann Arbor so I’ll probably be back a couple of times while I’m here, but I’d hate for this to be my local.

A little disappointed after hearing so much about this place. It started off bad when I ordered a Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout on draft. It came out ice cold, not what I was expecting. Their selection was ok, but I was expecting a better rotation of taps. The food was average, with having to send some stuff back because it was very cold. The service was ok, as several people in our party had empty glasses for far too long. Cool college town bar though with a better selection than most.

Stopped in on a rainy Sunday to catch the Bears game while in town on business. Place was mostly empty which was nice surprise. Deaftones playing on the jukebox. Bartender and fellow patrons were friendly and buffalo wrap I had was tasty. Found a rare Shorts wrap on tap and a couple of other tasty brews on tap. Kind a cross between an old college bar and beer destination. Best bar I have been to in Michigan and will try to make it back in before I leave town. Seems like they have quite a few beer events too.
