muzzlehatch  (255) Burlington, Vermont | July 26, 2005
Typical large, loud yet slightly upscale college atmosphere...reminiscent of Boston’s Sunset Grill on a bigger stage. Tap and bottle selection focuses heavily on Michigan stuff, most of the other stuff will be familiar to the hardcore beer geek, though it is mostly drinkable beer. Service very quick and efficient, food (we just had some apps) was all right. Prices seemed a bit high to me, but I confess I don’t know the Ann Arbor scene that well. Definitely a worthwhile stop in this hot little beer scene.

Great place for beet and food. With over 50 beers on tap, and 4 rotating beers on cask they have one of the best tap selections around. On top of that they have lots of bottle as well. Good food, great appetizers. Beer menu offers tons of insights into the beers themselves and into beer drinking overall. Must visit when in Ann Arbor, reasonably priced, for the most part, you will pay for the rarer stuff.

This might very well be my favorite bar ever. Service is excellent: friendly, knowledgeable. The interior is great with a super juke-box, great wood on the walls, nice booths. It’s in the middle of the perfect town for wandering around. The beer is fantastic, well taken care of. My only very minor complaint is that smoking is still allowed in Michigan bars, which can get a bit gross, and I’ve heard the parking can be problematic, though I found a spot right away. My favorite part of this bar was that I could get Bell’s Two Hearted on Tap all night long. (Being from the East Coast, this is a very big deal). Awesome, awesome place. A MUST visit.

So far my home choice for sipping a Dogfish 90. Never had bad service, employees actually have knowladge of beer. Beer always is fresh, lines are properly taken care of. Come here weekly and try something new

Absolutly nothing not to like here. I spent a hot afternoon cooling off with an awesome draft selection. Three Dragonmead handles, 90 minute on cask, and Founders. With it so slow, the service was excellent.

ElGaucho  (224) Minnetonka, Minnesota | May 24, 2005
This place is simply awesome. Dark, wooden theme with brick wall on one side. I recognized it immediately after walking in that it was the bar I remembered from my only previous visit to Ann Arbor, 12 years earlier in 1993. It was memorable to me then and it is memorable to me now. Astonishing selection of 60 taps, plus a ton of quality bottles. The taps are not your standard Bud, Guinness fare. These are harder to find gems like Dogfish Head 90 minute, Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA, Bells Oberon, Dragonmead Final Absolution, Founders Dirty Bastard, New Holland Mad Hatter IPA, and Unibroue Ephemere. Upstairs there are 3 TVs and a top of the line jukebox. The downstairs "Underground" has a cool mural and theme of the London Underground. You feel like you are in a subway station. The only detraction I could find was the lack of an outdoor patio. This is simply a must stop when in Ann Arbor.

A great beer bar. Huge tap list nothing super rare but still a great selection. A number of beers are available on hand-pull and the ones I sampled were served at a good temp. and seemed well handled. Service was quite good. Smoke is rather bothersome, but this is after all a bar.

I had an absolute blast the other night. I’m not sure if there was a private party going on or what - but the entire bar was alive and singing classic songs from the jukebox all night. It was strange to see grown men and women as well as the college kids doing that - but hey. Most important - the BEER! They have 70 freekin draughts on tap! Awesome selection in draught AND bottle! Overall - I was very impressed and plan on going back real soon.

Prices weren’t too bad. Waitress was friendly. It was nice with table service until late, which is definitely better than the typical shoulder-to-shoulder crunch at other local bars.

Service was great when I went. The friendly barkeep offered up samples of comparable beers to ones I ordered. When two beers that I ordered were unavailable I was sent seven samples of similar style beers with no charge. Food was good. Highly recommended.
