Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon for lunch and some beer. Parking is on the street, but we only had to park a block or so away. The place wasnít too busy and we were seated right away. The atmosphere here is pretty cool. Lots of beer signage and old world pub feel going on. The tap list was pretty impressive with Jackie-Os and Weasel Boy Bourbon Barreled Anastasia on draft and hundreds of bottles to choose from. Lots of limited release stuff to be had. Our waitress was very attentive and one of the most knowledgeable beer waitresses Iíve ever had. I got a goat cheese burger with habanero peppers on it that was enormous and delicious. It came with tortilla chips and some of the tastiest salsa Iíve encountered. I wish I would have had more of that salsa. Pricing is about on par for the area. Bottle prices seemed especially nice. If you ever get the chance to stop in to this place, youíre in for a treat. I will be back.

Went here a few times when our daughter went to college at Denison. Brews benefits from being the only game in town, but that said they still do a pretty good job. Donít have the beer selection that places in Cleveland have, but for Granville itís the best.

This place has a pretty wonderful beer selection and the ambiance is excellent. The upstairs (via the side staircase) is a complete dive--that part stays open much later than the proper bar, which was too bad, because it sharply limited my time in the bar. But fortunately Scott working at the bar was extremely kind and let me get a quick one (or two) in while he was sweeping up. A big thanks to him for that!

I live in Westerville, an Ohio town which also hosts a small college, but downtown Granville is quainter and seems to have more to offer than down-town Westerville. And Brews Cafe is a part of that appeal. They had an impressive beer list, and pretty decent food. I have a cousin at Dennison, and plan on visiting to drag my family back to Brews Cafe once school is back in session.
I visited with Jabier and ate on the 2nd story balcony, so I didnít get a very good feel for the interior other than that it was spacious and dark. The porch over-looked the main street running through town, and was a nice place to sit. The beer list was the biggest Iíve seen yet in an Ohio on-premise establishment. My food was OK - I had a Cuban sandwich which wasnít grilled; it just came on a roll, and that isnít a huge plus for me....it did taste good though and the fries were quite tasty for a sit-down place (usually I find that fast food has the best fries). The beer list was good, and my beer came in a style appropriate glass and seemed well cared for. I struck out a few times on the menu - it sort of annoys me when the beer list isnít up-to-date, but that is a minor complaint. This place is a gem in the rough, and I plan on making a return visit.

What a great place to eat and drink in a quaint, little college town. The food was excellent and the beer selection was top notch. Our server was extremely friendly. In an otherwise lame beer area of Columbus, this Oasis will be visited by us on many occasions in the future. The pizzas are extremely good and so was the spinach dip.

What a find 25 miles or so east of Columbus. Solid draft list with a good mixture of styles. I tried Lindemanís Pomme, Rogue Brutal Bitter, Breckenridge 471, and Delirium Noel on tap. Good bottle selection as well. Wood fired pizza with an extensive ingredient list for "build your own". The service was friendly and could answer most questions, what she didnít readily know she went and found out. Nice old building in a quaint little college town. Excellent!!!!!!!!!

Very impressive selection of craft and rare beers on draft and by the bottle. Three floors with dining/bar on 1, dining area on 2, and Brews Too bar on 3. Food was good and moderately priced. Racer 5, Vertical Epic 07, Avery 14er on draft.

Greatest selection of craft, rare, and seasonal beers Iíve ever seen in a restaraunt. I only had a chance to drink one beer in there, but if i had all night (or a high tolerance), I would have drank one of everything. Iím looking forward to going back and trying more beers and some food. The food menu looks great.
