One great place. Makes me with I went to Denison for school. I was never carded there, even when I was 17 and went to the Arrogant Bastard promotion. The staff generally seem to know what going on with their beers and theyve always had a diverse lineup of taps. Upstairs has a nice bar area for those looking to play pool and get drinks, so its got something for everyone.

This has got to be the best beer bar in Ohio, they have approx. 250 botteled beers and 20 taps all craft or imported. The food is excellent, and the rumor is they are moving to a larger building which when they get there they are doubling their taps to 40 taps.

We made the 50 minute drive from Hillard out to Granville to visit Brews today and I was absolutely impressed with the great new building. 3 stories with a nice old world pub feel. Great taplist. 45 handles! And a huge wall of coolers behind the bar that I didnít even get into. How could I with all the unusual taps they had. Food was much better than this site lets on too. I had the NY Strip with Onion rings and a great porter bbq sauce on it that I tried very hard to get the recipe for... Service was excellent and they catered well to my family of 5 . My waiter was quite friendly and knowledgable about the beers they served. I noticed that children isnít checked on here but I certainly didnít see where they were a problem at all. I agree with the previous poster that said this is the best bar in Ohio. I agree as far as selection this one might be the best at least in Central Ohio! Awesome place!

Years ago I used to visit my grandparents in Granville, so Iíve always wanted to visit this place. Granville has changed quite a bit, I couldnít get a phosphate at the local drug store bar anymore, but all and all I wasnít disappointed. Brews Cafe is without a question the best beer bar Iíve been to in Ohio, possibly the best period. Lots of one onlys on tap, and a bottle collection that is second to none. On tap, they had Harviestoun Ola Dubh (30 Year Old) , many of Ommangangís stuff on tap that Iíve never seen any where else, etc, etc. Food was good pub food. Neat little town to go to regardless of Brews Cafe to boot. Great beer stop.

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.

This place was amazing! I arrived around noon and didnít have to wait to get a table. I sat upstairs. Lots of room. I ordered a Breakfast Stout and a Burning River on tap. I had the Chili which was awesome. Very spicy which was perfect. I was also reccommended the Philly Chessesteak by Dawn. It was alright. I had high expectations on this so it wasnít really fair. Not alot of grease and chesse. It was good though. I had some Blue Chips that my cousin ordered. Out of this world. Chips soaked in alfredo sause with blue chesse chunks all over. The waitress was very nice and surprisingly knowledgable about beer. After my lunch I went downstairs to get a couple of bottles to go. Iím really jealous that Speedway is a regular in Ohio. I picked up a Speedway, Alesmith IPA, Yulesmith, and a couple Great Lakes brews (canít remember off the top of my head). The prices were really reasonable for it being a bar. This is a must stop if youíre in the area.

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!!!!!!!!!

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.
