Heaven on Earth. This is a fantastic place. It combines all the bestm things in life. Pool tables. Extremely comfortable furniture and waitresses in Schoolgirl uniforms. By the way great selection of American and European beer. The somewhat 80+ taps are overwhelming.

I have never seen this many taps in my life. Plus, they’ll let you buy beer samplers, for those of you rating fiends out there. Trust me, you need to know nothing more than go. Please, for your sake, go to this haven.

I’ve been to a few better places in the world... but not many. Great atmosphere, wonderful place for having a beer and listening to live bands, excellent for relaxing on a hot summer day. Weekdays are very relaxed. Good for people watching as two big open windows in the covered outdoor area open onto the street. For the nerds in Memphis, they have free Wireless access. Bring your laptop and have a beer. Not on weeknights though, it gets a bit crowded. 75 beers on tap at all times, continually changing selection of bottled beers.

overall the place was pretty good, said they had 136 beers, many on tap. ’fire sale’ beers for $2.75 a pint. i dont know if the value was that good for the area, but it was really good compaired to seattle or san diego. service was really good, place was very busy but never had to wait for another beer.

My family had a hard time pulling me out of there. Great selection and atmosphere. The wait staff was knowledgable and friendly, tables were large picnic style tables, music was cranking, and the food was decent.

My visit was early in the afternoon during a weekday. The place was pretty quiet but by the time I left at 4:00 PM I could tell this place gets loud and hectic as the traffic on Beale Street picks up. With the open windows you have a great view of everything that goes on.

Monday nights are $2.75 pints on most drafts if you happen to be there on the right day. I wasn’t but even at $4.50 the local beers were reasonably priced. Nothing on the menu was outrageously expensive. The selection covered a nice range of styles though I didn’t see any particularly big beers. Either distribution of some familiar brands has not made it this far south or they have some caps on those styles. Nonetheless you’ll be able to find something you like.

The main reason to come here is for the local offerings. In one visit you can tick off Mississippi (Lazy Magnolia) and Tennessee (Yazoo and Ghost River) as well as a couple of other states if you so please. Service is fast, the wait staff is friendly, and with plenty of seating options you should have no problem finding a place unless it is at capacity.

Just a block or so off Beale Street in Memphis in the Peabody complex. A very cool place! So many tap handles! We stopped in a couple of times on a Friday night in Memphis. An amazing variety of beers. Our server, Kelly, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We split a couple of pretzels with a few sauces so did not eat dinner here. Ambiance is unique with plates all over the walls and ceiling. Our second visit, late on Friday, had a $3 cover charge and a band playing in the front. Dart games seemed to be a constant in the back. A great place to get quality beer in Memphis.

Stopped in around Christmas time a few years back.Very comfortable place.HUGE selection of beers on tap.I mean a bunch.Prices not bad.Fine looking waitresess dressed in Catholic school uniforms and high stockings with maryjanes.Nice touch.I had 2 or 3 pints of favorites and 2 or 3 new tastes.Didnt eat because I had a dinner spot picked out earlier across the street.Watched a football game on a huge projection screen while getting toasty.Wish there were more of these establishments outside of the South.
