Attractive building with a separate restaurant/mezzanine and bar with view of the original brewing area. Very knowledgable and friendly bartenders/waitstaff with a decent selection of beers on tap and diverse menu items. Food is usually good with a few entrees being hit or miss, (yet they offer one of my favorite chips and salsas out there). Value is decent for both food and drink and I am happy to say that I am a regular here!

Located in downtown Winston-Salem, not far from City Beverage. I didnít see a parking lot but I had no trouble finding a spot on the street a block away. Big interior with high ceilings and lot of exposed brick with a large bar in the back along the left side. They had 8-10 on tap with a couple that were unique to the bar. Nothing was extraordinary or outstanding on my visit but it was solid. I might go back if in the area.

Prime location in downtown Winston-Salem, though there is nothing else to do in the town. Inside is a cavernous, dark wood interior. Large tables. Laminated, large plate menu with upgraded Applebeeís style kitchen. House beers on draft only. They have above average beers, and famous for their Sexual Chocolate imperial stout, which is actually not very good and not worth waiting in line for. Have been to Pre-Sex and Sexual Chocolate release in 2009 and 2010. Fun times with the RateBeer/BeerAdvocate crew late at night and then in line the next day at 5am. The main problem is the amount of people that skip in line. As only the first 200 people get beer, we arrived as 80th in line at 5am, and by the time they handed out wristbands, we were 175th in line, which is absolutely insane. Service is decent, beers are pretty good. But overall the event is not worth the trek to this isolated city. Might be worth a stop in while driving through to Asheville or something, but do not plan a trip here simply for Sexual Chocolate or their other beers. That beer is not even in the Top 100 FOR STYLE.

What a cool place. We walked in and said that we were from out of town. They gave us a tour and poured us a sample flight of every beer on draft! The bartender (canít remember his name, guy with a ponytail) was cool as hell. Also met one of the assistant brewers and he sent us home with a free growler. We planned on stopping for an hour and ended up staying for almost 3. Such a cool place with cool people. A canít miss stop in the area.

originally visited in 2012. big space. good variety of house beers on tap. all were above average, especially the IPAs. Food was quite good and served quickly. Very friendly service. revisited in 2015, and felt like itís gone downhill a bit. service was average, and just seemed far more average.

I made the trek down to Foothills Brewing Company with a few friends this weekend for the 2011 Sexual Chocolate release. People were allowed to begin entering the brewery at approximately 8:00am, but the line of several hundred people took an inordinate amount of time to move inside, as there was but one individual at the door checking IDs and applying wristbands. I find this lack of foresight highly inefficient and particularly annoying, as I had been waiting outside for several hours in freezing weather. The atmosphere inside is quite nice, with high ceilings, two levels, ample bar and table seating, and large windows. The vibe was good, and the staff was quite friendly, though they must have been exhausted. The kitchen was pretty inconsistent. It took a few of my table mates nearly an hour to receive their lunch, despite ordering after peak hours. I, in turn, received my lunch in less than ten minutes of ordering. The kitchen staff burned a simple appetizer the night before, but the dish was promptly replaced. It was a nice treat to enjoy some vintage drafts of Sexual Chocolate the night before the release. Also, it is extremely cool of Foothills to permit customers to bring in their own beers to this event, allowing for a huge tasting the night before and day of the event. Overall, this is a quality establishment brewing quality beer. Recommended.

Great brewpub. Excellent service. Great quality food that pairs well with their fantastic brews. A Pilot Mtn Pale Ale with a Bison burger/fries is one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

Had 10 samplers, creat session beers all of them, very drinkable. Staff is just so great, had †10 samplers on the house, unbeliavable what a great hospitality. Great athmosphere, great staff, few screens to watch European Soccer Championship on. Did not eat, but ehat I could see from othersí plates it looks really good.. Iíll highly recommend this place for anyone around.

Iíve been here more times than I can count. Always have a great lineup of fresh beer. Food is above average, and the service is always friendly and prompt. They handle their special-releases very well. One of my favorite beer-stops.

Went during a wake forest / notre dame game. Probably the most retarded waitress Iíve ever had. Messed everything up but not a big deal. Beers were average, prices good.
