We have dinner here just about every week. Service is generally terrific, can always find something to suit what Iím hungry for. I almost never drink the flagships when Iím there, always go with the small batch brews.

On a hot a cool town...a welcoming respite from our travels from KC to OKC. The venue is special...sat upstairs with a nice view down onto the bar. Would have liked to have sat outside...but even in the I day!. The beers were very good...tried all of them. They brought us 13 different ones...only problem...they mixed them all up...which was particularly annoying given a few were only slight variations of others. After pointing that out...they gave us a whole new set of thatís the right way to do things! My favorite was the Cloud Hopper Imperial IPA. The food was very good and I highly recommend having a meal with their beers. This place is a must visit when passing anywhere near Lawrence, KS.

Been here a few times now and have never been disappointed. You can sample all their beers in ~5oz pours for a decent price. They often have beer specials for cheap. Their food is excellent. I normally have their special, because they try some interesting dishes. Great place!

Very nice brewpub we visited years ago in Lawrence on a sweltering day. Great food. Good service. Walking distance from hotel we stayed at.

One of my favorite brewpub! Small bar that you have to kind of fight to get a seat at and a few rooms with dining seating. A really nice selection of beers on tap and available for growlers. Food is quite delicious and well priced. This is a must stop if you are anywhere near by!

Perhaps not the largest selection and was only able to sample a couple of beers, but really enjoyed the atmosphere. Old guys like myself looking thlike they were regulars having a great time and families out for dinner and a beer and college types coming in from playing hard for the relief of a beer. My server was on her last day and her mistake of giving me the wrong beer meant it was comped and that I got the beer I ordered in the end. And the meal my daughter and I got = both pretty darn good

Free State is has enjoyable but very typical restaurant/brewpub ambiance. They were slammed on a Monday afternoon, strangely enough. They had about 10 different taps available in pints and 10 oz. pours. I tried an IPA and their hoppy amber and both were fair. Free State was a good place to unwind for a minute, but I wasnít thrilled with it like some of the breweries we visited the previous day in St. Louis.

Large, college town brewpub. Drab, outdated interior. A maze of seating rooms. Outdated menu and plating with average to disappointing food. Server was quirky, but quite attentive. A bit awkward to chat with. Many house beers on tap with okay variety. Beer quality though was average. Overall disappointing. Very cheap flights served in skinny flutes. I canít say this is a brewpub I would go out of my way for. All of their top rated beers have been a major letdown so I think Iím giving up on this brewery.

Nice brewpub located in a college town. Seems to be always busy. Very popular with locals for sure. Excellent beers and good food. Have never been able to sample Owd Macís. One of these days I will get lucky!

Saturday afternoon passing through Kansas. Huge interior, lots of wood. Service was friendly and efficient. Had 7 or so of their beers on tap. I had the gumbo, which was quite good.
