Nice selection of there beers. You can choose the little tap room in the basement or the big upstairs bar. Both are nice and the beer is good.

paintedmaple  (63) Peopleís Republic of Bloomington, Indiana | July 25, 2015
Here on a Friday afternoon with a handful of people in eating lunch and having a beer. Fantastic view of the town square and an open airy feeling inside with lots of beer taps, bottles, and signage to engage the beer geek. Our server was very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. Beer selection is excellent with both their own brews and extensive mix of guest taps. I wasnít expecting much from the house brews and ignored them at first, but upon tasting a couple around the table my impression quickly changed. Had a Belgian Strong, Berliner Weisse, and a Hefe from the house list and all were outstanding. The food was good as well. Great place!

College bar/beer geek place downtown. Tons of beer and in two days I saw a lot change. Slowest food service in the world. Maybe one guy in the back. A bit slow overall.

Bar on the square downtown. Very nice selection of beers -tap list with many local beers. Surprised that we were able to sit right down coming in on a Saturday night (and seating was still available in the back). Incredibly noisy for the amount of people actually in the place (and this was before the live music started). Now they have their own beers, you can get a flight of any of their own beers but only full pours available for the guest beers. Not bad but will probably avoid on Friday and Saturday nights.

This is the kind of place Bloomington had been screaming for for years. Marvelous location on the square, well appointed decor, and a really nice list of beers (including bottles, though I never tucked into these as the draft list was always more than sufficient on my multiple visits). Service usually good, though occasionally a bit inattentive. Points docked for relatively high prices (not outrageous, just more than necessary for Monroe County) and for the occasionally suffering ambience (college bros, vastly too loud live music). Still and all, essential spot.

Stopped in for a beer while in town and can at least say I ticked a new beer... The atmosphere was nice, but service was disinterested, and when I asked to taste a beer, I got (and I kid you not) less than 1/4 oz (and it was a regularly distributed IPA). The selection is good and the pricing is par for the course. Itís a very disinterested corporate climate, and the only thing good about the place is the beer. UPDATE: Iíve been back several times now, and service has gotten exponentially better. As such, while Iím not going to completely discount my initial experience, Iím going to weight my experiences and increase accordingly.

ContemplateBeer  (143) Louisville, Kentucky | July 8, 2013
PROS: Very clean layout, lots of seating (lots of tables, bench seats, barstools, and additional seating in the back), great regional focus, especially with beer produced in town or within an hours drive. Good, diverse bottle selection, and generally well priced taps. Very competent service, and very friendly. Small samples were available for free before making an order decision. CONS: A little tooooooo slick in terms of ambiance and employee uniforms- reminded me of Buffalo Wild Wings/Hooters in the worst way- let those girls wear their own clothes! A little out of character for a "progressive" town. Some bottles seemed pretty high (12.5 and up for beers that might be half that in Louisville) and some taps were upwards of 10 bucks a pop. Moinette Bruin isnít that much at the most expensive bars in Louisville. 10 bucks gets you pours of Cantillon Gueuze at Holy Grale when itís there. Anyway, rant over in that respect. I suspect that (at least) one beer I was sold was in rather poor shape. Beers were only poured in one size (the appropriate glass for the beer), except for a predetermined flight. I hate predetermined flights. Charge me a couple bucks extra for my dirty glasses. I like appropriate glasses as much as the next guy, but no freedom to choose on flights? Bummer. OVERALL: Up and down for me, obviously. Iíd go back, and itís a good spot in some ways, but thereís a few easy fixes here that could make this place really great. Went in early July, so street parking was available in the area. No food, but close to some good eats; very close to Scholar House, which I found reasonable and tasty, especially with burger sales in the summer, and nice house made salads and cole slaw. Iíve only been to Bloomington twice, so I canít say much else but that Upland is definitely worth a visit for food and beer as well; my non beer-drinker wife happily eats there.

This new introduction to the Bloomington scene is a welcome addition. Unlike Yogiís, which has a great selection but questionable service, this place offers good service at a slightly higher price. The selection tends to be mostly local beers though they sometimes do tap takeovers (like Stone). Parking is fairly easy to find near the square as well. Check this place out when you are in town - just avoid big nights like home basketball games.

New beers on tap almost every day! Best total selection in town. No regular beer on tap!

tastybeer  (35) Indiana | March 8, 2013
Relatively new, entirely craft focused bar. Ambiance is modern and clean with lots, probably too many, TVs. Frequently has live music at night. Service is for the most part good; seems well staffed but can get bogged down on crowded weekend nights. Selection is excellent - lots of Midwestern standards like Bellís, Founders, Upland, Three Floyds, etc. but also a good selection of one-offs from regional breweries. No food but you can get delivery from nearby restaurants. Prices are on the higher-end for Bloomington but not unreasonable compared to any major city. If youíre looking for craft beer in Bloomington this should be your first stop.
