(Visited 10/2012): JAFB is located in downtown Wooster in a handsome old brick building on Beall Ave, right off Liberty. There is a small private lot adjacent to the building.
The interior is open with long wooden benches inside, and the bar in the rear. Eclectic decor including brick walls and black and white checkered flooring, plus some interesting knickknacks. There is a chalkboard behind the bar listing the available beers, and the brewery is visible through a doorway behind the bar. Tap handles are lined up along a patterned metal backsplash.
JAFB has 10 house beers on draught. On our visit this included a Smoked Porter, Farmyard Pale, Session IPA and Harvest Saison plus a few more standard styles. All of the beers are well-made.
Service on an early weekend afternoon was good. Our bartender happened to be the brewer so we were well taken care of, and he had a little fun with us on what the acronym "JAFB" is. He was clearly passionate about his beer and their presence in Wooster. One negative is they are cash only.
We did not have any food on our visit, they do not have a menu but you can order in.
Overall Wooster has long been a town we passed without stopping on trips between Columbus and Akron-Canton, but with places like Broken Rocks and JAFB now in play, we will be making pit stops regularly.

This place is really cool. Old building, about a half mile from the College of Wooster campus, and has a cool vibe. They made the tables in this place. From trees. Just check their facebook page. I spoke with one of the owners and brewer at length and I am really looking forward to what they have in store here. Did I mention the beer here is really tasty and solid? If you happen to be in the Wooster area I highly recommend stopping by. You can bring your own food or order in if you want since its a tap room. And one of the nicest I’ve been in to date.

Let me start by saying the beer here is very good, especially considering its newness. Large, open space with odd/modern art placed in every corner and on the walls. Old school floor reminds me of an old VFW or German-American bar. Big picnic-type tables are about the place, along with seating at the bar. Beer is really solid(oh, I already said that), especially for a brand new place. No food, but you can bring it in.
