I guess I should have expected this to be a "backyard" bar being in Auburn. Had my beer served in a plastic cup, since Alabama law requires beer sold after midnight I believe to be in a plastic cup. Their IPA was good, and I was impressed to see more of an older crowd instead of the college crowd, even though I was in town for the Auburn/Tennessee game. If you're ever in Auburn, it's worth checking out.

I liked it. Good burgers. Auburn is a great town. Small town joints like this one is what makes places like Auburn awesome.

this place is now called the Strutting Duck. The brewery separated so it could distribute the beer it makes. Under Alabama law, it could either sell on premise, or distribute, not both.
we had a new waitress, so service was hurting. Food was pretty good. I had the Hart Starter hamburger, spicy burger, only $6 (fries extra though, but thatís what beer is good for, eh)! Beers ranged from $4 on up to some in the $8 range, but many on tap.
Choice of beers was pretty good, not as good as the Wild Mushroom, but probably more exotic beers on tap vs. expensive bottles at the íshroom.
Ambience looks great! college bar, with stage, the place prob. gets crazy on Friday and Sat night.

Worth a trip if you happen to be stuck in AL for a bit. Auburn is a fun college town and this is the best beer place I have found in AL; #1 of 2 which doesnít say much, but its not bad. There was a decent varity on tap and an interesting folk band playing which is more than others places in Montgomery had going.

The atmosphere had the college town feel one would expect from a college town. In fact, I was one of only two people not wearing either a tiger tail or orange shirt. Bricks walls, wooden booths and tables, several tvís, and a bar that seats around 10-12. The small lobby area is cleverly decorated with beers currently unavailable in Alabama due to the 6% abv cap. The beer selection consisted of eight beers, with the Team Porter coming away as the winner for me. Beer prices were very reasonable and ranged between $2.25 and $3.25. Expecting typical bar food, I was pleasantly surprised to see everything from filet mignon to grilled stuffed pork chops to crawfish etoufee (as well as the typical bar food). Me, I opted for the shrimp & grits topped with a spicy tasso ham gravy that paired nicely with both the Plainsman IPA and the HopDragon IPA. Overall, the Olde Auburn Ale House is a fine place to stop in for a beer and an establishment I fully recommend.

I think this place has undergone many changes since its inception. I like the idea of having a brewpub under a parking deck. The selection is varied and pretty decent, especially the IPA. Unlike others, I actually liked their food, too.

Has a nice college bar/sports bar ambiance. The waitress/bartender was very good and had the personality to match. Had 7 house taps plus 1 other. A few bottles to handle the BMC crowd.

Kinda grubby and off-the-path. It ainít on Tichenor Ave, itís on the alley behind Tichenor. I had to have major mapping and cell phone assistance to find the place. The beer wasnít stellar. Hard to speak to the service -- I got there at 3:30 in the afternoon when they were just opening up and I was the only guy in the place. Bar was subterranean and dank. Have to give this a shot some evening, but the beer didnít have me itching to come back.

Great service, great food, beer is not very good. You certainly appreciate the effort, it seems the brewmatster really believes in his beer, but its not very good - stay with the darks. Also, it is very difficult to find.

A nice brew pub. Eclectic menu - primarily traditional southern and cajun food - a lot of dishes with crawfish. Service was phenomenal - limited beer choice when I went but still some good stuff especially given the area. Really enjoyed the place but would imagine it gets crowded as hell on weekends given the location. It is off the main street right next to the city hall parking garage (does not face Tichenor Dr - youíve got to go to the back of the building and thereís no hint that anything is back there until youíre right in front of it).
