Went to cíville to see Monticello and wanted to lunch before going up the hill.... Found South Street here on rate beer. Frankly I was a little worried after reading the reviews. Tried 4 beers and all were excellent. Iím a hop head and my wife loves saisons. the Fruit Lups hoppy saison rocked!!! They had a $10 lunch pick 2 deal. Also excellent.... Go there!

First time for lunch. Nice! Amanda greeted us and I had a beer waiting for me at the table. Great service. The fish taco was good. The purchase by Blue Mountain was an excellent decision. The South Street beers for distribution will be produced at the barrel house near Lovingston,. This should help keep brewery at capacity. Great layout with large bar and a large fireplace as you enter. The Virginia Lager is in the Richmond market and Barhopper (IPA) will be coming soon.

Great selection of microbrews. The Satanís Pony is always a solid choice. Canít really go wrong with any of the beers.

New review after the renovation. Old review follows below. Just purchased by Blue Mountain, this place was closed for a few months and re-opened with a new line of beers and a new atmosphere. I visited opening night and it was crowded, despite that I got good service. The layout is the same, and some major features were preserved including the large central fire-place and the bar back. New long bar identical to the old one in shape, atmosphere widened and booths have all been converted to tables. All in all, the combination of old and new feels comfortable. Parking is obviously the same. The lot across the street is free after 6 or so, but it can get tricky as it serves for parking for all of downtown. I usually have no problem. 12 taps now, serving new recipes as well as old. Old recipes might be tweaked or changed significantly. Beers were old solid and the two old recipes I tried were improvements over the old recipes. Full pours are 4.50 to 5 and six beer flights are 5. The flights are set but I was able to substitute two beers with no problem. The hours are much better than the old place, 11AM-1AM. Good, cheap beer in a good atmosphere, I will be here a lot.



Nice atmosphere though it can get really crowded at times. It doesnít open until 4 or 5, which sucks when a bunch of us get off of work at 3:30 and want a pint or two. On site brews range from bland and boring to excellent. Iíve only had the tostada, but it was excellent. Sampler for $6. Parking gets crowded, but there is a pay lot directly across the street that is 50 cents an hour or free after 6PM. 4/7/12/7/7/14/74

South Street Brewery is a bit of an enigma. While none of the beers are extraordinary they also sell them during Happy Hours for prices that make even average beers a great option. Even the flights are worthwhile with the four ounce pours manageable as you work your way through the entire tap list.

When I visited the place was bustling because all taps under 7% ABV were $2.00. If Iíd had more time I may have tried the food. As it was the price for a six beer flight enabled me to try a number of their beers for about $1.50 each. Two will let you cover most of the available beers at any given time.

Donít expect anything too amazing. However as a local place to hangout I can imagine worse options. If this was my local I might swing by to get a few rates or just drink some fresh local beers every week or two. Make it a fourth or fifth option on a tour of the Charlottesville area.

This place was rocking on a Friday night before a home game, though we managed two seats at the bar. The interior is nicely done and seems to be a renovated old building, retaining some of its old charm. The bar service was very good and efficient. There were 7 or so house beers on, and the 3 I had were solid. I ate no food, but intend to stop in again and will try out the menu.

If I had to choose a "bar" (more on that later) in town, this is the one I would go to. It can get really crowded sometimes, but it is a huge space with plenty of room to spread out as long as your not near the bar area. It has comfy chairs in one part, and intimate, high-backed booths that are good for talking with friends. Not sure how to rate the selection, since they just serve their own brews, but they are good. I only ate there once and didnít expect anything from their food, but it was actually really good, and Iíve been meaning to go back. I think of it as more of a "bar" than a "restaurant that serves beer" and in that case it has better food than any "bar" in town, but I suppose that is not a fair characterization. Prices are pretty reasonable, and they have a great happy hour. These are good, strong beers (for the most part), not some cheap house brew, and I think the prices are better than average in terms of the quality. Getting a beer at the bar annoys me at any place, but if youíre sitting somewhere, a server will walk by occasionally and you can order that way.

Stopped in here for a last beer before heading back to Richmond yesterday. I remember liking the beer here more before we started exploring craft more.This place had the best ambiance of all the places we visited, nice and cozy and with a little character. The service was speedy and friendly and she seemed to know her stuff/love beer. Nice selection of their own brews. Good prices ($3.5 every day until 6:30pm) but I didnít like their brew quite as well as the other places we visited. Too full to sample the menu, but what we saw going to other tables at least looked good.
