“My first place rate in a long time. Hard to rate a place during a pandemic but I was here and found this place to be quite decent. Not much happening on a Saturday night in Evansville, except for this place and the casino down the street. Smallish tap room with 12 of their beers on tap. No food but they did have 2 food trucks outside and the lines were long. The one beer I had was decent and only 5 bucks a pour. For the young hip crowd in Evansville, this must be the place to go.“

“Nice place downtown - large bar with numerous tables. 12 beers on tap - a couple of guest beers plus BMC beers available. Street parking with a garage nearby - probably not hard to find parking unless there is something going on downtown (like when I went). Pleasant place.“

“On the west side of town (very close to the Gerst Haus). Nice size restaurant and bar with patio. Nice selection of their beers with a few guest taps - Crowlers available. Open for brunch on the weekend. Parking lot available but also quite a bit of street parking. A great place.“

“On the edge of a business district. Tons of taps, a mix of Indiana/local and German/European. Pretty good food. A mix of new and old school.“

“Right in the town centre, this place has an old school feel to it. Flights of all 6 beers available for a very cheap $4, but the beers are all so bad that it didn’t even feel like a deal. Had a vegan pizza as well (thank you for offering that!), but ended up getting charged extra despite poor wording on the menu. Don’t bother with this place.“

“A bit out of the town centre, but closer to the main highway. Tons of beers on tap, available in custom flights, priced per beer (and quite cheap). Service was very friendly and generous with additional free samples. Unfortunately, most of the beer was odd in some way or just bizarrely bad. Due to this, hard to recommend it.“

“Small bar with a few tables. 5 of their own beers on tap with a few guest taps. Nice laid back place.“

“Looks like the craft beer section has vastly expanded since late 2016. Great, nerdy beer geek library feel to it. 3 doors of cold bombers and singles with another 4-sided rack of singles available. Great selection of bombers (domestic and import). Prices seemed pretty reasonable. Again not sure if any single beer can be broken out of 6-pack (I’m assuming no). If this place let’s you pull singles, then it would be the best in the region for sure and I’ll adjust my rating. Still the best spot in Evansville for bottles. Also check their facebook page for monthly beer tastings.“

Varsity Liquors (Beer Store)
687 N GREEN RIVER ROAD
“Big spacious space with a very clean and minimalist feel. Everything was neatly arranged. Craft beer selection was pretty good, but only 2 doors of singles. There were a good amount of 6 packs I wanted to try, but didn’t look like you could break up 6 packs to try things. Pretty good selection of Indiana beers, prices were OK I thought. Not bad. Compared to other places in Owensboro or Evansville amount of craft beer was a touch below average.“

“Doesn’t look like much on the exterior, but once you’re inside they’ve got a nice selection. 3 Floyds, Hoppin Frog, Mikkeller, and Struise to name a few. Friendly staff. I left with 6 or 7 bottles. Glad I made the stop.“

“Not terribly different from the other LL I visited in the western part of the city, but this store seemed run down. Service was not craft beer focused. Decent selection with 3 Floyds being the biggest draw. Unfortunately not many other craft beer options in Evansville.“

“Across the street from the hotel, so stopped in. Selection was solid with quite a bit of 3 floyds and I got a long time want, so that was cool. Service was friendly and chatty.“

Gerst Bavarian Haus (Restaurant)

“A nice German restaurant with a solid beer list and I finally got to try Bell’s Wild One here, which was a nice surprise. They had 2 pre-defined flights, but would not allow create your own flights. The food was good, but I was hoping for better. Prices were reasonable and the service was fine though I assume more knowledgeable at the bar while I was in the restaurant part of the building.“

“Located next several retail businesses in a busy area off the Expy. Several cooler doors of craft, quite a few which were singles and bombers. They also had some warm bombers on a small stand. Among the better/best selection for make-your-own-six-packs I’ve seen, pretty good bottle shop all around.“

“Off the Expy on a side road near the college campus. Several cooler doors of craft with 2 for singles. Two shelves of bombers. Good amount of local beers mixed in. Good bottle shop, definitely seems like it serves the local college well.“

“Nice place with a separate bar area where you must be 21 to enter. TV’s on in the bar area. Visitors WIFI. Parking was a chore we arrived right at lunch. Which indicates it is a good place to eat. Beer selection is ok. They were out of one beer on there list. That is always a downer for me. The beers were all solid in my opinion and pretty much on style. All were clean and good. You should stop by if you are in the area. I will“

“In an industrial area of town. Bar and tables including outdoor seating (but no shade available). No food - can either bring your own or check beforehand if there will be a food truck there (wasn’t any there on my visit but was there early - don’t know what kind of food delivery options are available but wouldn’t count on anything other than pizza). Nice selection of beers with bullet sales along with the growlers (you can get fills using other breweries’ growlers too so you don’t have to buy a new one). Not bad - convenient location and decent beers.“

“Stopped for a night in Evansville and this place seemed popular and well reviewed on Yelp. Ordered their IPA and shared a appetizer and small pizza with my wife. Food and beer were pretty good, good service too. Small town feel to the place. Left with a pint glass of their goofy logo. No regret checking this place out.“

“Beautiful looking store since they’ve remodeled. I was greeted with a friendly young gentleman that helped me find what I was looking for. They have 6 packs galore, but their single selection is lacking. I was also suprised to hear that they’ll do special orders on anything that’s available in Indiana. Overall, this is a place I plan on shopping often.“

“Depending on which location you are at makes it different as far as selection. You might be able to find a lot of FFF at one location and only a few at another. Pretty good as far as selection, the make your own six pack selection was pretty good. Good store, although it did seem there was a lot of space that could have been used for more products.“

“Food and value get high marks, service can be hit or miss as it can be anywhere....the selection is where the marks are lower, but understandably so. Their in-house brews are mostly outstanding and I see why they would want you to focus on those.“

“Solid beer and pizza. Some say it’s the best pizza in the state but I don’t think that’s really the case. Regardless, I wish they placed more emphasis on the beer and had more variety/seasonals. About the only brewery in the area and well worth a visit.“

“It’s great that Evansville has a brew pub! Not much in the way of Ambiance here. Movie posters on the wall, old timey advertisements. I’m not a fan of St.Louis style pizza, but if you are you will like the pie just fine. The beer is ok. Vinny’s lager taste like it could come from a can. The smoked porter is as advertised. Smokey malt and light hops. The IPA is nice, but lacks any complexity. The brews are all decent , but not amazing. If you find yourself in the Evansville area you should check it out.“
