“Near the WLW radio tower. plenty of parking though I walked there from the Kitty Brew Café. Open space and loud even though there were only like 10 guests as we walked in. Giant shuffle board table. Has food: pizza. knowledgeable staff: brewer was behind bar at time to answer questions. does flights. has wifi. kids would like it for the games, maybe not the darts. I found it lacked character. Beer was decent.“

“Visited for dinner on a Monday. I have actually eaten here several times, and decided to add. They do a good job of rotating local beers, with a really detailed menu that is always up to date. Everytime I have visited, they have had something new and interesting from the likes of Listerman, Taft, etc. Service is restaurant efficient, food is tasty - wood fired pizza is above average. If you are staying in the area (many hotels within walking distance), this a great option for food and beer.

70 = **½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.“

“A little too commercial looking for me, feels like a suburb place. However, they offer flights at a good price and they had a few very good beers. I'd come back.“

“Visited after dinner on a Monday. The place had opened three days previous, so certainly still early days. The brewery is located in an office park area and the building is quite large, with a huge parking lot and a large outdoor heated biergarten. The interior is bright and shiny with a giant bar, and long tables throughout. Truly built to handle large crowds. Design is pretty bare bones at this point, and I am sure they will soften the noise and decor over time. Food is available from a Brew River stall. Beer selection is 7 house beers and 1 house cider. Available as full pours, or 4 oz tasters. 32 oz crowlers available to go. Service was efficient, and very prompt. Good crowd hanging out watching Monday Night Football, I had a good time and am sure I will be back.

“Visited after dinner on a Wednesday. Located in a strip mall sort of place. Interior is big and open with a tons of seating at the bar, tables and on the outdoor front patio. Selection was 12 house beers +1 cider. House beers were a variety of styles, though nothing too crazy. Happy, lively, local crowd was there for Trivia Night. Mad monks pizza located inside, order separately. They have a nice shuffleboard table. Overall, fun place to visit with a great vibe.

“Locals hangout with what I was told by a bar regular as having "the best draft selection around". Good selection of local and regional offerings that are rotated constantly and updated on their website via taphunter. The bar manager had an obvious passion/knowledge for good beer and freely handed out large samples without asking. I was disappointed during my visit that Zombie Dust had kicked 20 minutes prior to my arrival as it was the sole reason for going. I could see it being a regular stop if I lived locally.“

“Visited on a Sunday afternoon, on my way out of town. This location’s selection had a nice melange of local (Ohio and the surrounding area) beers, along with cool stuff from sought after breweries from around the country and Europe. Prices were very good in comparison with retailers in Pennsylvania, and about on par with what you would expect in other beer stores in Ohio. The staff was extremely friendly, and offered to help in procuring selections. Overall, a very enjoyable experience, and worth stopping into when in the area and in need of excellent craft beer.“

“I agree with T-Money. Decent selection, but too many macros and too pricey.“

“Tmoney99, is right on with his review. I don’t have anything exceptional to add except: this place is so heavily patrolled by Mason officers of the law that it makes it no fun to have more than one beer in this place. Serious anxiety issues if you have ever been to this place and looked out in the parking lot with all the cops swarming about waiting for you to leave. Besides this little problem, great place for food and beverage. Go Tuesday night for cheap beverages!“

“This has to be the smallest Whole Foods I have been in. For a store this size they have a decent beer selection that is all in one cooler area. What they lack in size they make up for in quality. Picked up 5 bombers of local brews all for around $5. They even had a 3L of Double Arrogant Bastard(I think, could have been regular AB) and 3L of the Blue Chimay which was pretty cool I guess. Had some singles as well. Worth a stop if in the area.“

“Located directly off main road with good parking lot. New wood and stone location with patio in left front. Center bar with 5 flat screen and six tv’s on the side. Freindly service with good knowledge of selections. $2.50 pint night on Tuesday on all draft selections. Corporate apps and menu with standard apps that are of good size. Nice upscale place to have a brew.“

“Pretty good selection for a grocery store. You won’t find any of the fringe high end micros like Alesmith but you’ll see a few 3Fs and all of the old standbys. In the absence of a true beer-geek store this place suffices. I used to stop here frequently on my way home because you aren’t going to find Arrogant Bastard or Stone Ruination at Kroger.“
