Yellow Springs Beer Guide: Your Yellow Springs guide to beer, beer bars, breweries and brewpubs

Latest reviews from Yellow Springs

“(Visited 06/2015): Yellow Springs Brewery is located on Walnut Street near the town center. right off Fairlfield Road. There is a large gravel lot in front of the building, plus some parking on the street.

The exterior of the white building features a large garage door, and there is a patio in the rear. Inside the taproom it is cozy with some tables past the entrance and a bar along the back wall. Burnt sienna colored walls with hanging lights and a couple yellow support poles in the middle of the space. There is also a board listing the beers on tap.

There are 8-10 beers on tap at Yellow Springs, and samplers are available. On my visit the beers included some of the flagship brews plus Kerfuffle Mild, Wobbly Wheel, Amber’s Saison and Wyatt’s Eviction. The beers are all solid. They also have bottled beers such as an Anniversary beer on my visit.

Service at the bar on a busy weekend was good. The bartender was attentive and knowledgeable.

Yellow Springs does not serve food but regularly features food trucks.

All in all this is a worthwhile brewery to visit outside of Dayton.“

“Did a mini Dayton beer trip with some friends on 4/12/15 and this was the first stop. Cool place fairly easy to get to. Had a nice patio, but was a bit chilly for that. Decent selection and flights were available. Beers were okay. They don’t serve food, but they had a food truck out front serving up some tasty looking pizza.“

“Inauspicious outside, good looking, warm, friendly bar space inside. Twelve brews on tap @ $5 for flights of four. Beers are average to better than average. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable, and I was surprised at the heavy crowd at 5:00 on a Saturday. Good addition to the area.“

“We stopped in here on a Thursday night so it was decently crowded but not horribly so. They had a food truck out front to grab something bigger than the free pretzels they offer or you can bring in your own food from wherever. The space is part of a warehouse they converted into the brewery and pub. A bunch of tables and some standing bar space in addition to the proper bar. Lots of local art on the walls. A nice patio out back. The brewery itself is in a small industrial park which is also kind of Ina neighborhood near the central business district of Yellow Springs. The service was quick and friendly. I had a flight of four beers and my wife got a glass of a saison. The beers were pretty solid but nothing was outstanding. The kerfuffle mild was my favorite. A really nice place for some good beers. I’d come back.“

“In an industrial area of Hippyville, USA. Walk into an open area with exposed ceilings, and cement block walls with décor. Bar straight ahead. Seating was somewhat limited at the bar, but they do have tables and wall seats, with a patio out back. We were there on a Sat. afternoon and the place was crowded. DId find a table to accommodate our group. The only beers available were theirs, which I thought were average at best. One cool thing they did was give a tour of the brewery, albeit very small...but a good gesture. Overall, this place was ok - nothing I would go out of my way to seek.“

“A solid spot in Yellow Springs. The atmosphere is cozy but nice, and they do have an outdoor area in the back. The selection and service are both solid. No food, but they do have food trucks that come by most nights. Worth a stop if you’re in the area.“

“This place does have a plethora of wine, and a good selection of that. Beer selection is minimal but what they do have is great, and their prices are unbeatable! I stop through every time I head home from Dayton to Springfield and am not disappointed except when they sell out of my favorite!!!“

“Visited here during the Yellow Springs Street Fest in October. We got here at about 1:30 and it was already slammed, with the whole bar and every table taken. There were 7 of 8 taps going, with a few different IPAs, a saison, pumpkin ale, EPA, and mild. I got a sampler of 4 for $5, and my wife’s beer was $4.50. There is no food but they have complementary pretzels and there are bags of chips for purchase; a food truck was outside at the time, too. The atmosphere is cool, sort of industrial-modern. There is a deck in back - facing the bike trail - with a few tables. The place was well-staffed but is probably more used to a low-key vibe, but they were doing a good job with the crowd. All in all, a super cool brewery in a super cool little town. I’ll be back when the crowds are not a factor.“

“Nice little brewery location just outside downtown. You can walk here easily. It sits in an old industrial park that is tucked into a residential area. They did a great job re-nabbing the inside to make it a modern tap room. They had almost a dozen of their beers on tap and they offer a 4-taster flight for $5. No food, just bar snacks. There was a small patio area on the back too. Kids are welcome; they even have kid games and a Foosball table.“

“This is a cool old place with a bar area, dining room and outdoor patio. They have a very well thought out bottle selection and some nice beers on tap, including a local Yellow Springs beer. The food is very good pub grub, including pizzas, burgers and a really nice Reuben. This is a cool place to sit outside, have a great beer, and watch Yellow Springs walk by.“

“This is a pretty cool industrial style tap room with a comfortable bar, several tables, and even some games and a foosball table. They have six of their own beers on tap, and the beers were solid examples of the styles. I hope they are able to expand the selection but I understand they are having trouble keeping beer in the place. The taproom is next to the brewing facility in a little industrial park area not too far from downtown. Well worth the stop if you are in the area and it is not too far away from Dayton. They only have the barest of food but they do allow carry in and delivery.“

“From the bar this place has a real college bar feel. They had a bunch of taps of nice craft beer, including a tap from Yellow Springs Brewery, and a large bottle selection. I didn’t eat, but we did drink a few nice beers.“

“Everybody in Yellow Springs said this was the place to find those rare beers - they were mistaken. Maybe 50 choices of "the good stuff," but nothing I couldn’t get more easily back in Cincinnati. Ambience was good, and breakfast was good (although that has nothing to do with beer).“

“This place is interesting. It’s in Yellow Springs which is it’s own thing. The food there is pretty decent and they have a fairly big selection of food. The burger was really good. They typically have a fairly big selection of beer and will serve pitchers as well. The service is so/so, not bad, not awesome. It’s a good place to visit while you are in Yellow Springs.“

“Nice place, specialty is wine but has a small assortment of bottles but the brews there were nice.. I picked up a 2008 Bare Tree and Hop Juice. The staff there were really friendly and I got to talk beer for a few minutes. Prices were good, there were a couple of things there I had bought locally that were a little cheaper. Really nice place, I’d like to see there assortment increase when I go back next year for the street fair.“

“I just moved to South Florida from the Yellow Springs area, so I must admit that I miss Peach’s Grill pretty bad. A wonderful place to hang out during the Spring/Summer/early Fall times, to sit at the tables on the patio and people watch...and there are some wild people here. Ancient hippies, young hipsters, and yes, even a Dave Chappelle sighting now and again. (Yep, THE Dave Chappelle lives here). Good rotating selection on tap: Abita, Stone, Brew Kettle, DFH, Bells.... Food is the weakest link here--as a local once described it, Peach’s menu all "tastes like cat food!" Their onion rings are good, though. After a couple/three good drafts, though, who cares what the food tastes like?“

“Cool little joint in groovy little Yellow Springs. Our first visit was for lunch on a snowed-in Saturday, so the crowds were light. The food isn’t anything to write home about, but not bad. Peaches wins out with a cool setting in Yellow Springs, an awesome weekend lineup of live music, and a killer lineup of 20-ish quality draft beers. Definitely worth a diversion if you’re in the neighborhood.“

“A good place to get decent beer in the village of Yellow Springs if the *several other options* don’t pan out for you. Always some Bells, Avery, Stone, Great Lakes, Sierra Nevada beers and seasonal selections of large companies. If you are ever here and you don’t call me (517-914-4422) I will fucking kill you the next time I see you, no questions asked you legeing mother fucker.“

“I was in the area on business yesterday, and I’ve always wanted to check this town out, so I figured I would stop in here for a beer - considering the nature of the town, I was a bit surprised to see that it seemed like any other old midwest bar - the vibe was relaxed, though, and the bartender was attentive - the tap list was nothing to rave about (some standard imports, one or two Bells, Arrogant Bastard), but for a village pub it was nice - about half of the patrons appeared to be Antioch students (go figure) - in short, it’s a good place to get beer if you’re a local, but there is no reason to make a trip here from anywhere else.“

“For a bar in a village of 4000 people Peach’s is an excellent place to find a good beer. No bar in Dayton comes close and I can’t think of any in Cincinnati that at do either. There’s almost always at least one Bell’s on tap and usually more than one. Great Lakes is typically present as well. I’d say there is a Unibroue beer, most often Maudite or Trois Pistoles, about half the time. 20 taps total and just 3 or four are reserved from macrobrews like Bud Lite, Mich Amber Bock and Guiness. Food is standard bar fare. Update 8/4/2009. Gotta downgrade on the beer selection here. While the rest of the Dayton area has improved (or at least I’ve found some better places!) Peach’s has slipped. Bell’s is no longer guaranteed and the selection overall has become uninspired. Way too many "off season" selections. This summer it seemed there were hardly any good summer seasonals while stouts and porters were numerous.“

“How can you have an overall rating of 8 with other ratings this low? Simple. The Dayton area blows when it comes to beer bars, and Peach’s is the best. The food is awful, eat at Ha ha’s Pizza next door, and the service for someone who looks and acts normal leaves a lot to be desired. With that being said, the beer is good, if not great almost all the time.“

“The simple fact is this, they’ve got some good stuff of tap here. @ the time of my visit: Avery Hog Heaven, 3FFF RtheB and AK, Left Hand Milk Stout, Two Hearted Ale, Arrogant Bastard, Leghumper Porter and more. The service could be more friendly, but it wasn’t terrible. Didn’t have any food but what I saw and smelled made me a bit hungry. If you’re in town for some reason, stop on in.“

“Yellow Springs is a town of 3800 people and there are several great places to get beer and wine. The Emporium is one of them. Read the linked article and you’ll get a feel. This is relaxed - you can’t drink here, but there is coffee and some great little eats and a great (and getting better) beer selection. Personal connection to the new owners through my job, so biases are right up front there. Vick (the beer guy) is doing a great job. For example, he got in some new stuff today, SkilessVillian posted the news, I called and beers are in the fridge there for me for tomorrow. Excellent service in the beer department.“
