A very nice restaurant that has a brewpub. The staff is friendly and they know about the beer they sell. They only sell the beer they make. Sometimes they’ll have a delight in a bottle if you know to ask for it, but it will be one of theirs left from a former batch. These are usually pretty good. The beers on tap are safe bets to very good. They don’t try much on the radical side, but they usually have some very good recipes on tap. Note that at the time of this rating the picture on this page is wrong (Memphis location).
Brews were excellent. Try the sampler. They will bring out 2oz. samples of all their own brews on tap. My favorite...Flaming Stone. Hot rocks were used in the fermenting process just like in the early days. Awesome.

After securing a sort of illegal street parking spot I headed in shortly after 11, dining area had already a few tables, I sat at the bar and was quickly helped to some samplers of their beers, bought a bottle and had to run. Service was good though. Looked like the other Boscos, beer was brewed on site and was about as expected. 8 beers on tap, Hook Slide Ale also served at local minor league baseball games.
Pretty chill place, even late on Friday night (unless they have an event). I couldn’t tell it was a chain, which I guess is how they like it. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, and I gave them "10" for selection since they have 8 of their beers on tap, which is pretty good for a brewpub (I usually see 4-5). The scottish ale was great, I want to go back and try some others!
First one of these I have been too, apprently there are 4 of them. Decent selection of beer - about 6-7 of their own, pretty good quality. Food was good - had the cedar plank salmon, lots of flavor. This place did have a little bit of a "chain" kind of feel, but nice overall.
I liked this place. Right in the heart of the River Market (which has a pretty small heart). The place has good food and solid beers. The had 8 of their own brews on tap when we visited it, which ranged from mediocre to solid (though they become much more solid when you compared them to what else is available in Arkansas). I’ll be back.
Nice place to hang out. Service is good if you sit at the bar. The pizza and ipa make this place worth the stop.

I visited here about two weeks ago. As usual it was very busy but I sat at the bar.
Service overall was good as I got my beers and meal in good order. The crawfish cakes were very good.
Beers: XXX-moderate bittering with little malt overtones. A good American Pale Ale
IPA-moderate head, light body, with medium hops. Smooth drinking beer.
Wee heavy-Coca Cola coloring with light head. Malty but served too cold. Turns in about 8.5%.
Batlic porter-black color, median head. Served too cold but warms up nicely. Best beer on the menu and comes in around 10%.
Overall a nice place for dinner and beers.
Update 6/09: The IPA was terrible-virtually no hops in this beer.
In a historic part of town with nice shops, overlooking the water, this a great location. Big with a big circular bar, this is setup well. Service was pretty good, but I was the only one there. Selection was their own beers which were unfortunately bad to mediocre. Food was sub par as well, but prices were good. I would give this a miss.

Great little palce. Down the street from the Flying Saucer. The pizzas that I and the girlfriend had were very decent. The 8 beers on tap (+1 cask on fridays) were all decent, but nothing special. Decently priced. Very constant service.
