This is a nice place on 50 W (hence the name). Comfortable environment with outstanding staff and a nice, rotating selection. Iím expecting big things from this place as they grow and expand.

Visited later evening on a Wednesday. Easy to find right off the highway, across from the new Fifty West production brewery. Big old white building with a big parking lot. As you walk from the parking lot to the entrance, there is a nice outdoor seating area. Two sections of the building, the dining room to the left, and the bar to the right. I visited the bar. Big long bar, with high tops scattered around the bar. There was also a slightly sunken area with tables. Overall, a broken in country pub feel to the place, which I really liked. Super friendly service. 25 house beers on, with more or less all of the beers from across the street plus a few more. Good vibe, interesting contrast to the new place. Both are well worth visiting.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

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

An odd converted building with tons of space and a huge parking lot. Bar area is cozy. Service was fantastic and genuinely passionate about beer. Lots of beer and flights were available, dirt cheap on days with promotion. We didnít eat but the menu looked good. Beer was OK but a little lackluster compared to what I have had from them in bottles.

Went on a Tuesday evening, not too busy. Quick service, decent selection, ample seating. Picnic tables indoors next to brewing equipment. Was a rainy day but I could see how the place could be swamped on a nice day with the volleyball courts and outdoor patio.

Came here for a few brews after work and prior to going back to my temporary abode. Place is an old house (Hammerstone I have a business idea) turned brew pub. Decent sized bar and seating area to the right, more seating to the left. Super chill vibe. Large taps list of their own and some other guest taps. Prices somewhat high but what ever. Taps were Nothing too wild or crazy save a BB Barley Wine. Any ways, chill place.

stopped in around noon today and the place was bustling. very busy to be exact. sat at the bar. observations there is an outdoor area with several tables that were full, you had the bar are with 5 tables I believe and then another room. the 10 barrel system I believe he said was off to the back area. tried a sampler 6 three ounce beers for $5 great deal. all 6 samples were very good and I really liked the porter had enough smoke in it to make me happy. my friend tried the biscuit and gravy and said it was outstanding. old rustic wood interior with a cooper topped bar. the bartender brian was quite busy but attentive and answered questions like he owned the place. overall I would head back there in a heartbeat great place.

Cool taproom in what feels like an old German restaurant. 6 beers (3 ounces each) for $5 is one of the best sampler deals Iíve seen. Didnít try the food, but Iíve heard good things. Must stop.

Itís a cozy and comforting brewpub with a lodge-like feel to it. The waiter was friendly, welcoming, encouraging, and knowledgeable about the beer. The had an abundant selection of their brews available - roughly 18 taps of their own brews as I recall. They only offered fixed flights; although our server mentioned we could swap out a couple if we really wanted. The food was tasty too, very hearty, and not overly reliant on salt, oil, or fat. We arrived just at the front end of the dinner hour and it was nearly empty on a Wednesday, but business ramped up pretty quickly to fill the bar area (nice playlist too!). Definitely a good brew and grub stop.

Stopping here on the recommendation of many locals, I discovered a nice local which might deserve future visits if it were not so far from downtown. Tucked away a few miles from the interstate, Fifty West looks more like a bed and breakfast than a brewpub from the outside. Once you walk in and see the extensive beer list your assumptions will change.

Arriving fairly soon after it opened the place was quiet. If you sit up in the bar area the noise from the televisions might make talking difficult. Off the side the ambiance makes it possible to have conversations despite the cramped arrangement of some of the tables.

The beer list covers a variety of styles. On Sundays flights of six beers are half price which makes it an excellent time to come if you just want to tick 12 to 15 new rates. Unfortunately most of the beers are average at best. I did not get an opportunity to try any special releases - maybe those are better than the regular IPAs, Belgians, and stouts. At $5.00 for six 3.5 ounce samples though I did not feel too cheated.

The food menu is limited but not your typical brewpub fare. An upscale menu attempts to differentiate itself but stumbles a bit. The pancakes, while visually appealing, lacked much flavor and the toast underneath the eggs benedict was slightly overdone. I would go back again with tempered expectations.

If Dillyís had been open this would make a nice loop along with Dutchís and a couple of other spots northeast of downtown. I would not recommend going out of your way to visit though - with other options such as Rhinegeist, Mad Tree, and Ei8ht Ball to choose from this slips to the second tier of "must visit" places.

Unique looking building, doesnít look like a brewery, easy to drive by. Much smaller inside that it looks from outside. Clean new decor, a couple of tvs. They have about 15-18 beers on tap plus a couple of their bottled beers. They do samples, kegs and growlers. Nice spot to come by if youíre a ticker because they do 3.5 ounce sample pours, you wonít get wasted. Service was nice but overly helpful or descriptive of the beer. They had a stand out session, a couple good dipas and a great cask stout. Most beers were drinkable. This is a cool spot worth checking out.
