Saturday afternoon passing through Kansas. Huge interior, lots of wood. Service was friendly and efficient. Had 7 or so of their beers on tap. I had the gumbo, which was quite good.

Very nice looking place, crowded, friendly people, could have used more brewery exclusive taps. Value was great.

Free State is in a old renovated storefront location, with a small bar & the kitchen on the ground floor and most of the seating on the second floor (I didn’t check it out). I thought the selection was pretty good. I got a flight ($1.85/sample, 4-5 in a flight) son I could sample a few and I liked the Octoberfest and the Garden Party (very herby and vegetal) the best, though the seasonal watermelon tart was interesting. This is a family friendly brew pub with free balloons for the kids and a lot of to go orders for the locals. The ladies room was in pretty good condition.

Located on Massachusetts street which seems to be the main drag in Lawrence. We couldn’t find street parking so we ended up in a garage next to the public library which only a couple of blocks away and was ridiculously cheap. It’s nice old Building with a small bar on the first floor and most of the floor space on the second. They had 14-16 on tap and the prices were very reasonable. I thought the IPA’s were the highlights. The food was solid and again very reasobably priced. The place was fairly well packed on Saturday night so the bar staff really had to hustle to keep up with all the orders. It was better than I was expecting.

Nice place within close walking distance of the riverfront. Has a sort of patio that was covered up with smokers on my two visits, so I went right on inside. First floor, front area has a small bar area and is noisy as hell with lots of acoustical problems, since the place seems to be always crowded. But if you want to explore further (and sit at a table where you will be constantly harangued about ordering food) the place is kind of a labyrinth with multi-levels spreading to the back and gets less noisy. The service was good and efficient, if hurried and undistinguished on my two visits. I was with a party of four on two different nights and we ordered different appetizers and entrees. They were all good and cheap, but not worth seeking out if you have another food destination in mind. The beers were above average and that’s really the best reason to go here. Value is awesome with $4 pints and half pour and samples also available at great prices.

Been here numbers of times. Great place to visit. Food has always been really good. Beer is also very good to great and they do nice flights of their stuff. Can get a little crowded, but worth a visit if you are anywhere within about 75 miles or so.

We have dinner here just about every week. Service is generally terrific, can always find something to suit what I’m hungry for. I almost never drink the flagships when I’m there, always go with the small batch brews.

On a hot day...in a cool town...a welcoming respite from our travels from KC to OKC. The venue is special...sat upstairs with a nice view down onto the bar. Would have liked to have sat outside...but even in the shade...like I said...hot day!. The beers were very good...tried all of them. They brought us 13 different ones...only problem...they mixed them all up...which was particularly annoying given a few were only slight variations of others. After pointing that out...they gave us a whole new set of 13...now that’s the right way to do things! My favorite was the Cloud Hopper Imperial IPA. The food was very good and I highly recommend having a meal with their beers. This place is a must visit when passing anywhere near Lawrence, KS.

Been here a few times now and have never been disappointed. You can sample all their beers in ~5oz pours for a decent price. They often have beer specials for cheap. Their food is excellent. I normally have their special, because they try some interesting dishes. Great place!

Very nice brewpub we visited years ago in Lawrence on a sweltering day. Great food. Good service. Walking distance from hotel we stayed at.
