This place is in a large architecturally interesting building, with bars on both the ground floor and second floor (first floor if you’re from Europe). But it seemed more like a restaurant with a brewpub stuck on. Service was very attentive. Beers were varied but so-so.
Located in downtown Greensboro with inexpensive parking available in a lot across the street. The brewpub is in old, two-story brick building which adds a lot of ambience. They have a restaurant area with a bar on the ground floor as well as another bar upstairs. As you can imagine with all that brick and all that space it can get loud especially with the Saturday night crowd skewing so young give this place a bit of a colleg bar vibe. They had 10-11 things on tap that were solid as was the food. Its a solid enough place but I can’t say it warmed the cockles of my heart.
Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Bar-style food is pricy, but well better than average for your typical brewpub. Large selection of regulars and seasonals. No sampler, but the bartender did offer to let me try some, and they offer a 5 oz. (taster) for $1.50. Pints are priced well. They offer growlers to go. Cheap municipal parking across the street is 50 cents per hour or free weekends and any day after 6PM. Nice little gem of a place.
This is one of the best brewpubs in NC that I’ve ever visited. The place is spacious and wasn’t too crowded, though it was a Sunday night. The beer I had was quite good and they had a good variety of styles available. We did not plan on eating on our visit, but we ended up getting some spinach artichoke dip which was delicious. After looking at the menu for a while, we couldn’t help but order some food to go. Both of our meals were absolutely delicious. The potato salad is awesome and chicken/garlic aioli was mouthwatering. The prices are very reasonable. I’m definitely making a stop here anytime I’m in the remote area. Oh yeah, they do have the X-celerator or whatever that hand dryer is called in the restroom. Those are intense.
A strickingly superb old building on Elm Street, converted into a brewpub, with high ceiling, 2 floors, all wooden, with multiple fans on the ceiling. Beers are decent to very good. Did not try the food. Good and friendly service. Samples are availble for 1.50$ per 4 on. pours.
Cool place in downtown Greesboro. They did a nice job of renovating this old building. Pretty big place with 2 floors. They tend to have around 10-12 taps, 6-7 of which are house brews. Most of their beers are pretty decent. The seasonal offerings tend to be the best.
Went in for an early dinner and some drinks while in town on business. November 2007. 5 regular beers and 8 seasonal listed, only 6 seasonals were available. Nice, relaxed atmosphere in a cool old building. Food was good, and a good value. Service was efficient. I’d be a regular if I lived here. Beers were solid, nothing knocked me out.
Nice place, lots of tables. Surprisingly empty on a Friday night. 12 house taps. 5oz samples are $1.50. Beers were slightly above average, and food was decent.

Got there a little after the lunch rush on a thursday afternoon. Nice place, Downstairs has high ceilings, lots of wood, floors, ceiling, and brick. Dining area in front and bar is toward the back where you can see the brewery. Downstairs is non smoking. Upstairs is smoking area, I didn’t venture up there. Big windows look out side and a big mural on wall depicting old Greensboro, I assume. There is an outdoor patio, but it was raining so I didn’t venture out there. Service was good, but it’s not like the place was full at that point. We, the wife & I, both got burgers, Good burgers, so-so rolls. The home made potato chips were tasty. We go the Hummas plate as an appetizer. I liked it, though it had some curry mixed in and wife didn’t like that. I did. I had the ESB & American Rye ale. Wife got the amber. All good, the ESB darn good. Sampled the gunsmith dark munich lager which I don’t see listed here. Gotta add that. Got a growler of the Dipa & Dunkelwiezen to go. Well worth a visit if you’re in there area. I tried to go here before the Van Halen show but they had a 1 1/2 hour wait at that point, 530-600pm Saturday night, so it gets crowded at peak times.
