Well designed brewpub, there is adequete seating and an upstairs and downstairs bar. Wednesday night was slow with the majority of the customers eating outside. On Saturday night, the place was nearly full, and we sat upstairs with the foosball and jukebox. The brewery equipment is visible at the end of the building, and there is a large patio facing the rail road track.. The two beers I wanted to try most were both out when we arrived (seasonal/stout) on Wednesday. The seasonal was available on Saturday and was delicious. Overall, my friend and I managed to try five total brews (Amber, Pale Ale, Nut Brown, Golden, Seasonal). They sell pints for $3 and domestic bottles for $3, so the choice was easy for us! They do have several (5 - 7) macro taps ranging from Red Oak to Hoegaarden. We did not order any food so I cannot comment on that, although the menu was impressive and made me want to return. Tthis is a good brewpub and I will return when in Greensboro again.
Over all an OK place to visit. The building is interesting enough but definitely has a college bar vibe to it. The service was so-so. It took a while to get our beer. Not good for a brewery. The food was average at best, and a little pricey for what it was. The restrooms were not very clean and smelled bad. Not some place I would seek out again.
Looks like it has been around for a hundred years due to painting techniques. It does feel like a touristy place, but at the same time it clearly caters to the locals. Seems like it would be a fun hang out.
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.
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.
Great combo of a brew pub and a sports bar at the upper floor. Kerping the good brew pub athmosphere yet having few, not too many screens. Great beers, 1,5 dollar samplers, food is fantastic and the staff just made our day. Highly recommended.
