Visited recently on Thursday evening about 9:00 pm. Nice selection of beers, still fairly busy, nice mix of people. Our waitress was very pleasant but she "lost" our food order and it was never put in and also forgot the water we requested. She said the kitchen was not busy so food would be right out. I had the fish... More

Brewer's Coalition is a low key place to grab lunch or dinner (or brunch on Sundays). At all times the place has different groups of people: singles, couples, and families, and all are welcome. There are plenty of drink options - beers and cocktails. There are lots of bar seats with tv views if you are coming to watch a... More

Excellent burgers and food with prompt service. Fish tacos are especially good. Many beer and drink options. Very large portions.

I visited recently with some friends for a beer. As a Gluten-free person, I didn't expect a whole lot given that it's a beer restaurant. However, I was first impressed that there were many G-F choices (I went for the Cubano - awesome) and the food was really, really good. My friends found excellent beer choices and were very impressed... More

Excellent bartender, extensive selection of beers, interesting and delicious food choices for casual dining. The menu works for both carnivores and non meat eaters. Service is attentive. Can be a bit noisy, but that's just because others recognize the value of good affordable food, too! Did I mention that the bartenders are excellent?

Solid place to get a brew, they sell four small samples of their on-tap offerings got $9 so you can try small quantities before buying a pint. Probably the best beer selection in town, though there isn't a huge amount of competition at the moment. Good food, the chicken pot pie was served with buttery, flaky pastry on top and... More

We had to run some errands and just wanted a quick lunch and a drink. My husband is always interested in trying new beers and prefer sparkling cider. We both appreciated the waiter's recommendations. Husband had a burger which he enjoyed, and I had the chicken lettuce wraps which were a generous portion and tasty. Appreciated the decor - nice... More

Here forlunch with a local friend, who recommended it. We both had the $5 hamburgers, which were full-size and very good, and obviously a good value. (As I looked around, it appeared that about 90% of the customers also were having the burgers.) I subbed onion rings for fries (upcharge); they were ok, but a bit heavy and un-crisp. Service...

My wife and I decided to try this for an early dinner. They started out on the wrong foot. We asked for one of the two empty booths and were refused, even though at the time there was only one other table in use besides the bar. We were there for an hour and no one sat at the two... More
