I stopped in here on a road trip that included driving through Kansas as fast as possible. This place was worth the stop. It's about 15 minutes off I-70 in the old downtown of Hays. At Wednesday dinner (supper for Southerners) time the place was over halfway full.
A pint of their Oatmeal Stout was well worth the $3.50. I also had the sampler. Their Liberty Stout was very impressive. I got a growler of that, $12 or $13. The rest of their beers were avg or just above, but I am partial to stouts.
I had a Brewben (Ruben with the sauce made with ale). It came with kettle chips. It was a good sandwich. My wife and I shared the queso dip. It was really good with nice chunks of meat.
I will be stopping in again on my travels through Kansas.

Went here both on the way to Topeka and on the way home. Both times for a weekday lunch so it wasn't overcrowded. Nice tall ceilings, big open spaces. Service was really good. The first day the young gentleman that served my wife and I was spot on. Knew his stuff impeccably. His suggestions for food were so good that my wife and I split our plates. The beer was very good. Solid in their types.
Liked it so much that we took friends there on the way back through. Great place!

Great food, great beer. A must stop if you're travelling through western Kansas. They always have a wide selection of their in-house brews available, ranging from good to outstanding. The food and service is always, without fail, truly, truly outstanding.

The place stays plenty busy, being the only micro in a town with a college. This hurt the service a little but they are nice and the food and beer is killer.
I sampled a few beers and settled on one whose name I have forgotten.
There was no kitch or gimmick to the place. they rely on good food and great beer to get people back and they do it very well.

Great place and great beer, cheap too. Samplers are under 10 dollars, and you get to try 8 beers. You can even add extra samples for a mere 75 cents. We only had appetizers, but they were quite good.
The beer was pretty excellent, some better than others, one or two misses, and a few odd balls in there. (the lemonade Ale, which is super lemony, is excellent for 110 degree Kansas summers).
A great array of brews too, an excellent IPA, Pale Ale, Wheat, Hef. There stouts and browns were a little lack.
If you're in Hays, KS for a few hours it's defiantly a place to stop at.
Oh yeah, you can walk out of this place with a 64oz growler of ANY of their batches for just 14 clams. Can't argue with that, I left with 3.

Located on a small back street in a series of old renovated buildings that now makeup this establishment. Wood floors and framing as well as sunken bar area all add to the charming ambience.
Prompt service and friendly, knowledgeable barstaff. I sampled most of the house beers on tap, which was at least a dozen or so. There wasn't one that really stood out, but they were all solid brews. The numbering system they use to name the beers is kinda odd, makes them seem generic and less interesting I think.
Food was great and the selection is large and eclectic. Maybe a little too eclectic. One thing I didn't like is the inconsistency in the website and the actual brewpub. I like the place a lot, but it seems like a different place than the seemingly timely website suggests. Didn't see any beer soap. Thats about all I can complain about. Great place.

Stopped here on our way through Hays. Excellent food for a brewery. We had fish & chips that looked and tasted great. My boy had mac & cheese, which was served in a cardboard Cadillac car cutout, which was a nice touch. We also had the beerwurst, homemade chips, and onion rings.
I'd give the fish, french fries, onion rings and the beerwurst an "A". The homemade chips were a "C", not bad but not great.
Good value; not cheap, but not expensive.
I had the Oatmeal and Liberty Stouts and came away very impressed.
You may find more beers at other places; that might be the only weakness here. But the beers they do have a great, the food is excellent, and it's good value for the money.

If you're traveling through Kansas on I-70, this is a must stop!
Atmosphere- Went at about three o'clock on Memorial day, so there wasn't much of a crowd to judge how the usual atmosphere was. Seemed that besides my family, there was about three young couples all on dates. The ceilings were quite high, with huge front windows that let in a tremendous amount of natural light (big plus in my book), which made the place feel very spacious and welcoming. Tile and tables were modern looking. Overall, the atmosphere was pleasant.
Quality- Both the food and beer I had were delicious and seemed of high quality. Menu offered beer pairing suggestions, which I always appreciate seeing.
Service- When we walked into the restaurant, we were not greeted by a hostess, and there was no "seat yourself" sign; felt lost. Waitress didn't offer any beer suggestions and didn't ask us if we'd been there before (we hadn't been there before). When we asked her how long the place had been open, she shortly replied with the year they opened, instead of possibly trying to engage us in conversation about the restaurant, since we obviously wanted to know more.
However, our drinks and food were brought quickly, and the waitress and kitchen got all of our order correct. We experienced no rudeness, and the waitstaff was friendly enough, so no complaints, but not outstanding.
Selection- I thought that they had a very well thought out menu. It tends to lean towards "down home cookin", such as chicken fried chicken, meatloaf, and even fried bologna. However, they also have quite a few unexpected offerings. I got a chicken pesto pasta dish, and my parents got fish and chips. It seems that they have something for everyone, unless you are vegan or gluten free, however, you tend to not expect those types of options in a smaller town in Kansas.
Food- Was delicious. I enjoyed my chicken pesto pasta dish immensely, and my parents enjoyed their fish and chips a lot as well. We split a tiramisu, which was also very good. It was not what I'd consider a traditional tiramisu, as it had less rum flavor and a lot of raspberry flavor, but still delicious.
Value- Prices were very reasonable. It seemed as though dishes were in the 8-14 dollar range depending on what you got, with sandwiches being a little less than that possibly. They also had 14 dollar growler fills, with 9 dollar refills, which you cannot really beat.
Definitely will return the next time I'm in that neck of the woods. Hays is lucky to have such a great place for beer.
