This place is a bright spot in the state of Mississippi and has definitely made returning visits to my hometown of Tupelo to visit family so much more enjoyable. I actually look forward to going out! Even prior to the laws changing in July, Blue Canoe offers a great selection of brews with ever changing taps and bottles. The music and atmosphere is a true gem and the food is reasonably priced and has yet to disappoint. I love that they not only support local music and craft breweries, but also local farms and food.
My only complaint is the bar service. I'm not a complainer by any means and my husband bartended us both through graduate school and has 10+years behind a bar (I've put in my time in the restaurant biz as well). So, I'm genuine in my thoughts here. It's without fail that the bartenders are not very friendly and extremely, noticeably slow! It's very disappointing! Not to mention, the revenue loss by their pace and inefficiency.

Best beer selection within 100 miles, period. Add in the food and the music, and you have one helluva watering hole !!! The food is southern with a twist. Fried black eyed peas app, Sausage sloppy joes, etc.. The music is EPIC. No other location in the area offers their selection. The beer selection is great. He's keep the selection up to date. No stale beer faces here. Try the Hazelnut Rogue. YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE ONE. This place is a MUST STOP !!! I LOVE THE BLUE CANOE. I LOVE THE BLUE CANOE. I LOVE THE BLUE CANOE !!!

Before I start, lets just make clear that this bar is situated in Tupelo MS, crippled by ancient beer laws. Keep that in mind when you judge the selection and you will be impressed. The taps selection changes very regularly and steers away from bmc products. Bottle selection stays fresh and updated including Rogue bombers at a great price.
Food's great, interesting list of sandwiches, I've yet to try anything there I don't like. The bartenders are extremely friendly and if it's on tap, you can always sample the brew before you order it. There's a nice covered patio out back, bands playing 3-4 nights a week and there's been a few cask tastings so far.
By far the best bar within 50miles of Tupelo!
