Finally got around to the Olde Auburn Ale House for lunch. There were only about 4 tables filled there, but there was only one (new) waitress and she was swamped. I ordered a philly steak and it came out reasonably quick. Best philly steak I ever had. I ordered a pint of Hemp Ale (which was somehow connected with Wildman Steve - the Local Hippie Radio Celebrity). They have several other beers that rotate out like two different IPA's, an oatmeal stout, a kolsch, a fruit beer, a dubbel. Extremely knowledgable bartender that you can geek with. Great service.

This place opened up when I was in college at Auburn. Now whenever I'm back in town I try to stop by and grab a Striper Stout (Oatmeal Stout). All of the beers are good there and they even have a root beer brewed on the premises that was excellent if you're designated driving.
My favorite dish was the shepherds pie served with a gravy made from the Striper Stout with parmesan mashed potatoes. Excellent with their coal black oatmeal stout.
The IPA was not quite as hoppy as some IPA's but that is the way I like it. The Tiger Tail was the lightest colored and flavored beer I have ever tried at a brewpub.
If you don't know what you want they offer a sampler with 4 oz servings of all their beers.

Sadly they no longer brew on premises, but they still had a great selection for such a small place. They probably had about nine taps and more selection in bottles. Great atomsphere, though a bit cramped. Lots of college kids. Great service and descent food. Very reasonable prices and a friendly atmosphere. Wish I could have tried the place when they were still brewing. The service was quick and friendly. Probably one of the better places to find a good beer in Auburn. Wasn't overly busy when we visited. Small and inviting. very comfortable atmosphere.

The atmosphere had the college town feel one would expect from a college town. In fact, I was one of only two people not wearing either a tiger tail or orange shirt. Bricks walls, wooden booths and tables, several tv's, and a bar that seats around 10-12. The small lobby area is cleverly decorated with beers currently unavailable in Alabama due to the 6% abv cap. The beer selection consisted of eight beers, with the Team Porter coming away as the winner for me. Beer prices were very reasonable and ranged between $2.25 and $3.25. Expecting typical bar food, I was pleasantly surprised to see everything from filet mignon to grilled stuffed pork chops to crawfish etoufee (as well as the typical bar food). Me, I opted for the shrimp & grits topped with a spicy tasso ham gravy that paired nicely with both the Plainsman IPA and the HopDragon IPA. Overall, the Olde Auburn Ale House is a fine place to stop in for a beer and an establishment I fully recommend.

Checked out this place with fellow BA Moocy. The place is pretty fun to hang out in, lots of beer decorations all over the place. They have a band stage set up and apparently have some playing pretty steadily. The only food I tried were the pub chips which were very good, as well as the homemade ranch I tried. I tried both the stout and the raspberry beer. The stout was very good and the raspberry was excellent. The prices aren't too steep and overall this is a great place to visit if you are ever in the Auburn area.

This is a fun, laid back college type bar. It is fun to hang out in and has a wide music variety (although this is a college town we showed up after graduation and the place was empty). The waiter was knowledgeable about the brews available and quite friendly. The food is average pub fair that is better than most bars. There are food specials several times a week also drink specials. This means you can eat and drink for not too much if you are careful.
The beer was good. I had 2 types and tried a few more. I think that they were all generally smooth, but perhaps hampered by the alcohol cap at 6% in Alabama. The head brewer took the time to talk for about 10 minutes and was happy to give me some brew tips and explain techniques.
Overall, if you are in Auburn and drink beer, this should be on your must do list and if you happen to be in the area, worth seeking out.

This place is now called the Strutting Duck. Very good selection of brews for Alabama, and good prices too. They had probably over 12 microbrews on tap, and many more in bottle. We had a new waitress, so, it was hard to rate the service. I had the Heart Starter spicy burger, only $6, and was very good! My friends seemed happy with their food and beer. The brewery separated from the restaurant industry so it could distribute under Alabama law.
The place looks like it's rocking with live bands often!

When I went to The Olde Auburn Ale House they had four beers on tap the beers ranged from average to good. The Stout is one of the better beers. The Atmosphere of this place is nicer then the price ends up being. The quality of the food is was really good and the selection of foods is also pretty good. The Olde Auburn Ale House will changer the beers ever so often with the seasonal beers. The Olde Auburn Ale House will work with groups that want to have meeting at the Brewpub. I would like to go back to this place sometime when I go back to Auburn.

Stopped in while in Auburn watching the Tigers wallop Vanderbilt. Concrete floors, lots of wood and brick. Cool looking, large bar, looked like it would seat about 15. Tables scattered about for another 50-60 folks. Some type of mug club. 3 TV's showing the different football games in progress.
Quality of the beers I tried was very good, no complaints.
Service was prompt and friendly. Samples of different beers were offered. The bartender wasn't that knowledgeable about the beers, but she understood the basic stuff, and went and got the brewer for me to talk to. Jeremy (hope I got the spelling right) was a great guy, and we spent about an hour talking beer while he gave me a tour of the brewing facility. Only complaint was the beer was served too cold, but, as others have noted, this is an easy problem to fix.
Selection was 8 house beers (Oktoberfest, hefe, kolsch, 2 IPAs, rye, raspberry, and an Irish stout). I drank or sampled most of them, with the Oktoberfest and Rye probably coming out as my favorites. There were a half dozen bottled beers as well, but all were BMC stuff.
Food ranged from $8-$22 per entree. Good variety, Irish stuff, cajun, pasta, and traditional pub fare.
Pricing was very inexpensive for the beer. $2 for most pints, with the Hop Dragon going for $3.25 during a happy hour that lasted from 3:30 to 9pm.
Overall, I had a great time, and would encourage anyone in the area to stop by.

I haven't eaten here yet, but stopped in for a try of their Hop Dragon. The place is hard to find for travelers--it faces away from the street address, making it difficult to find the first time--just aim for the parking garage behind City Hall, and it faces it. I went after Graduation at an off time, and it was empty. I picked up a nice T shirt, and had a beer that was good. They have live music at times, and I'm sure late at night during Football season it is probably packed. They have a small brewery on premise, but they brew quite a selection of beers. Their beer is worth trying if visiting for sure!
