miss the old place

first let me say that the food and beer is still good as has always been, but after moving to the new location I feel like it's lost its charm. feels like too big of a place, and not the ABC of old. maybe just nostalgia and it may grow on me over time, but sorry to say I miss... read more

This local brewery had good craft beers and good bar food. A fun night if you like a semi-rowdy atmosphere !

Been here a few times as i pass thru on business. The beer choices are really outstanding. If you have a few people in your party, try the beer sampler. The food is comfort food and pretty good

As a frequent visitor to Amherst this year, I have become a regular at ABC. It has a host of good in-house beers and a long list of featured 'guest' beers on tap that are regularly rotated.

This restaurant started to slip before relocating to the current location at the bottom of the hill. They suffered severe quality control issues, in particular the quality of beef used for their steaks and stews. Cost cutting by the ownner included downsizing the brewing staff, and lack of a proper kitchen manager. Almost everything on the menu suffered, from nachos... More

I used to go often to ABC, when it was in downtown Amherst. I love the beer there, the Honey Pilsner is my favorite! The new place is huge, but it has lost all the charm I used to find at the previous location. On the other side, now they have plenty of parking spaces, which used to be a... More

We went for an early lunch. Food, service and beer were all good. Sweet potato fries were really good, portabella mushroom sandwich was very flavorful.
