This is a true BrewPub experience, from the unique Craft beers, to the wicked BBQ and smoked meats featured throughout the menu. The "Ginger Peach Saison" and "Double IPA" that I tried were excellent - distinct tasting, served ice cold and bubbly by a friendly server, who chatted with us at length. The bartender even came over to have a... More

We first went to the bar and they make all their own beers, I had a double IPA while we waited to be seated. It was good not as hop filled as I like but very good. We only had to wait about 5 min. and were seated outside at the sidewalk tables. There was a fella playing guitar and... More

While in town for business we stopped here a couple nights in a row for drinks. Great outdoor seating. Tried the flight of beers and wasn't all that wowed, but nothing terrible. Next night we went downstairs to Mash and enjoyed some better whiskeys and bourbons.

Lots of 'Firsts' on this trip. First time to Ann Arbor, first patio dining for the pups, and first time to The Blue Tractor. They could not have been nicer and the food was great. Brando - greatest server ever - seated us outside and told us about specials, and answered questions about the menu. We tried the Fried Pickle... More

Great beer. Favorites are the IPAs and the Hefeweizen. The atmosphere is casual. The interior has a reclaimed, industrial feel. Can't wait to come back.

I have been going to Blue Tractor for years and they never disappoint me. The beers that they brew on site are always interesting--some regulars and some seasonals usually make for some tasting of samples before I can choose one--the menu is largely pub food but with interesting twists and a nice selection of BBQ that they make on site--the...

This was my first time at this restaurant. I went with others who had been there before. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich (my first time doing this anywhere). The bun was great (not too heavy). The pork was excellent. They had 4 different BBQ sauces on the table. The sauce was addictive! It also came with a side of... More

We are at the bar. Great service. Enjoyed all of the beers. Had appetizers. The fried jalapeño am and cheese balls were incredible. Enjoyed a variety of their BBQ sauces. Fun evening.

If you like BBQ, this is pretty good. Beer is locally brewed and fantastic. Waiting times not too bad either.
