With our rotating taps, Ashley's Ann Arbor will have over 1000 different beers throughout the year. Such a huge selection like that means we're bound to have all of your favorites, plus some that will become your new favorites. And for the whiskey lover, Ashley's is your place. We have a huge selection of small batch Bourbons and Scotch single malts from which to choose. Today Ashley's is known as a leader in the craft beer movement and has partnerships with many great breweries to bring their best to Michigan and Ann Arbor. We have traversed the continents to bring you a world class selection of beer and ale, from the hoppy British bitters to the dark lagers of South Germany, from the classic Pilsners of Bohemia to the arcane fruit beers of Flanders, from the craft micro-brew beers of the US Pacific northwest to the finest Michigan micro-brews. At Ashley's, there is always something new to try and explore. In addition to our wide selection of beers, we have a diverse menu of food that is made to order from the freshest ingredients around. Some of our most popular items include our pesto fries and our fish and chips. Our kitchen is open late seven days a week and our chef's create unique items that always go well with beer, like our Stilton fries and our premium burgers are made with Certified Angus Prime Beef and are crafted into mouthwatering combinations. Creative sandwiches on our house made spent grain bread are very popular. Our tradition has been to celebrate the simple pleasures of life... Good food - Good drink - Good friends!

Great for the beer lover

Went here a couple of times on my trip to Ann Arbor after it was recommended to me by multiple people. I was never disappointed, I was always met by friendly and knowledgeable staff and a ridiculously large beer menu.

Maybe this is more a student place, and I am getting too old for that, but the tables were filthy and the beer was not super cold. There is an amazing choice though, I was really looking forward going here to start my "Ashley's beer card" or something like that. You get rewards when you have had a certain amount... More

Anytime I am in Ann Arbor I always look forward to visiting Ashley's for their great beer selection. My experience has always been pleasant and one of the reasons I return.

I'd like to offer a sincere apology for the unprofessional behavior, Alex. You're right: There is no reason for them to be complaining openly about another customer -- that's not our style. I will make sure to address the staff about this because I don't want this to continue. Thanks for keeping me posted. Best, Jeff M., Owner More

Went here for beers. This place has a very fine and large selection of craft beers. Ashley's looks like a bar that would have their food delivered plopped in baskets or hardy ceramic plates. We were surprised when our appetizers & meals arrived with better than expected care and presentation. To me it means a lot when the cooks out... More

Located in the downtown core of Ann Arbor, this place looks pretty scary from the outside. But if you venture in you will find it really is a very quaint style English pub. They have an amazing selection of craft beers with a number of "founders beers" priced at only $3 per pint. I has an Indian pale ale which... More

I work just down the street from Ashley's and I walk by the place often, many times to another restaurant, forgetting just how good Ashely's can be. It's bar food, for sure, but served up in a fine way with a nice smile and a cold adult beverage at a fair price. What's not to like?

Stopped here based on TripAdvisor ratings before a basketball game. The service was fun, beer good and food satisfying. The most fun is reading all the descriptions of beers. I'm not a big beer guy but this was well worth it. Nice job Ashley's.

I barely go to bars. This one seems good and they have all kinds of beer if not hundred. I am not a beer fan. But if you are, you should definitely go and try.

I don't venture to Ann Arbor often, but when I do I try to find a local place. This was the prefect place! We went on a Saturday night. The upstairs was quite crowded so we ventured downstairs. I loved the setting. We were able to grab two seats at the bar. The bartender was awesome! I wish I would... More

Every time I go here with different people and they are all glad I brought them. Any style of beer from all over the world. The tasters are great to try and make a dent in the 70 beers on tap.
