Quick Beer

I love local beer so I popped in. I got quick service and got their English IPA. A great local beer. The place was buzzing and felt like a local bar with restaurant seating. The barmaid was busy as heck and finally determined that my empty glass meant I either wanted another or wanted to pay and... read more

They have won several national awards for their beers. They have at least six available at any time. They rotate about a dozen types over the year. Have been there over 100 times in the last five years, great experience every time. Monica is one of their super servers. I enjoy the stouts and porters. Southern Living has highlighted this...

This is my first trip to Aiken Brewing even though I have lived in Aiken 10 years. Went on an "off" day but they were still crowded but we were lucky enough to secure a seat at the bar. Our server was superb even though she was swamped. The beer selections are very good but we both agreed, the food... More

Excellent location right on Laurens St. in downtown. Is a sports bar atmosphere. Lot of beers to choose from. Menu is typical. Portions are good size, and prices reasonable. Service when we were there was slow but server was ok. Seemed to be the kitchen that was slow. Place will not win any awards but if you want a beer... More

If you love beer then this is the place for you, they currently have 7 difference kinds of beer on tap raging from a really light to a super dark beer. The food and atmosphere are great and the servers are really nice ad personalable.

Stopped here for lunch. Had there amber beer which was very good. Ordered soup, French Onion, and BLT. The BLT was very good, but the soup was just warm when brought to the table and onions in the soup were under cooked.

Stopped in for lunch with some friends. The sandwichs were plentiful but just OK. The brews were very good, the IPA would be recommended.

Although I am not a beer drinker, those who I have been with absolutely love the specially crafted beers offered up there. And, their beer sampler offers up a variety of samples of ample size so you can pick your own favorite brew. I can, however, attest to the great food offered and the variety. A must try are their...
