More than just great beer!

The incredible beer selection at Brasserie V likely draws many in, but the food and atmosphere ought to keep them coming back. I was immediately impressed by the broad selection of beers on tap, as well as bottle selection in their cellar. As I began to peruse the menu I realized that there was... read more

Starts with ~300 beers on tap and in bottle. And with almost none of them being the mundane microbrews (really... doesn't every microbrew's EPA taste the same, just like all american light beers taste the same?), they have a startling array of flavors and styles. I had a a India Pale... Lager. They offer tasting sized glasses to make sampling... More

We made up for a lackluster dinner at Harvest with a night out at this fun Belgian spot. I loved their cheese plate, which allowed this out of town gal to sample some of the best. Our entrees were great, and free flowing fun beers. They even had gluten free beer and gluten free bread, which was a lovely surprise.... More

Good food and more beer choices than you can imagine. Wait staff very helpful when choosing beers--samples were possible.

We had a late dinner here with another couple. We had drinks at the bar. They had a very extensive menu of wines, drinks, and tap beers. Very impressive! We moved to our table. After an explanation of the specials, we ordered meals ranging from salads, to mussels, and of course, their famous frites. All of the food was good.... More

This place advertises itself as a Belgium bistro and it may be. The food is quite nice-- do not miss the mussels-frites, repeat do not miss the mussels-frites. A couple of years ago they doubled in size, so the wait for a table is no longer bad, even at peak times. They are very proud of their beer selection --... More

This is a really nice place to sit and enjoy great food in casual company. The steak frites is some of the best I've ever had. Something about the cut of meat as well as the cabernet sauce that was very special! Desserts are amazing...from sorbet to the pot de creme. We aren't beer drinkers but the beer list looked... More

We ate lunch at the Brasserie V and enjoyed it very much. Great selection of beers (mostly all are craft beers) and sandwiches. I would highly recommend the Ahi Tuna sandwich and Belgian fries

We went here twice, once in March and the other one in May, and we enjoyed the restaurant and its food on both occasions. The restaurant does not accept reservations, so be prepared to wait for a table. Once we were seated, it didn't take too much to get our food ordered and on our table. Specifically, in May, we...
