Stopped in during the Ann Arbor Art Fair yes the service was great. Large selection of both sour beers and non-sour beers on tap. The menu included many vegetarian dishes as well. I ordered a Tempeh Reuben with a salad.

Brought our son here who was visiting from out of the country because he had heard of Jolly Pumpkin's beer and wanted to check it out. We went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a casual, big place. The food selection matches the casual vibe. We all tried something different with positive results. The beer was also delicious; several... More

While at Ann Arbor Art Fair we made JP one of our lunch destinations. Again! Great food, lots of beverage choices, and friendly knowledgeable service. Truffle fries are divine. Asian Salad was yummy! Lamb burger (I conned a bite from friend) was fresh & delish. Husband enjoyed Walleye po'boy. Breads, buns all tops.

We made a trip to Ann Arbor with specific intentions of visiting Jolly Pumpkin as we all love sour beers and were told that they specialize is sour beers. We ordered a sample of all of their beers but we're disappointed that they weren't all sours. The food was alright. The beer was alright. The server didn't really pay attention... More

All of the food is fantastic but the root vegetable quinoa salad is the beat. I crave it every time I come to Ann Arbor.

Jolly pumpkin specializes in sour beers. You should know that going in. Sour beers are an acquired taste. Since I'm not a sour beer person, I settled for a melon flavored wheat beer. It was cold and delicious just the way I like it. We ordered a range of apps. They were all decent but nothing spectacular. The environment was... More

My husband and I stayed in Ann Arbor for the night to celebrate our anniversary. After dinner we decided to stop in Jolly Pumpkin for a drink.

What a unique place! The brewery specializes in Belgian sour-style beer and I was interested to try that. I got the Whitbeer and it was amazing! Our party of 5 ordered 4 orders of truffle fries, too, so you know those were tasty. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and courteous, though he didn't come by the table very often to... More
