Description: 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!

“A great stop for Craft Beer in Ann Arbor - beware of no parking however!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We decided to get dinner as we passed through Ann Arbor. I read great reviews about the beer selection at Ashleys. Parking is a hassle as Ashleys is on the edge of the Michigan campus, I had to park 4 blocks away on a Sunday evening. There is no parking lot. I dropped the family off first - this was wise. The setting is that of a wooden somewhat dark college bar but the place has a lot of character. There were quite a few kids seated in the back on Sunday so my 5 year old was not too out of place. The craft beer selection was amazing with nearly 20 rotating taps of excellent Michigan breweries and beyond! My wife had St Bernadus ON Draft, and she was very excited about that! There is limited food for kids (burger, nachos, fries) but my son had some nachos and my daughter had a black bean burger. I had a great set of fish tacos, the clam chowder and turkey Ruben were also great! We were pleasantly surprised by the good quality food. Overall we had a good experience, got the craft beer we wanted and satisfied the kids as well!

“Fun place to hang with friends!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Has to be the most extensive beer list in the Ann Arbor area (at least as far as I am familiar). Has a unique but great atmosphere. Worst part is the service - usually understaffed and takes a long time to get another drink/your bill.

Surprisingly good food for a beer lover's bar! And be prepared to order real beer and not that light stuff!

“Lots of draft choices.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

With over 60 beers on draft and excellent food what could be better. A bit loud but that's what it's all about. FRIENDS! BEER! FOOD! Did I mention the beer?
