“Good food and beer”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Tried a sampler of their beers. Most were fine for my taste, but nothing outstanding. Also had lunch -- may be the best reuben I've ever had -- loved the braised red cabbage in place of sauerkraut. Service was excellent.

“Great Addition to the Ave”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Made our first visit to the Appleton Beer Factory and can understand the hype. First it is clean and well appointed. The staff is attentive and helpful. The food is outstanding. I started off with a pickled egg. Good choice. Just enough spice. My wife had a burger and it actually was done to her request. The side salad was also good abet in a rather small bowl. My Reuben was delicious. The corned beef was perfect. The choppers were also tasty despite the fact that we were informed that they were not in-house. The beer selection was also good. I liked the fact that they were not given weird names but were called what they are. We will return.

“Fun Spot for Great Food”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

This is such a great spot. Interesting, delicious food and a beautiful building with freshly redone historic updates and the backdrop of an authentic brewing system. We've probably tried half of the menu between our family and it's all received the best reviews. Check the crowd if you come before a big name PAC show. We went while Phantom of the Opera was in town and though there were still plenty of seats in the back room, the kitchen was definitely not able to keep up with the unexpected demand. Check it out! You'll love it.

“Love the food”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We have eaten here twice and both times it was excellent. While this is called the Appleton Beer Factory the food is outstanding. On our first visit we shared the pretzel bites, three sliders (all three were outstanding) and the bread pudding with salted caramel sauce is to die for. On our last visit we shared a Reuben with pub chips and it was plenty for both of us. This is a great new addition to downtown Appleton and we will definitely be back.

“Definitely worth stopping in!!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I came in for a late dinner tonight. Awesome!

Ambiance is really nice- made to look like a renovated factory. A little loud when it's really busy but not bad.

Their beer is so good! Can't stop at just one.

We ordered the hangover burger (oh my!!!) and the sliders (really good) with a side of cheese curds - these are so good!! The curds are served with house made ranch ( this is the best ranch dressing I've ever had by far)

The shredded chx sandwich was very good but just a little salty for my preference. The pulled pork had excellent flavor. The Ruben was awesome. I don't usually prefer corned beef but this was really good!

Jane was our waitress and she was so personable and very good at her job :)

We will definitely be returning.
