Was just here for the first time while in town with family for a party and we stopped here during the afternoon and I was very impressed. A HUGE beer selection with beers from all over. They also allow other local restaurants to deliver food to you and you can eat it right there. I thought that was pretty cool.... More

The big draw to The Beer Market is in the name - the huge beer list. The bartenders and wait staff know their beer. It's all they do. This isn't a full service bar so if you're headed there with friends make sure it's beer they're into. Food is available via a variety of area restaurants - they can provide... More

So I'm not a huge beer fan but can drink it without problem and have simple taste. So this wasn't the place for me being a domestic fan and hater of craft brews. No Budweiser or PBR on hand so like all micro brews I got their version of them which I didn't care for only to find out since... More

Beer Market is a unique pub that offers many local and universal beers. What makes this place special and popular is the ability to order from the area restaurants for pick up or delivery. Nice outdoor patio in the nice weather.

Great selection of beer with a wonderful atmosphere. Nice staff to boot! The Market doesn't serve food but they have menus from the surrounding restaurants for you to order from; it's a phone call away. Casual, hipster-ish place. Enjoy a city-like feel while in the burbs.

Great place! It reminds me of a brewery taproom with lots of good beers in a clean spacious and casual setting. And although they do not serve food, they have a "virtual menu" of nearby restaurant offerings that can be ordered for delivery. Finally, Matt, one of the bartenders is a great guy. I really enjoyed my visit and as... More

As others have noted, the name is perfect. We were hungry, and wanted to order some food, so the waitress brought over a menu binder that had all of the restaurants nearby. She told us to call in our order, and have it delivered to table #4. It is an outstanding concept, and I wish I had thought of it... More

This place has over 20 national craft beers on tap and well over 100 bottles from the tops craft brewers in the country and even outside of the US. You must come here.
