  • .............
  • Vegetarians can find a fair amount of selections on the menu, and the back patio is great during warm weather (its also often quieter than the main room).
  • Hmmmm, do I want the fish and chips or just a stout?!?!?
  • The comforting Craftsman style dcor and secluded back patio helped to turn Library Alehouse into a destination.
  • This is the only place that has Chouffe on tap. High alco content makes this Belgian beer a certified panty dropper. Ladies...
  • Beers galore!
  • Talk about film and vfx really loud with sunglasses on if you want to blend in with the locals.
  • Tukey meatloaf! Yum!
  • Don't take reservations, usually a 20 min wait. Worth it though
  • Drink Drake's Denogginizer (10% ABV), mmmm Tasty!!!
  • Great beer selection. Some nice tap takeovers... If you like IPAs you'll love this place
  • Free chips and salsa? YES. Amazing specialty beers? YES. Beautiful outdoor patio? YES. KCRW Fringe Benefits Provider? YES YES YES!!! What are you waiting for?
  • The beer menu is larger than the food menu w/~30 beers on draft! The food is consistently amazing & reservations are not accepted. Use the patio in back for lunch or dinner, or grab a beer at the bar.
  • Don't fear a sometimes crowded wait. Put your name in and head next door to Rick's Tavern for a drink. The hostess will come get you when your table is ready.
  • The Hell Burger is serious business.
  • Last night I told the bartender, "Don sent me." and I got a glass of Pliny the Younger. Thank you twitter!
  • Follow @LibraryAleHouse on twitter to get the latest info on exactly what specialty beers they're tapping.
  • One of the only places in SM that occasionally has Pliney the Elder on tap. Worth a visit for that alone. Food is surprisingly good for a bar.
  • Great atmosphere and solid menu. Try one of their craft beers
  • $5 burger Mondays!! Love love the ahi burger. And of course love the beer selection!
