Wells Ales & Lagers

Wells outsideWells Ales & Lagers is a new craft beer bar in Williamsburg. Owned by former industry rep Jeff Wells, it’s a charming place. As you walk in, there is a long exposed brick wall on the right and the tile-backed bar on the left. Above the tile are two built-in shelves, the lower with appropriate glassware and the top displaying the many bottled beers they offer. The bar is varnished wood with comfortable high chairs. A slatwood soffit and ceiling, recessed lighting, candles, fresh flowers, and a large, colorful painting all add to the ambience. Wells insideWells has a cozy yet sophisticated feel. They offer 10 rotating drafts and over 100 bottled beers from around the world, a very well chosen selection. You can also purchase beer-to-go from a cooler in the back (prices are very reasonable). They serve food as well – paninis (mine was quite tasty) and salads, both made with local ingredients. A nice selection of cheeses is also available. The draft beers and food are listed on chalkboards along the top of the back wallWells taps and one clean unisex bathroom is located in the back, too.

Wells Ales and Lagers is a very nice addition to the Williamsburg beer scene – I highly recommend you check it out for yourself.
