A Little Cheese With My Wine.
I love the Bear, the bartenders are all awesome, and the owner is one of the coolest people to talk to.
I rarely drink beer, but the pub works that out, seeing as they have an awesome wine selection.
I'm actually going to go up there now. It's awesome.

I moved to Waco from San Francisco in July. My two years in SF really turned me into a beer snob. The assortment of amazing bars there was, well, amazing! When the time came to move to Waco, I was afraid of the selection of bars I would find. Soon after I move here, I come to find an amazing bar within walking distance of where I live.
My first big appreciation is that they don't put in cheap domestic beers to take up tap space, I'm pretty sure there are 15 taps. There's always a good assortment of craft beers. About half from Texas and the other half from other parts of the country or the world. I have never gotten a bottle, but I think it's a pretty extensive selection.
Second, they rotate in different beers all the time. I have my favorite beers, but I love trying new ones. I have tried so many new beers here.
Third, the atmosphere. It's great lighting, a great pub feel. It kinda feels like everyone knows each other, which they usually do. Met lots of great people here. The patio out back is great too.
Fourth, the bartenders are nice guys and know their stuff.
This bar would be a great bar anywhere, so glad it's in Waco!

"oh hey all my friends!"
Great atmosphere - Great Beer
Dancing Bear is a common place with my friends.
They are Beer Snobs which gives you an appreciation for great beer and the consumption of such.
The outside is the best! Simple but great!
"pub?" more like, "home."
I think I've been to this pub nearly once a week every week since it's opened (minus thesis/comprehensive exam crunch times). It's like Cheers--everyone there knows your name, except Ted Danson isn't there to look at you with his creepy furrowed brows.
There's always a great selection of local beers and seasonal beers. PLUS, if you are afraid of beer, there's cider for the weaklings (myself included), wine for the pretentious, and Sofias (AKA juice boxes for adults--straw included).
