This was more restaurant than bar. Smaller bar upping the ante for the eatery. Yes, some very good local selections including just the one HF that day. Cannot compare to the Blackfly or the Probition P. within a two-minute walk, but if they have something left that the other places ran out of, then why not. As very buzy eatery, I didn't feel as comfortable sitting around, and the kitchen added to the already humid air.If you are staying in the area multiple nights, this would be on your list as a choice.

Great beer selection including many regional and international favorites. Youngs Double Chocolate Stout is usually on tap here. They offer the full beer spectrum so you can bring your American or (Canadian)friends with you.

There is a sports bar in the back with plenty of televisions and a quieter dining room towards the front of the building.

Perfect way to spend time when the Alchemist is not available Typical pub grub, good service and local flavor. They were even open on Easter.

This is not a destination, but a decent place to visit if you are in town.

Amazing selection of beers both on tap and bottles. Litteraly something for everyone (except the Bud fans maybe)! Seriously, I was tempted to go through the style guidelines only to try and see what they didn't have. Everything from double IPAs to sours. And quite a few sours at that (gueze, flanders red, oud bruin and even gose)! Our waitress was extremely helpful and knowledgable on the beers. Food was good. Not as outstanding as the beers, but good. The beer menu was the big draw for me.

Visited on a late Friday afternoon back in mid-July 2011 and sat out on the back patio. Outside patio was packed but remained comfortable with sturdy (non-wobbly) patio tables, chairs, and umbrellas. Atmosphere was slightly diminished by a loud and obnoxious group sitting directly beside us, but still was enjoyable.

Quite an extensive tap list with a lot of Vermont offerings (notables include Hill Farmstead and Trapp), alongside some Stone, Dogfish Head, and Allagash. A solid tap list, but if you're looking for rarities you probably wouldn't be satisfied here.

Service was quite good despite how busy it was on the patio. Quite friendly staff from our experience, and we were taken care of well. For food we had the Vermont burger and chicken sandwich and both were tasty and certainly above-average for pub food. Prices seemed fair and reasonable for food and beverage (including the Vermont Sampler: 20oz for $6).

I'd recommend this place for a relatively inexpensive lunch, and a pretty good tap list to accompany it.
