I am more into the beer aspect than the video game aspect, but I do love the beer here! I suppose, it's not that I don't like old video games, but I want to concentrate on the excellent beer I am having more than playing video games, but that's just me. On to the beer...

Happy hour is a great deal, 1 dollar off, making my beers 5 bucks plus tip. They had Founder's Imperial Stout ( major nerd points) and Firestone Walker's Double Jack DIPA, amazing, on my last trip. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly with the samples. He enjoyed a little beer nerd chat which I always enjoy at as beer spot. I hate being treated like a jerk if I want to nerd out and certainly that was not the case here.

The beer selection is large , comprehensive, and on my last trip, impressive. My girlfriend had an Allagash Dubbel which was awesome. I will certainly come back for the beer, along with Mugs, the best beer in the Williamsburg area and maybe the best. I appreciate this place. (980 characters)

The selection is fantastic here. I never tried the cocktails or food (do they really serve food? Maybe, but I never noticed.) But the beers are great, for a decent price. And of course the retro games and atmosphere are fun. Just beware of how crowded it gets on weekends. (272 characters)

It's a bar that's also an arcade. Get it? What more is there to say?

Fine. I can say a bit more. They have good prices on great beer (most beers are $6, many beers have over 90 on Beer Advocate. They've even had Bourbon County Stout on draft a few times!). I believe happy hour runs 7 days a week. Happy hour means beers are $1 cheaper. Marble Madness is a really fun game but I don't really want to promote it because I like how no one's ever playing it when I go there. It's also impossible to beat by level 4. Anyway, this place gets super crowded pretty early on Friday and Saturday nights, but during the day and during the week, it's a great, spacious place to chill out.

I come here 9 out of 10 times I'm in Williamsburg. You should too. (747 characters)
