2.9/5  rDev -22.9%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3 | service: 1 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$$

The atmosphere is big there are two levels the bottom being a newly renovated pool hall. Upstairs is seperated into a huge bar and then a clubhouse and 6 pack shop. Lots of frat boys but great sandwiches. Actually best in State College. However the service is horrible. We stopped in for lunch on Superbowl Sunday at around 1:00 and didn't leave till like 3:30 because of the service. The worst part was there was noone else in the bar eating. Just a couple of couples drinking at the bar. They have a decent selection with some seasonals but thats about it and a pint can run upwards of $5. Becareful and ask how much the pint is cause you will be suprised. Also NEVER ORDER A PITCHER OF MICROBREW. They don't have most on tap and will actually open and pour 4 bottles in to a pitcher and charge you $15 for a pitcher of beer. Its crazy. Not one of my favorites but have lots of tv's if I want to see a game that I cant find anywhere else I can find it at Champs.

I like Champs because they offer a decent selection. There are other bars in the area with a larger selection of harder to find beers, but Champs usually has some pretty interesting offerings on tap, like Green Flash or Founders, and they seem to have a good rotation. It's a sports bar, so the atmosphere is about what you'd expect, as is the food. They do have a nice deck for outdoor seating, as well.

probably the best draft selection in town. The place is large so you can always get a seat and with 40+ selections on draft there is always something great. Whomever selects their beers does an amazing job in having a great variety and always several new or special selections.

My go to bar in State College. Great rotating beer selection with lots of my staples, as well (Bell's 2 hearted, Troegs Perpetual, Founders). With 45 taps, there will be a beer here that you'll like. Lots of tvs for watching sporting events. Good atmosphere. Nice deck seating for the warmer months. Good food. Great happy hour weeks days 5-7 (1/2 price drafts).
