I swung by Mugs for some lunch and brews on my way to the Brooklyn Brewery. We caught them amidst a special Belgain Tasting offering 4 oz snifters of rare or imported brews. It tied up about half of the draft lines, leaving 10 or so for regular prices and regular serving sizes. We enjoyed both, as a variety of tiny snifters wouldn't pair too well with my burger. I don't know if the menu were compromised for the event, but it seemed to be typical pub food of more-or-less average quality. The food was the one thing about the bar that didn't remind me of Brookline MA's The Publick House... well that and the obvious lack of a shrine to the Mighty Mighty Bosstones. Seriously, the atmosphere was great, and the bar seemed staffed and visited by knowledgeable people who truly appreciated beer. (796 characters)

One of my favorite places in the city. Great quality and selection both on tap and bottle. Food is basic pub fare(burgers, wing sect.) but is actually quite decent. Beer menu displayed digitally at bar. Cool old school bar feel. There are tvs for sports and a pinball machine. The crowd is cool and low key.( no frat boys) Spacious bar with two rooms, a long bar, plenty of tables and a patio in the back. The staff is friendly. Great place. (441 characters)

Service is really great. Ber selection was impressive. Burgers were very good. I would go back without hesitation. Maine Lunch, Bell's Hopslam on tap, among many other notables. (177 characters)

Some of the taps are too warm. Had to go with a bottle to share last time.
What are we, in England? (100 characters)
