Visited on day 4 of our June 2011 Northeast pub crawl. For lunch time it was already well-populated - you get the feeling that this place gets wall to wall later on.

Huge tap selection (as well as bottles) including many local brews I've not seen elsewhere. Great updated menu was a plus and our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Sat next to an older gentleman who's lifetime goal is to sample 10,000 beers (he's up to 8,800) and he was going wild with the selection. Great vibe - lots of friendly laid back types enjoying great beer.

4.67/5  rDev +5.4%
vibe: 4.75 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 5 | $$

Atmosphere: This place is rustic and filled with more beer paraphernalia than you can imagine. Signs, mirrors, quotes, tap handles, pictures, and displays. Just shy of cluttered, but brings a beer-orientated ambiance.

The layout is a high point with several different bars inside. The main bar when you walk in is the largest and probably the most generic. Plenty of light plays on the wooden interior. Towards the back of the downstairs theirs an area I’ll refer to as a ‘nook’, much more private with a much smaller bar. This area is low light and quite intimate. The upstairs houses yet another bar, but is split into two deck areas. The floor plan is slightly more open and seems more European than the main bar.

Atmosphere overall reminds me of Delirium Café in Brussels

Service: Bartenders seemed flustered, but that is to be expected during the festival. The ordering strategy was 3-4 oz samples ordered with flight cards. From what I could gather, everyone seemed friendly as they could be and knowledgeable as well.

Selection: My experience was during the Belgian Beer Festival. The quality was impeccable. The amount of beers on tap including the bottle selection was unbelievable. This is Max’s strong suit.

Value: The flight style samples were all $3.50 regardless of the beer, which afforded the ability to taste a lot of world-class beers. Overall, this place is at the pinnacle of the beer drinking experience. If you find yourself anywhere even remotely close, stop by.
