My wife and I went on a trip to NH over the weekend and on the way out, I said I really wanted to go here, and I'm very happy we did.

It was a lot smaller than I expected once we arrived. The seating probably more than triples if you elect to eat outside in the patio area, but since it was January, we obviously didn't. We went on a Sunday afternoon, so we were one of about three parties there. We walked in the door and there was a small area to sit for dining and then there were a few seats at the bar and a couple of bar tables in the room connected to the dining room. Lots of beer paraphernalia all over the walls and a flat screen TV in the bar and dining area. Big windows all over the dining and you could see the woods and mountains in the distance, a lot of land in front of you, very nice. The bar had 30+ taps and tons of different upside down glasses hanging at the bar tenders disposal. I would have given a higher rating on the atmosphere, but it got kicked down for one major reason, and believe me know it's knit picky on my part. Since it was January and on a Sunday I expected playoff football to be on, but it was only on one of the TV's. From where we were sitting I could see the game though so it didn't really bother me, I was just surprised, not much better than beer and football on a Sunday afternoon in my opinion.

The quality of everything was very good. The place was clean, food and beer were fresh too. I found that the place did a great job on temperature control with the beer on tap. It wasn't too cold, just slightly chilled below room temperature, which was nice because it was mostly dark beer we got. They also took their time pouring the beer, letting the foam settle than brought it to you, very nice. Along with that, there was only one sever/hostess/bartender and she was very nice, friendly and attentive.

Even though it wasn't the biggest beer selection I've ever seen, it was still very good. This bar has discovered the perfect mix of quality and quantity to keep any beer lover very happy. The tap list had a huge variety of imports including Belgians and several from the UK, than some quality stuff from the US as well. Love for Stone, Mikkeller, and Cantillon on this visit, had atleast 2 of each on tap for this visit. I got an Old Engine Oil and Mikkeller Monk's Elixer, my wife got one of the Mikeller IPAs and my buddy got another old engine oil and Stones Imperial Russian Stout. Could have gotten much more, wish I had more time. They were in the middle of printing a new list so I can't remember all of it, but it was certainly quality. The bottle selection was also very good, much of the same breweries just different beers. Good selection from De Doll, Dieu Du Ceil, St Bernardius, and the Trappist Rocheforts. All in all the selection was awesome, just trust me, I have no reason to lie!

Food was outstanding. I got a steak and cheese sandwich, my wife got a lobster roll, my buddy got steamed mussels, and his wife got an onion pizza. We all loved our food. The seafood was really fresh, and (local from what I understand). And I'm not big into french fries as I used to be, but their take on them (Belgian frites), were very very tasty.

Everything overall was absolutely outstanding. The prices were VERY reasonable, especially considering the quality of everything (I think we only dropped $115ish with tax and tip), a wonderful visit and I really hope to go back. You're only cheating yourself if you're in the area and you don't go.
