Thanks to Barry for suggesting this place.

A sort of unassuming place, for me, anyway. A nice, long, L-shaped wood bar with a pretty extensive tap list (seem to remember 25-30 beers).

Very friendly service and quite knowledgeable as well (always a plus). A nice selection of northeast/New England brewed beers, though I was disappointed that the one White Birch beer listed on the tap list was not available.

They also offer beers served in pints in 12 oz glasses for $4.50, which I thought was sort of cool.

My first impression is of the large all wood bar. It takes up two thirds of the place and it wraps around to where the hard liquor is kept. There's even mirrors like in the Wild West movies. There are five two-top tables near the window and perhaps twice that many in the back. The furthest wall from the street features perhaps the smallest stage known to entertainment--a drum set takes up 75% of the space.

Now for the beers, there are 25-30 of them on tap with another 75? in bottles. I found five on tap which I've never had (just shy of 3,000 rated). This is a pretty good ratio in my book. The service was quite good, there when I needed but not overly obtrusive.

I did not try the food, but from what I witnessed, everyone was enjoying their typical bar-grub fare.

This a bit between a dive bar and a sophisticated beer bar--a great combination in my book.
