Was here on a Saturday afternoon. It was destination 3 of 4 for my trip to the area.

I loved this place. I had just come from Moan and Dove ( a sister bar as I understand it ) and this place topped the quality with a spectacular atmosphere. This is more of a city-like establishment as opposed to a typical local-corner bar.

The 40 taps down the wall were all impressive.

The food menu looked good, but I wasn't hungry at the time.

It is located right on the main road through town, but there really isn't a sign outside. So, if you're going for your first time, I'd suggest taking note of the street address and pay attention to building numbers.

This is a great little area that I look forward to visiting again soon.

Not to menition this bar .... I could probably make it an event in of itself.

Fantastic service, wonderful atmosphere, imaginative menu with super fresh, local
ingredients (I only wish they had a few more vegetarian options, but the ones they do have are excellent)...and the tap list!!! wow! At least 40 taps, and the selection is pretty amazing.
They always have a great balance of local breweries and breweries from around the US and the world. I've been lucky enough to be there when they had what seemed like a total surprise tapping of KBS, Backwoods Bastard, a Maine Beer Co. tap takeover, and many other treasures.
So, so good!

This place is sleek and hip. 40 or so taps with good rotating selection. Good beers that aren't flat, good food but limited, kinda knowledgeable bartenders that are short with you and sometimes snarky. But overall a solid place for good beer. The crowd is mixed with some hipsters who nurse their $7 beer for over and hour.
