vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$

A - visited on a Friday night, so a bit of crowd was expected, an there was, lucked into a couple of bar seats, place is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, beers available were well presented, tap handles werent so far back you couldnt tell what they were, music was a bit loud, but not so loud it drowned out our conversation. there appears to be a downstairs, didnt venture down there

Q - clean glasses, clean everything, was of the highest quality

Ser - we were served quickly and each drink was replaced quickly. they took my out of state license, just needed a second credit card/ID to verify, server was friendly and accomadating

Sel - selection was magnificent, 20ish draughts, 30ish bottles, tap prices were reasonable, bottle prices seem exorbitant, $7 for glass of 10 Commandments, $13 for a bottle of Rochefort

did not try the food

overall, we very much enjoyed the Dirty Truth and will visit here many more times, despite the 30 minute commute, would like to try the food

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.
