Stopped in for a drink on a Friday night around 9:30 and the place was pretty full. About 15 taps of mostly of Belgian style and local beers. Allagash White, Saison Dupont, St Bernardus "Brown" (Grottenbier I assume), De Koninck. The wall behind the bar is full of glassware of varying styles, so you don't get every beer in a pint glass. Service was alright considering how busy it was, there were only two guys behind the bar. The interior is dim, casual, and smoke free. Lots of beer signs and other crazy crap on the walls as well as a large chalkboard with the bottle selection, listed by style. I didn't look to closely because when I go to a bar, I'm not too interested in getting beer in a bottle. Nice place overall, I'd like to visit in the summer to utilize the outdoor seating.

I've made Milltown a regular stop over the last few months. I sit at the bar. The service is attentive and knowledgeable. Ethan, the manager, is a true proponent of beer. In the Chapel Hill/Carrboro area, he gets the most interesting kegs, especially in terms of limited releases. It's rare that I see a beer at nearby Tyler's that wasn't at Milltown first. The lines are clean and well cared for. Some of the kegs are hard and pricey, so sometimes the price of a pint can be a surprise. The food is standard pub fare with a Belgian twist. The fries are especially good. If you're in Chapel Hill/Carrboro, Milltown should be on your must stop list. Also, parking is available in the lot next to the Army surplus store.

My girlfriend & I hit this place three times in an overnight stay in Chapel Hill (2/11/12) and it did not disappoint once. We saw a gig at the Cat's Cradle - this place is just across the street. Their drafts when we were there:

Big Boss Angry Angel
Alagash White
Delirium Tremans
Duck Rabbit Baltic Porter (2011)
Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux
Foothills Total Eclipse
Foothills Sexual Chocolate (2011)
Foothills Sexual Chocolate (2012)
Founders Centennial
Fullsteam Hogwash
Guinness
Highland Gaelic
Kulmbacher Monchshof Schwarzbier
Lagunitas New Dogtown Pale
McChouffe
Miller High Life (Champagne of Beers)
Southern Tier Imperial Oat Stout
St. Bernardus Abt 12 & 8

The bottle list was even more impressive - heavy on Belgians (nothing wrong with that) but covering all aspects of beer too.

The vibe is great, laid back & bohemian.

We ate there twice, I highly recommend the salmon (which was on special so it may not be available at all times) and the nachos (be sure to get the house made guacamole).

The staff were super cool & knew their brews. I was told they're going to have a Founders blowout soon featuring CBS, KBS, etc...

If you're in the area - give this place a shot, you'll be happy you did.
