Went yesterday (Saturday) at about 6:00 after a fun round of golf & rain. Driving through the neighborhoods from exit 26 had my friend worried, as this was our first visit. When we found it, we looked at each other; the paint is peeling, the screen on the side door to the kitchen is broken off, there was a sketchy man sitting on the stoop out front, but we parked and gathered our courage. Opening the door and looking in instantly made me happy. A lovely wodden l-shaped bar with taps all over the place, a large coller full of bottles, and much liquor.
The bar itself was kind of quiet, more people were in the next room at dining tables, but overall the place was not busy by any stretch. The bartender gave us good prompt service. The beer menu has maybe 40 drafts on one side and just as many bottles on the other side. Overall a very good selection containing numerous IPA's APA's, Hefe's, a couple of stouts (Stone RIS!), 2 Barleywines, and some misc. other ales.
I started w/ a 10 oz. Maharaja ($8). Ended with a 4 beer flight (you can also order a 6 beer flight) with Delirium Tremens, Loose Cannon on cask, Harpoon Helles Blond Bock and SN Brown Saison. Great stuff. We also had an order of Buffalo Wings, which were very good. Hot enough that you knew it, but not over done. Just right.
My only concern is the pricing. I think for that area the prices are high.
$13 for a bottle of Rochefort 10? $8 for 10 oz. of Maharaja? These are higher than TPH, my frame of reference for any good beer bar, and this is Pawtucket! Nachos on their menu were $10.99, maybe the highest I've ever seen.
Despite the prices, the selection was really nice, so I'm sure I'll visit again. A breath of fresh air in an area that has too few good places to enjoy beer.

My favorite beer spot in RI. And the food is fantastic as well. Win/Win.
