All I have to say is "WOW!" My wife and I decided to try something new for dinner last night. We headed to the Bucket to try Doherty's. Upon arrival, it looked just like any old dive bar, serving nothing but BMC. The interior was filled with a bunch of locals watching various games on the many televisions around the bar and even the table area. We picked a table and began to read the beer menu. I didn't count the number of taps, but it looks something like 30-40 and it was pretty much all craft beer with a few larger imports. The back had their bottle list which had to be over 100 beers, including some imports, some 750's and bombers. I ordered a Rogue Imperial IPA and the wife got Magic Hat's Odd Notion (the summer sour grapefruit ale). The beer was served in proper glassware and we were given their food menu. They had all sorts of interesting items from regular pub fare to some interesting pasta dishes. We both got pasta, I got the Rasta Pasta based on what I read in one of the reviews here and she got the Pasta Jordan. The waitress even brought us out some corn muffins while we waited for the food. The portions were huge and the quality was excellent.
If you haven't been, you need to try it. The beer selection and the food are out of this world.

Doherty's is a Providence/Pawtucket institution and rewards those who travel beyond the downtown bar and brewpub scene. The biggest selection in the state--they've recently opened a new establishment in Warwick--you'll always find something you know is good--and usually a few others you've never heard of or have been waiting to try. The high ABV pours are strict and and a bit pricey, but the friendly bartenders don't skimp on tastes. The food menu is extensive and strong as well.
