The BBC Plymouth, aka the Snug, is two different places depending on the season, and it's literally two different places between the bar and the upstairs area.

I always go upstairs, where there are big chairs and a fireplace and dartboards - I like the clubby atmosphere. It's a great place to relax and have real conversation and even negotiations.

In the winter, they very often have a cask-conditioned ale for the weekend. It's always expertly poured and it's always something interesting, usually pretty local.

There are several fine beer taverns in Plymouth, but I always come back to the BBC.

The original BBC. Yeah, it's wicked small... so what, don't care. Yeah they don't serve food... so what, doesn't matter. Gets crowded but have never had a problem getting served. Staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and easy to strike up conversation with. They've got a wide range of selections from local and beyond - always top quality and thoughtfully chosen. The best hangout in the area, tried and true and never disappointing. A comfortable cozy hole in the wall, great place to park yourself and warm up with a few pints... make sure to save me a spot.

I stopped by here Saturday night with some friends and had a great time. Was really packed when we came in but after grabbing our drinks we headed upstairs where it was alot more comfortable with lots of big chairs and tables. 2 dartboards were open so we started playing.

They had 2 casks going and 10+ drafts. Some of the more memorable brews they had were Bruery 4 Calling Birds, 3 or 4 mayflower beers (one of which was a cask) and Troegs Java Head on cask. Nothing mind blowing but definitely a solid lineup.

The chill upstairs with couches and darts made it a successful night. If we were downstairs it would have been a short outing with how crowded it was down there.

The wife and I were on our way to Provincetown from York Beach, Maine, through Newburyport, Mass., and the Parker River Refuge. I looked at a map and saw Plymouth. Wait! I wanna go… the Founding Fathers! The Rock! And the Mayflower too…

And some beer! What’s with this British Beer Company? We looked around Plymouth and stopped at BBC. This is a tiny pub, just a hole in the wall. Same inside… a small bar packed with locals watching football, plus an upstairs “lounge” with some sofas. The whole thing reminded me of the pirate taverns of Fells Point in Baltimore. You could hear the roar from the dead-silent street…

The upstairs lounge was the real thing for us, empty and cozy, with an old grandfather’s clock and portraits of Churchill and Thomas More by Hans Holbein. Service was real nice at the downstairs bar, with a preppy college dude ready to pour beer. No food at this location (the other 9 locations do have a full menu), and somewhat high prices: $6 for a Mayflower IPA, $7 for a snifter of Moylan’s Hopsickle. Beer menu is updated online, which is always helpful.

The taps: Avery Kaiser, Dogfish Punkin, Dogfish 60, Coney Island, Anderson Valley, Kentucky Bourbon, Moylan's Hopsickle, Mayflower IPA, Southern Tier Pumpkin… plus Guinness, Bass and some Euros for the crowd.

If I lived around Plymouth, I'd be here every other day. As a visitor, I will make a point of coming here next time I'm around Cape Cod. Worth a visit, and then some.
