I love it. The environment is cozy, with regulars to talk to, awesome beer on tap (happy hour is $2 drafts), and a general sense of good neighborhood. Not only is the staff incredibly knowledgable, but having a beer here is like drinking in your childhood tree house with your best friends.

First of all, you are going to have a hard time finding this place. It's off of Main St in the historic Springfield district downtown. It's a tiny spot of a building, but they have a big backyard with seating. They just opened in September 2006. I was first there the opening weekend and was previously aware of it b/c the owners were the bartendars from London Bridge Pub downtown. They are very aware of the good beers in the world and the proper glassware too. They have a really nice selection of bottles and nothing but good stuff on the 10 taps. The music is loud at night, but they are open from 3pm to 2 am, MON - SUN!! The staff is extremely nice and the owners, Ian & Maryanne are cool people. Maryanne is a cutie too, so that definitely doesn't hurt. I highly recommend this place.

** the picture above is of the building. As I mentioned, it's very small. The building's signage is actually a graffiti looking bilboard painted on the open wall. The figure on the left is a baboon... I still am not sure why a baboon was chosen as nothing inside is baboon or jungle oriented, but it's a cool look. **
