My brother has been telling me about this place for years as he works down the street and it's his local after work hangout.

Atmosphere is a mix of old school New England, family restaurant, local steak house and even a hint of sports bar. Spread out over several different rooms the experience can be vastly different if your in around the bar with TV or off to the other side in the booths.

Beer selection is pretty impressive. 80 beers on tap with a good bottle selection as well. Beers run the gamut of typical local and national micro and macro favorites to more obscure crafts and even rare tap only crafts from Founders and such. One negative note. I know it’s hard to keep up a current beer list, but every beer I tried to order during my meal they were out of and I had to select an alternative. Overall quality of all beer though was very good.

Food selection is all encompassing with just about anything for everyone. Appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, chicken sandwiches, rollups, ,entrees, etc. Food was hearty and tasty, but nothing overly mind-blowing.

A nice Pub that if I lived in the area I could see myself hitting up regularly. Maybe not worth going out of the way for, but if you’re in the area a must stop.

Currently my favorite drinking spot. Of course, having 80 beers on tap doesn't hurt! They tried to maintain 100, but they were failing to keep them all stocked ( which many of us complained about ), but it is much rarer now for them to be out of a beer.

The menu keeps changing as they try to find more dishes that are special and popular. They recently added Reuben Eggrolls, which are to die for. I can also vouch for the ribs, and the burgers are large and tasty.

The bar section is a bit smaller than you might expect, but in the dining room they have 6 person booths which gives you some privacy with a larger party size. Also, the beer garden is a delight in the spring, though it gets a bit hot in the middle of the summer.

Full disclosure-my local pub, I tip well and get remembered because of it.
Love this place. The food is well above standard, with themes and specials, plus (usually) better than normal standard pub offerings.80 beers on tap, with a list broken down by style readily available. Waitresses in the dining room may not be too knowledgeable, but the people behind the bar are usually pretty up on what is available.
Just a really nice place to enjoy a variety of craft brews, friendly, comfortable, but sometimes really busy, be patient. Wait for a seat at the bar, you'll probably end up in nice conversation with whoever is next to you. Doesn't get any better.

I just wanted to throw major props to this place for having world class brews and a fantastic selection every time I stop in. Enjoyed nuggett nectar on cask recently. The ownership really knows their beer, and continues to impress with gems on tap and rotating them constantly. For this place to have 100 or so drafts is great. Their IPA selections are top notch. The food selection is always very interesting and they have most
of wha you are looking to have. I have never had a bad
meal here. In the nice weather they have a nice
outdoor siting area.

This place is close to our new house and I feel like I discovered gold.

Nice pub, open, lighting seemed good, we were there for lunch, outside seating for warmer times.

Quality and service were both good, and the menu seems to have a little wider verity than just normal pub food.

Selection of food is good, selection of beer is great. They have lots of choices, the standard fair as well as the unusual.

The food is average to a little above, menu is the norm with a little wider verity than normal and from what I saw all the plates were good.

Its off the beaten path a little but if you're in that area its well worth the trip to stop by for some pints, they have an excellent selection of beers and the food is good too.

This is great beer bar.

I was there for the first Patriots game and it was the wrong venue.

The TV was smaller than the lil mac book screen but that was ok because the beer was amazing.

Bartenders know pours and know their beers. Server was not great. Offered little to no insight into what they offered.

Chicken Wings were good but crazy expensive when your buying five and six dollar drafts.

Dark inside which I don't mind. Old Tavern kind of atmosphere with beer advertisements plastered on most of the walls. Nothing really interesting or impressive.

Great beer bar but not much else to offer. Would give it another shot if I lived in the area.
