Stopped in here for a beer before my dinner next door at Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant, and then returned later after a show in Bridgeport.
Happy hour here is from 4:00-7:00pm. All drafts are 1/2 price. How nice is that considering the twenty tap draft selection is constantly rotating something interesting.
The bar staff was extremely knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the beer served here. The bar area has a really nice feel to it, with 20 or so stools and a few tables around the periphery of the bar area.
The available draft selections were clearly marked on several chalkboards in the bar, so it was easy to figure out what was being poured without having to closely examine the tap handles like at other bars.
While there I enjoyed the Avery IPA, The Maharaja, and a little Sumpin, Sumpin. All great beers.
My friend and I also enjoyed some great conversation with Jonathon the bar manager. He really seemed passionate about his job. This fellow also knew his beer.
While we did not get anything to eat, the food that was being served looked pretty tasty. I wouldn't mind coming back here for some snacks and beer.
If you find yourself in New Haven, seek this place out. It's right off the common (or whatever they call it in CT). The beer was great, and the service at the bar was fantastic.
I'll definitely be back the next time I find myself in the area.
