Visited here during my wife's 10 year CLARK reunion. Had dinner with some friends and a few tasty beers. Parking is actually pretty easy with a lot basically next door or some off street access too. The outside is a red brick building and going in the front door opens into a prototypical beerbar/brewpub scene. Long rectangular bar to the right about 20 stools, table and chair setups along the walls, chalkboard with draft list (approx 20 lines no crap on tap), and some stool and high table seats in the middle. Extensive beer list on bottle as well heavy on belgians and the prices may have been a little high for bottles but drafts were spot on.
Food menu is cool, focus on organic and locally grown products including seasonal varieability. Had tastes of my wife's salad complete with fiddleheads and enjoyed it. Also orderd the cheeseburger pizza with free range ground beef and local bacon to boot. The pizza was very yummy. Only disappointment was the cheese selection for the grilled cheese, a fairly bland dry cheese that didnt help with the slightly overcooked bread/toast. Otherwise all was good.
Beer list on draft was a mix of heavy hitters (DFH Palo Santo), locals (BBC coffee porter), and high end imports. I also had an Allagash Curieux on draft for only $6.
Overall an incredible addition to the beer scene in a city that was lacking a real presence. Only drawback is apparently no reservations and the place seems to be usually crowded.
A must hit if in Central Mass.
