This and Rose Alley closer to the waterfront are two strong reasons to visit New Beige. Great selection of unusual and unexpected regional brews. Always something delicious to try with a list that caters to all tastes. Friendly bartenders who are always willing to offer a taste and their opinion on a particular beer, the Pour Farm is a great place to have a pint (or three) and enjoy their homemade menu featuring sandwiches and appetizers. Good stuff!

New Bedford's downtown is beginning its resurgence back to the days of old. Fortunately, this place can fill the niche for the best craft beers in the area.
There are 24 taps and one (sometimes) cask, and the menus are printed daily due to a constant change in the kegs.

I love the fact that on any given day, I find about 2-3 different brews that are rare and unique and I would never be able to find if it weren't for the Pour Farm.

If you order off the food menu, I personally recommend the Cubano, a pulled pork sandwich with ham, cheese, and a spicy pickle that is amazing.

A nice establishment, and real easy to find. I stopped in on a Tuesday around seven p.m. and it was crowded. Luckily there was an open table.

There was twenty four beers on tap with majority of them being local or regional beers. The night I was there they had a good amount of obscure beers from MA, most of which I had not heard of. Always great to find new local beers. You can also get sampler of four beers for ten dollars. A pretty decent bottle list as well. Overall a good selection.

Service was prompt for the most part and attentive despite how busy it was. Nice staff in general.

Food is great here. Some of the best bar food I have had.

Overall this is a really nice spot in New Bedford and I recommend stopping here.

The Pour Farm takes the cake for local pubs for me and my buds.

The selection is always fantastic, with a constant rotation of new brews and breweries. The service is top notch and all of the bartenders are willing to not only let you try a new brew, but will often help with a well-guided suggestion. A "bar" where the bartenders actually try and learn the beers?...what a concept.

If you happen to go early for dinner, be VERY surprised at the selection of some great meals and apps, as well as some creative and delicious specials. I try and make dinner here at least 2-3 times a month.

If you are in the city and want a beer, head to the Pour Farm Tavern and bring your drinking shoes...You'll be happy you did.

Awesome selection of delicious craft brews. Great personality of staff and very helpful with selcting the right brew for you. Only sat at the bar but they have a cool outside setup. Easy to find place with great prices and selections for someone with a palat for different brews. Parking can be a bit hard to find on the wekend, but thats expected in the city. Also they have no problems with letting you try something first before you commit to buy that pint. They actually reccomend and push you to try it beforehand if you havent before which I thought was helpful with some.

Visited her on Saturday afternoon about 2PM, so the atmosphere was probably not what most people will experience. When we went we were the only ones there, but some others trickled in. The inside bar was typical stools and tv with a couple of high tables. They have a gated outdoor area with tables and grass right outside the building, and we sat there for a late lunch. It was very relaxing. The service was very attentive, nice, and knowledgeable. I believe there were 24 beers on tap with a good selection including, Firestone-Walker, Founders, Just Beer, and Southern Tier being among the highlights. I do like how their website was kept up to date with what was being currently served. I checked it out earlier in the day. What makes the Pour Farm a must stop is the food. Everytime I am in New Bedford, I will stop here. I had the most amazing falafel. My wife had a cuban sandwich, and we split a humus platter. There were plenty of other more traditional options like burgers and chicken as well. My mouth was watering. Despite having world class beer, I could not get enough of the food. This has got to be right up there with the all time best food at a bar that I have had. It is not just good food for a bar. The Pour Farm makes a perfect place to have an inexpensive and tasty meal while enjoying a great craft brew. My wife is an occasional beer drinker, but I will have no problem convincing her to stop here again.

This pub is a treat. You get a solid rotation of beers on tap, so even regulars have to check the menu before ordering. The bottle list is small enough to know that your beer is fresh and wide enough to fit any flavor mood you may be in.

The food is FANTASTIC. We're not talking about basic bar burgers, fried anythings - this is a great stand-alone menu that even a teetotaler would walk through the doors for.

Prices are fair and reasonable, the bar staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the owner is a hoot; Craig is often seen mixing it up with the patrons and truly enjoying his establishment.

It's the kind of place that you want to come back to again and again.

Oh, I don't want to forget the Mug Club. If you drink 100 beers, ANY 100 beers, you get a mug that holds a larger than average pour of anything on tap. The mugs are made by a local artisan and are actually quite nice. I'm working on mine right now and I am looking forward to the day I've got one sitting behind the bar!

Additionally, the bar is a rotating gallery for local artists. Can't leave that bit out either!

In short, the Pour Farm is a great place for a bite, a pint and a few hours with friends and soon-to-be friends. Don't miss this when you come to the whaling city!
