Located about three blocks from the hockey arena, on the "other side" of Mirror Lake. Locals know it as "PJ's." Looks sort of like a cross between an Alpine lodge and a church from the outside. Limited parking in front, plenty of on-street parking in the area although finding a spot can be difficult during peak season.

Two levels - the downstairs is very rustic and dark, with an L shaped bar. The TV was tuned to the Weather Channel ("Look! It's 75 below on Mt. Washington!"), which I got a kick out of. The upstairs is very Adirondack Lodge - like, with wooden walls and plenty of tables around a U-shaped bar. Both areas have a warm, welcoming vibe, which was very much appreciated since the high temp that day was -3 degF. Six beers on tap, and the servers are very knowledgable about them. Bar service both upstairs and downstairs was fast and friendly. The centerpiece is the outstanding Ubu ale, a 7% garnet colored session beer of the first order. Scary drinkable. They also make an American IPA that will please hopheads, and the seasonal Frostbite Pale Ale was getting a few nods of approval from those I talked to. They only fill their growlers, and rather than fills do an exchange - hand them the empty, get another out of the ice cold case by the door, and pay your $6. Aside - $6 for a growler of Ubu Ale has got to be one of the best deals on the planet.

I did not have a chance to try the food this time, but my sister in law says that the food is generally very good. The portions looked pretty good from what I could see.
