I went to the Wood-n-Tap last night with a bunch of friends. We had a good time and sat in the bar area for a couple of hours. Nice cozy feel for an atmosphere with numerous flat screen TV's to watch the games. I think they also have the NFL Sunday Ticket here too, which would really make this place a viable option to watch some NFL action and get a buzz on.

We shared some apps and I'd say the menu overall is slightly better than your average pub food. I had the Bar Bites, which are their burger sliders made with angus beef. You can also get bison, chicken or turkey bites instead. It's always good to have options. The burgers were tasty and the sweet potato fries were really flavorful as well. They come with kethcup and also an original fluff type dipping sauce with a hint of lemon and maple syrup sweetness.

We ordered the Engine #11 Firehouse Wings that were excellent. Some of the best hot wings I've had in some time. They use a habenero based sauce or rub, so expect some serious heat. The part I really appreciated though was that the wings had alot of meat and fried perfectly sans messy buffalo sauce that you typically get smothered on your wings. This was more of a spicy rub or seasoning. Nevertheless, I can't wait to have those wings again.

In terms of beer selection, expect some wonderful drafts like Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale, Long Trail Double Bag, Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA and Ten Penny with other solid drafts like Brooklyn Lager, BBC Steel Rail, Magic Hat #9 and Blue Point Toasted Lager. I think there are about 20 drafts and the rest of the options are pretty mainstream. Good bottle selection too that offers Sam Smith Oatmeal Sout, Hazed & Confused and Ommegang Abbey Ale. Beware though some of the prices on the bottles can be overpriced.

All in all I'd say this is a solid pub in the area. A place with good pub food and a healthy selection of craft beers on tap.

Located on the corner of rt 83 and rt 30 in Vernon. Next to Anthony's Pizza. Nice new design and setup. The parking lot sucks and can be a pain in the ass.

The place just opened after Thanksgiving and very clean. I like the bar set up, the bartop is along the back wall as you walk in with 4 or 5 tap stations spread out along the whole bar. They feature 12 - 15 decent beers on tap and even more in coolers behind the bar.

Great place to watch a game, there are flat-screen tvs all over the place. The service has been good, but the place gets pretty busy so service can slow sometime. Most of the service is pretty good looking so I don't mind.

It's a chain with a casual atmosphere serving American style fare. Really good appetizers and pub food.

At the moment new Vernon location seems to have a better beer lineup than the other locations. Since it's the only place in town with a decent craft beer list, you'll find me there often.

here's the tap list right now:

Brooklyn - Winter Lager
North Coast - Redseal
Sierra Nevada - Celebration
Blue Point - Toasted Lager
Dogfish - 60 min IPA
Hoegaarden
Magic Hat - #9
Long Trail - Double Bag
Harpoon - IPA
Sam Adams - Winter Lager
Opa-Opa - Red Rock
miller
coors
bud
stella
guiness

May be a couple more in there.

bottles:

corsendonk
orval
chimay
avery - maharajah
avery - white rascal
anchor xmas
wyerbacher - double simcoe ipa
magic hat - jinx
sierra nevada - pale
samuel smith -
Allagash

Plus way more that I can't remember.

Cheers!
