Cool sports bar with nice tap selection! From Bud light to Stone IPA, they have something for everyone. The bartender has a good knowledge of the beers on tap. Basically lots of different IPA's on tap with some wheat, stouts and lagers. Wings are the best in the area.

Another frequent Amherst stop during my days at UMASS and in Northampton.

Upon entering you get a the vibe of a total sports bar, and truthfully that is what it is, a good one though. They have all the games playing on many TVs around the ceiling. Both a big dining area and a good amount of seats around the bar.

I have never had a problem with beer or food here, it is always good or great. I wouldn't expect the best glassware but pints are always nice. Service is always quick and nice, fast pub food and most importantly WINGS. This is the original "Wings Over" franchise and probably the best. They have great sauce flavors for anyones palate. I have also had appetizers that come in hefty portions and are also tasty, don't bring the healthy eating type here. Beer selection is around 24 taps. They have the macros for that crowd as well as many good seasonals and local staples. I have seen things such as Breakfast Stout, Pumking, Berkshire brews, Sam Adams, Weihenstephaner, Ayinger, Coors, Bud etc. A well rounded selection but don't expect one-offs or rares.

Great Wings with sauces from mild to very hot. Good beer selection and a nice place to see a game, if you don't mind hoards of college kids. Good overall prices for food and beer.

I've been here a few times now. Small sports bar/restaurant vibe, pretty much always packed and huge TV's everywhere. About 5 minutes from U-Mass so definitely a big college crowd. This place is famous for their wings, and they are indeed excellent. As someone who loves spicy food, I can say their "Afterburner" buffalo wings are some of the hottest and tastiest things I've eaten in recent memory. Lots of different flavors and size options for wings, other food is available, I've had mozarella sticks but nothing else. Their beer selection is what surprised me - 20+ taps with some great choices, all of them American I think. Some good taps I've had or seen include Racer 5, Hop Rod Rye, Choklat, Nugget Nectar, a few local Berkshire offerings. They also have Sierra Nevada Pale Ale pints for $4, and the usual Bud/Bud Light/Guinness/Blue Moon. Service has always been friendly, prices are good, for a little over $10 I can always leave satisfied with a plate of good wings and a pint of good beer.

went to the Hangar for the 2nd time last night.

The sports bar like atmosphere of this place is awesome. Very warm, welcoming and friendly. Their staff are wonderful, quick and nice.

I was surprised at the amount of craft beers that they had on tap. I was glad to see that they had lagunita's IPA, Harpoon IPA, Racer 5 IPA along with a few others I can't remember but the selection was pretty decent. Better than what I'm used to back in CT.

This place is the place for wings. Cannot be beat. Both their regular and boneless wings are amazing, more than enough flavors to choose from and you definitely will not go hungry there.

Good beer, great food, awesome atmosphere. Can't wait to go again.

Small sports bar. It's pretty much packed around the clock. Can be raucous at times, but a good sports bar should be. Plenty of televisions on which to watch the game. It was recently renovated to include a few new plush booths. A very welcome addition. Service is pretty good, as is quality. The wings are outstanding, perhaps the best I've had. If you are one of those wackos that likes face-melting hot sauce, this may not be the place for you. I am not into hot stuff, and even I can stomach their hottest varieties of wings. There are about 20 or so different sauces to choose from, however, and almost all of them are delicious. Honey bbq and honey mustard are the best. I highly recommend the plump, juicy boneless wings. Other options for food include nachos, ribs, fries, burgers, wraps, etc. Now for the beer. They have very recently re-vamped their beer selection, and I must say, it is fairly impressive for a wings joint. Founders Centennial IPA on tap, plus some imported favorites like Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout. Macros and Guinness also abound. In truth, I come to this place for the wings, not the beer. The addition of more craft beer only adds to the awesomeness. Perfect place to watch a game with the guys (or girls). If you are in Amherst, you must eat here and at Antonio's at some point. Best cheap fare around.

EDIT: I just recently made another trip up to the Hangar, and the tap menu is continuing to evolve. Founders Breakfast Stout and Weihenstephaner Hefeweizen on tap (and served in the proper glassware)? Hell yeah! I'm bumping up my selection score a little bit. My original rating of the Hangar was a B. This has moved it up to an A-.
