Visited a few times with co-workers - it's practically the only beer bar within a 30-minute drive in any direction.

Atmosphere is the same as most other BBC's. Faux British pub vibe, though the bar stools are comfy. Maybe because it's fairly new, and it's in the Merrimack Valley, but most of the patrons are drinking BMC <sigh>

From eating at other BBC's, I wouldn't bother eating at this one. I think everything comes out of a box/jar/bottle/bag....not alot of scratch cooking done here.

Selection is OK - lots of flagships and macros, some assorted gems like Nashoba seasonals. The printed list and the chalkboard NEVER match the tap handles. Lots of British beers....Fuller's Porter hits the spot on occasion, but Brit beers aren't my bag. Mostly I'd stick to a Mayflower IPA or Stone AB (resonably priced @ $6.50 for a 20-oz imperial pint.

Where things fall apart is the service. I don't ask for much - most times I know better than the servers, even at the better Boston beer bars, and just expect a basic beer knowledge from staff. However, the teeny-bopper servers here know NOTHING about beer. I've witnessed:

- customer being told that they shouldn't order a Delerium Tremens because it's "gross"

- customer asked for an IPA and was given a sample of Rogue Dead Guy

- customer said they wanted an equivalent to a Sam Adams and was given a Newcastle

- customer clearly asked for a Mayflower IPA but I witnessed a pouring of the Mayflower Pale when the IPA was also available.

I guess I would go back here to hang out with work friends, but isn't a place I would frequent and definitely not eat here.
