Best place to get a pint and an excellent meal. Staff is amazing and Sunday brunch is best in town. The Sausage and Biscuits is second to none. Highly Recommend.

What can be said about Mikro that hasn't already been said. Basically nothing. Owner Mike has done a fantastic job; the staff, in general has been the same group of individuals for a few years (which I suspect means it is a good place to work), and the craft brew selection is amazing. Sometimes I wish they had a bit more of a regular beer menu, i.e. a few staples that would always be on the menu; but on the other hand, I love just walking in and being surprised. As for the food, it is simple, relatively refined and tasty.

While searching for some dinner a friend and I stumbled onto this gem! We were in Connecticut for work and found this place to be super packed and brimming with customers. Happens they were having an Allagash tap take-over with nearly 15 taps of Allagash and a few more with variuos others from the area. People were very friendly and bartenders and staff knew their beers. Most of the time they have a local Berkshire Brewing Co. Coffee House Porter on nitro tap but aparantly they had just run out so had an Old Rasputin nitro. Very nice establishment and hope to return to the area for work to re-visit this place . Great Time.

Read about this place on Beer Advocate and had to try it. Nice looking joint that oozes fresh beer. Walked in, not crowded and found a seat at the bar. They were running a special event, the 8 beers of Hanaukah. I'm not Jewish, but, when in Tel aviv...selected the very non-kosher Bahn Mi sandwich. Delicious. Asked the bar keep for a recommend draft and he suggested the He'brew Hop Manna. Perfect foil to the Bahn Mi. Would have loved to have sampled more but had to have a clear head. Wish that I had a bar like this near where I live. I would be there all the time. Great little spot in need of multiple revisits. Try it, you'll like it.

always packed and for good reason. food is fantastic.
its a treat for us to go here. we go a few times a year. coast 100 bucks every time we go. which is why its a nice treat.
my only negative is community seating. its your option to or not to. but as a service industry worker myself i feel that it greatly takes away from the romanticism of going out. but again if they did not offer it packed would be an understatement. Don't get me wrong, if you have never been you need to go! in fact you need to go a lot till you try every last bit of food on the menu!

Mikro has an impressive craft beer selection for a place that is in a strip mall. Approximately 20 taps that constantly rotate and are featured on a large chalkboard. Price range was on par with most other craft beer pours ($5 and up depending on what you order). Went for Sunday brunch. The food was absolutely delicious and paired well with the beers on tap. This establishment is small and filled up quickly (folks were waiting for a table within 30 minutes of opening). Overall, I would recommend giving Mikro a try. I plan to return.
