52 quality taps, wood fired thin crust pizza, blues/jazz theme and some friendly guys taking my to go pizza order and getting me a Gandhi Bot on draft while I wait. So far I'm having a great time here!

Mid sized room up front and a larger dining room to the left.Clean and well put together, without be stuffy at all. Semi-strange "bar" cuz its basically a large counter facing the pizza ovens. Large screens with the game on present but not over whelming the atmosphere.

Drafts were fresh, pizza (Clam/bacon) was super tasty. Pizza and beer-such a simple and wonderful combination.

I wish this place was closer, cuz they have a real good thing going. Beer guy told me they were about to do a DogFish event and were putting on something like 30 DFH brews on tap. Beer is being respected here.

Well worth a visit...especially if you like beer and pizza. Good place to take the kids, go with friends, with the guys to watch the game...for a date? Eh probably not the most romantic spot...

Great beer selection. Lots of variety from different regions and different styles. Flights of 4 beers available.

Happy hour gives you the many of the beers for $5. The only negative is that our server didn't mention the happy hour special, but when we asked about it, he told us they usually have a separate list of $5 beers. Since they didn't have a special list, he said any but the very high octane were available for $5, and that's what he charged us.

My teen got the "best wrap I ever had." I got the pizza with the homemade bacon bourbon marmalade. So darn good.

Love the jazzy collages on the tables.

Didn't try any, but the array of bourbon bottles was spectacular.

Would go back in a heartbeat; too bad I live so far.

Awesome beer centered restaurant, they even have 'Beer Academy' which I attended last month where they hold a class once a month showcasing lesser known beers to the general public. Got to taste Leipziger Gose, Reissdorf Kolsch, Aecht Shlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen and Eiche on tap accompanied with detailed history of each brewery and style. Then enjoyed a couple other drafts from their 52 craft beer line up. Very devoted to good beer, the team up with my LHBS and host BJCP homebrew contests regularly. Unique pizza menu, most executed very well, and always decent blues on the radio. The beer place in Fairfield County.

Good food. Service could be better at times. Food quality is excellent. Beer selection is great. Would give it a 10 overall but the service and the fact that it could be a little too cozy brings down my rating. Definately a place to consider if you're in the area. 8.5 out of 10.

I love this place.

The management (Gerard) has a passion for beer and it shows. They now have 51 taps! They rotate beers and go for quality/variety. They offer the Beer Club which is 20 bucks lifetime membership you get a nice mug and every Tuesday you can come in and get a free beer!! They send out emails to club members with the beer list. They have many specials. The food is great. They expanded early this year(?) created a game room. TVs music. They also have 'Beer Academy ' a class every month where they talk about the history of a beer type (like sason) or other angles and provide samples of those featured beers

Cons: It's not cheap, And they don't have a bar - but they have a counter.

This place is a treasure for beer lover's.

If you're:

1. In Stamford, CT.
2. Love beer.
3. Love Neapolitan-style pizza...

Go here.

I love it, my friends love it, my wife loves it, my KIDS love it... and I have a hard time selecting which beers I'm going to have. I usually get a sampler (choose any five {?} on tap) because I can't make up my mind.

DVDs of blues artists are usually playing on the screens. Beer bottles line the ceiling and there is a fantastic collection of cigar box guitars tacked to the walls.

To me, that sounds like a damn fine restaurant.

Plus, the owners are good guys. They now have to put over a dozen tables outside on the sidewalk to accommodate the weekend crowds.

Oh, and the pizza is pretty good, too.

There's a reason they need more tables.

Atmosphere: For a place with such a big beer selection - you walk in and think "where the heck are they hiding everything?". It's a small and cozy place, just right lighting, and bustling. Had to wait a bit for a table for a party of 7, but still, that's a good sign. Lots of people eating and drinking - suggests right away that it's a good place.

Quality: Lots of high quality beers from the US (craft) and around the world. Went with an international crowd from a conference and the Germans and French in the group were surprised by what was on the walls available for partaking. The only reason why I can't give them a 5 on quality was the glasses. While mason jars are cute....they're not appropriate for the wide range of awesome beers this place has. I know they do this to keep costs low, but still, all this good beer and they serve it in mason jars...meh.

Service: As others have hinted, they don't have nearly enough staff for how busy this place is, and yet....it works out well. You don't have to wait too long which gives you enough time to talk and figure out what you want from the huge selection.

Selection: How can you go wrong with 52 taps and 100+ bottles and cans? The only gripe I had is that they provided a tap list menu, but not a bottle list menu. Still, everyone wanted something on tap (myself included) so it all worked out. I have to say the selection was amazing with something for everyone.

Food: The pizzas were all good - not traditional, but that's okay. Everything was quite tasty.

Value: I thought it was very reasonable - everyone had 2 beers and we split 3 large 16" pizzas among 7 people for $155 total. Given the selection and quality of the food, again, very reasonable in my opinion.

Overall - I can see why people rate this place so highly. I will definitely visit again when I come back to Stamford.
