From outside, Damon's looks like a trailer that's had a few nice additions. Inside, however, it looks much better. The bar is separate from the family restaurant area. Darkly lit with a reasonably nice decor, it's a decent enough spot for a drink.

The tap selection was better than a chain restaurant, but not so great for a BA. IPAs included Goose Island, Thomas Hooker, and Lagunitas - the last of which came in a very cool Lagunitas Mason-type jar, so props on #properglassware. Three seasonal offerings (two of which included pumpkin), and then a ton of macro beers.

Bottled beer selection looked pretty terrible - all macro - although they could have had something better hiding out elsewhere; I enjoyed my Laggy IPA, so I didn't ask.

I ordered a bacon burger with fries; both were quite good. The menu is not huge, but it's got all the bases covered. Looks like a good spot to grab a brew with a game (I wish my local spot had Laggy and GI IPAs on tap), but it's not a place you're going to visit to experience some good craft beer.

Sadly, Thomas Hooker was the only on-tap offering from CT. That was definitely disappointing.
