Stopped in on a Tuesday late afternoon. Tap selection was weak (MBC Lunch kicked the day before I was there) and prices were higher than I find at craft beer places in Boston. Clown Shoes Galactica was priced as a $9 pint, but served in a 12 oz. pour. No A/C and no TV for the World Cup, the place kind of looks like a dump to me. Old restaurant/lodge kinda thing behind a dumpy hotel (short-term apartments?) on Rte. 1 in NH. Not worth seeking out and I do not understand the praise this place gets. Didn't try the food. The guy behind the bar was nice.

But hey, they've got a summer cornhole tournament about to start up.

Stopped here for lunch while exploring the New England coast. We heard about it from a salesmen we met at a Liquor store named Kappys. He said the name stood for the ingredients in beer. W for water, H for hops, Y for yeast and M for malt. Atmosphere was nice yet casual. the location is behind a motel so very secluded. Quality was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful, wait time was reasonable. Beer selection could use some improvment but was decent. I had the fish and chips and it was the best I've had on this vacation. Huge piece of fish with crispy batter and a wonderful ginger tartar sauce. Best tartar sauce I've had ever. The guys had hamburgers and said they were delcious. Value was very reasonable.

I can't say enough about WHYM, it has everything a craft beer cafe should. Alex and Gretchin are great owners, very knowledgeable and personable, and truly have a must-visit establishment. Over the last few years we've hopped around from place to place trying to find a respectable mix of good craft beer and good food, WHYM has neither. In fact, they have a great mix of craft beers and great food! Put that into a great atmosphere, comfortable lounging, fireplace, music and NO TVs, and you've got yourself a place you'll want to visit regularly. Sure there are times when things are busy and hectic or the service slows a bit, but when you're in that environment, there's no need to rush! WHYM hosts unbelievable beer dinners and fun trivia nights, also.

Honestly, I haven't found anything that I dislike about WHYM, other than it's location not being across the street from my house!
