vibe: 3.25 | quality: 4 | service: 3.75 | selection: 3.5 | food: 3.75

Typical sports bar atmosphere: small, a little loud. Several TVs. Not a place to go to enjoy a beer quietly, but a good spot for sports.

And yet, there's a great craft beer draft list! PBR was the only non-craft option. Three Ommegang taps, 2011 Brooklyn Monster Ale barleywine, and others. Decent glassware and good beer.

Service was excellent. It's a small place, so that helps, but the bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly.

Small-ish beer selection (under a dozen taps), but again, very good selection, for what it is. Better than most in the area, and you really would have to go to a dedicated craft beer bar to find better nearby.

Food was very good. I had a burger and fries. The menu selection is not huge, but everything looked good, and there were some interesting items.

Prices were very good.

As of today, this is the only place in New London with an extensive list of craft pours. The beer selection is great but the food is really meh... Which makes it hard for me to convince my non beer snob friends to do our regular pub nights there. I also wish they'd have a publicly updated list of their beers on tap posted on any of their social media pages. We tend to drive all the way to Westerly because Malted Barley posts a list of their draft rotations on a daily basis. Good potential...

Best craft beer bar in New London. Great food, and my favorite bar tenders!
