Anyplace in the US that has four active beer engines is outstanding for me. The Wharf Rat had a delicious English IPA (which had a nice American hop kick), a quaffable red and pale, and a winter warmer that was spot-on--no lame spices, just the right mix of malt and hop. I enjoyed these four cask ales so much I didn't bother with the food--which if it looked better I might have. Not that it looked bad, and not that the staff didn't work very hard on the pizzas I saw made, but it just didn't look worth the distraction from the great beer. The service was outstanding as well, which we all know can make or break a place. Sean made sure I had plenty of water to "stay hydrated", was well-informed, and made the place feel warm and welcoming.
