This place was very close to my hotel and was recommended by the gentleman as I checked in. I got there on a Friday during happy hour. The place was very busy. I was glad to see fellow Wolverine fans here. I was in town for the Michigan vs. Connecticut football game. I sat in the bar area. The bar was full and only a couple of seats were open at tables. They had very large tables. There would be two or three people sitting at tables for 6-8. I was not a fan of this. My friend and I sat at a table designed for 6, and it was just the two of us.

We checked out the menu, and the happy hour prices were phenomenal. It was $2 off pints and $7 off one gallon beer towers. They even had certain appetizers that were only $3. I chose to have a sampler to get a feel for their beers. Most were average. A couple were good.

The bar area had a restaurant feel to it. I noticed glass mugs hanging about, so I assume they had a mug club. The waitress was friendly and a little slow, but that was do to the large crowd. I had a couple of the $3 appetizers and the sampler. My friend and I were both very happy about how little we paid. We came back the next day, too.

During a recent family excursion to Hartford, we visited this brewpub. Located in a beautiful old building, right in the center of town, this is a very inviting brewpub. The architecture, design, decoration, and general feel of the place is amazing. Beer memorabilia and great ambiance are everywhere. The beer selection was deep and varied. I had the Amber, the IPA, and the Stout. All were excellent. The service was professional and light-hearted, and would be worthy of a higher rating other than being a little slow. Food was mostly traditional, although upscale, tavern food. Well made but not really creative. All in all, this is a great brewpub and absolutely worth a visit.
