Visited mid-week in the afternoon during the Arts and Ideas Festival, after enjoying a lecture on Jackson Pollack at the Yale Art Gallery. We were immediately seated by the hostess (it wasn't busy at all). Got a seat by the windows, looking directly across Crown Street at that New Haven icon, Louis' Lunch. We ordered a flight of beers, which arrived in minutes, then ordered a salad and a pizza.

The flight of five came in fairly large samples, plenty to share. Started with the Toasted Blonde - very light, not much 'toasted' flavor. Next was the Pale Ale - nice hoppy taste, moderate bitterness, clean finish. Followed that with the Am 'bar' Ale - sweet with lots of malt. Up next was the Damn Good Stout - lived up to it's name! Lots of flavors of coffee & chocolate, but not overwhelming. The last sample was the seasonal specialty brew, a Rye IPA. Not bad, but hard to discern the rye taste.

Based on the flight I decided to go with a glass of the Pale Ale, although I would say that the Stout was the star; just not the right choice for our meal.

Both the salad and pizza were fantastic! We had a white pizza with artichokes, which arrived quickly. Thin crust pizza, slightly charred - the both of us agreed it was as good as Pepe's (without the wait!). The medium was quite big, more than enough for the two of us (we hadn't eaten all day and it was already 2:30, so we were definitely hungry); I would love to see the size of a large pie!

Our server was attentive and prompt thru out the meal, and the hostess checked on us to make sure everything was satisfactory. We enjoyed the brewpub ambience, and looking out to the street scene, although Crown Street isn't the best people watching spot.

There are a lot of dining choices in New Haven, but not brew pubs with great pizza and beer! We will definitely be back!
