This was an interesting place. Stopped by for a pint (the pizza smelled AMAZING but I didn't have any). Tap list was solid but not spectacular. 20 or so selections featuring the likes of Founders, Maine, Smuttynose, Alagash and others. No HF or Lawson's but they did have Heady cans.
Atmosphere was pretty cool. There are pool tables and TVs if you want to watch the game. The servers are a lot of fun and knowledgeable about beer. Would go back, but will get a slice of pizza next time.

Do you enjoy those off-the-wall places that can be described as, say, "very low key?" If so, then it's off to Manhattan Pizza, which is a pizzeria/beer bar that invites all ages - though mostly of college age, of which your truly is not - to enjoy hearty, but reasonably priced Italian cuisine (pizza, subs, calzone and appetizers) alongside a nice selection of beer. This being Vermont, the many regional quaffs are also represented, including Rock Art, Switchback and Long Trail.
It does have a rustic appearance; the bar area is a large single room with several packed tables spread amidst wobbly high tops. In the back, there is a pool table - this is quite prevalent in Vermont. While Manhattan Pizza is about as far from intimate and romantic as one can get, it still provides for a comfortable evening of great beer, decent food and some well chosen music.
Since there is no table service, you must order from end of the bar; a number is shortly placed on your table, and soon the food arrives. Did I mention that it was "low key?" In any case, it is much better than the Three Needs, which was the next stop. (See Review.)

I've been here a handful of times now and it's really a decent place. If you're getting a pizza they're usually pretty good, I haven't had anything else but for a drunken pizza it's awesome. For what they are, they've got quite an awesome beer selection. A variety of your standard macros (pbr, bud light, etc) but they also usually have some good craft brews (rock art, rogue, trout river, long trail, etc) mainly VT beers which is nice but the occasional larger out of state micro.
They play their music kinda loud for me, but they've got pool a couple arcade games, big screen TVs with ESPN (It's real fun when there's a Sox or Pats game on). I think it's a pretty decent bar to go with a couple buddies, have a beer and a slice or two.
Now if you're in the area, and you're a BA... skip it, go two blocks away to American flatbread, you'll get better 'za and much better brews.
