Had to visit the "high temple" of brewing. Sunday afternoon was the setting. They had six beers on tap. I had the Halloween and the best bitter, both exceptional. The food was your standard pub. The bar was a mix of wood and brick. As we looked at a mural at the entrance, my wife wondered what a naked women had to do brewing. The Pats game was on the tv's but the sound in the bar was bad 60's music. When I asked one of the surley barkeeps to turn on the sounds of the game (everyone was watching) she replied: "we are not a sports bar". Good beer, bad staff.

Foods okay, beers are what they are. Decent place to watch the game.

On my trip to Portland, I decided to stop by Gritty McDuff's. Upon entering the establishment, there is a bar area with a downstairs, an entrance to sit out in the back cobblestone street, and a long dining room area where you can sit yourself on long refectory tables. The atmosphere of the place was definitely social in what appeared to be a classic pub-style environment, with wood and brick making up the interior designs of the place. I ordered the fish and chips for my supper, and although the portions seemed small, I was satisfied by the meal. For drinks, I had the Original Pub Style beer and then the Black Fly Stout. The Pub Style beer was my favorite of the two. Service was a bit slow and our waitress took awhile for some drink orders. However, I noticed she was the only wait staff in our room, so that may have been the main problem.

I have always liked Gritty's beers, so it was a fun to finally eat at their pub in Portland
