Atmosphere is ok, like the guy below said you can usually find some shady characters over there, I don't really go because of the atmosphere, but its ok.

Quality is pretty average, not much glassware for specific types.

Service is ok, every time I order a rarer brew like say chimay or weihenstephaner they always try and fix how I am saying it when I know im saying it haha, didn't bump down the grade, just saying.

Selection is pretty good, I think they have over 150 beers, mostly lagers but you can get some stuff at pretty decent prices.

Value is pretty good, $4-$5 for more expensive imports.

a- it really depends when you go, the area is ok, but sometimes the crowd can be really shady.

q- there is a nice booth side with a long bar, and then a game area on the other side. Not the cleanest place, its a bar

s-depends on the crowd, if busy, it is horrible the bar tenders tend to stay on certain people

s-huge selection, very international, but few micro brews

f- never had any, did not see anything i wanted

v- depends when you go, some days are very good like sundays half off all bottles

Selection: The Cock and Bull is one of those gimmicky bars that proudly advertises 200 plus bottles of beer. Sounds great at first but once you get in there you’ll notice that about 50% of them are pilsners/pale lagers. Still, there are enough gems to warrant a place on BeerFly for this establishment.

First and foremost, the range of nations represented in the beer list is impressive, regardless of their style. I immediately noticed selections from several Central American countries that are rarely represented. Also available are beers from often unseen Asian producers such as Singapore.

On my first visit, I stuck to Belgium, Holland, and the states drinking down a Wittekerke, a Sterkens Wit, a Dutch Guilder, and the special beer of the week, Anchor Porter. All the beers were reasonably priced at about $3 a bottle. You won’t find many high end beers here but you will find many odd beers of average quality that probably aren’t available at more than one or two other bars in the state.

Atmosphere is great. The Cock and Bull is a mecca of bar games featuring two dart boards, two billiards tables, a fussbol table, and the largest, best maintained, and most difficult shuffle puck table I have ever played on. Otherwise the place has the feel of British pub meets Green Bay tavern.

Staff was very friendly, especially after I tipped a few times. It seemed that they weren’t used to seeing a buck a beer tip so after a couple rounds they would jump to serve me. I always dig that. Also, one of the bartenders is extremely hot, which also helps in my book.

There are loads of drink specials and free pizza during happy hour every day.
