i may be alittle bias since i come here all the time.
they usually have a solid line-up of beer, always something for everyone no matter what style of beer you are into
the menu isnt big and i like that, the can concentrate on the quality of food they send out,food is good, and very reasonably priced
even though i really never sit at a table the bartenders all very knowledgeable about the beer and food and very friendly
the atmosphere is one of the main reasons that keeps me coming back, good people and conversation equals a good time

Modern bar/restaurant feel, bar seats about 20 with tables along the back wall, separate dining area. Solid craft selection - 20 taps. Friendly barmaid. Did not eat there.

Great place that puts most of their focus into 2 things; burgers and beers. Every burger on the menu is fantastic and the beer list is a constant rotation of all kinds of beer.

Been here so many times. Right in the heart of downtown New Haven on Temple Street across from the Omni Hotel entrance. Smaller sized location that gets packed very easily, broken up into two parts: sitting/dining area and bar area with hightop tables. Bar seats about 15-20. Food is mostly burgers, but very well crafted, cajun fries are awesome. Solid rotating tap list of about 15 beers plus stuff in bottles and occasionally a cask offering. Worth a trip if you're in the area, by far the best tap list around given the smaller number of taps they have.

passing through New Haven so popped in and was pleasantly surprised. Not the largest selection i seen but everything on the list was worth the visit. Burgers were out of this world. I eat tons of burgers so it's rare that i get one that wows me, Cooked to perfection RAREinside and blackened on the outside. Staff was quick and friendly and knew there beer. Will gladly stop in again if im in the area,
