Thanks to Deaune for adding this bar that used to be Jesters on High Street in Pottstown.

A: This is a real bar, a nice big center bar is on the right as you enter, and a nice area for tables is on the left. Nicely laid out, easy to move around, bright cheery and lots of TVs. My only gripe is cigarette smoke. This should be a non-smoking bar since they do serve a decent amount of food, not sure why they don't follow the laws or how they get around it.

Q: I only had beer, so I'm reviewing that. They had a nice tap selection and the quality of beers was decent for Pottstown.

S: Very good, but I sat at the bar so I got waited on immediately. Still, it was busy and the bartender was very nice.

S: Decent, especially for Pottstown. They have Victory HopDevil on tap all the time, plus they had DFH 60 Minute and Sam Adams seasonal. They also have another 5 taps or so of BMC, but that's ok.

F: Did not try.

V: Good, beers were under $ 5 for craft.

Overall I would really like this place if it were not for the smoking. I would no doubt stop in now and again to grab a fresh draft HopDevil, but the smoking is stopping me. Now that PA has gone mostly smoke free, I can't stand anyplace that allows it still.
