Decent restaraunt connected to a slick little craft beer store. I stopped by one day on the way home from work, and I was impressed by the 30+ tap list. They have a pretty decent and varied selection of breweries and styles on the tap list, and it appears that the taps rotate fairly regularly. The menus was pretty decent, as well, with a good variety of pub style food. Prices were very reasonable for both the brews and the grub. The bartender was not the most knowledgable of folks in terms of craft beer, but she was willing to ask if she didn't know an answer. Also, she said that the staff generally tries all the new beers as they come in, so they have a reference point for recommendations to customers. Great atmosphere in there, with a typical pub feel. Big, horseshoe shaped bar, with plenty of general open seating all around. I will absolutely make a return trip to this place.

My third trip here yesterday for lunch on a surprise day off. Big open square room with a square bar off to the right as you walk in. Local almost diner vibe with well worn booths and contractors drinking lunch. 36 taps all quality with many available at the one stop next door. Macro bottles and decent pub grub make up the rest of the menu. The 5 tap sampler is a great deal. A burger a sandwich and wings were mostly enjoyed by our group, gravy drizzled fries oh hell yeah. Service seemed attentive. Pricing is a bit high but kind of expected nowadays for a quality tap selection in the area. I'd go back.

Beer selection is diverse, quite a good selection for casual and seasoned beer drinker. Beer menu is changed/updated every two weeks for new beers to rotate in keeping each visit fresh, while still have a few menu staples. The food is outstanding, from the burgers to the specialty fries, you'll come back for more.

36 craft drafts. Most of them rotate. 1 cask. Standard pub grub, but good quality.

What can I say about this place other than AWESOME. Delicious menu (even breakfast) and amazing beer selection that consistently changes. My personal favorite is the Pork burger with apples baked right into the meat, topped with swiss and bacon and smothered in maple syrup. A ridiculous concept for a burger but one of the tastiest creations I have ever had. The place may not look like much from the outside but the food and beer are incredible.

Great Neighborhood type pub. You see families having dinner here most nights. As other reviews have stated there are plenty of big TV screens showing all the games but doesn't really come off as a sports bar destination. I think people are there for the exceptional beer selection and atmosphere and to a lesser extent the food. Not a huge place but not super small either. Decent sized bar in a U shape. Plenty of dinner seating and a number of pub tables along the back window.

Food is more than serviceable for pub type fare. Comparable to chain type pubs, I guess, not great but good usually. I do like their burgers quite a bit.

Great selection of European Import beers and very good domestic craft beers with plenty of choices on tap. I find the bartenders and waitstaff very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers and have gotten good recommendations from them.

Great selection and friendly, knowledgeable barkeeps; quite the family bar; Can't stay away from the La Merle on tap, much less the 35 others. The package store 'next door' also has a great selection (plus dart supplies and dusty, old-looking homebrew supplies)
