Came here on a couple of times, once after work and once for lunch. Restaurant has a very open atsmosphere. Sat at the "U" shaped bar. Very impressive tap list featuring 36 micros and a dozen or so macro bottle offerings. Selections ranged from regional to west coast, belgian, german and UK. I was told that they rotate the list regularly. A cask ale engine is set up and should be operational in about a month. Four, 5 oz. beer sample paddles are also available.
Food menu consisted of appetizers, soups, salads, specialty fries, sandwiches, burgers and entrees. Selections varied across the board.
On my first visit, I tried a Belgian sample paddle consisting of Tripel Karameliet, Piraat IPA Triple, Kwak and Dupont Saison. Ordered a chicken quesadilla which was good.
On my second visit, I had a Stone Ruination, Arcadia Big Dick's Old Ale and Eel River Climax. Ordered a grilled chicken panini that was very good.
I definitely recommend this restaurant/beer bar and I plan on going back.

Stopped in yesterday (18MAR17) with older daughter Caitlin for lunch. Glad we did!

Entering through a very small foyer, there are 20+ tables and booths to the left of the bright, square-shaped room. Ahead was a rectangular U-shaped bar anchored to the rear wall. We park at the bah for our grub and grog. The place was loud a raucous, a mix of great classic rock and lots of laughter and BSing from what seemed like a very regular clientele.

They advertise 36 craft drafts, and they offered a great selection. Had lots of domestic stuff from near (Notch, Night Shift, Wormtown, Allagash) and far (Oskar Blues, Stone, Founders, Knee Deep) plus some Belgians, Germans and Irish stuff. They have a great variety of food offerings, from typical pub-grub burgers and sammiches to great steak or seafood offerings to their odd-takes on mac & cheese. Our burgers/sammiches were huge and quite tasty.

Topping this off was a fantastic bar staff that both took our shit and gave it back, all the while giving each other a good-natured hard time. We both felt very comfortable here and will def be back.

Prosit!

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.
