I was told that the Kclinger's Publick House location was open again under a new name recently. Since I live only about 10-12 minutes from the place I thought I would stop in. I invited a couple of buddies I served in the Army with in Germany to have a few drinks here. The inside isn't much different other than they have a 'sports bar' theme with arcade games as you walk in now. They are calling the downstairs the 'Beer Cave' and it was closed since we were there on a Sunday.

The atmosphere is comfortable - it was pretty empty when we got there around twelve so we had our choice of seating. The service was friendly and they took pictures for us since it had been more than a dozen years since we have seen each other. They are advertising live music which is a good sign and the menu has a pretty decent selection of pub grub including over 20 variteties of hot wings -Teriyaki, Garlic herb, Barbecue etc. The food was served hot and was standard fare, not really great, but cooked well and satiated my hunger.

I consider the selection to be good because while they don't carry a multitude of craft taps they still have a better selection than any bar or pub within a 10 mile radius I can think of. They carry locals like Troegs - 6 taps and Mad Elf in bottles when I peered into the cooler. Dogfish head, Blue Moon, Samuel Adams were present - nothing too adventureous, but they have the usual suspecs- Harp, Guiness, Smithwicks and Shiner Bock which isn't very common in the area. There are bottle options too - they had Black Chocolate stout and Smuttynose Finest Kind as well as Bud American Ale, the aforementioned Mad Elf. You can find something to quaff - for me it was Noble Pils and it has potential for being a craft beer location if a little Beer Advocating is done.

The prices were very reasonable and the have Troegs tuesday specials with very cheap pints. You won't really be let down unless you have high expectations for the place, after all they just opened. I will return to see if they stick with Miller, Molson Coors, Amstel etc or venture could go either way.
