How to grade this? It's a bit more moneyed and hip than the main location, and therefore the place's vibe didn't quite coincide with my own. It still felt friendly and all, just not as overwhelmingly friendly as the downtown pub.

They seemed to have a wider selection of guest taps but not quite as large a selection of Town Hall taps. There were no firkin beers when we stopped by, either. But, still, you could drink Masala Mama, and that's very important.

The food is even better than Town Hall's, which is to say it was frickin' amazing. Several veggie/pescetarian options, all of which actually had flavor. They were packed but the waitress, host, and bartender were all very friendly. And, really, there's not much to say about the tap that can't be said about the regular Town Hall. I'd still check out the main location first, but this place is pretty slick.

This is a wonderful neighborhood place that sells beer from the Town Hall microbrewery. Its a very casual, friendly vibe. They feature 8 of their beers, 4 nitro taps, 4 ciders, 3 cask beers, 8 guest casks, and 10 bottled beers. They serve a wide variety of bar foods - sandwiches and things deep fried. You go here for the beer - the food is a little better at their brewery downtown and the downtown location has more outdoor seating but this is still very nice.

Visited on a Sunday night. Slow at 9:30. Looked just like regulars in the place. Sat at the bar.

Vibe - A townie bar if it wasn't known all over the US by BAs. Dark and worn inside. The place has windows and a garage door that open up the entire bar to the street/sidewalk and a small outdoor patio. This time of year it was wide open and inviting. Patio closes early though during the week – did not get to sit outside :-( Overall a great old fashion bar in an old fashion town but with a new twist. 4.25

Service - Friendly. Bartender was appropriately distant. 4

Selection - Good house beers and a good selection of guest beers. 4

Quality - Different glasses, temperature was good, three beer engines. 4.5

Food – I ate the Heidelberg burger. It was great! Fries were crispy - 4.25

Price - 20oz house beers for $5.50 fantastic compared to DC and NY. Two big beers and a burger and fries for about $20 (excluding tip) was excellent. - $
