Typical sports bar, similar to buffalo wild wings. Atmosphere isn't great, which kind of reflects being on the Pike. They actually have two bars, one inside and one sort of inside but with the option of opening windows to outside. So a definite plus on nice days during the spring and summer. I think they try and emphasize craft beer, judging by a big chalk sign with their options as you walk in the door. However, most people drink BMC since the happy hour specials are mostly for those products.

Beer selection is solid for Montgomery County. About 30 craft beers on tap, nothing too exciting, but solid overall. Locals such as Flying Dog, Heavy Seas along with Goose Island, Allagash White, Stone, DFH and even some imports like Palm and Hoegaarden. Beers tasted fairly fresh, so I'm assuming they go through kegs at a decent rate.

Service is meh. Bartenders don't really know shit about beer. I asked for a Atlantic lager and got a Raging Bitch (the beer) instead, not that i was complaining. Prices are decent for the area, between 5-7 bucks a beer. Atmosphere picks up during the normal hours. They have about 6 TVs situated within the bar and a number more around the establishment. Nice place to watch some sports. Didn't try the food, but didn't look that amazing. Similar to most sports bars, although it looks like they try and do more "restaurant" grub as well including prime rib, pasta dishes and fish.

Overall, not bad considering being situated on the Pike and located in the shithole known as Montgomery County. I work within walking distance, so not a bad place to relax and drink some solid beer.
