I came here while working in the area for the week. I saw a thread about this place earlier in the week and figured it would be worth the stop.
A: Definitely still has the feel of that old irish bar that it used to be but with the cahlk boards behind the bar listing out the beer tap selections. Down home, local place that you want to visit.
Q: I had some really good beer while there and when speaking with the owner, he stated to me that he wouldnt serve anything in the craft beer that he wouldnt drink himself.
S: I started out with a bartender named Bob but ended up with the owner himself, both guys very friendly, outgoing, and willing to chat beer and the thoughts about said beers.
S: 25 taps with a wide array of styles but mainly focuses on local craft beers and/or NY state beers. It was a great place to visit to try out 4 beers that were local and all very good.
F: Frozen Pizzas...need I say more. In the owners defense, he knows that his pizzas arent all that great and encourages people to order out and have food delivered. At least he knew his limits and can appreciate that...but I wanted to throw my money at him anyways.
V: I gave it a low value rating because they are onyl charging $4 per pint/goblet all summer long...normally the prices are 5-6 pints which are still resonable for the area and especially for the decent beers they are bringing in.
Overall, solid place, cool guys, great beer selection especially if you want to try the local craft beer out (and not just Blue Point or Brooklyn). I really like the place and would recommend it to anyone from within or afar.

Shared many pints here. Awesome that my parents babysat the bartender. Good to be in my home town! Insane tap selection (bcs coffee, lagunitas sucks, six point, port Jeff, great southbay, allagash, and barrier). Friendly staff, plus very knowledgable. Good Irish bar ambiance. No music, lots of sports on tv.

I really like what they did to the place. The beer selection is awesome and there are TVs everywhere. It was impossible to miss any football (except when I was trying to pick my next beer).
Iím going back, definitely.
