Beer selection is amazing for a tiny campus pub. Setup is outstanding, nice big area in the middle with the bar, pool table in one room, fireplace in another, large upstairs section as well. Home to trivia on Tuesday nights. Value is exceptional. And like Cheers, everybody knows your name. The Little Pub is one of the best parts of a great school, always worth stopping in on Alumni Weekend.

I havenít heard of other colleges that have a place like this. Directly on campus, the Little Pub is a beautiful, two-level building with a small bar, several seating rooms, a pool table and all kinds of Hamilton College and Adirondack ephemera decorating the walls. As others have noted, the beer selection is exceptional, in particular when you consider the bar is located in Clinton, NY. In addition, the prices are ridiculously cheap. (Iíve heard the College subsidizes the pub but I havenít had this confirmed.) Pints of Utica Club for under $3 per pint, top range beers $5 per pint. The pub also hosts musical acts throughout the year. I wish I had taken advantage of this place more when I was a student at Hamilton, but now whenever I go back to visit I make a point of stopping in. (Fun fact: the íLittleí in the name refers to the Little family, major benefactors of the college, and not to the size of the pub.)

76 AMBIANCE 4/5 SERVICE 9/10 SELECTION 11/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 10/10 OVERALL 14/20
On the campus of Hamilton College, a small liberal arts NESCAC school. Absolutely the best on-campus, school subsidized bar Iíve ever seen or heard of. 14 taps, with fixtures such as pints of Dogfish Head 60 or 90 for 5 bucks, Ommegang Hennepin and Daleís Pale Ale for 4 bucks, and things that have rotated in such as Nugget Nectar and Brooklyn BCS. Donít know why youíd be in the middle of nowhere central NY unless you go to school there like I do, but this place is great.

College bar. Literally. Bar at and run by the college. Usually a good amount of interesting things on tap; currently: Hennepin, brooklym black chocolate stout, daleís pale ale, saranac black forest, troegs dead reckoning, AND EVEN MORE! A fun place, nice atmosphere, good beer.
