We have eaten a few times here now. I must say I am impressed with the food here. You get some interesting twists on the food here. Deviled eggs are made with chipotle to give them just a bit of a bite. Last time there I had the pork chops that among the other items on it were shaved brussel sprouts. My wife liked the cornmeal waffle that was served with her chicken. Unusual, but it all works. And the beer selection is just superb. I believe they have 18 taps of constantly rotating beers. This placeís only drawback is that it is tiny. Get there early if you want dinner.

Just too small to get the highest rating for selection. And the food is too damn good for a valid value translation, meaning they have to charge a few bucks more for what theyíre achieving, which is the best beer bar food Iíve ever had. The mussels are so consistently top notch, youíd swear the Grote Markt was just outside. Ambiance will go 5 once the place seasons up a bit. Service is friendly, fast, and efficacious. NO wasted tap space, and thoughtful session beer/lager presence. Food, Iíll reiterate, unmatched for beer bar, competes with any of the local swanky/hot bistros. A must-stop.

Nice bar, not too big inside so it can get crowded. Good selection of beers. A few that I havenít seen before. Food was excellent and staff was friendly. Fair prices. I think the AC broke the day I went because it got really hot.

Not too far from the Hamden Amity. This place is was a pleasant surprise when I went. A modest, but solid tap list of 18 regionals. Good atmosphere, friendly staff.
