A: The atmosphere of the place is great. It has a weird, hippy like character on the exterior but the interior features many old beer memorbilia on the walls. The bar has an old feel to it too.
Q: I had three beers while I was there and they were all decent (or better) and very drinkable, not a bad beer in thr bunch that I drank or sampled.
S: The bartender was very friendly and attentive during my entire stay there, even talked some beer talk when he was slow.
S: A decent selection on tap, had 9 in house beers, 1 guest beer, and 1 guest cider tap. a nice array of styles between their IPA, Imperial Red, Belgian Saison, RIS, Koelsch, Pale, Irish Red, Stout, and Pilsner.
F: The food was decent, nothing that blew me away but served well. Had the brewmasters 6oz burger and it was adequate.
V: For dinner and three beers, the total came to 27 bucks, which is very reasonable to me.
Overall, a great place to visit when in downtown Providence. The only negative was the parking situation, which I am sure is fine, when there is not an event at the Dunkin Donuts Center (one block away)

Great atmosphere. Dark wood & tile. Exposed brewery adds charm. Cool painting of deceased performers. Food prices are a little high than what I'm used to, but it could be due to the area. Service was super-fast. I had the wings, which were a tad underdone, but I wouldn't hold it against them. Definitely go check them out if you're in the area.

Friendly pub with a warm feeling. Interior is dark-ish but inviting with lots of woods and signs of all sorts. Size is medium-large for a brewpub with 2 big floors that can accommodate around 200 people (my unscientific estimate). It was a beautiful day so we sat outside but the patio is not very big (less than 50) with view on a business street. I was there on a Monday 9pm and the place was packed inside and outside. However it was the chicken wings night at 30 cents a wing and the place was jam packed with chicken-wing eating students. May not be representative of the usual clientele. We had some delicious cheap chicken wings and a real meal, everything was good, by pub fare standard. They had 6 beers on tap, quality ranged from decent to very good. I was actually quite happy about the beer given that this pub is rarely talked about. All in all, Iíd like to go back and I think I preferred this place over the other brewpub in town (Union Station Brewery Ė John Harvards). Not only worth a stop, it is worth a detour.

Ok place in downtown Providence for knocking back a few brews. Slightly run down and the food is sub par but edible. RI IPA is excellent!

Older building filled with dark wood and weird murals. Medium sized restaurant with a bar that seats around 12
Food was excellent and well priced.
I had a pulled pork sandwich and my friend had the burger. Both satisfied.
Staff had a pulse and were prompt.
Of there own beers: the Brown was terrible, IPA and DIPA were very good. Saison was so-so. They carry a range of their in-house beers and have a couple of guest taps.

Located in an older building, itís a smartly designed fairly small space. I sat at the bar and did not eat, though I was chatting with a guy whose burger looked good. A sampler was available, and the beers ranged from poor to above average. Prices were OK, service was passable. Decent stop.

So the whole time I sat at the bar, some dude sitting next to me was alternating between sleeping and babbling incoherently. I didnít see him drink anything. He finally said something apparently profound about War and Peace, left a $20 tip, and left. Very entertaining. Oh, and the beer and food were both good, and staff were friendly, if a bit perplexed.

Nice atmosphere. Decent selection. Worth a visit if your in the area. Tried Belgian Saison which was good. May try the Kolsch after. Friendly atmosphere.

My rating here is pretty low for a place I rather like, but so be it. I really enjoy the atmosphere here-pure indy pub. I really enjoy there beers: hearty and satisfying. I find the people on both sides of the counter a bit dull in RI, my apologies but RI is just not the most outgoing place and it really shows here. But, I kinda dig their beer especially their IPA.

Came in here while waiting to meet up with my wifeís cousin who currently lives in Providence. Nice laid back atmosphere, and definitely a local feel to the place. Split a couple of appetizers and I got a flight. Beers were decent enough. Service was good, and friendly. Worth stopping in if youíre in the area, and Iím sure Iíll be back the next time Iím in Providence.
