Met up with a friend last night while in town for business, figured we both like good beer so this place would be perfect. Atmosphere was pretty good. Not too many people around but it was an "off" night so I wasnít expecting much. A few TVís and a Jukebox made up for the lack of people. Quality was pretty good. I was offered my Matilda in a pint of Chalice. Service was great. He checked up on us multiple times, talked beer with us and even offered us on of the fresh nugget nectars that had just walked in the door. No food at the moment but they are apparently building a kitchen, albeit slowly according to our bartender. Selection was pretty solid. I was hoping for a few more local offerings but it was still pretty solid. I got a Goose Island Matilda and an Old Forge Pale Ale. Overall a nice beer bar that I would definitely return to if I am ever in the area again.

Stopped by while back in Scranton for my 10 year college reunion at The U. Really impressed with this place. It is a legit beer bar. I was disappointed that there was no food offerings because I really believe that is crucial to the beer bar scene. Will definitely stop back when in Scranton.

Lots of great beers in bottles and on taps. Offerings cover the spectrum from all well known and lesser known craft brewers. Best beer bar in Scranton, indoor and outdoor bars made it easy to get beers even when busy. Would like to see more of a focus on locals such as Three Guys, Breaker, Shawnee and Bullfrog. Also the smoking on the outdoor patio is terrible, coming from Philly it is a shock when people can smoke in an establishment...even if it is outdoors.

Nice place, decent service. Beer selection is very good and always seems to rotate. Prices are a little high but youíre getting quaility beer.

Nice little spot in Scranton. Love the backyard area, big area secluded from the mess that is Scranton. Big selection of beers and friendly staff.

Stopped by here while staying at PJís Parents house. What a surprise. A ton of great stuff on tap (from Mikkeller to DFH, Stone to Victory) in addition to a thorough bottle selection which includes Alesmith, Hoppin Frogs, Cigar City, Jolly Pumpkin, Victory. Staff is really friendly. Nice outdoor area in the back with another bar.

A nice addition to Scranton. A good selection and helpful bartenders. A little too bright and get some carryover from a college bar next door. It is in walking distance from the Radisson and the Hilton.
