Was here twice last week. Both times with reservation and the place was packed at 06:00 pm. Food is very good quality BBQ. We had beef ribs, burgers, pulled pork, chicken gumbo. The seasoned fries are awesome. Beer is 4 beavertown taps, Quelle Saison, Neck Oil, Gamma Ray and Smog Rocket. There are more kegs like BBNo Session IPA and Thornbridge beers. Fridge full of Mikkeller, US and others international and UK brews. Reasonable prices and very friendly service. Can get a bit loud though. Location is very close to the Haggerston Overground station. Excellent.

Update - May í14. Eat dinner here for the first time last night. Amazeballs top draw íQí, as good as anything Iíve had in the states, the Irish beef ribs were fantastic, it was all good from the sides to the Chocolate Peanut Butter tart. On the beer front my only quibble is that they could do with a couple of Beavertown one offs on tap - they used to do more in the past Iím sure? You can still pick up one of their less common offerings in a bottle such as the Backfield Damson Sour on this visit. Visited in May í12 not long after they opened the establishment. Restaurant seating to the left as you enter, with kitchen on view, bar seating to the right - by the bar. Roughly a 75/25 split in favour of the restaurant which in essence what this place is. Tap for the Beavertown brewery - all of whose beers to date have been solid. Other guests on cask included beers from Oakham and Roosters. 30 or so bottles mainly from the US and UK. My visit was on a Friday and the place was very busy - they allowed us to sit in the restaurant for an hour until 7.30pm when a reservation was expected. Fair play for this. We shared some decent hot snacks as well - the main food also looked good, BBQ, burgers etc. Well worth popping to but book a table in advance if you want to eat.

Made an early booking for saturday since we had a small child with us. A bit out of the way, but itís a place youíll eat and stay for a while. Ambience is very american bar style, lots of wood. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Beer list was quite good a wide variety of american and english beers and obviously their own beaver town beers. Food was mostly meat american style which was a nice change and went with the setting. Overall I really enjoy my experience here.

(Visited April 2013) Restaurant/bar/brewpub not far from Haggerston overground station (which is actually a bit off the beaten track). Arrived quite late, so I aimed for the bar and didnít try the food. It looked quite nice though, bbq style rather than English pub grub. They only had a couple of Beavertown beers on tap, but the selection of guest beers was varied and good and they did have a good selection of bottled Beavertown beers. The selection of bottled beers was overall not huge, but well chosen and quite good. Service was friendly and efficient. It is a bit of a detour but Iíll be back to try the food and to get some more of those lovely Beavertown beers.

Beavertown tap. Mostly their own stuff on tap though a couple of others too. Very nice service though not that surprisingly, they stuck mostly to servicing the people that were there to eat. Thought about it myself, but the American barbeque stuff isnít really my thing, I suppose. Or wasnít feeling this time. Not too expensive the beers, though the food was perhaps a bit pricey as I browsed the menu. But the beers, man. The Beavertown IPAs were just out of this world. Definitely worth checking out.

A good place for both food and beer. Some of the food is quite dear but it is good for a bit of a splurge, with plenty of Beavertown and some guest beers on tap and bottle. Pretty rammed - i like sitting outside in good weather.

Was quite excited to visit this place as I had only tried one Beavertown before. 5 of their own on keg and a cask line too. And maybe about the same amount of guests. Lots of bottles too. Beavertown selection was a bit samey to be honest, with Neck Oil on keg and cask and the other beers of similar styles. The food doesnít have much appeal as I am a vegetarian, and Iíve heard that the place gets pretty busy so the small bar area might not be always accessible. Even though it was early there was still a notable hipster element, which was slightly irritating, but you canít blame them for that, itís the location I guess. Music was a bit of a cliche I thought. Should probably go back, maybe I was in a bad mood, but I guess normally the beers would win me over, but I wasnít nuts about them.

Visited on 1st June 2013. Modern, low-ceilinged intimate gastro-brewpub. Cosy yet vibrant atmosphere with soft lighting and plenty of decorative bric-a-brac on show. Pleasant music volume. Young 18-35 clientele. Beavertown range on tap - beer excellent, but also quite expensive. My visit was outside of food service hours but meals arriving from earlier orders did look rather good. Service was good, staff were friendly and so was the crowd who would talk to you if you were visiting by yourself. I would return.

I made a reservation to eat at this place following the Twitter recommendation of Melissa Cole. I arrived in the late afternoon a bit early for my table and the place was practically empty. Very cosy decor a bit worn but with a lot of soul. The staff was very kind and attentive and I had the good fortune to talk to a waiter, who was involved in the brewing of the Beavertown beer. Very inspiring. Foodwise I opted for the burger, which was a mistake since it was just okay and I hear their ribs and pulled pork is really stunning. The available beer was on a very high level both in terms of selection and quality. I think I ended up having around three different bottles two of which from Beavertown, one a collaboration between BrewDog and Beavertown. During my dinner the place filled up rapidly but the staff still remembered me and were curious to hear what I thought of the food and beer. Itís clear that this is a popular place and I can understand the attraction as they manage to make the three elements of good beer, good food and good atmosphere come together to produce something even better than each of the elements.
