This place has just as much character as it has beers. The food is great too.

Decent food, fair prices, and a great selection of beers on tap (30ish). The beers on tap are usually not the most adventurous, but as long as youíre not looking for something uber rare or one-of-a-kind, their tap list will have something for everyone.

I giess if you lived in Middletown, this would do. Iíd rather drink at home. So much fucking tchotchke. The draft beer list reads like the minor leagues of over-distribiuted craft beer. My Duvel was headless and obviously old. Draft rooms can.be done better.

I visit Eli Cannonís for a friendís surprise birthday party and itís really one of the better bars Iíve been to in CT. Itís a decently sized bar with different sitting areas filled with quirky beer-themed and randomly themed stuff. The wait service is very good and they even returned one of my friendís beers because she didnít like it, free of charge. Their draft list isnít the the rarest around, but youíll be bound to find something new each time you visit. I tried a jerk chicken quesadilla, which was delicious and my two pints (a Blue Point and a Rouge) came to 9.50. Not bad at all.

Definitely one of the top beer bars in CT, which isnt saying a whole lot, but it is a great place to go and get good beer. the choices are many, but nothing thats not too out of the ordinary. The food is typicial pub grub, not great, but the wings were ok, small but tasty. overall, eliís is a great place to go for a few beers and chill out on the back beer garden.

Looks small from the outside but goes pretty far back lots of taps at this place. They had three unique beers on tap and a couple local beers. Other than that just an average selection but great for connecticut. Didnít have any food but I hear it was good from friends.

They have many taps sure enough, but you have to catch them on a good day or the selection is just a bunch of so-so beers. The food is standerd pub fare, nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is cool, very welcoming to having a beer with friends.

Itís like buying a lottery ticket... on one side, they have 33 beers on tap. Could be an amazing selection... but you might catch it on an off day if they donít have what you like. On one occasion, I didnít know where to start... Avery Maharaja, Dogfish Burton Baton, Lagunitas Hop Stoopid, Heavy Seas Loose Cannon... another time I think there best offering was a Dogfish 60 min. Still good, but if Iím going out for the night, I want to go around the world.
Food is solid... always get the jalapeŮo poppers Russian Roulette style (one is injected with Daveís Insanity Extra Hot sauce). Burgers are good too. Definitely worth a trip... but plan on a hefty bar tab.
