Some of the drafts are 10 oz, a little small I think, I would expect a 12 oz to be minimum size but being a Irish pub I would think pint size should be the norm. Food was very good, I had the irish beef stew and it lived up to my expectations , My partner had a panini sandwich which was one of the better ones I have ever tasted. Nice Outdoor seating area although a little small, we went late afternoon so it wasn’t very busy. we will definably return. Great selection of drafts.

This is the closest bar to me, and it’s walking distance. Plus I bought in on their Founders card, so all beers are $3 for a 20oz mug for me (sorry, this was a pre-opening promotion, so it’s long gone). So I end up here a lot, and sort of hate myself for it. The tap selection is above average for the area, but not outstanding. Bartenders range from knowing little about beer and being more interested in flirting to reasonably attentive and at passingly familiar with the taps. Service on the whole tends to be indifferent. When it’s quiet during the day or during games on the weekend, it’s bearable. The patio is nice on a mild day. At peak time the bar gets very loud and tends to attract an obnoxious mix of arrogant business types and partiers looking to get lit (OK, it’s West Hartford -- that’s pretty much what you get anywhere here.) Food is overall poor -- the fries are good, and the Guiness lamb stew was good when I had it at their soft opening. Everything else has been subpar. I go here strictly for convenience. I really need to make the haul out to the Half Door in Hartford more often, it’s superior in all regards.

The tap selection is spectacular! The bar lloks great. My bartender was very knowledgable, and practically made me taste EVERYTHING. This is a great place for a beer connoisseur. I also noticed a great spirit selection. Check this place out for sure!

Located in a nice block of West Hartford, I wasn’t expecting this place to be such a dive bar dump. They claim to be a beer bar but they had 20+ taps that were mostly crap and a random selection of bottles that lacked seasonals or quality. The bartenders also don’t seem to know much about beer since they served me an Urthel saisonaire when i asked for a hop it. Even when I pointed this out to them it didn’t seem to register. In fairness they seem to have a decent whiskey selection but if beer’s your thing, you’re much better off at plan b.

There is no better beer selection than this! Plenty of rotating lines, some very unusual hard to find bottles. Just had Alpha Dog IPA from Idaho on draft- AWESOME! The food is excellent as well. The best wings and nachos around. You won’t have any problem with their serving size either- go hungry & thirsty and you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommend.

Just opened Irish Pub in West Hartford center. Great for sitting out on the patio enjoying one of their twenty draught choices, or more than 100 different bottles. Good pub grub inside, had the nachos to start and the burger, both were phenominal. Tap list is usually 6 irish beers of the usual sort except Killkenny that ive never seen in the states, so thats a good one, some usual macros, but they do reserve 6 taps that they rotate with new micros every few weeks. inside is a good, spacious bar with plenty of seats and tons of tv’s. The bottle list is pretty extensive, however filled with a lot of usual choices, so even though there are 100 or more bottle choices, maybe 20 of which are really the interesting ones. I saw some corsendonk, chimay, stone, etc. on there, unfortunately i went with one labeled, "Ireland" under country of origin, had never heard of it, "Leg Biter", and found out after I got it that it was from Rochester, so too bad. Good place that W.Hartford sorely needed. Highly reccommend it.
