Checked out this place on Cinco De Mayo. Pretty packed, a few seats at the bar available. It took us at least 10 minutes to get our first beer, after that it was no problem. Amazing tap selection including Pizza Port, Green Flash, Lightning....... Got to the bar around 8:30, was having such a good time we didnít leave till 2am. I like the crowd a little better here than OíBrienís ( a little younger). Looking forward to going back.

Decent little dive bar. I loved all the hundreds of tap handles suspended from the ceiling. Good selection of local brews. My one complaint was the music was to fucken loud. I had a very hard time hearing and conversing. I found ample nearby street parking, making this a good choice over Toronado where you are lucky to park within a half mile.

A very dark pub, but nice interieur because they have all their old tap handles hung up on the ceiling. The bottle list is crazy. 3 Fonteinen Intense Red, Golden Blend and stuff like that. Service is meh-I-donít-care-like, but fast enough. Food is okay, right what you need when youíre hungry. Taps are quite cheaply priced sometimes. Dive bar yes, but a fun place.

Cozy pub in nice neighbourhood. 28 taps serving fine craft beers. Good prices like pliny the elder for 6.5$. But big disappointment is that they are not serving half pints, only pints. They do have selected beer flight but you canít make your own flight. I donít get it. This same thing brings disappointment almost every time when going to good beer bar. Only russian river in santa rosa knows how to do this thing.

Laid back atmosphere and very friendly staff. Wonderful bottle and draught selection. Relatively quiet, conversations could be had at a reasonable volume.

Pretty cool place. Lots of choices on draft and in bottle. It will be a long time before I can walk in here and NOT find something I havenít had. Hey, I can always have a draft of PBR if it comes down to it.

Better than OíBriens hands down. Nice ambiance, good selection of bottles and a decent selection on tap. I think I still prefer Liars Club, because they have a better tap selection and good food, but Hamiltons has easy to find parking, unlike PB. All in all, itís worth a visit.

A great beer bar that was crowded when we arrived. Some great people as well. A fun time. The tap list is pretty sick too!
