Worth coming by for the draught list as they have a good range of Hill Farmstead, Fiddlehead, Lawson’s and other good interstate beers. The pizza I ordered was mediocre but I was in desperate need of food so braved it. Bartender was fine but it was dead quiet even at lunch time but I guess all the locals go over to FT&G. This is more of a late night music venue rather than somewhere to hang out for a few beers during the day.

Wandered in looking for a slice and stayed all night. Draft list was surprisingly well balanced including Maine Beer Co, 2 Founders lines, and some rarities on from Green Flash. Bar staff was busy, but still had time to describe beers and give great service. My first time there, wont be my last.

When I visited: Late May 2013.
What I had: Good Life Mountain Rescue Dry Hop Pale Ale, Maine Beer Company Mean Old Tom, and
Sixpoint Spice of Life Citra IPA on tap, several Villa Possi Pinot Grigios for my better half.
What I liked: Shockingly good draught line-up for a live music venue, fair prices, reminded us of the bars we used to frequent in college but with much better beer and wine.
What I disliked: No table service, we initially struggled to find seats, being a concert venue the bar is very loud, after a few drinks we grew weary of the music and left.
Would I go back? Hard to say. It’s a fun spot that was worth visiting for the handful of taps that weren’t available elsewhere in town, and for a brief moment it made us nostalgic for the university dive bars of years past, but nowadays we prefer pubs where you can actually hear yourself.
