A nice place to enjoy a beer. They hold Irish folk sessions once a month which is a great compliment to the selection of Irish influenced beers they have. The food is typical, nothing extraordinary. It is a smaller place which becomes very cozy in winter but slightly uncomfortable in summer. The staff is very knowledgeable and loves to have a conversation about beer. Iím happy to have it near me.

This is a great place to spend a warm Saturday afternoon in Utica. The taps are generally pretty solid, and the bottle selection is even better. The bartenders are always accommodating, and one time the owner came out to say hello. (He must have seen how much money Iíd dropped.) I will come to this place every time I travel through Utica. The food (much of it of a fried variety) is also very very good.

This place is pretty cool. An old rustic-looking joint with a decent selection.I was there for the tapping of their 2 in-house brews. The Breakfast Stout was fantastic and the other was a Belgian (canít quite remember the name, but I had two of them). Food was decent (typical pub fare, with some panini sprinkled in). The place is "Home of the Utica Club Side" which means you can have a side of Utica Club (the local brew) with your lunch. Nice!
