Among the three/four best beer bars in the Va Bech to Williamsburg alley. This original location can be kind of a noisy, with a crowded college bar atmosphere at certain times, or can be a quiet little neighborhood pub on early afternoons. Decent tap selection (changing fairly frequently and always featuring something local), and the food is solid. PS, yes park on the street if you can.

Very cool place in Colonial Williamsburg about ten feet from William & Maryís campus. This place has a sort of "mug club" where you get massive pours of the the beers on tap for a discount. Pretty much everything on tap is craft with a focus on American craft and a few random English/Scottish/Welsh beers. Bottle list is large and I found about 2-3 beers I had never heard of before. Atmosphere is great- a huge college bar and a ton of fun. Canít remember what night I went but it was either Friday or Saturday and it was packed to gills and a complete riot. Very cool vibe and cool people. Excellent all around.

This unpretentious pub and restaurant offered plenty of quality beer on tap when I visited around New Yearís (SN Celebration, Lagunitas IPA, Arrogant Bastard, Victory Festbier, DFH 60-Minute IPA, 3 beers from Legend, 2 from Dominion, St.George IPA, Cottonwood Frostbite, etc.) and had a very enticing bottle list too (beers from Brooklyn, Clipper City, Flying Dog, Williamsburg Aleworks, Bluegrass, North Coast, Thirsty Dog, Bellís, Green Flash, Humboldt, etc.). The food we had (smoked turkey sandwich and ahi tuna sandwich) was decent but forgettable average American pub food. It was quite inexpensive though, so you canít really complain. I wouldnít make a detour to come here, but if you are in Williamsburg visiting the historic area, Iím pretty sure you canít find a better craft beer selection than this within walking distance.

44 taps and 100+ bottles. Nothing really unusual, but a good selection, friendly staff, and a pleasant unhurried atmosphere.

Iím extremely biased when it comes to rating this place mainly because I spent four wonderful college years living in this bar. This place is absolutely great, especially if you go during off-peak hours to avoid the crowds and noise (NEVER GO ON A SUNDAY NIGHT). Tuesdays are typically the best days to go if you are a fan of VA beers because all pitchers of draft VA beers are just 5 bucks! There burgers are good and their entrees are great. Service quality fluctuates based on extremely high turnover rate. This is a MUST for anyone traveling through Williamsburg

My wife and I ate at the Green Leafe last June during our summer vacation. The food was great. The ambiance was very nice, too. There was a mixture of college kids, businessmen wearing suits trying to nab a young chick, and families. The Green Leafe has tons of local beers, and you can sample any of them. It was here that I discovered Tupperís, Mobjack, Dominion, Sweet Water, Williamsburg, and St. George beers. Iíd say I had one of the best samplers in history, and I canít wait to get back there this June and try some more. This is a great place.

Went here the night after Thanksgiving. Met up with chris_o here. Upon scanning the menu, I had everything listed with the exception of a few beers which I had no desire to drink, so I had a Hop Wallop on draft, Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale on draft, Williamsburg Pale on cask, and Storm King. We also dabbled in their single malt scotch list with Aberlour and Laphroig 10 year oldís. Both were outstanding. This place gets really loud and busy on weekends because of itís proximity to W&M, but if you get there early enough to get a seat, you will be OK. Service was great as was the food. Hard to believe itís been so long since I have been there. Easily the best place in Williamsburg. Will be going back soon!

Located right next to the William and Mary campus. Very much a pub atmosphere. Friendly staff with a nice beer selection and some great specials. If I lived closer, Iíd probably spend quite a bit of time here.
