Nice hole in the wall bar, good selection of foriegn/domestic/local beers. Just started brewing their own beer, aparently it only lasted a couple days and I missed it. Suppose to have more coming next month, hope to get to try some this time.

Lots of bottles, sometimes they get really good ones. Food is alright.
They have a "passport" system, where if you drink the beers on the passport, you get a shirt. Unfortunately, the passport includes beers like Corona.
Not a bad place.

A bit of a hole in the wall, very local bar vibe (which I like). Lots of homebrew (BARF) guys hang here. Good selection for Newport News, and they have plans to begin brewing their own "soon". Didnít try the food, but looked good.

Went here on Friday, September 7th, 2007. Went with the wife and met up with some friends of hers. Not crowded, but seemed a bit cozy. Waitresses were friendly enough and stayed on top of things. The beer list isnít knock out but itís good for Newport News. They even had a handful of stuff I havenít had that wasnít BMC! I didnít eat there though the wife and her friends said everything was good. I intend on going back.

Formerly the Roost restaurant, it changed ownership in Nov. 2006. They advertise 99 beers and ales, but have expanded their selection since then. They have 7 taps, but will be adding 3 more soon. Permanent draft beers appear to be Bass, Pilsner Urquell, Michelob Amber Ultra, Harp, and Guiness. Iíve also seen St. Georgeís Pilsner, Grolsch, and Anchor Steam on tap.
Healthy variety of bottled imports and microbrews, but not many are all that rare, dozens of countries represented though. Limited wine list, no mixed drinks. Dart and chess boards available. Pretty cozy and relaxed atmosphere.
