A very funky little bar on the East Side of Providence. This place has advertised "99 bottles" of beer since at least the early 1990s. The place is dark, cozy and rather beat up a bit. Fun to check out if youíre in the area.

Smelled damp, and there were fruit flies, but the beer list was extensive. This place is divey, but theyís what itís going for it seems, so to each its own. There is a lot of stuff on the menu that has no reason to be there, they have a lot of potential if they spent a little more time with their ordering.

Just southof the city, this is THE original craft beer bar in Providence, established well before craft beer was even a concept. Famous for 99 beers on tap, although some are belnds and bottles. Your reap rewards for going through all 99, and even more rewards for going through the list multiple times, culminating in a tattoo or others things. Both staff and clinetele are very interesting characters, very friendly. You can share a few beers to help folks get through the 99. Rory took very good care of us. Worth going well out of your way to try.

This is a very dark, dank comfortable pub. They pump so much gas into the beer I feel like Bill Murray under Steve Martinís care. The beer selection is descent, but the charm is the gas panic. Cheers!

Small, crowded, noisy, divey and fun. They have a decent selection on tap and a good selection of bottles as well. It is a good place to get out of the cold and have a few pints.
If you go on anything even resembling a weekend be prepared to fight the crowd, especially if you are looking for a table.

Small dark basement feel, like a homemade bar. Unfortunately the best bottle selection of beer in RI and usually about 16 beers on tap. Service was good. Snoby rich college crowd. Not a horrible place, i go in once in a whie for 5-15 minutes just to drink a cold import and then go on my way, if iím in the neiborhood. 3/9/08 - Iíve been going here more often, have a friend who joined the 100 beer club, after checking your card for all 100 beers, you get your pic on the wall. The bar was established in 1890 but its very disapointing that there is no picture or info about the history. They now have a newer TV, but the place is still tiny. Iím starting to warm up to the place, but the snoby crowd can still annoy me.

This place is pretty small with low ceilings and it gets pretty crowded at times. The beer selection is okay, about 100 brews, give or take, mostly in bottles. Not too many interesting beers that I hadnít tried, considering such a high number. Probably the best selection in providence though... Adequate service, college crowd mostly, and a really gross (if amusing) mens room. I come here once in a while but usually only when friends are meeting me there. Not a place Iíd hit too much otherwise, unless maybe I lived down the street.

Like the description, this place has about 12-15 taps and a "99 beer on the wall list", which has some interesting brews on it. Very dark, very smoky, and very small. The 20oz mugs make this place somewhat unique. Too small and way too dark for me.
