Let me make one thing clear: you ONLY come here for the food, and you can have a beer with it, but thatís it. Staff is friendly, and very obliging (especially after I got some gum on my trousers from the seating), but thereís a schedule and you only get 90 minutes per table, then youíre pushed out the door (into the outdoor seating area, where we were allowed to have another beer, but it was cold and rainy, so passed). Anyway, as read below the Beavertown draughts are just the regulars (only the Gamma Ray was new for me), luckily they had some guest taps as well. Extensive bottle list as well, but as I stated before, you only have 90 minutes, so thatís hardly time to order your first round of beer and check out the food menu, swallow it all down asap, push some dessert down your throat and move because the next customers are breathing in your neck to take your seating. Very loud, very packed, you donít come here for the ambience, nor for some cosy beer tasting, just for the food. But again, you just come here for the food. We ordered a platter of beef rib, pork rib and pulled pork, it was all fantastic (although the pulled pork is a bit dry, compared to my home made one). The burger is standard but decent. Enjoyed it very much. So, yes it was nice to have a decent beer with the food, but itís not really a beer geek destination. So I would rate this higher on Trip Advisor than I do on RB.

Visited Thursday 27th Nov .. Finally I had my pork ribs here !!! Great experience ! The place is more food oriented but I think you can just have a pint if you like in the barís area .. We have been lucky to get a table with no reservation .. The ribs are fantastic and even the " small " selection is more than good !! Service at the table was friendly , quick and attentive .. Very good place !!!!

Great place to eat and spend some time with lots of beer choices. Besides their own ones (Beaver town) they have a lot of other english and us craft beers. The food was fantastic. I really enjoyed this place.

The barbecue joint with an attitude and passion for craft beer, my first visit didnít disappoint. Four on tap from Beavertown, plus five keg guests and one cask (Dark Star American Pale). A well-considered collection of bottles are available. Loud, crowded and hip. Good luck finding room to stand, sit or breathe in peak hours.

Was here twice last week. Both times with reservation and the place was packed at 06:00 pm. Food is very good quality BBQ. We had beef ribs, burgers, pulled pork, chicken gumbo. The seasoned fries are awesome. Beer is 4 beavertown taps, Quelle Saison, Neck Oil, Gamma Ray and Smog Rocket. There are more kegs like BBNo Session IPA and Thornbridge beers. Fridge full of Mikkeller, US and others international and UK brews. Reasonable prices and very friendly service. Can get a bit loud though. Location is very close to the Haggerston Overground station. Excellent.

Update - May í14. Eat dinner here for the first time last night. Amazeballs top draw íQí, as good as anything Iíve had in the states, the Irish beef ribs were fantastic, it was all good from the sides to the Chocolate Peanut Butter tart. On the beer front my only quibble is that they could do with a couple of Beavertown one offs on tap - they used to do more in the past Iím sure? You can still pick up one of their less common offerings in a bottle such as the Backfield Damson Sour on this visit. Visited in May í12 not long after they opened the establishment. Restaurant seating to the left as you enter, with kitchen on view, bar seating to the right - by the bar. Roughly a 75/25 split in favour of the restaurant which in essence what this place is. Tap for the Beavertown brewery - all of whose beers to date have been solid. Other guests on cask included beers from Oakham and Roosters. 30 or so bottles mainly from the US and UK. My visit was on a Friday and the place was very busy - they allowed us to sit in the restaurant for an hour until 7.30pm when a reservation was expected. Fair play for this. We shared some decent hot snacks as well - the main food also looked good, BBQ, burgers etc. Well worth popping to but book a table in advance if you want to eat.

Made an early booking for saturday since we had a small child with us. A bit out of the way, but itís a place youíll eat and stay for a while. Ambience is very american bar style, lots of wood. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Beer list was quite good a wide variety of american and english beers and obviously their own beaver town beers. Food was mostly meat american style which was a nice change and went with the setting. Overall I really enjoy my experience here.

(Visited April 2013) Restaurant/bar/brewpub not far from Haggerston overground station (which is actually a bit off the beaten track). Arrived quite late, so I aimed for the bar and didnít try the food. It looked quite nice though, bbq style rather than English pub grub. They only had a couple of Beavertown beers on tap, but the selection of guest beers was varied and good and they did have a good selection of bottled Beavertown beers. The selection of bottled beers was overall not huge, but well chosen and quite good. Service was friendly and efficient. It is a bit of a detour but Iíll be back to try the food and to get some more of those lovely Beavertown beers.

Beavertown tap. Mostly their own stuff on tap though a couple of others too. Very nice service though not that surprisingly, they stuck mostly to servicing the people that were there to eat. Thought about it myself, but the American barbeque stuff isnít really my thing, I suppose. Or wasnít feeling this time. Not too expensive the beers, though the food was perhaps a bit pricey as I browsed the menu. But the beers, man. The Beavertown IPAs were just out of this world. Definitely worth checking out.
