A huge place. Tons of televisions, tons of taps, kind of a Buffalo Wild Wings vibe to it...

Unfortunately during our visit, they had a ton of Ballast Point beers on tap, which isnít really what I was looking for coming from California. Oh well. Still a decent number of local offerings to try.

The good thing about this place is that they have an overwhelming number of beers, so you can probably find something you want to try or drink or at least havenít had. The downside is, the stuff I tried wasnít terribly good.

Despite being busy, the service was just okay. But I chalk some of that up to them training a new bartender and that being the group that was serving us.

Probably a good place to watch an inappropriate amount of football and drink a ton of beer on a weekend afternoon.

My wife and I stopped in here after a walk around town after lunch as we were passing thru. We had prompt friendly service from a knowledgeable young lady. Their Beer book must have been over 8 pages long. Great selection. I got mostly local beers that I have not seen before. Very enjoyable nice place.

I defintey agree with those that say this place has a sports bar vibe what with all the massive flat screened tvís all tuned to games. Still with over 100 taps of solid local and national craft, thereís a lot to choose from. I thought the bar staff was pleasant enough to converse with and the prices were reasonable for the area. The big draw is that itís one of the few places that stays open late every night. Iíd probably go back if I was in the area.

PROS: Huge selection (110+ taps), including some great craft beers tucked away behind a lot of regular distribution stuff (in the last few months Iíve had Bourbon County Barleywine and Allagash Jim Bean on draft); surprisingly good pub grub (seriously -- check out the wings and the burgers). CONS: First and foremost, itís a hyped-up sports bar -- dozens of TVs everywhere, no windows, and an industrial warehouse vibe. The crowd can be pretty rowdy, too. The service has gotten a lot better over the last couple of years, though.

I stopped in here with the wife after a comedy show around the corner. It was 10 ish on a Friday night so the place was kind of packed and we were starving. They seated us pretty quickly near the bar. Lots of taps but the beer geek in me struggled to find something new or exotic. Founders Breakfast Stout and Great North IPA did satisfy my thirst. The service was pretty good, and my burger was tasty. Pricing about what I expect from a craft beer bar. I didnít really dig the loud frat party vibe I got from this place. Iíd go back if they had something I wanted on tap, but maybe in the afternoon. Maybe Iím just getting old.

Stopped here outta the blue because of the 160 taps. Got some interesting beers. Nothing really rare or difficult to get but some nice beers. More of a college bar type atmosphere. A big plus was the 90s rap mix all night. Not bad.

The tap list is pretty much just everything they can easily lay their hands on from the distributors. Not a lot of effort put towards getting kegs from the little guys in NH. The food is good, nothing stand-out. The service was the problem, each time I went. The place really is run more like a regular bar than a beer bar - to most of the staff it seemed like it was all just beer. Just a broad umbrella. If youíre going to cash in on the craft beer craze, please at least make an effort to get people who know what they are serving (and hopefully love drinking it, themselves) and how to serve it. And for goodness-sake, stop serving me the wrong beers! If a beer is out, just say so. Donít substitute with something that you think will fool me. Thatís certainly what it felt like. Step up your game, guys. Train your staff. Manage your kegs better. Right now thereís a distinct lack of dedication and true love for craft beer in the place. Itís just another restaurant, albeit with a tap list that sends most beer neophytes into a coma.

Iím from canada and I love beer,good beer! That being said, almost all good american beers donít make it in Quebec. So when I saw the selection at the thirsty moose, I nearly fainted. I was like a kid in a candy store. I didnít eat there and frankly the decor faded in the background, cause I was sitting at the bar in admiration of all those taps. Great beer place!
