Sadly the new location rarely impresses. Expansive and cavernous feeling inside, the beer has suffered as well. For the better part of a year Iíve noticed a common off taste to many of their in house brews. Sample the house beers, but order the guest beers.
I love ABC and the new building now that they have combined with Hangar. I do miss the small bar across the street, doesnt have the same homey feel but does the trick. beer is always fresh, bartenders are knowledgable and the game is always on.
I swung by on a early tuesday afternoon. Sat at the bar downstairs, shaped like a backwards letter J. Celler was a Brick darkwood, tile motif. You can see the brewing equipment around you. Clean and comfortable. Service was good, but it wasnít like it was particlulary busy either. I got to chat with the brewer, Mike. He gave me the nickle history of both the brewpub and his background. They had the Pilsner, Pale ale, Ipa, Esb, Brown, Impy Stout, Scotch, Raspberry brown, and a Lager on while I was there. Had a burger with cheddar and jalepenoes and fries, Burger was good, fries were very tasty. I thought it seemed like a great little place. I wish it were closer. Update 05/27/2015 oy new location blows imo, big sports bar vibe no charm. Hate it, beer is fine, didnít have food, not a place for me.
Stopped here on my way back from Vermont. The place itself is on the large side, decorated with some nice breweriana, complete with a huge bar. Service is on the pretentious side. Beers are decent. Didnít order any food.
A very large brewpub in a small shopping mall. The bar runs almost the full length of the room, which is huge and accommodates several pool tables. We were here the day that Hurricane Sandy hit the coast and there was a great community spirit when the power went off leaving only one television screen and an eerie vodka display with the lights on. They had five regular beers and five seasonals. We were able to try most of them (well, Chris was - I was driving), despite having difficulty paying as the cash registers and card readers all rely on electricity too.

Stopped by here while my girlfriend was studying in New Hampshire. Food was pretty good, service was good, and the beer quality was good. I enjoyed this place a fair amount and would definitely visit again.
Large place located in a shopping center. The bar area is massive as is the bar itself. I went on a Friday and was impressed by how many people they had behind the bar. They had 11 of their beers on tap 1 on cask plus 10 guest taps. The beers ranged from bland to sold with nothing either outstanding or terrible. the food was very flavorful and everything was very reaonably priced especially after spending a couple of days in Boston.
