This was the second stop on the pub crawl with Shigadeyo. Located inside a very old building, the look is "worn historic." Seems to have a lot of neighborhood clientele. Bartender was very friendly. They have 4 or 5 taps of micros, including two barrel house beers. There were more than 20 bottles on our visit. An adequate selection of micros, including Victory, Bells, Arcadia, etc. Nothing rare. After work, it can get very loud and smoky. Bring cash because they do not take credit cards.
Check out Tmoney99’s rating. I couldnt say it any better. The beerfest was downright awesome. Great IPA selection, SpeakEasy, Weyerbacher. If you like big city, but small town friendliness, this place is for you.
Clifton area local bar with parking in front. Older building with good history. Freindly location with good service. Eight taps with six micros and cooler at end of bar with 25 to 30 bottles. They had a stout that I had on my wishlist. Beerfest on an annual basis. Clearly a local college crowd location that is worth a stop.

I’ve talked the owner and I think at some point in time soon this rating might need to be changed. But for now Fries is an established bar. They would like to serve more micros. They do have 8 taps, but 4 are macros, they do have a collection of bottled micros such as Bells, Arcadia, and Victory. They have an out door beer garden and 2 pool tables and darts. They want to serve food, but can’t right now.
