I like this place. It is located behind Manchester City Hall. I mean, it’s a bar! What do you expect? Well, how about some 75 or so beers to choose from on tap or in the bottle. It is the only place in New Hampshire where you can get get Alexander Keith’s on draft. Live entertainment. The menu is mainly burgers, sandwiches, fried food, and salads...typical pub fare and quite palatable. Live entertainment several nights per week. It is set up in a way to allow you to enjoy the experience. You can sit out with the crowds near the bar or sit in the backroom where they have their video gaming machines...but at least there is a level of privacy there.
On Market St just a stones throw from city hall sits this landmark of a Manchester Pub. I’ve been here quite a few times over the years. Currently somewhere around 100 taps with lots of local but also regional and national craft beers. Pretty good pub food. Live music often. 35 taps on Tuesdays are 2 bucks. Popcorn is always free.
Small patio outside a brick building along the street. A "college" vibe. Food selection was good but only mediocre flavors. Beer list was extensive although I didn’t find it exclusive. Overall, a one time stop.
An old building near the old factories in town. Very interesting set up and décor. They also have live music. They serve food but we didn’t eat anything. We where there for the beer. For this area of NH, the tap list is unsurpassed. Great drafts, locals like White Birch, Shipyard, plus nice imports and other beer you can only get in larger beer bars. I had Victory Storm King on draft. (I nice surprise.) Lots of different styles as well. A mixed crowd of people as well (all ages and walks of life). Our waitress was also very good also ( Thank you Tammy) Flat screen TV’s fixed around the place, playing New England sports… I can’t believe it took me this long to come here. I WILL be going back without question.
Nice bar on a brick sidewalk side street in Manchester. 1800’s mill building, all brick and wood inside. Amazing, in my experience, selection. over 70 taps. all decent beers too!. Prices weren’t bad either. It is a little hard to find, but well worth it.
A very friendly and active bar, on a major league scale for a small city. The bar was jam packed at 5 pm, with a few people outside mulling about including some staff who found an excellent beer to try. There are long horizontal tables, encouraging conversation, as you can see most people here wherever you are. Very good selection of taps, fresh as a derivative of turnover, although focused on what’s available. I understand that this state is hard to cover, and nationally available "hottest rated" beers are not to be expected. Decent upscale area. Staff was a bit harried, prices very good, $3 for a DIPA pint on cask!
This is a fun place. Great beer selection and their food is pretty good. Better than most bars. It’s a big time college hangout during the school season and all the students hang out downstairs while just about everybody else hangs out upstairs where the bands play. I usually go here when I’m up in NH.
