Visited on a rainy afternoon. Street parking is available out front if necessary, but a parking garage isn’t far. Inside seems a bit run down and forgotten. Service was alright, but uncaring at the same time. The flight I ordered came quickly, but the person pouring and serving the beer didn’t really seem interested in doing so. A very odd feel to the place. I was glad they did flights, but was also just as happy to leave afterward. If you need Rhode Island beer ticks, make the visit. Otherwise, I recommend passing. The beer is mediocre at best, and the vibe is totally weird.
Nice old-skool place in the heart of Providence next to a great coffee spot. I loved how they had the equipment infront of the bar. Nice touch. I didn’t have any food but I had a flight of what they had. A lot of beers made pretty well but not earth-shattering hop-bombs which you expect in the area now. A nice legacy place which i am pleased to say is still thriving and for that they deserve credit.
Stopped in here after our dinner to catch the end of an NCAA Tourney game. Was a Saturday night, and rather crowded. I only tried one of the beers, and it was an okay (though below average for the style) DIPA. Felt a little "bro-y" but I can’t say if that’s the standard vibe.
Tough...this was the first player in Prov, but the food is not good and the beers are average compared to what some of the small RI breweries are doing (Proclamation, Grey Sail, Foolproof)...and none of those beers are sold here. The atmosphere is probably the best thing going for it, its very "pub’y" (if that’s a word). They do wing night which also draws a big crowd.
Great Chicken Cobb salad. Always satified with the IPAs and Double IPAs
Sometimes you have to fight for a quiet corner even when it isn’t busy.
Sean Larkin has moved on to Brutopia, so it really isn’t the same place
