Our Review Breakdown:
We have a soft spot for the Taproom, as it is the location of our rehearsal dinner. We have always enjoyed the beer, food and atmosphere, although we’ve never been huge fan of the out of the way location (makes it a bit difficult to pub crawl). There is plenty of tabletops and bar seating, a cozy warm fire in one of the rooms, and a large party room for events. The bartender was very friendly and a wealth of information about the beers on tap. Decent happy hour prices (daily, 3-6 and 9-11) with a great selection of $4 MacTarnahan’s pup fare, including one of our personal favorites, Mini Corn Dogs. They also have excellent daily specials – on Sunday kids under the age of 12 eat for free with a paying adult. Fill’R Up Fridays are a bogo on growlers. Can’t beat that!
Highly recommend the $9 sampler with bartender recommendations.

The Little Things:
  • Note the sign in restroom, “Very hot water!” They mean it.

    This is rather a request inspired by your excellent write-ups and breadth of coverage: I am looking for a few suggestions, Portland and Metro,where there would be a room or a comfortable and quieter corner to gather and read Irish poetry as a more civilized lead-up to St Patrick’s day (no closer than the day before). I would appreciate a few suggestions that I would visit.
    Thank you very much,
    John McAteer

      Hello John, thank you for your comment/question. There are a number of brewpubs around that have private banquet rooms, some of which you can reserve for free. What type of place are you looking for, specifically an Irish feel, or just somewhere with a bit more privacy?
