Stub & Herbs

AN ODD OUTING FOR THE GROUP-COLLEGE BARS ARE NOT REALLY OUR STYLE BUT THIS ONE CRIED OUT TO US FROM THE PAST. WHEN WE HEARD ABOUT THE REMARKABLE BEER LIST WE HAD TO GIVE IT A TRY.

SOME COMMENTS ON THE PLACE

THE PLACE WAS QUIET FOR A 7:30 MONDAY NIGHT BUT THE HELP WAS GREAT.  QUITE LIKELY THE ONLY PLACE WE HAVE BEEN WHERE THE WAITRESS REFERRED TO ONE OF THE BEERS (A SAISON) ON THE LIST AS TASTING LIKE PISS. ON HER RECOMMENDATION WE MADE ANOTHER CHOICE. A GREAT NIGHT OVERALL, THE TIME PASSED QUICKLY AND BEFORE WE NEW IT A BEAVY OF GREAT BURGERS HAD BEEN TOSSED DOWN ALONE WITH SOME OF THE BEST PALES AND HOPS WE’VE HAD. THE PLACE LACKED THE GREAT AMBIANCE OF THE BLUE DOOR BUT IT HAD A MUCH BETTER BREW LIST AND A BIT OF A BROADER MENU.

OTHER THINGS WE THINK YOU SHOULD KNOW

EVERY GREAT BAR HAS A GREAT BATHROOM AND THIS ONE WAS NO EXCEPTION.. IN THE BASEMENT AND STILL SMELLING LIKE THE NIGHT IN THE 70’S THAT THE FIJI FRAT TOOK OVER THE BASEMENT KEGS IT CONTAINS A DOOR THAT BARELY CLOSES AND HOLES ALL OVER THE WALL. BUT THE FIVE FOOT URINAL WAS THE MOST INTERESTING.  WITH THE STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT SHYNESS OF COLLEGE MALES (SEE MY STUDY IN THE GRAD SCHOOL BLOG AT THIS SITE) I DOUBT THAT THREE FEET OF IT GETS MUCH USE.

WORTH A STOP. DECK OUT BACK AND SOME PARKING AS WELL. WAITRESSES AND THE STAFF TEE SHIRTS ARE THE BEST: “ YOUR GRANDFATHER DRANK HERE.”
