“great beer selection....but don't eat”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

great spot to grab a unique beer, with a menu that separates them by country. But the food is very pedestrian, and the menu hasn't changed in a couple of decades.

“A bizarrely attractive hole in the wall”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

This downtown Hamilton pub feels more like an American hole in the wall bar --- narrow, and very, very long. It's kind of dingey, and the furniture has seen better days, or decades. The food isn't bad --- I had the parmesan on a bun, with fries --- but the attraction is the beer, hundreds of them, listed by country on a brochure-like menu, fetched from an unseen cellar, some in need of dusting off. Next visit to Hamitlon, I'll be staying the night, so I expect I can sample more than one of the exotically-named English ales. I'd probably have a drink or two at Chester's, though, and then eat dinner elsewhere.

“Beer lovers unite!”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Great selection of beers from all over the world. Although they may not have what you want on hand, the options are endless. I love the old fashioned wood and stained glass decor. Decent finger food menu.

“They can go to hell for...”
Reviewed 16 August 2008

They can go to hell for not having any beers from the New Belgium Brewery.
