Our January Beer of the Month is quite appropriate for the weather - Sam Adams Cold Snap"The crisp character of this lively unfiltered White Ale gets a kick from a bright blend of spring spices. Orange peel and plum add subtle sweetness, while coriander contributes a peppery bite, creating a refreshing flavor that signals spring is on its way." Enjoy $4.50 pints all month long!

On behalf of the entire Pub staff & ownership, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you and yours (or as is said in Gaelic, "Athbhliain faoi mhaise duit"). With an improving economy and great patron support, 2017 turned out to be a good year in many ways... which of course included the opening of Remember Charlotte's in the former Annex space.  We look forward to a prosperous 2018 and again thank you for your business.

Our December BEER OF THE MONTH is ready to go - it's New Belgium's Accumulation White IPA.  This beer is a hoppy wonderland!  Big and bitter, just what this IPA ordered.  Nevertheless the addition of wheat really smooths out the rough bitter edge.  Drafts are $4.50 all month long, and we're kicking it off with a "buy a pint, keep the glass" promotion this evening from 6 PM - 8 PM (while supplies last).

November 29, 2017

On behalf of all the Pub staff we'd like to thank all our patrons who came out in droves over this past holiday weekend.  It almost felt like a mini St. Patrick's Day crowd at times!

Additionally we'd like to share an article from the November/December issue of Quintessential Barrington, titled Growing a Small Town - Looking Back at 20 Years of Economic Revitalization in Barrington, 19972017. The Pub is extremely proud to be recognized as one of the cornerstones of this plan!
