On Sunday January 25th the Pub will be closing at 9 PM so that we can have our year-end post-holiday staff party.  It's the owners way of saying "thank you" to our employees for all their hard work!

Remember that we are your regional home for Manchester United soccer!  We'll typically open for early morning games and always feature $4.50 Heineken 20oz drafts for every match.


January 6, 2015

We are sad to report that Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale - a fantastic Irish brew that we've faithfully had on tap since we opened - will no longer be available in our region.  However, we'll take advantage of that nitro tap by putting on some rotating selections, which mayu also include the return of another original, Murphy's Stout, in the future!  Check out the most current listing of our offerings at Beermenus.com and our Menu page.


January 1, 2015

Here's to a happy and prosperous 2015 for you and yours!  We're starting off the new year with a well known brew as our Beer of the Month -Sam Adams Boston Lager$3.50 drafts all month long!

December 11, 2014

We are working on final details for our 5th Annual New Year Eve Party and should have info posted here by early next week.  As it stands now, we're confirming entertainment and will offer affordable package options, "pay as you go" if you prefer that method, and a special New Years Eve dinner.  More soon!

There's LOTS going on all around town this day, so be sure to check out the village website for details.


December 3, 2014

For more information visit their website.


December 2, 2014

Due to popular demand - and the distinct possibility that it may not be available much longer in our region - we've decided to keep Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale on as our beer of the month for December.  $4 for 20oz pints, get 'em while they last!


November 30, 2014

We're sad to announce that bartender/manager John Pauley is leaving the Pub, actually his last day was yesterday.  John was one of our original hires when we opened back in March 2010 and has been a hard working & reliable part of our team.  He will be greatly missed, and we wish him well in all his future endeavors.

Pub Chili is back as a "permanent" seasonal fixture, replacing one of our two soups of the day until springtime.  Try out a cup for $4 or full bowl for $5.50.  Also great as an economical "Lucky $7" lunch option with a half sandwich or soup/salad combo!

November 4, 2014

We haven't forgotten about our new beer of the month, but right now we're providing some great specials on our remaining Pumpkin beer offerings.  Hey, these brews are good through the Thanksgiving holiday anyway! 


November 1, 2014

The Pub would like to thank everyone who came out for our Halloween party last night, it was a great success!  Regarding this upcoming sports Sunday (11/2), two notes:

Unfortunately we will not be opening early for the Manchester United-Manchester City match.  A poll of our soccer regulars indicated that most wouldn't be making the 7:30 AM start time.

No Chicago Bears this weekend (perhaps a good thing) but we'd like to remind you that we have the NFL Sunday Ticket, so if there are any certain games you'd like to watch, let us know (first come first served).
