I had some time to kill in Andover and found this place. I was not familiar with them but was pleasantly surprised. Their DIPA was decent, nothing to write home about, but very drinkable. The pretzels were good, but the cheese sauce was practically inedible.

Atmosphere and beer were excellent. Only suggestion is to implement adult/days and times. Drinking a beer in a business scenario is better done in an adult setting.

No food (just pretzels etc) just grown ups having a good time drinking a great range of beers in a very conducive setting. No kids in evidence.
