Beautiful venue (sat in a booth in the bar area). Our server was adequate, food was fabulous, especially the short rib meatballs. Huge turnoff was the extra $1 charge for a large ice cube, but I still opted for it. And the small carafe couldn't...More

I go to Cask about once per month with friends. The staff is always friendly and helpful, there's an excellent beer selection, and the food is good. Fun place to spend a few hours!!

A bar named Cask Republic should have a good beer selection and the bar delivers on its name. The beer list has a wide selection of styles from various craft breweries through Connecticut and further afield. Beer lovers passing through New Haven should stop here.
