College tour continues with teen, husband and I reveling in this local gem hidden behind and under a wine bar in their historic district next to Randolph College. More than 15 microbrews on tap with pints and tasting sizes which were fun to explore - an Apocalypse stout with hints of chocolate and cinnamon, a blackberry/pear cider and a local double IPA. Salads are outstanding - especially the greens/cranberry and goat cheese. Pizzas were great too. Don't miss the roasted veggie appetizer which made me crave a 2nd order - really. To top it off we couldn't bear talking about colleges and the Trivial Pursuit cards on the table offered actual - ahem - cross generational entertainment. Great server too! Great evening - GO.

They have a variety of very creative brick oven pizzas and all are delicious. They also make some mean hot sandwiches, chili, and tacos on Tuesday. All worth it. They have around 20 taps and rotate beers through, so unless you go every day, you'll find something different every time. Unless what you're looking for is PBR or Natty Boh, which they have in cans for the hipsters. This is a basement joint, the first room is all seated dining on reclaimed church pews, the second room is the bar and a few more tables, and the third room has tables that are more flexible for larger groups. And don't forget to check out the bottle shop way in back where you can find several of the beers on tap (in bottles) and a great variety of everything else. They have trivia Monday nights and live music Fridays and Saturdays, great place to go.

A couple words of warning: 1. If you go in the summer and sit in the 2nd or 3rd room, expect to sweat. It gets pretty hot down there. 2. Cell signal is terrible. Expect your phone battery to die looking for signal constantly. Luckily they do now have free wi-fi though, so there's that.

Rivermont Pizza is a favorite. Staff is friendly and the Pizza delicious. It is a great place to have beer and Pizza after a long day. It is not fancy and has a chill vibe. Trivial pursuit cards at the tables entertain us while we wait. My kind of place!

Nearly as good as the original we had in Naples. As good as stuff in New Haven without the 3 hour wait.

The food here is amazing. I've never ordered something that wasn't delicious. The spinach and artichoke dip is to die for. Their pizzas and calzones and so good with great topping choices. Love the fact that they have so many beers on tap and have different specials every night. I think the atmosphere makes this place. Its not a place you want to bring your little kids, but a great spot to go with friends or on a date.
