Had a great burger and beer here. Selection of beer was quite large, and satisfied our large group. Everyone had burgers or sandwiches, no-one complained about the food. The place is a little dark but is very clean. We all enjoyed ourselves!

I've been going to the Strange brew tavern for years, they do have great specials, but the service has always been subpar. I constantly get the same servers who seem to hate there jobs. Don't get me wrong I've had one or two servers before who I try to get a hold of first cause I've been pleased with them,... More

Great beer, knowledgable bartender and good food. We enjoyed trying several New Hampshire beers from the extensive offerings. I was happy to find the Pint Sized Burger on the menu - so nice to have a perfectly cooked burger of a reasonable size! Half priced drafts and appetizers made the experience even better!

Really cool place. Has a homey feel. Really good food and drinks. They have specials depending on what day of the week it is which is such a great idea! They have tons of beer specials too. Went there with some friends for dinner and a drink and had such a good time. There was also a live band playing!... More

Strange brew is a great place to go for happy hour with over 100 beers on tap and something for everyone! Lots of regulars but newbies are very welcome! The food is typical pub style with good fish and chips that won't break the bank! Lots of weekly specials and free popcorn that helps the beers go down! If you... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at this rustic hidden gem in downtown Manchester. The menu was quite varied ranging from steak tips to meatloaf to fish and chips. The beer list was quite extensive and I highly recommend the Melonhead. I loved my thick burger and my husband really enjoyed his steak tips. The service was superb!... More

We were looking forward to an evening of great music and "fun". We had been told about the great bands, great drinks and fun atmosphere. The band was so mediocre, the beers were fairly ordinary and the service was non-existent.

First of all our experience was spoiled by a one hour wait for food with no attention or explanation in between. The place was busy but not full and others who came after us were served before us. Maybe our waitress took a break?? On the bright side the Jambalaya was spicy and hot and worthy of taking the leftovers... More
