I've been meaning to check out Pitcher's Pub but given its somewhat remote location, it's taken me a while. But I finally made it. Pitcher's Pub is a local watering hole that has added a bunch of taps for craft beer. It's similar in concept to Doherty's and Track 84.
The atmosphere is busy with lots of people that appear to be local and regulars. The decor is nothing special but it's sufficient. The room isn't that big and fills up pretty easily.
The beer selection includes local New England beers, a few other US beers and some imports. I'm guessing there were about 20 taps with at least as many in the bottle. They also had a beer engine for hand pulled beers but I didn't get to ask if they had anything on. I went with a Blue Point Hopticle Illusion and it was nice and fresh.
Pitcher's Pub is basically a BMC sports pub with a craft beer selection. If it was local to me, I'd go but otherwise it's not really worth the effort to get there. It's got a decent selection but it lacks the selection and atmosphere of better beer bars.

Visited Pitcher's on a Saturday afternoon. I've been wanting to hit this place for a while and the opportunity finally presented itself. About 3 miles off of exit 10 on 295N, it's pretty easy to get too. Not a large place, but nice tavern atmosphere. Lots of wood and good sized bar. Tap list was outstanding, so I didn't even check the bottle list:
Left Hand Milk Stout & Saw Tooth
Cisco Grey Lady
Duchesse De Bourgogne
Newport Storm Blueberry
Great Divide DPA
BBC Coffee House Porter
Ten Penny Scottish Ale
Z Street Mocha Java Stout
Avery Maharaja & Ellie's Brown
Magic Hat Irish Red
Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat
Heavy Seas Loose Cannon
Hearty pub fare - had the Calamari, Nachos and a Burger. All reasonably priced and very satisfying. Service was excellent. The bartender/waitress was very friendly and attentive and used style appropriate glassware when she served us.
Great experience and definitely plan on going back again soon.

I've gone to Pitcher's Pub a couple of times and each time has been a good experience.
They have some good beer reads such as the Yankee Brew News to read and they offer table games and trivia if you want to play a game while you're there. The atmosphere is very relaxing and has a local bar feel to it.
The beer selection is good. I had a Clown Shoes Tramp Stamp and a Lagunitas Little Sumthin Sumthin. I tried part of a sample of the Lagunitas Brown Shugga.
This place is a great spot to just hang out and try some good beer and watch a game.

Pitchers pub. It's a sports bar. OK I get it. It is also a Budwieser bar. 4 of the taps are bud products and one is Coors light . The rest of the remaining taps break down like this ...: 4 bluepoint, 2 dogfishhead, 1 long trail, 1 berkshire and one newport storm. I had no idea whether or not they had any bottled beer other than bud light (cuz several folks had them in front of them). Looking around the bar there were no signs or stand up coolers to indicate any other craft beer seletions other than what was on draft. But I did ask and was handed a list of "40" beers some of which appeared to be on tap. Some that I knew for certian were no longer available in RI and as I asked about each of them the bartender confirmed my suspicions. The bartender although appeareing to be knowledgable about beer served every beer ( without heisitation and without asking) in a frosted glass. I also had to wait more than 5 minutes from every empty glass I had until I was asked about my next beer (and yes I did time it each time) The waitress waiting on the tables had no idea what a Hefe-weisen (or a Wit) was. And was completely befuddled by what a Dogfish was.
Food; my burger was OK but the corned beef in my companions rueben made her sick.
I don't think I need to rush back here.

I tried this place on Saturday, 9/2/06 around 9pm.
Small place, but looked very well-kept and was remarkably well-lit. It was busy but not packed and there was a musical performer playing. A very relaxed atmosphere overall.
I was welcomed very warmly when I sat at the bar and the service quite friendly and knowledgable about the beer. The selection was excellent for a place in this area. A lot of the beers they have aren't available in most liquor stores, much less a bar. Many of the 12-15 beers on-tap were ones that I hadn't seen on-tap before.
The food was pretty good, although I just had a simple burger, but I went there for the beer and not the food anyway. The price was quite reasonable. I paid about $20.00 plus tip for the burger and 3 pints.
I highly recommend the place and I plan on going back whenever I get the chance.

Went with my wife last Saturday (5/31) while on a shopping trip to Yankee Spirits. I had read about the place here on BA, and had been looking forward to trying it. We got there about 5:30, and got two seats at the bar.
Nice three sided bar with taps in one corner; various tables in the rest of the space; which is not big, but adequate. Immediately struck up a conversation with two guys that were leaving; talked about Cooperstown, cellaring, etc. Every person or group on both sides of us, which all seemed to know each other (where were Cliff and Norm?), all very friendly and made us feel like home; even the scratch golfer drinking Mich Ultra next to us.
Great deal there, six 7 oz. beers for $8.00; yikes! My wife got one and it is lots of beer for sure to be served at once. One guy who was leaving even said he decided to stay to watch her try to finish all those glasses.
They had about 20 taps I think, including the Scaldis that Frank tapped while we were there. St. Bernardus Abt 12 was in house, some nice Leffe Brown, Rogue Chocolate Stout, and many that frankly I can't remember. OK, not a world class selection, but far, far better than usual. Worth the 30 mile drive for sure.
We first ate nachos; there were so many that the 2 of us couldn't finish them without the threat of ruining dinner and more beers. I ordered their steak sandwich with fries, my wife had a burger. Sandwich was excellent; nice and juicy, and the fries were really good. Great pub food.
My wife had one or two beers plus the $8.00 sampler, I had 4-5 beers; the burger, nachos and steak sandwich and our bill was about $60! Wow, if this were Boston it would have been $110, and free parking to boot! A keeper. Thanks Frank and company for a fun evening.

Pitcher's doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you walk in the door it has a nice feel to it... almost like a family restaurant. The relatively small space is cut in half- bar on the left, tables on the right.
My first (and so far, only) visit was on a Southern Tier promo night, so I can't fairly judge the draft selection, since at least 10 were dedicated to ST that night. But the other taps included a couple from BBC and Left Hand Milk Stout (on nitro). They have a hand pump as well. I quickly looked over the bottle list and was surprised to find some things you don't often see. (And yes, there is Bud Light on tap also.)
I only had a few bites of a burger and fries, but they were good. Menu was mostly bar food - sandwiches, appetizers, etc.
I look forward to going back again when it's not so crowded, so I can sample some more food and more thoroughly explore their complete beer list.

Went for the first time last night. The place is tiny and in the middle of nowhere - kind of out of the way for me. They had a good selection of beers, though there was a Bud Light tap handle mixed in with the craft beer. They had some German, Belgian, and American craft beers on tap (about 12 taps total it seemed). I had an Unearthly IPA and a Berkshire Coffeehouse Porter. Both tasted good and fresh.
My only complaint is that the bartender seemed disinterested in helping me. Several of the tap handles were turned so the labels were facing the bartender and not the customers. I found that annoying and she didn't seem overly interested in reading them to me.
The atmosphere was OK, kind of like a sports bar. There was no music playing when I got there, but some started later on. Last call was at midnight, which I am not used to, but considering it really is in the middle of nowhere, I don't imagine they get overly packed on a regular basis.

Pitcher's Pub is a fantastic place that is run by great people! I first found out about Pitcher's about a year ago - it is a little difficult for me to get to from Providence so I only make it there occasionally but always look forward to the visits that I do make. They always have great Belgians on tap sometimes Germans too and they always have a nice selection of American craft brew.
The food is pub food but the burgers are hand made with fresh ground beef and the steak sandwich is awesome!
It's sometimes difficult to get a seat at the bar but that is for a good reason...

Been planing on going here for some time and I am happy that I finally went. Was lucky enough to go here on the night of the Newport Storm tasting.
You would think with a name like Pitcher's Pub this would be a sports bar but it is not. Nice bar that sits around 16-20 and an area with tables that sits around the same. Couple tv's, keno, your regular bar stuff. The bartender Sara knew about the beers and made recommendations. Asked us if we wanted a frosted or warm glass. When me and my buddy showed up the place was quiet but it filled up pretty quick with the usual patrons and some people that were here for the tasting. Sara was on top of things and kept our glasses full even though the place was busy. We met the owners Mark and Frank. They had two or three commercial brews on tap and the rest were from, Southern Tier, Harpoon, Bluepoint, Newport Storm, Lagunitas. The beer was fresh and was told the selections change all the time. Had the specials that were on the board and the food was good. Ended up spending $25 for food, some drink and a tip.
This is a really nice place. It is much needed for this part of the state. Definitely will be going back.
