I stopped in here with my wife last night as we were craving some spicy boneless wings and a beer or two after a two-day drive. I didn't expect anything even remotely decent beer-wise, as the few times I've patronized this particular chain I've always been disappointed.
I sat down, opened the drink menu, and found the usual list of macros plus the generic "ask your server about additional local options" - which has always meant something like Sam Adams or Long Trail. You can imagine my surprise when my server (who was extremely friendly and helpful, btw) suggested that I take a look at the craft beer menu - that's right, they now have an entire three-page menu dedicated to craft beer, with emphasis on they hoppy offerings that pair well with wings. The first page was 12oz bottles (all $6), the middle page their 14 craft draft lines ($6/pint, $7/"tall"), and the final page was amazingly cheap (for a restaurant) bombers, with prices ranging from a mere $8 up to $12 - Ruination was only $10!.
I got a pint of Raging Bitch, then one of Stone IPA - both went great with my meal. Other breweries on offer included Dogfish Head (India Brown Ale and Raison D'Etre), Sebago, Ballast Point, Coronado, Rogue, and North Coast (Old Rasputin was one of the few malty options). I'm sure I'm forgetting a few, as there were a dozen bombers and more 12oz bottles on the list. There wasn't anything crazy, but everything was legit.
My only complaint about the beer was that it was served a bit too chilly, but that's nothing that a little patience won't remedy. All in all I was absolutely blown away by the quality and selection offered by a chain - someone there obviously put some serious effort into improving their craft beer selection, and I only hope that such improvement is going on chain (and industry) wide.

I probably am the wrong person to review a chain Grill and Bar, but I'll try to be merciful...
A chain restaurant in a mall. As bad as that sounds, I just wanted a beer while the wife ran into a store. Well, I got what I deserve...
TV's all around, gift shops, mostly shitty beer and average reheated, frozen food. Beer selection was basically all majors except for Blue Point, Kona, and Red Hook (no local New England Brewing Company?!?!?!).
On the bright side, the bartenders were nice to look at and friendly.
Basically this just re-affirmed my disdain for chain restaurants/bars/stores/etc.

I'll stop into this place every once in a while if i'm in the mall shopping and i wanna sit down for some food and have a beer. It's pretty much just like any other BWW you've been too. TV screens everywhere playing every sporting event known to man. The selection is decent sonidering it's a corporate chain. They have 20 some odd beers on tap with all ur standard macros. They usually switch off about 3 or 4 with something new and interesting. last time i was in they had a blue point, olde burnside, kona and some other craftier brew. Nothing special, but still not something ur would expect at a chain sports bar. The food is ur basic burgers, sandwhiches, salads and of course - wings. They usually run specials a couple days a week on beers and wings, all u can eat type stuff. The srevice is relatively good, like anywhere else it depends on what day and time u go in and who u have for a waiter/bartender. I've had both really good and really bad service here.
Not exactly a beer bar but if ur lookin for somewhere to pound some wings and have a couple decent beers, i'd recomend it. plus u can watch all the sports u want without arguin with ur buddies over whether u wanna watch the yankees or the red sox.

The B-Dubs (as we've named it) is actually at the CT Post mall on the upstairs floor in the newer section of the mall. The beer menu is not stellar and is mostly stuff you can find at any other bar. They have a few gems, like Blue Point Seasonals, Redhook beers, and a decent selection of Michelob's stuff. They also usually have an import or two which is usually Stella and Hoegarden. The prices for the beer are pretty good, especially when they run their specials, but this place is mainly about the wings. Their wings are pretty good, but what makes them better is the amount of sauces they have to choose from. Their philosophy must have been the more the merrier because they have a ton of sauces to choose from. The service is usually speedy and really good and the prices aren't too bad. But again, this place is about creating a chain sports bar atmosphere.
