This is a place that you need to come, bring a friend or two, and see for yourself. No Food, No Frill, Just Beer and good company. It's nice to drink a beer amongst friends and enjoy something that you have never had. And then, fill up your growler and take some home too. I can't say anymore. A litter hard to get to and a bit out of the way, but makes up for it once you get there.
If you decide to try everything on draft and stay awhile, they have menus if you want to order out for delivery.

Copper Mine looks kind of nondescript from the outside but it's got a lot going on inside. It has around 20 beers on tap. I wasn't too impressed with the bartending but it wasn't bad enough to make it my only visit. The atmosphere was pretty lively on a Saturday night. I like this type of neighborhood bar and I hope I'll be back to Copper Mine more often.

Well copper is pretty much one of my favorite beers in the area. The tap selection is always rotating and here and there something really good will show up. Bottle selection is also great but come on on your at a bar to have some good drafts. If your in the area stop by and check out Copper you will not regret it.

Luckily i work near the copper mine so i'm able to stop over once in a while. This place is great, everything that has been said in other reviews is true. Vito is a good guy and knows his stuff. Every once in a while he'll have an ageable keg from a past year, which is cool (i e weyerbacher quad 2011).
Overall, a great place for the beer enthusiast to stop and kill a few hours.

What Copper Mine Pub lacks in space and decoration, it more than makes up for in other areas. My friends and I frequent this place, at times to the tune of once a week, despite the drive. The owner, although young, seems to have a great grasp on all sorts of beer and the industry as a whole; The bartenders know the beer. Even when its crowded they are very attentive and the other patrons are beer enthusiasts such as myself. They regularly have featured brewery and/or style nights. Last but not least is location. North Arlington is a quiet, safe neighborhood.

I am going to say what has already been said. This place is not the nicest, no fancy tables or decor. It is a beer bar, if I care about fancy looking places I'll go somewhere else. The selection is top notch and the service is great. I do not get a chance to head over here more often but when I do, there is always GREAT beer there. I like how on special nights there is a write up of some of the beers to help me aid in making a choice. No food, but the local beef jerky is amazing. Prices are pretty fair, I mean this is North Jersey here, LL's are expensive. In short, you will not be dissapointed with this place.

My first impression was the aroma, the sweet smell of beer as you open the door. That's how you know they serve true beer and not some macro bullshit. It's nice to see everyone drinking out of the proper glassware. Boy, was this place busy for just a little after 12 a.m. on a Thursday night - I think Dogfish Head Tap Takeover had something to do with that.
The bar looks beat to hell, old and has that hole-in-the-wall bar feel to it - not impressed with the atmosphere at all. The lights were quite dim and hard to appreciate the color of the beer. It seemed a little run down and dirty. It was over-crowded, it is not their fault that the whole bar crowd decided to stand instead of relax at the bar or the tables against the wall. I felt like I was at a concert trying to push my way through the mob to get to the bathroom. Speaking of the bathroom - digusting, old and decrepit looking.
They had a sign of what they had on tap; what seemed ridiculous is they couldn't erase or cross out what kegs they had kicked on the chalk board. Don't advertise what you don't have.
The lines seemed very clean as the beer tasted fresh. The customer service was okay, the bartender was constantly checking his phone but he did serve me a beer when I needed it which is always good.
As far as the place goes, about a dollar more than most of the beers should be. I didn't go during happy hour since I got there late. I am going to give this place another shot but I'm going to go earlier on during the day when its not so hectic. I hope I can give this place a better rating like everyone else who have.

Love it. Simply love it. Just a great bar for beer nuts. Look, I'm not paying for atmosphere. I don't care what songs are on the juke box. And who has time to prep food when the beer is this good? Vito and Company have done a great job. If you're a new beer enthusiast, this is the place for you as the staff is friendly and will answer any questions. If you're a seasoned vet, this is the place for you as the beer selection and beer chat are second to none. Go there. You won't be disappointed!

The Copper Mine is by the the best place to get good quality craft beer in NJ. Vito is an awesome host and the beer always tastes great. The lines are always clean and the selection is never the same. 20 lines and usually a cask or two with a great bottle selection. Everything you have read about this place is true, you need to make your way there if you have never been. After the first time you visit you will make it a regular thing. It is that good. Great atmosphere, great people, great beer its the complete package.

The Copper Mine Pub. I can finally check it off the list of places that I need to check out in my area.
All of the reviews thus far have been great. I had to see for myself to believe it.
The first thing I notice when I walk in. The taps. AMAZING selection. I usually go to the city for the best selection when I go out for beers, but this rivaled any place in the area. Incredible- all styles, breweries, and prices are included here. Something truly for any beer lover.
I went on a Sunday so it was kind of dead, but I am glad I got to speak with Vito for a bit. He appeared to be a really cool down to earth guy who truly knows his beer. The vibe was nice. Beer lovers, yes. Assholes, none that I could see.
The bottles were amazing (although I did not purchase any). The taps just hooked me right in.
I'm coming back. Like, this week. I loved it. Destroys any bar in the area.
