Recently opened bar in a new strip mall in Shelton, CT.
There are about 10 or 12 draft lines, but they are stocked with the most generic selection you can imagine.
The good: 60 minute IPA, Hooker Irish Red
Not bad: Long Hammer IPA, Guinness
Everything else: Shocktop, Stella, Bass, Budweiser, Budweiser Light, Hop Hound Amber Wheat, etc etc.
First time I went here, to shoot a game of pool, I ordered a 60 minute IPA from the waitress. She brought me a LongHammer. When I asked her, she apologized and asked me what the difference was.
Mostly, this is not a beer bar, despite the name, so don't get confused.
On the positive, they have a couple nice pool tables, the food is pretty good, and they have large TVs if you want to watch a game. Apparently Friday nights they have an acoustic guitar player and then weekend nights a DJ, so it's not really what you think of when you think of a DRAFT HOUSE.
Hopefully they change up their beer selection, because with that many lines, there is no reason not to have at least a half dozen decent craft brews.

This is definitely not the place to go if you are looking for a true "draft house". Seems they picked the name, before they decided what kind of establishment they wanted.
Food IS really good! Not your typical bar menu. They have more extravegent foods, as well as burgers, etc.
Beer selection is horrible. They have the exact same beer selection in May as they did the day they opened a few months prior. Shock Top, Bass, Bud, etc. They had 2 or 3 Craft Beers... Hooker Red, Long Hammer, and one other IPA i can't recall.
They do not do sample paddles.
It's a sports bar. With pool tables. They have a few tables and chairs. The rest of the place fills up very quickly at night with people standing. Bands and different entertaiment almost each night.
Definitely not a place to go though if you're going for the beer!
