One of the better beer bars around. Around 30 draft lines in the place with new beers rotating all the time. This is an Irish pub but they really focus on American craft beer mostly on draft with some good bottles as well. Mcladdens gets a lot of the hard to find beer in Connecticut and the latest craft beer releases. The place gets out of control packed on weekend nights which can make it hard to enjoy a tasty brew but good for them, good to see them killing it. Had a founders reds rye, a breakfast stout and loose cannon IPA, all very delicious and fresh. Check this place out but go during the day or on weekday nights so you don't have to stand the whole time or fight a crowd to get a beer. Best selection around Hartford area.

I have been to McLadden's a bunch of times. They have nice location and are a nice addition to West Hartford Center. The place has a good vibe, but not the greatest layout, especially when they get busy. The bar area is very narrow, which makes mingling difficult. The food is good, mostly traditional Irish fair. I also think the food is a tad pricey for what it is, but the beer prices are pretty good. From a beer point of view, they have a very solid tap list. A lot of their local competition seem to struggle at having a consistently solid tap list, but McLadden's always has at least 3-5 great beers on tap, and sometime more. The only complain is that they could have a few, non-Irish, stouts on tap, especially in the winter. Their bottle is also very strong. They easily have 100 bottles to choose from. Overall, a very nice beer bar, which recently has become my go-to location.

Some of the drafts are 10 oz, a little small I think, I would expect a 12 oz to be minimum size but being a Irish pub I would think pint size should be the norm. Food was very good, I had the irish beef stew and it lived up to my expectations , My partner had a panini sandwich which was one of the better ones I have ever tasted. Nice Outdoor seating area although a little small, we went late afternoon so it wasn't very busy. we will definably return. Great selection of drafts.
