Profile

Aside from a few pieces of Norse weaponry, the most telling sign that this is Valhalla—the fabled afterlife party for Viking warriors—is the ubiquity of beer. Forty-three taps—with one handle fashioned to look like a skeleton; another, like a snowman—protrude from behind the light-wood bar like a row of forearms ready to wrestle. On the shelves behind, candles illuminate beer bottles with a reverence generally accorded to stained glass. Though a pair of flat-screens and a couple of spiffy ceiling fans resembling metal boat propellers suggest an effort to spruce things up, the tidy, light wood that predominates is decidedly not fancy: for instance, the picnic tables where reformed Bud guzzlers sample brews like Dead Guy Ale or uncork bottles of Tremont, one of 50 beers, ciders, and mead available by the bottle.
