The legendary Goat Hill Tavern is everything it has been touted to be by its legions of loyal patrons: a laid-back bar with 132 beers on tap. The ceiling is a clutter with vintage road signs, moose antlers, bicycles and car bodies. Meanwhile, the floor is littered with peanut shells. A whiteboard above the bar lists the beers available in dense writing and can either be daunting to an amateur suds-sipper or a welcome challenge to an enthusiast. Labels include standard domestics such as Coors and Shock Top to more exotic brands such as Lean To IPA, Erdinger Hef and Fire Rock Pale Ale. The service is as quick as can be expected in such a crowded bar, but thankfully, the cocktails are served with a heavy hand. Recreational distractions include a partially open-air patio, where you can play a round of pool or shuffleboard.
