“I stopped in recently to catch a couple flights here at Alley Kat. Turns out Kat’s are not born in Alleys. However, the beers born among this alley are top notch. Not only that, my bartender was highly knowledgeable about their product and made fantastic recommendations on the spot. Editors pick: Fish Bone, New England Style Pale Ale. There all good, go check these fine folks out.” – Alexander Philipp
