This narrow but cavernous space has nearly 40 microbrews on tap on any given night, as well as specialty bottles, a corner dedicated to traditional cask beer (served room temperature), and the option for beer flights (four four-ounce pours for $10). Unexpected pints from domestic cultish brewers like Left Hand and Victory and imported picks are happily grounded with typical pub grub like webbed mounds of nachos, peppered calamari, and chicken wings. Specials running weekdays from 11am to 7pm (and again from 11pm to 1am) draw local off-the-clock swillers, filling booths and high tables with a high-traffic mix of happy-hour die-hards, young co-workers, and longstanding drinking chums. Beer neophytes are welcome—the long-winded menu comes with instructions (seriously) on the art of picking, tasting, and appreciating your pour.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
