    Here's what you're gonna do. Order the 2 pints & 2 lbs. of wings. Beers: Lost Coast Apricot Wheat & Bent River Jalapeño Pepper Ale. Order 1/3 each of tang, dry rub, and mexican wings. Then die happy.

    I can't begin to praise this bar enough: great food, awesome atmosphere and staff, and a stellar tap and bottle list. If you are in town and love beer you must visit.

    With so many options on tap, it's hard to know where to start. I recommend something local. Avoid the big name breweries you can get back home. Experience something you can't normally enjoy.

    This place has been called a "Top 200 Bar in America" many years by Draft Magazine. But, you don't need them to tell you that. One visit and you'll know it.

    Bring a few buddies and try the "Two Pounds, Two Pints" deal, where you can fill up on any of the 10 flavors of wings and 104 beers on draft. Try the Mexican wings, made with a spicy wet sauce.

    Voted #4 in our reader-determined Top 50 Bars. Few bars can impress beer lovers like el Bait Shop. With more than 100 beers on tap and another 170 in bottles, they will have a brew you like. 続きを見る

    If you can't find a beer you like in this establishment, then you should be "suds-free" in your alcohol consumption. The food is pretty good too!!!!

    I'm a cider beer fan, and I already knew I loved Strongbow, Woodchuck, and Ace Pear. But I tried the Woodpecker and Sutliff, and the Woodpecker on tap was waaay better.
