Location Description:

Formerly known as The Stable, this bar/restaurant a shrine to great beer. There are two dozen brews on tap, most of which you won't find on draft or in bottles at other area bars. The list of bottled brew is as extensive as a fine restaurant's wine list. The menu features food that is primarily beer-friendly: pizzas, sandwiches and shared appetizers. The pizzas are good, with a soft-but-still-chewy crust. Here, sandwiches are known as "grinders" and include several loose-meat selections. In the late evening, local cover bands and blues acts grace the club's small stage; they sound great reverberating off the lofty ceilings.
