It's a sweet formula: 500 beers, ales, lambics and stouts from just about every corner of the globe, live music, a largely professional crowd and servers that know an Ayinger Brau-Weisse from a Weltenburger Hefe-Weizen Hell at a squint. The hophead's dream destination features a clean, snug indoor area, long bar, a VIP loft and an outdoor seating area, which is the only place smoking is permitted. In addition to beer and wine, both of which can consumed on location or purchased to go, the bar sells pretty good stogies.
