    VIBE

    The handsome interior décor (dark wood, exposed stone, and industrial furniture) and hipster-folksy touches (chalkboard menus and mason jars used for glasses) give this lively bar an urban-meets-rustic feel. On the other hand, the exterior is pretty sweet too − the open-air patio terrace makes this the perfect place for warm weather imbibing and dining. We love to get here early in the evening to casually sip brews, snack on their Southern-inspired sandwiches and sides, and enjoy the atmosphere before it gets too packed later on.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    A casual going-out getup will do. We’d do skinny jeans and a cute pair of sandals.

    CROWD

    Younger set; hipsters; 30-somethings

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    The beer selection is great. Just on tap, you can choose from Great Lakes Porter, Green Flash West Coast IPA, and a few seasonal beers (canned brews are, of course, available as well). The great brews, reasonable prices, good mix of people, outdoor patio, chill vibe, and very cool décor all make this a new favorite of ours.

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    It gets loud and crowded late at night, which makes it tough to carry on a conversation.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    If crowds don’t appeal to you, come early. Also, they don’t have a cocktail menu, but these bartenders know what they’re doing, so you’ll be in good hands if you decide to order one. The bar is housed in a former garage, with the open front patio the former front of the garage.
