    Beer Rev is a great spot. Friendly hosts, quality beer, and no pretension. Reminds me of Hamilton's in San Diego. Grab food from Souley Vegan (next door) and stay a while.

    Buying a four pack of beers to drink on their porch was like going through a blue law secret handshake. But the suds are tasty, if a tad on the intellectual side.
