    Food is upscale pub food, great beer list, knowledgeable barkeeps, good music and TVs to watch a game. Every seat is full and they say it's not even busy. The arancini are delish!

    Can't go wrong with the mouthwatering Brat Burger topped with beer-braised sauerkraut, and emmentaler with a side of fries.

    If you aren't sure what kind of beer to get, just ask the bartenders. They are great at helping to find something you'll like, and will usually give you a splash before you commit to full pour

    Everything here is the best. Always. But watch out for Friday and Saturday nights. It's standing room only and totally rough. Check out Drafting Table up the street if you're looking for more space.

    With so many beers on offer, Bailey couldn't possibly settle on just one wing dish, so he created three homemade sauces for his semolina-crusted, twice-fried wings. Read more

    Great atmosphere and very large bar space. This place was crowded on a Tuesday which is a great sign. The Asian wings were tasty but had too much sauce. Awesome beer selection!

    An upstairs/downstairs, beer-focused restaurant and gastropub. At Birch & Barley, order the cavatelli and flounder tartare; at Church Key, Tater Tots and charcuterie.

    Get there early to snag a table (seat yourself). Cheeseboards have tiny portions: opt for flatbread or mac 'n' cheese sticks. S'mores Brownie is insane, and Oliver's Bishop's Indulgence is money!
