    A rotating draft selection. IPAs are prevalent, but there's something here for everyone, and they kill it on craft selections. Bar staff knows the offerings, easy to find a winner. Hidden gem.

    If you love beer, come here. It's divey, but you'll be happy you came. Rotating beers from all the best breweries. Cheap eats, patience is required with service on busy nights. Best open mic in Ec

    Very quaint bar with excellent craft beer choices. And, might I mention the selection of every Scotch possibly made. Definitely go for the flight to get a small taste of what they have to offer.

    If its open, check out the upstairs with a foosball table, darts (ask for them from the bar), and a TV/lounge w/views down Main Street from the windows

    Seek out owner Mike and talk beer with him. Enjoy any of the 17 diverse taps and another 50 or so well selected bottles.

    Definitely has that dive atmosphere, but the draft beer selection is plentiful and the bar tenders are always friendly.

    Home to a noisy ghost who likes to flush toilets when no one is around and has haunted this old tavern for many years.

    $2 dollar domestics or Rails on Tuesday night. Usually there is good tunes for the open mic also.

    Step out of your comfort zone. Don't be like the guy I saw this weekend asking if they had Bud.
