Pretty much any bar in town can say it has German beer -- it’s really not hard to find. However, since that could technically mean it has a single bottle of Lowenbrau from the ‘80s, you should hit Biergarten if you want the real stuff. It's the first place in town to pour German lagers Zunft Kölsch and Bitburger (the official beer of the German national soccer team), and the drafts also include names you’re probably familiar with (Spaten Optimator), plus stuff for people who might actually be German immigrants, including weizens from König Ludwig, Krombacher, and Weihenstephan.
Stop zooming past this Memorial Drive beer post, because a) there are police traps just waiting for you to go one mile over the 35mph speed limit, and b) you can stop here and drink great beer! Though the building looks small from the street view, it has big-time brews inside -- 28 craft taps and more than 20 bottles and cans, to be exact. You can get as basic as PBR or Lone Star, or as fancy as Jekyll Export Stout, Highlander Strong Scotch Ale, Kattegat Baltic Porter, or Terrapin Mosaic, which is quite nice this season.
Formerly called “The Fred,” then renamed (but available only to Taco Mac's “Brewniversity” members who’d scored enough points to be deemed worthy), then closed, and now reopened, Chapter Room is a speakeasy-style basement enclave, with barrel-inspired design and cozy red leather roller-chairs. It boasts exclusive beer (Cedar Creek Dankasaurus IPA, Orpheus Minotaur sour/wild ale, etc.), plus upscale cocktails, wine, and snacks like bacon-wrapped figs.
