Located in the Lower Garden District, this American craft beer pub is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! It has over 40 taps (31 rotating) and dozens more regional & national craft brews in bottles.
With 1,200 bottles crammed into a shop the size of your average convenience store, you can spend hours staring at beers from throughout the world.

At Blind Tiger, sip from 28 taps, two casks, and a staggering list of microbrew bottles, large-formaters, and "weird sh*t most people have never heard of". If New York is a city of beer geeks, then Blind Tiger is their mecca.
This is a place where everything, including candied bacon, comes by the pint. But you’re here for the beer, and the island of a bar is stocked with dozens of craft cans (Oskar Blues is particularly prominent) and 60+ taps, with special attention paid to NC brewers like Big Boss, Deep River, and Dark Rabbit.
With its chandelier-lit ambiance and a menu that of charcuterie and cheese boards, you’d be forgiven for thinking Bridge is a wine bar… which it is, and a damn fine one with a five-page menu. But it’s also the city’s best beer, with a 200+ bottle selection and 55 taps that rotate a selection that includes, local favorites and a vast selection from Belgium’s finest breweries.
The renowned beer bar is just as thoughtful with their cheese curation, mixing Fontina with a bit of truffle oil, which is served on ciabatta alongside tomato soup dipping sauce.
Just when you thought walking out of a bar with a beer couldn't be more pleasurable, along comes Craft and Growler, a cozy, Fair Park-area tap room opened by husband-wife attorneys that's dramatically improving the taste of take-home suds.
Helmed by a married couple, Craft Pride's a Rainey St establishment that either sells a) super awesome macaroni angels (!!!), or b) beer from 52 all-TX taps as well as to-go cases of bottles and bombers, all curated by an OG Black Star brewer.
With more than more than 700 bottles available and a huge tap selection of Belgian rarities and favorites, Ebenezer’s has about 1.5 different beers stocked for each of its tiny hometown’s residents.

An upper-scale burger and brew joint, Father's Office does not allow any substitutions on its burgers because, frankly, it knows what's best for you.
Named after Herman Hamilton, a member of the illustrious Montford Point Marines, Hamilton's Tavern is the oldest beer and wine-licensed location in San Diego.

The Hay Merchant and Underbelly share a space on Wesheimer, bringing you badass collections of craft brews (Hay Merchant) and seasonal shared plates made from farmers market produce, fresh seafood, and locally-raised meats.
The City of Roses has over 50 breweries that aren't Breakside, and almost every one of them is represented at no-nonsense Brit pub Horse Brass, which also happens to have the best fish and chips this side of London.
Since opening in 2008, HopCat has become the beer bar go-to for a region that is serious about its suds. There are 48 taps that're heavy on Mitten-state brews (Founders, and Brewery Vivant are right there in town), plus a food menu that includes perfectly sliced, spiced, and beer-battered fries.
This bustling Andersonville bar is the locals' favorite, with its laid-back decor, eclectic music, and the best steamed mussels in town. Hopleaf features 68 beers on tap, over 350 bottled craft brews and imports, and a complete menu.
70+ beers dominate a draught menu divided up unpretentiously by simple flavor profiles – “Tart and Funky”, “Crisp”, “Fruit and Spice” -- at one of the South’s finest drinkeries.
Outside of LeBron, Akron's pride and joy is this comfort food and booze mecca, with 150 bottles, 12 taps, and grilled cheese sandwiches that kids would be weirded out by.
Remember, while hobos are generally seen as bindle-carrying and dirty, the Lord Hobo is living well at the top of the vagabond hierarchy, serving specialty cocktails, beer, and American comfort food in a rich mahogany space with large flat screens.
At this gastropub in The Mission, beer is the total focus. Their specialty is Belgian beers, though the list has 200 rotating beers for every palate.

A Danish spot with 42 beers on tap (including four Mikkellers unique to this location), MB's a European import with a meat-centric menu that includes sausages and thick-cut grilled bacon. A secret bar - Tivoli Sour Room - fills a hidden cellar downstairs.
This Philly beer bar’ll provide you with draft labels like the easily pronounceable Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux and Russian River Damnation, plus an unrivaled bottle catalog (carefully cataloged in their Beer Bible) delivering Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire, Evil Twin Beaster Bunny, and Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot, which clearly tried to pronounce that Dupont.
Opened in the old funeral home that used to house Chapel, this 120-seater's pouring the same number of beers Larry Bird probably drank with Wade Boggs every night after a victory (33) in a vaulted space decked w/ a U-shaped bar built using shelves that held ashes from the crematorium, and a poster in memory of Bruce Lee, whose funeral was held there in '73.
This homey, family-owned joint pours more than 550 craft brews so you can expand your suds palate while taking down all kinds of delicious eats.
Take in all the tap handles, glassware, and bottle upon bottle (as in roughly 1200 of them) of amazing beer, and you'll start to feel like you've stepped into the secret basement hideaway of the world's biggest beer geek. Bring cash. Ask about what's on tap. Prepare to stay a while.
With a clean, coffee-house vibe, a friendly-but-knowledgeable staff befitting one of America's most storied beer states, and an unassailable, all-American 62-strong tap list to match, you won't find any of Milwaukee's most famous brews at The Sugar Maple. Even better -- you'll have your pick from a slew of Badger State breweries.
Each of the historic, brick-and-wood-laden, old-world-style pub’s two floors boasts 106 taps (212 in total), plus 100+ cellar-aged bottles from all over the world. Californian stouts, Flemish Blondes, sours, quadruples, pales? Yup. Rarities from big dogs like Founders and Sierra Nevada, and appearances by smaller locals like Prairie? Of course.
There are two reasons why Taste of Tops is unlike any beer bar in the country: Four of their employees are Certified Cicerones and have an encyclopedic knowledge of beer, and it's connected to a liquor store. Their 24 rotating taps are great, but the real added value is being able to walk into the adjoining liquor store, grab any of their hundreds of bottled beers (including ones from their cellar vintage bottle list) and drink it on the premises in the bar.
