For the past six years, Kraftwork has punched up its craft beer reputation, thanks to constantly updated draft lists sporting everything from Lagunitas ScareCity #3 to hefeweizen to Mad Elf. The 25-tap gastropub has tumblers for the extra thirsty, and there’s plenty of happy hours to go around. Try the lunchtime noon-4pm happy hour for half-priced menu items, the 4-6pm happy hour for $7 flights, or the late-night happy hour (10-11pm) for 12 hand-picked, discounted drafts.
Fountain Porter is yet another purveyor of local brews, with a list of 20 drafts updated weekly. During happy hour, drafts are $1.50 off, and if all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a $5 burger.
Hidden in what looks like your mechanic’s shop, Garage masters low-key ambiance with arcade games and a bring-in-whatever-you’re-eating food policy. Besides that, you can easily spend a great deal of time combing through the lengthy beer menu, divided alphabetically by brewery for domestics, imports, IPAs, stouts, and pale ales. To help maneuver your way through the intimidatingly long list of options, you can always opt for Garage’s ongoing beer specials, where one domestic and one import is highlighted for the week.
