Karl Strauss Brewing Company’s Little Italy location offers the craft beer giant’s signature brews, like the Wreck Alley Imperial Stout, made with darkly kilned malts, cocoa nibs, and Ethiopian coffee beans, and the Red Trolley Ale with caramelized malts, hops, and hints of raisins and currants. Complement your boozy beverage with some equally beer-y bar bites: Karl Strauss food favorites include The Big Beer Burger, basted with Columbia Street Amber and topped with Red Trolley Ale onions, IPA mushrooms, beer-brined bacon, Gruyere, tomato, and lettuce. Or, opt for earthy truffle fries, duck fat pretzel bites, beer-braised smoked pork belly, or the gooey crowd-favorite mac and cheese.

The beauty of Karl Strauss is that it brews a multitude of different beer types, all exceptionally well, the most well-known of which is the inimitable Red Trolley Ale. Karl’s take on an Irish Red has won a slew of gold medals at the World Beer Cup and the Great American Beer Festival, and it rose to international renown at a time when the city was primarily known for its extremely hoppy IPAs. Red Trolley aside, Karl also makes award-winning brews across the spectrum, including its Mosaic Session IPA and Windansea Wheat. Check the location for days and hours of operation, along with pickup and delivery options.
