The wife and I visited Anvil last summer, during an epic Friday weekend in the Montrose area. This is a cool, airy and bright space on Wertheimer, not far from The Hay Merchant. A long bar and a bunch of booths and tables. Wildly popular! Packed at 5pm already on a Saturday.
We sat at the bar and perused the menus- the cocktails here are truly outstanding. This is one of those places where you can tell your bartender "I like bourbon-sour-spice" and they'll make you the best concoction you've ever tasted. I went for their version of a Long Island Iced Tea, which is one of my boozy guilty pleasures. At Anvil, they turn it into the Per Se version of an LI Tea.
They have ten taps with fresh beer, if you really *must* have a brew. During my visit, the lineup was Bombshell blonde, Live Oak Hefe, Real Ale Fireman's, Buffalo 1836, Hopadillo and Hop Delusion.
Prices are reasonable for such good libations, and the staff is excellent. Even when crowded, you won't wait too long.
