Bad Apple is pretty much across the street from Half Acre. They have a really great draft list. Their menu theme is burgers, with about 20 different concoctions (there’s other things on the menu too). The good food is really delicious. Drafts are great and in constant rotation. There is really cool sculpture art and painting all over the wall. Bad Apple is absolutely worth a visit. If you’re from out of town, hit Half Acre Brewery and then come here for a burger. We had a really weird service moment once. The pour sizes weren’t listed very clearly. Our beer came out in a 16 oz goblet and it was half full. I felt like I was getting shorted. After looking back at the menu we found the pour sizes. We asked the bartender about it and he said "they don’t make glasses that size". Huh...? Pretty sure you can order almost any size/shape glass from the catalog... Other than an awkward misunderstanding, this place has always been pretty cool.
