So I finally got a chance to stop by the Map Room. Overall, this was a rather chill bar that was a bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip if you are a beer lover. They have about 20 taps and a ton, ton of bottles. The whole back of the menu was filled up with all of the bottles that they had with tiny font and no spaces. The bartenders were all nice and actually knew their beers, which was nice. Additionally, every beer that we had was served in the proper glassware which made it nice to enjoy fully. There was a pool table in the back of the bar for people to play if they wanted. There was not too much seating because it was a small bar but had a few high tables and seats on the black wood bar. I really liked it and would definitely say to go back. They have a lot of Belgians on tap, which are sometimes are to find, and they also had Surly Bender, Founder's Red Rye, St. Bernardus Abt 12, Avery's Collaboration not Litigation, which is made with the help of Russian River, FFF Alpha King, and Delirium Tremens. Another nice thing about the place is that there website is usually kept up to date so that you can actually see what they have on tap and in bottles. They did just get in some new Dark Horse bottles and even had a Dark Horse Amber on tap as well.
One thing to note is they do not serve any food at all so a good place to hit up before or after dinner.

This bar has international personality, a true "travelers tavern". Exceptional draft program showcasing domestic and European brews equally. Their bottled list offers 100+ selections from all over the world. If you stay too long they have you covered to recover with a full espresso and coffee bar.
