Mellow Mushroom is widely known for their pizza and trivia night. While both of those are excellent, their beer selection tends to fly under the radar. There are of course the obligatory big brewery selections, but Mellow does a great job of offering craft brews at decent prices. They price their pints at $4, $5, and $6 a pint, with their happy hour price dropping the $4 and $5 pints to $2, at least on Tuesdays. They also have excellent pitcher deals on Wednesday nights which complement their trivia night well. Having a pitcher of local Starr Hill for less than $10 is an excellent deal not to be ignored. Their beer list is constantly being updated, and thus there is constant variety. In addition to their reasonable prices and decent selection, Mellow has a beer card that allows you to "sign off" on the number that corresponds to the beer on the menu, and if you complete the entire list you're rewarded with a custom glass. This is a great way in which they encourage craft brews to a larger market. This is especially excellent when many of the craft brews are $2 thanks to the happy hour special. Overall a recommended place to grab a pizza, answer trivia questions, and enjoy a modest selection of craft brews.

A great addition to the Corner, despite being stuck in the same walls as the hellish Red Roof Inn at the far end. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff attractive and friendly. The food is great - excellent pizza. And of course, an extensive and well-considered beer list with the chain's usual attention to local and regional offerings. There are about two dozen draft selections with a couple of interesting bottles (hopslam today. Seriously). The drafts were divided into easy-to-comprehend categories and the offerings are worthy - a few imports, a nod to good national offerings (Founders, Left Hand, and Anderson, for example), with some nice locals - Starr Hill and an IPA each from Foothills in North Carolina and Terrapin in Georgia stood out. A family-friendly, cozy place that is well worth the trip to the less hip end of the Corner.
