Schooner Tavern

This is a working person's bar bar, no ferns or anything fancy. It was built shortly after prohibition ended and they haven't done much with it since. Good beer selection and if you show up on the right night they have a meat raffle. Good neighborhood fun.

Its an old bar across the river from Down Town with well worn tables, decent music in the background where people can go and talk and have a beer and if they are hungry, a pretty good burger. The people are friendly and the bar is comfortable.

Best brewery taproom in the DMV. Good foodtrucks outside. Dogs and children welcome. Nice glassware and lots of options including R&D beers. Too bad the beer isnt better.... although it has improved and some of the stronger ales are excellent.

The country store has a sneaky good selection of beer. Found some gems in the back. The pizza easily makes my top 10 list and the beer menu is great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

This is a really cool spot. Seemed like it took a while to get my beer, but they serve flights to keep you happy. I was surprised with how much beer they had available. I left with more than I thought I would.

Gift shop had a cool selection of Smutty gear. Also had a lot of beer available, including Smuttlabs. Went next door to Hayseed. They pretty much have every beer on tap. They had a few on cask as well. 5 or 6 guest beers too.

Of all the places in Utah, this is the best place to go to for a beer. There is also the Beer Bar and the Bayou, but the Beerhive wins. I find their beer selection better and a little cheaper than the latter two. This place has a very nice bar atmosphere while the other two seems to be trying too hard to be 'different.' When you're in SLC, stop here.

I showed up on a Wednesday evening and there were no patrons in the place. I walked up to the bar and struck up a conversation with the tender. She was very pleasant, telling me that some Wednesdays it's wall to wall, I just chose a good one. She was quite knowledgeable about beer and more than willing to share. As there were no other people there, she offered me a tour of their system. Great place, solid beer, I'll be back!

This is a brewery is a really cool space, and had some really solid beers on tap. I really liked their DIPA. The place is small, and got a little noisy on a cold fall day in Michigan, but I would imagine that they are always full of happy locals and people traveling through the region. Cool spot! I hope to get back there again soon!

A small but nice beer and wine store. The selection is slight compared to other places, yes, but intelligently chosen and they fill up their small space. Strong on seasonals. Friendly staff. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Hole in the wall liquor store with a very nice selection of limited beers. Does not have all the latest and greatest weekly releases from Pipeworks, Spiteful, or other Chicago locals, but does keep an updated list on beer menus and has a very helpful staff. They keep some stock (beers with bottle limits and such) in the office, which is apparently locked after 4pm; as a result, they are happy to pull beers out and hold them for you if you call in advance.

Lots of high-quality stuff that I would never have expected to still be on shelves anywhere.

Hands down THE best shop in Portland. Only possible gripe is some of the selection is scattered, but if you bring in your list (they have a list online updated every Tues and Fri), the staff knows exactly where to find all of the beers. Cash price is cheaper than debit. Cream of the crop in the city.

Shades Bar and Grill

Was looking forward to Shades given the other BA reviews. When I got there it was a disappointment, though. It's a sports bar with a nice draft beer selection. Appetizers were overpriced, couldn't bring myself to get one. The food selection was lame and overpriced, I settled on a pizza, excuse me a "flatbread" which was just meh. There were TVs everywhere, I couldn't get away from a screen. Service was decent, but it wasn't busy. The only thing this place has going for it is the expansive beer selection. If their tortilla chips were free instead of seven bucks, I would not have got such a negative vibe off this joint.

Uncle Ernie's Bayfront Grill & Brew House

Funny that I live in the Boston burbs and I've been to Uncle Ernie's more times than the Union Oyster House. They have an indoor dining area and a patio, and I've always chosen the patio. They can accommodate big parties no problem, which is a huge plus. Service has been both hit and miss, depending on how busy they are, and on the individual server. Their beer sampler is awesome, a platter tray of 12 beers that puts all other flights to shame. Their seafood is good from what I hear, but I don't like gulf fish, I'm a north Atlantic fish guy. So I go with a steak or their fantastic 3/4 lb cheeseburger. As expected for the north coast beaches, they have delicious key lime pie. It's thick as a brick and so filling I save half for breakfast. Bottom line is that the only reason to not go to Uncle Ernie's is that you've been there a bunch of times and would like something else for a change.
