Read about this place on Beer Advocate and had to try it. Nice looking joint that oozes fresh beer. Walked in, not crowded and found a seat at the bar. They were running a special event, the 8 beers of Hanaukah. I'm not Jewish, but, when in Tel aviv...selected the very non-kosher Bahn Mi sandwich. Delicious. Asked the bar keep for a recommend draft and he suggested the He'brew Hop Manna. Perfect foil to the Bahn Mi. Would have loved to have sampled more but had to have a clear head. Wish that I had a bar like this near where I live. I would be there all the time. Great little spot in need of multiple revisits. Try it, you'll like it.

Best place to get a pint and an excellent meal. Staff is amazing and Sunday brunch is best in town. The Sausage and Biscuits is second to none. Highly Recommend.

What can be said about Mikro that hasn't already been said. Basically nothing. Owner Mike has done a fantastic job; the staff, in general has been the same group of individuals for a few years (which I suspect means it is a good place to work), and the craft brew selection is amazing. Sometimes I wish they had a bit more of a regular beer menu, i.e. a few staples that would always be on the menu; but on the other hand, I love just walking in and being surprised. As for the food, it is simple, relatively refined and tasty.
