Dark wood paneling and wicker barstools combine with a soaring ceiling and exposed ductwork to give this beer spot a cool, old-meets-new vibe. Resist the urge to play it safe and instead take advantage of the long menu, which includes 13 pages of bottles plus another page and a half of drafts. General manager Thor Cheston, the beer sommelier, is happy to answer questions and offer samples before you commit. Belgian fare—such as frites and mussels prepared several ways—is a perfect complement to the brew.
