Off Clarendon’s main drag, 11-month-old Green Pig Bistro draws a self-selecting set of craft-beverage enthusiasts who pick beer, wine, and cocktails from a page of the menu titled “the Trough.” Drinkers can snag a stool around the bar or in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows while sipping locally brewed Port City Tidings or a GP Dark & Stormy, with house-made ginger beer, rum, lime, and “tiki” bitters. Insider tip: Every few weeks, the bar hosts a tap takeover with local breweries. Open Wednesday through Monday.
