Default Best Beer Bars in America

How about a thread where we put together a list of some of the best pubs in the states. I'll start.

Toronado - San Francisco, CA - I would guess that this is the best beer bar in the country. It has a ton of diversity, a nice Belgian focus, and access to really rare beers. Not much ambiance, and no food. Come for the beer!

My first vote goes to The Ginger Man in Houston, Texas. They claim to have the most beer on tap in H-town. Good import and domestic variety, cool atmosphere in the Rice Village.

My second vote goes to Hogs N Heifers in NYC. Well, because of the babes that cuss at ya and dance on the bar!

Cheers!

My favorites would be:

For selection and ’beer knowledge’: The Map Room in Chicago (http://www.maproom.com/). I go there as often as I can. No food, but a fantastic beer selection. They even host a ‘beer school’.

Real Pubs: Quigley’s Irish Pub in Naperville, Illinois, a Chicago suburb (http://quigleyspub.tripod.com/). A pretty close recreation of a real Irish pub right here in the States. The owners dismantled much of a pub in Ireland that was destined for the wrecking ball and moved it here. They have good food, a decent selection of beers, live music most nights and a real mix, from college kids to seniors.

Brewpub: Great Dane Brewing in Madison, Wisconsin (http://www.greatdanepub.com/). I go once a year to a model train show and always stop in here and take home at least three growlers! This place is hard to beat. And this is coming from a guy who can zip over to Goose Island in Chicago (http://www.gooseisland.com/) anytime he wants!

Are you sure it's not Hogs-n-Honeys? There is a bar in Gatlinberg TN that has the babes dance on the bar and cuss at you. They also make you get on your knees to give you a dance for a shot! Ahhhh!

Blackhorse Pub and Brewery, Clarksville, TN

Just an awesome place. Great beer and a cool room above the restaurant that is called the tap room. 20 different kinds of tap brews and great atmosphere. When I was stationed there it was a regular hangout. I've yet to find anything remotely close to that place here in Virginia.

Yep, It's Hogs-N-Heifer's in NYC. It's in the meat packing district (lower east side maybe?). Only been once, and was tore up! It's the one they made Coyote Ugly after. Inside doesnt look anything like the movie. Real small, old biker bar, bras towering from above the bar
A for sure place to stop and have a beer when in NYC, at least once!
