Default Syracuse NY

My favorite local is Clarks Ale House, they dont have a huge selection but they have a good atmosphere to make up for it.

Clark's Ale House, Syracuse NY

In Salt Lake City there is only one place to go for a truly great beer selection and that is The Bayou. 30+ beers on tap, about 300 more in bottles. Great selection across all styles. Awesome food, good music (jazz, usually) and great service.

Default Fred's

I'd have to say that my local favorite is Fred's Rivertown Alehouse in Snohomish, WA. They have 32 microbrews on tap, a lot of them featuring local breweries like Mac and Jack's, Leavenworth Brewing Company, etc., and over 50 single malt scotches. Food is great, staff is friendly and knowledgable. They have billiard tables, hard point darts, and overlook the Snohomish River.

They also feature cask nights and brewery nights (I think the next one features Full Sail)

A great place. It was the first alehouse I'd been to where you could buy a growler of one of their draught beers to take home.

Okay, here is their beer list:
+1 on Brickskeller.

Look, feel, and selection wins hands down. How can you beat walking downstairs to what appears to be a dirty/dingy basement, and finding the LARGEST beer selection in the world?

It feels like you're in an exclusive speak-easy, back in the prohibition days.

cause it's not the Brick Store?

i mean seriously. There's nothing that holds a candle to it.

I dunno, that Brickskeller place has it beat very easily based on just the beer list (which is really all we can judge a place by on the internets).

The Happy Gnome in St. Paul, MN. It has been on a few different "top 100" bars in the world lists.

They have over 70 craft beers on tap, over 450 different beers in bottle and over 300 varieties of scotch and whiskey.

Oh, I dislike the Yard House.

They have a pretty good selection, but the staff know jack **** about beer, and they are generally surly and rude in my experience. And, they have the same beer list for every location even though some of the taps are different, so you have to sit there looking at all the taps to figure out what isn't on the list.



In the Los Angeles area, Lucky Baldwin's is OK...they have a decent selection of Belgians. But some of the staff there are downright mean, and I don't think they ever clean their beer lines. We finally stopped going there because the ladies of the group would always order wits, and inevitably one of them would taste infected and nasty. Then the server would tell us that's how the beer is supposed to taste, without ever actually tasting it to see for themselves, and would refuse to bring another beer.

My favorite in the area by far is Naja's Place. 80+ different beers on tap and they are constantly rotating in good stuff. The list on the website is old. Lately they have been updating facebook when they change out taps nowadays. Staff are all very friendly and really know their beer. They also have a bunch of stuff in bottles, way more than what's listed on their website, but to be honest I never order the bottled stuff because there's such a great variety on tap.
