I find the Dallas Gingerman a bit stuffy and cramped. The Fort Worth location is more open, maybe because it is less crowded on the weekends. I agree about the Flying Saucer for sure.

Both chains do pint night but Flying Saucer is way over priced. Gingerman gives out pint night beers at normal price and often they are full pints plus the glass for like $5-6. (At least the one in Fort Worth.)

I also like Old Monk because they bring in some interesting beers neither of the other two chains have.

can't believe I had to get to page 10 before this one was listed. Great place.

Toronado is good, but Monk's is better.

And maybe the Brickskellar was good back when this thread started, but it quickly went down hill before it was sold off. As someone pointed out, you had to get to your 5 choice most times before getting something that actually had in stock.

I'll agree with that assessment of Brickskellar. Sadly they got to the point where the bottle list was rarely updated. And for some of the bottles listed (Thomas Hardy vintages, etc) I suspect they may have only EVER had a few bottles. It was certainly one of the grand old dames of beer bars though.

Have to throw some pub for this Omaha beer gem. Best in the country, i doubt it, but it is a great place.

www.beercornerusa.com

This place is the Crescent Moon/Max and Joe's/Uber Hause

Crescent: Great anything micro beer bar. Always rotating taps. Very knowledgable people.
Max and Joes: Belgium come to Nebraska. All Belgium beers. Very informed people.
Uber Hause: Germany come to Nebraska. German beer hall in the downstairs. Get your steins out.

All three unde one roof. Plus the beer store (Beertopia) is attached next door. Great group of people. Very informed and passionate about beer.

Visited Redlight Redlight in Orlando two weeks ago, and was pretty well impressed. Nice draft selection and great bottle selection. I wish we had a place similar here in Fort Lauderdale.

My vote is for the Latona Pub here in Seattle. I think they have 14 taps that are constantly changing. Beers come from not only the NW but the great breweries from San Diego to Colorado to NY. Great food and a nice cozy environment.

+1 on Monks Cafe in Philadelphia.
+1 on Gingerman in Houston by Rice. Gotta love my hometown for that place.

I travel frequently to Salt Lake City and would recommend The Beerhive downtown. Great selection. Food used to be outstanding, but when the Austrian restaurant closed next door their food went downhill. Now mainly crummy bar fare. Excellent beer list both on tap and bottles. Super cool bar with a refrigerated strip right on the bar to keep your brew cool. Not all brews benefit from that temperature, but I love that option.

If you ever get Kansas City:
1. Swagger. Neighborhood bar featured on Diners and Dives. Around 35 beers on tap, another 60 or so in bottles. Food is good. A step up in quality from typical bar fare. For a neighborhood bar it is outstanding! Serve in proper glassware as well.
2. Barleys Brewhaus. Suburban location. Nearly 100 on tap. They specialize in tap beers. Food is good.
3. Charley Hoopers. Another neighborhood bar with a respectable tap and bottle selection. Standard but tasty bar fare.
4. Flying Saucer. Service is typically indifferent, food mediocre, overpriced. However, the beer selection cannot be denied. We rarely go there because of the service and generally overpriced and crappy food.

I love brickstore in atlanta. You guys that have been there and like it should also check out the porter in little five points. Thirsty monk in asheville is also a lovely place to get drunk
