Man, that does look great! I'd love to go to the GABF and this would be a 'must stop' for me.

I went with the girlfriend last weekend to LaCrosse, WI and I have to put a word in for the Bodega Brew Pub. Check out their beer list. A nice place where you can street watch and sample a great selection of beer. She & I were there for several hours, drank more beers than I can count and the whole bill was $35.00. Cheap by Chicago standards! My favorites were Moose Drool and City Winter Porter on tap and Tyranena's Rocky's Revenge Bourbon Brown in bottle.

Suds & Suds in Corvallis, OR (home of Oregon State University). This pub was never very crowded and I understand why. They have a coin-op laundromat in the back and about 50 different beers of the world available up front (hence the name Suds & Suds). Needless to say, I did my laundry there pretty frequently.

The other cool thing was that you got a punch card and if you drank every beer on the menu you got your name engraved on a plaque on the wall and a free t-shirt that says "I drank my way around the world at Suds & Suds". What more incentive does one need? I loved it.

did i see a segment about suds and suds on the food network the other day?

Two things make a great beer bar IMO: 1) at least 60 beers available that are thoughtfully chosen to represent the myriad of styles of beer. Unlike the bar here that has 100 beers and 25 of them are amber ales.
2) GAMES...pool, golden tee, darts, shuffleboard, a card table, and a beer pong table is a definite plus.

Boondoggles Pub in El Lago, TX

It's just a couple miles down the road from the Johnson Space Center.

50 draft beers and more than 60 bottled beers, including almost twenty beers from four different Texas breweries. Great specialty pizzas, sandwiches and appetizers. Steaks on Monday, Texas-themed food on Tuesday, big beer on Wednesday, crawfish, crab and shrimp on Thursday, and fish & chips on Sunday. Really awesome environment, tons of wood everywhere, wood-burning pizza oven, and a fireplace. Very cozy. And oh yeah, I work there.

Interesting - that's right by work! To bad they're not open for lunch. I'll have to make sure to hit it one of these days on a Friday or something.

They used to call it "Good beer's American Cousin".
