This post is old as hell, but I second Thirsty Bear! It's worth it for the cask-conditioned ale alone. They tap their cask on Tuesdays, I think. They have other interesting beers (a great IPA, citrusy and complex, and a vanilla lager), but the cask-conditioned ale is $3 on Tuesdays and incredible. I don't know how they do it in the UK, but this one wasn't too bitter - it was fruity and complex, and it knocked me on my a$$ after two glasses.
Also, I used to live a block from Toronado - it's like a grizzled beer heaven in there. And 21st Amendment's watermelon wheat is pretty interesting if you're into fruited beers.
