There's a place in Halifax called Maxwell's Plumb that has 60+beers on tap. They also have free salted peanuts to help keep you thirsty. Big trouble in little maritimes...

When I lived in Atlanta my favorite place was Taco Mac on Johnsons Ferry Rd.
Low ceilings, dark wood bar, swivel bar stools with arms, a couple of pool tables and the best wings in town. My first introduction to the world of microbrews and my love affair with Sierra Nevada.

Now that I'm in Maine and a little older Portsmouth Brewery in Portsmouth NH. When ever the wife and I go south there is always a stop there if for nothing else but a growler of the IPA.

Next fall we all need to meet at the GABF in Denver and meet up here http://www.fallingrocktaphouse.com/ this place is awesome. Working for a major airline I have had the opportunity to drink a lot of beer all over the US and this place plus The Wynkoop in LODO have got to be my favorites.

They are a little brew pub that is also connected to Smuttynose Brewery ( I maybe wrong on that but their website is connected). High ceilings, lots of wood and good beer, the food's good also. Portsmouth it's self from what I seen, the downtown has a few little shop's of various venders. The evenings in the same area is a happening area with a good mix of the younger crowd and the mature folk. This part of Portsmouth I really like. The other side which I probably indentify more with is the blue collar (dock workers, ship builders and fishermen etc.....). It's clean, I really don't know about the crime rate. Overall it's a funky little city that I like.

I hope this helps

Found a great one in San Francisco a few weeks ago - Thirsty Bear. Great beers all around and GREAT food. They do Spanish tapas for the menu which was a really nice change from the normal pub fare. For those of you who aren't familiar, tapas is basically a menu of all appetizers. So, you and your friends get a bunch of them and sample all the tasty goods. It's a great idea for pub food!

Check it out if you're in town. South of Market near the Moscone Center. Cheers!

OMG!I just looked at their site and I don't know if I could make a decision on which beer to try first! What a selection!
This place is in my own back yard and I didn't even know it.
