That's weird. On their website they state: "[T]he Beer Barrel boasts a 405 foot, 10 inch long bar, 160 bar stools, 56 beer taps and a seating capacity of 1,200. On a busy night the bar employs over 20 bartenders and opens two extra bars in the back and side of the building."

So those are 56 fake taps???

Why the fake taps? I dunno! I was there about 7/8 years ago and too busy shooting the moon at everyone to notice good beer......I'm a reformed character now!

I think they had peanuts in those days too though.

I've been to Put-in-Bay several times. The town is primarily a college party town during the summer and I didn't really find any place that served a decent drink. The beer at the Put-in-Bay Brewery was horrible though the food was good. When I was there the Beer Barrel did at least serve Commodore Perry (IPA from Great Lakes Brewery) though the rest of the fare was BMC.

What we liked to do on the island was get bikes or a golf cart and go down to the winery on the island. The wine wasn't good but my wife likes it and its cheap. You can have a picnic outside on a table with a couple bottles of wine then wander around the island half lit on bikes or the cart. I guess we just like the environment much better than crowded bars.

You are exactly right. Hey, I will be going back there, there is a good atmosphere......But when I go back again I will have no illusions!

And yes the wine sucks as much as the beer! It all sucks!! Doesn't mean you can't have a good time! Just leave your opinions at the door. I know I will ............next time.

OhioBrit, I'm beginning to wonder if you need to be on some kind of medication. Your rants are always frothing, yet inconsequential. Like a rabid lapdog stuck in an overpriced SUV. Also like the lapdog, frigging goddamn hilarious. Don't ever change, or I will slap you in the face with a large trout.
