How about a thread where we put together a list of some of the best pubs in the states. I'll start.

Toronado - San Francisco, CA - I would guess that this is the best beer bar in the country. It has a ton of diversity, a nice Belgian focus, and access to really rare beers. Not much ambiance, and no food. Come for the beer! :)

My first vote goes to The Ginger Man in Houston, Texas. They claim to have the most beer on tap in H-town. Good import and domestic variety, cool atmosphere in the Rice Village.

My second vote goes to Hogs N Heifers in NYC. Well, because of the babes that cuss at ya and dance on the bar!

Cheers!

My favorites would be:

For selection and ’beer knowledge’: The Map Room in Chicago (http://www.maproom.com/). I go there as often as I can. No food, but a fantastic beer selection. They even host a ‘beer school’.

Real Pubs: Quigley’s Irish Pub in Naperville, Illinois, a Chicago suburb (http://quigleyspub.tripod.com/). A pretty close recreation of a real Irish pub right here in the States. The owners dismantled much of a pub in Ireland that was destined for the wrecking ball and moved it here. They have good food, a decent selection of beers, live music most nights and a real mix, from college kids to seniors.

Brewpub: Great Dane Brewing in Madison, Wisconsin (http://www.greatdanepub.com/). I go once a year to a model train show and always stop in here and take home at least three growlers! This place is hard to beat. And this is coming from a guy who can zip over to Goose Island in Chicago (http://www.gooseisland.com/) anytime he wants!

Are you sure it's not Hogs-n-Honeys? There is a bar in Gatlinberg TN that has the babes dance on the bar and cuss at you. They also make you get on your knees to give you a dance for a shot! Ahhhh!

Just an awesome place. Great beer and a cool room above the restaurant that is called the tap room. 20 different kinds of tap brews and great atmosphere. When I was stationed there it was a regular hangout. I've yet to find anything remotely close to that place here in Virginia.

Yep, It's Hogs-N-Heifer's in NYC. It's in the meat packing district (lower east side maybe?). Only been once, and was tore up! It's the one they made Coyote Ugly after. Inside doesnt look anything like the movie. Real small, old biker bar, bras towering from above the bar :p
A for sure place to stop and have a beer when in NYC, at least once!

long and short, i needed to split their beer list amongst several different posts.

They have all of these beers in their coolers and their waiters know their beers. With lots of cool old signs on the walls, how is this NOT the best beer bar in the country?!

Agreed, the Brickskeller is the BEST beer bar in America. They sealed of two rooms and refrigerated them to hold their beers. When you sit down you are given a small book listing their beers. They have over 1500 different beers in stock. I have only had the pleasure to go there only one time. (When I was in town for a belgian beer festival in 2001). If I am ever in DC again I will make a return trip.



PS> If anyone cares, they have a pretty good food menu as well.

I generally try to make my way there once a month or so. I am fairly familiar with the place. You are right, food is pretty good. But, you go there for the beer.

It always irks me when I am there and someone orders a Miller Light. It does happen, you will see it.

The best part is that many of the beers that come in various size bottles they will carry. Example: Ommegangs usually come in both 750ml and 12oz and they have both sizes.

Their waitstaff is generally pretty knowledgeable and serves beers in the proper glassware (most of the time) and if you get yourself a nice bottle conditioned beer they will pour it the proper way for you.

The outside is very unassuming, you would walk by and never realize it was there, but the inside is pretty neat. Downstairs is usually 100degrees, so if you are ever there, I suggest sitting upstairs.

You are right. When I was there there was a group that all ordered bud, bud light and such. I wanted to scream at them. To me, that is like going to Outback steakhouse and ordering a Big Mac.

If anyone is ever in Albany NY, the Albany Pump Station has the best craft beers around, They don't even sell commercial beer. Also the MaltRiver Brewing Co in Latham is pretty good too.

Nice to see someone likes their Ommegang. They just had a Belgium beer festival at the brewery. I missed it but some friend went and gave it a big thumbs up.

Of course. OF the three major regional stlyes of beer (English, German, Belgian) there are very few American beers that can replicate good Belgian Ales. Ommegang does a very fine job, and sometimes will outdo those Lowlanders.

That joint in DC sounds sweet, but I think that the "BEST beer bar" would have to be based on certain factors. Of course selection is nice if you're going to travel down the exotic list, but the place also needs atmosphere, comfort, darts or pool (if you play), etc. Selection is important, but it isn't everything. That said, I need to schedule a road trip to DC to check the joint out. :cool:

Brew Bars
Ram - Schaumburg, IL
Goose Island - Chicago, IL
The Assembly - Hoffman Estates, IL

The Assembly is now one of my favorites. They have fantastic food and really really good beer.

Real Bars
Red Star - Glenview, IL
The Lumpy Pickle - Joliet, IL
The Curragh - Schaumburg, IL
The Stadium - Rolling Meadows, IL

The Curragh is one of those truly authentic "everything from Ireland" bars. Meaning that the food is terrible, but the ambience is almost stiffling.

I'm into dive bars really. I like an empty, dirty bar over a chic club. Red Star is the only treny bar on my list because they have some 200+ beers on tap. Their beer menu is at least double the size of their food menu. Apart from the 200 on draught, they have hundreds in the bottle.

The Lumpy Pickle is just a local dive that I hung out at when I lived in Joliet. They had hundreds of bottled beers and one of those "100 beer" clubs where you'd get your pic on the wall for drinking 100 different types. Most tasted like hell.

Now, The Stadium is a great place. They have the 100 beer club, but best of all they have Monster Mugs of beer. These are 36 ounce mugs of beer that cost $3.25 for a domestic. They also have dozens of micro-brews on tap and good, cheap food. The downside is that it's Lung Cancer-riffic inside. Everyone's smoking and there's no ventillation. It's greasy and dirty and dark. Sometimes they have Karaoke, sometimes they have wrestling on the TV's. They have NTN and a couple of big screens.

Fun times, fun bars.

Hundreds of beers in bottles and last time I was there over 125 taps!

And the wings rock to boot!

The place has a great atmosphere. No darts or pool, but then again you go there for the beer.

The Yard House is a chain of restaurants, mostly in Southern California that have at least 130 different beers on tap. The original in Long Beach has a selection of 250! It's a full restaurant, not a pub, but as far as selection you can't beat it.

Two of my favs:
Boston Beer Works http://www.beerworks.net/html/locations_fenway.html- Its next to Fenway Park which is spectacular by itself, but they also brew I think over 25 different varities of beer at a time with many seasonal offerings as well. I was there 2 weeks ago and their Pumpkinhead Ale is one of my alltime fall favorites.

BAR http://www.niteimage.com/clubs/BAR/- New Haven CT. This place is broken up into several rooms, and has some great brickoven pizza. The downside is that one of the rooms towards the back is also a nightclub, and I despise the club scene. They offer 4 beers brewed in the establishment, which isn't many, but the stout is out of this world good (Its called Damn Good Stout). In fact the only reason I put this place on the list is because when I lived in New Haven I spent every thursday night there because they offered dollar pints until 11:30 PM and I couldn't get enough of their Damn Good Stout.

SuperBrew--I read about Beer Works' peanut butter porter. Did they have it when you visited? Dying to try this potential masterpiece.

Its wierd that you mention that but when I was up there 2 weeks ago in my head I was kicking around an idea to make a peanut butter brew, but no they didn't have any then. If they did I would have been all over it, all I had then was pumkinhead ale and victory red ale. I'm actually supposed to be up that way in another few weeks and I will definately be on the lookout for that peanut butter porter and I will let you know how it is.

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! :D

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.
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.
