A rec room for hipsters, this white-walled brewery-bar reverberates with chatter in the early evening when tech workers disgorge from nearby offices. By 8pm, it's usually more mellow. Aim for a glass of lightly hoppy Ocean pale ale, served in a mason jar. The food menu has been pumped up to include breakfast and pizzas, and weekend-only brunches are popular.
If you're a true beer buff, check out its 33 Brewing Experiment bar next door, where up to 20 taps of test and small-batch brews jostle for attention. Four-glass tasting flights cost around $10 and you can expect some truly unusual tipples (anyone for sea salt IPA?).
