South Slope brewhounds can stock up on craft beers at this neighborhood specialty food store. Ten draft lines dispense beers like Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Ommegang Hennepin, and more than 30 suds are available by the bottle. Shoppers can also choose from artisanal products, including 75 cheeses (Jasper Hill Farm Weybridge, Cabot Clothbound Cheddar), Pain D'Avignon breads and 20 varieties of cured meats. The lunch special—inspired by the shop's namesake British pub meal, a ploughman's lunch—features a daily-changing selection of bread, cheese, charcuterie and pickles, along with a 16-ounce beer. On Saturdays from 4 to 7pm, boost your hops IQ with free tastings at the shop.
