Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This unassuming galvanized tin shack on the side of the road houses a not-so-secret gem: Ernie's Tin Bar, a teeny tiny watering hole with a surprisingly good beer selection (think Drake's Nitro Stout and North Coast Puck Saison) for very reasonable prices. Grab a stool next to a grizzled local or a looky-loo tourist (the Tin Bar draws many) and peruse the chalkboard menu of just under 20 selections. While enjoying your brew, eavesdrop on the bartenders for a peek into what the locals are up to, and take in the scenery: glowing neon beer signs, many mounted deer heads and relics of a bygone era, including peeling paper calendars and a telephone with a cord that could stretch clear across the bar. After a weekend of fancy schmancy wine tasting, this might be just the tipple you need, but take note: The bathrooms are outhouses and there are no cell phones allowed, no exceptions.
