This Cali-focused beer mecca strikes an ideal middle ground between a sports bar and a cocktail lounge: design savvy, but not pretentious; popular, but low pressure. (Bonus: You won’t be shelling out for $12 drinks.) You’ll find 31 California beers on tap, ranging from ciders and IPAs to stouts and hard-to-find sour ales. The long wraparound bar on the main floor is well-situated for casual mingling, while the booths upstairs are open seating.
