Can a dive boast one of the best beer selections in the city? If so, this is it. You’ll find the largest selection of sour beers in town, as well as a wide assortment from local breweries, most for around $5. It’s a loud, dark, no-bullshit spot: The walls are collaged in stickers, the bathroom is covered in graffiti and the music—usually metal or punk—is blasting overhead. The ambiance, or lack thereof, weeds out girlfriend catch-up dates. Toronado regulars are here to drink (and occasionally yell at each other across the bar). Grab a sausage from Rosamunde’s next door and pair it with a beer. Don’t piss off the bartenders—or the regulars—by veering off the menu.
