A quick note
about craft beer bars, because we're getting tired of some folks touting how many beers/casks they have on tap. A bar that has 56 microbrews on tap is NOT better than a bar that has 16 on tap. A bar (like ours) that has 16 microbrews/1-2 firkins on tap is not better than a bar that has 4 microbrews on tap. Craft beer is not about how many beers you have available, but about how well they're chosen, and how well they're taken care of. Once the number of beers on tap gets over a certain silly point, you actually should distrust the quality of the bar and the beer, because each keg/cask is getting less care. Are we cool on this?
