What it is: The Dram Shop is a 37-tap bar that en­cour­ages growler fills. Own­ers Sarah and Zach Mil­lar have cre­ated a hub that cel­e­brates all that beer has to of­fer. Right down­town in a bustling district of homes and busi­nesses, The Dram Shop en­cour­ages not only ex­per­i­men­ta­tion but also ca­ma­raderie among pa­trons. Friends and strangers alike can gather at the long bar or at am­ple ta­bles to com­pare notes on what’s in the glass or sim­ply talk about the hap­pen­ings in town.

Why it’s great: Even the low­est of the dive bars in this town have at least one craft beer on tap, but you’re go­ing to find the macro stuff dom­i­nates both in se­lec­tion and by cus­tomer choice. In this well-lit, spa­cious, yet still in­ti­mate bar, you can drink a mul­ti­tude of beers from the lo­cal, state, and re­gional lev­els in proper glass­ware, filled by knowl­edge­able and friendly staff. And when you find one that you like, just get a growler to go. —John Holl
