The buzz surrounding this downtown "gastropub" shouldn't give the Spotted Pig too much pause: With dozens of hard-to-find artisanal brews on draft, nobody's really coming here for the food. Communal-style seating further underscores the beer garden vibe. However, the interior is more Boulder than old-school Bavaria: Think salvaged wood paneling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and tables made of reclaimed Douglas fir. Descriptive tasting notes come in handy for the more obscure imports, which range from citrusy German Pilsners to chocolate stouts that are meals in themselves. And savory bar snacks like the pork belly sandwich—essentially a BLT with intensely flavored slabs of bacon—pair well with most of these libations. Spitzer's is at its best on weeknights, when a mix of beer geeks, art types, and post-work professionals chill with a pint or two. On the weekends, it's best to make this your first stop and escape before the rowdy masses descend.

Open Mondays and Tuesdays noon to 3 am, Wednesdays through Fridays noon to 4 am, Saturdays 11 am to 4 am, and Sundays 11 am to 3 am.
