Concierge.com's insider take:
Birch & Barley offers one of the best-curated collections of artisanal beers in the States: 50 beers on tap, 500 in bottles, and 5 in casks. Oh, and there's great food, too. The dishes pair perfectly with the many brews; standouts include ahi poke tartare, the hearty brat burger, and bread pudding with a bacon caramel sauce. Four-ounce pours encourage a spirit of exploration, as do the servers, a merry band of bearded or bespectacled beer lovers led by Greg Engert, named a Food & Wine Sommelier of the Year in 2010. If you can't score a table, join the masses quaffing upstairs at ChurchKey, where you can steel your stomachs for a night of boozing with brew-friendly snacks like shrimp corn dogs and cheddar poutine.—Colleen Clark
