When what you drink is as important as what you eat, you’ll want to hit up these beer-centric spots.
Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood welcomed Mollusk brewpub this October; here, the crew that previously operated Gastropod and Epic Ales expands to bigger digs and serves up global shared plates for lunch and dinner alongside house beers that include botanical farmhouse ales, a pilsner, a schwarzbier and rotating IPAs.
The team behind Manhattan’s Mira Sushi & Izakaya hit down-town Brooklyn this October with Kimoto Rooftop Beer Garden, a 250-seat indoor-outdoor Asian beer garden serving Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and even Filipino beer alongside bites like an uni PB&J.
Biergarten on Lamar, which opened in November next to the Omni Dallas Hotel, serves up a modern take on the traditional German concept. Plates range from standard German fare like wursts to lesser-known dishes like rindergulasch (a variation of beef goulash). Choose from a dozen German beers on tap, as well as rotating locally brewed options.
Framingham, Massachusetts, brewery Jack’s Abby this fall debuted its Beer Hall & Kitchen, a 175-seat restaurant and bar with more than three dozen lagers (including hopped and barrel-aged varieties) on tap. Dishes from the wood-burning oven steal the menu spotlight, including pizzas, roasted chicken and wood-fired chicken wings.
