A frosty cold Toohey's New at the Lambton Park Hotel.

[edit] This site is kind enough to list the five pubs within a five minute walk of my old house. Oddly, I never did visit the Marquis, even though it was only a few doors up from us.

TAVERNE DU PECHEUR
in Maxey-sur-Meuse, France

i grew up in this town and have tons of memories eating there and my first beer was had in this local tavern... they have draft beer, wine and bottled beer that is trucked in and the selection changes from shipment to shipment, thus you most likely will get a pint of something you have never had if you are adventurous and like trying new beers.
if you ever get up in the northeast corner of France make sure you check it out(bring your fly-rod! the nearby angling is exceptional)... the villages nearby have a few others but this is the best place in France.

also there is a cycling shop you would be amazed at... they can order bikes in but everything on the floor is old road relics, not for sale sadly. good repair man though!

since i am not old enough to drink stateside, i can't recommend anyplace here.

I should mention that Utah, oddly enough, has a couple of good breweries. Squatter's and Wasatch are two that I enjoy regularly during the summer months. They have some amusing names too: Wasatch Polygamy Porter - why just have one? :)
I like Uinta's. Especially their Crooked Line series. You tried them, Hack?

I remember the Polygamy Porter billboard causing quite a stir around the '02 Olympics.

Haven't tried them, but it's on our list of things to do. I'm not really a big drinker, but when I do have a beer, it better be good. Our local beers seem to fit that bill nicely.

Rola just bumped this because he saw where I took my wife for our anniversary lunch.

Had an IPA, some Butter Cream Ale, and even tried their Jalapeno Ale. Then a Blue Moon with dinner.

20 craft beers on tap, an awesome French dip, excellent local road riding & some of the best rocky singletrack and downhill trails in the Mid-Atlantic.

75 craft beers on tap, bike friendly city, and a stones throw from the front range.

A Dublin landmark. I've only drank Guinness here, but I'm pretty sure they have a few other beers on tap.

This place is amazing! It's tiny, but wonderful. The owner drives to Portland every week to bring back kegs of crazy good craft beer that they can't get delivered. Last time I was there they had Delirium Tremens and Arrogant Bastard on tap as well as Guinness and various English ales. It's a small English style pub attached to a bed & breakfast in Bethel, ME.

30 beers on tap and another 300+ in various containers of glass & aluminum. This place is in Northern VA and I hate driving in that part of the state, so I don't go there very often. Cool bathrooms.

My favorite is that one in Park City that Hack likes. They sell growlers you can carry into any of the other restaurants in Park City and enjoy with your meal. Part of the strange liquor laws out there. Is the beer they make 3.2%? I drank alot without getting too drunk. That's a plus. You want to stay hydrated, the elevation out there is high. The more 3.2 you drink tonight, the better you'll ski tomorrow.

On the home front, Franklin's in Hyattsville sells growlers, but they won't let you open one at your table, by the glass only. They make pretty good beer. Oddly, I've never been to any of the DC places Rola mentioned.

They had a double bock that was 10%. My wife likes the 5 ounce samplers for $2.25, since she can try several, not spend a lot, and still be able to walk. I suspect we'll be up that way a bit more often. It's nice to get away. And yes, elevation is 10,000 feet, which is high even when coming from 6k.
