Boscos Squared

Boscos Squared was brewing small-batch craft beer long before it was cool in Memphis. (The company opened Tennessee's first brewpub.) The beers are paired with meals by expert staff, and Boscos even uses its own brews in the signature wood-fired pizza crust. Microbrew enthusiasts will like the nutty Midtown Brown, the hoppy Bombay IPA and seasonal varieties. See More

The Brewer's Art

Located in a Victorian townhouse in the heart of Baltimore's entertainment district, The Brewer's Art succeeds equally as an elegant fine dining restaurant and as a funky mecca for beer enthusiasts. The hearty bistro fare is a good fit for this brewpub's own Belgian-inspired beers, from the Abbey-style dubbel, aptly named Resurrection, to the dark Proletary ale. See More

Bull & Bush Brewery
12/20

Since the early 1970s, Denver's Bull & Bush Brewery has been the local pub house for musicians, college students, homesick Brits and craft beer lovers. The tap roster of tasty British-style ales, IPAs and seasonal sours can't be beat, and the dart boards and outdoor patio invite lingering. Fish 'n' chips is the thematically correct meal, although the burgers, prime rib and Mexican dishes also hit the spot. See More
