Stumblingpiper’s Top 50 Places to Drink Beer

Ok, these are in the order I can remember them.  The key for this list is: 1) I can remember where the place was and can get back there, 2) it’s a place that you can get to to drink beer, 3) it will be a place that, no matter if you’ve been once or dozens of times, you will want to go back when the opportunity presents itself.  I will adjust this list as I remember places …

    • Yep … Phantom Canyon is good … but it’s so close to either Jack Quinn’s (for atmosphere) or Il Vicino (where you can get Wet Mountain IPA on tap) … I have a hard time staying there. LOL!
