Always crowded with beer nerds and the people who love them, “The Original” Small Bar (a few other locations have come and gone) is both an anti–sports bar and a neighborhood pub. Established in 2002 as one of the city’s first champions of craft beer, it has a mess of taps that rotate on the regular.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Whatever’s on special. There’s always something new to try, so go for dealer’s choice.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: It really is small, and patrons tend to hunker down. So if you’re not keen on waiting, try, try again.
