Best Beer Selection in a Bar (2014)

The Bulldog Uptown

There are two types of beer drinkers: those who care most about the destination (i.e. getting totally hell-hammered), and those who appreciate a good journey. Here's how good the journey is when you stop in at the Uptown location of the Bulldog: We're talking more than two dozen tap beers, including rotating selections from locals like Surly and Fulton, favorites from American craft brewers like Bell's and Lagunitas, and some of the finest ales that Belgium has to offer — from the delectable 17th-century recipe Tripel Karmeliet to the award-winning (and hard-kicking 9 percent ABV) Delirium Tremens. When a bar's tap selection beats most others' bottles, that's recommendation enough — but if you don't mind bottled or canned, their selection more than doubles, with esoteric microbrews, international delicacies, and good old American tallboys all there for the sipping. If you've ever wanted to make that leap from casual drinker to out-and-out beer connoisseur, the Bulldog is the place to start.
