Back in the day, drinking beer involved frat houses, funnels and ping pong tables.
Not any more. Bitter Tasting Room is the beer-lover’s answer to a wine bar, from the same people who brought us Salt and the Irish Heather. The room is modern, the list of ales and lagers is as big as a phone book and if you ask nicely, the bartender will even whip you up a beer cocktail, which, for the record, does not involve dropping a shot of Jagermeister into your pint glass.
Take that, Alpha Beta Gamma Delta. —Kelsey Dundon
