In a town awash with local craft beer pride, the Thirsty Monk is an outlier, bucking local flavor in favor of obscure European and far-flung American ales. Bend an elbow at the downstairs bar, where you can choose from one of 16 drafts including Italy's Birrificio Italiano and Chicago's Off Color. A 100-plus bottle list offers even more options like Cascade Kriek from Portland, Oregon, and Omnipollo Mazarin from Sweden. Upstairs, find a second bar with 20 additional taps (no repeats!) and an equally impressive bottle selection. Keep climbing: You'll ultimately reach Top of the Monk, a rooftop cocktail bar serving classics like a Corpse Reviver #2 and The Zombie.
