Best Beer Selection

When they need to douse their thirsts, Volume One readers know where to go: For the sixth consecutive year, poll voters say The Fire House (202 Gibson St., Eau Claire) has the Best Beer Selection in the Valley. Beer connoisseurs of all tastes can find something to enjoy from among the 38 rotating craft brews on tap. From pilsners to porters to lagers to stouts, The Fire House has you covered. Second place goes to The Growler Guys (2832 London Road, Eau Claire), which has an astonishing 48 taps that visitors can imbibe by the flight, pint, or take-home growler-ful. And there’s always something new and creative to sample at The Brewing Projekt (1807 N. Oxford Ave., Eau Claire), where the tasty brews are served up in the beautiful, spacious new taproom. – Tom Giffey
