The Best of the Chippewa Valley 2022

Best Bar for Drinkin'

Looking for the best place to get a drink with your pals this weekend?  According to Volume One readers, The Fire House (202 Gibson St., Eau Claire) reigns supreme for the eighth consecutive year; just wait until you see their tap beer selection – or their new mural! The Joynt (322 Water St., Eau Claire), a historical landmark with an old-school jukebox and the most inexpensive beers in the area, comes in second place. Heartbreakers Bar & Grill (1705 County Hwy. OO, Chippewa Falls) balances out our list. Cheers to good drinks and good company!  –Natalie Derks
