Best Beer Selection

Got a five-alarm thirst but not sure how to quench it? The Fire House can meet the needs of any beer aficionado. With 38 rotating taps offering immense variety — from IPAs to lagers to fruit beers — the Fire House wins this category for the ninth consecutive year. But the competition in this category is stiffer than an imperial stout: The Growler Guys has nearly 60 beverages on tap, including craft beers from coast to coast that you can enjoy at the bar or take home in a 64-ounce growler. Rounding out the list is The Brewing Projekt, a taproom that offers something imaginative and tasty each time you walk in. —Tom Giffey
