It's tough to do both beer and food well... these are a few of our picks for fun beer places that nail them both.
The Beer Bistro
1061 W. Madison St.
Chicago, IL 60607
"This place is our go-to spot to grab a beer in the area. They have a great selection of beer and friendly staff. The kicker for me is that they have bacon as one of the sides you can order. Yeah you read that right. Just straight up bacon, no frills no fluff." James K, Des Plaines, IL
The Ritual Kitchen and Beer Garden
4095 30th St
(between Lincoln Ave & Polk Ave)
San Diego, CA 92104
"I love the beer, food and the ambiance here. 'twas a little pricey, which is expected of a place which sources locally harvested food. One star off because it took a while for the food to come. If you're in good company the time shouldn't matter. Just don't go expecting a meal right away." Laurent B, Naples FL
Southern Sun Pub and Brewery 627 S Broadway St
