2014 Winner: The Publick House

A bar for beer geeks who blanch at the term “beer geeks.” Its got one of the best beer lists around, with everything from locally brewed upstarts to intriguing Belgian drafts (the specialty of the “Monk’s Cell,” an abbey-evoking bar-within-a-bar). Pub food such as BBQ-spiced pork belly soars to heavenly heights, even as the pretense-free Publick House remains totally down to earth.
