Go big or go home is the motto here. With an impressive lineup of lagers, ales, wheats and specialty beers on tap, this sports center also offers beer cocktails (Guinness Cream Soda or Beer’ita, anyone?) and beer blends (Snakebite – Stiegl and Strongbow). And if you`re lucky enough to score a VIP booth, your table is outfitted with its very own tap! The bonus here is the food is impressive and the TV screens bigger than you can imagine. Your beer week celebrations are set, thanks to Real Sports.
The sausages tend to get the attention here at WVRST, but it’s the beer that should get some of the glory. After all, this modern beer hall with the cool subway tile wall, prides itself on its carefully curated collection of craft beers and ciders. Selection comes way of over 600 bottled and canned beers and ciders with 24 rotating taps. WVRST also has a cellaring program , where many of the bottles won’t be opened for a decade or more.
It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside Bar Hop, a bevvy of beers await you. A staggering amount, many of which you’ve probably never heard of. And that’s a good thing. So go ahead and try something new. Choose Kasteel Donker or Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Weizen from the private orders and seasonal beers list, table bottles of Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca or Leelanau Whaleback White, or something from the gluten-free beers & ciders selection or draught beer currently on tap. Or stick with your tried-and-true ale. No judgment here. Just a raucous good time.
Feel like a stout or porter? Or maybe you’re in the mood for something Belgian. Morgans offers an extensive selection of local craft beers on tap, as well as a feature cask. They also have pairing suggestions for your meal, and A/C outlets at each booth, so you can power up while you wind down. Win-win.
