What was once an alleyway next to the Royal Cinema has been transformed into a beer-lover’s paradise. (The two brick walls are actually the walls of the neighboring buildings, which explains why the space is oh-so-very narrow.) Brothers Julian and Tomas Morana pull 26 beers—the taps are labeled A through Z—with a focus on North American craft. Selection is varied, from a vermouth-oak-aged saison from Portland to a double IPA from Vancouver to a dry-hopped apricot sour-brewed in Toronto—the board is ever-changing. The impressive bottle selection skews European. Wild yeast–fermented brews brought in from Italy and Belgium feature prominently. Excellent Italian bar snacks include the fried chicken platters from P.G Clucks next door.
