Best Beer Selection - 2009
Petrol Station Coffeehouse
Don't let the name fool you: The Petrol Station serves much more than just coffee. And although you can get a fine cuppa here, the beer selection is what makes the Petrol Station special. You won't find Bud Light, but you will find a limited yet remarkable selection of cask ales and locally brewed beers. And they know their stuff, too: On a recent visit, the knowledgeable bartender responded to a request for a "fiercely hoppy beer" with a freshly drawn pint of fragrant and snappy Avery cask-conditioned India Pale Ale. Despite the presence of far too many little ones underfoot at times (after all, this is a neighborhood watering hole), the Petrol Station is a hidden gem of a place where you can relax, grab a bite to eat and be dazzled by a new beer each time you go.
