Against the Grain, a spin-off from local favorite Grape and Grain, is an upscale beer bar as opposed to wine. The pint-size pub gets crowded on weekends, but the microbrews are worth it. The food isn't your usual pub fare, with items on the menu like Oysters, Beet Salad, and Beer-Steamed Prawns. Wash it down with one of their popular suds, such as a Rochefort 8 or Old Engine Oil, to keep your motor running. This is a cash-only bar, so leave the plastic at home.
