America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 4 of 17

The Bulldog, New Orleans

To help customers keep track of the 50 beers on tap at this Garden District tavern, bartenders provide frequent drinkers with punch cards. Those who try all 50 (over the course of multiple visits) get their name on the bar’s “plaque of adventurers.” Louisiana draughts are well-represented on the list, with offerings like Tin Roof’s citrusy Perfect Tin and NOLA Brewing’s Hopitoulas, a West Coast—style IPA. The outdoor patio features a beer tap water fountain made out of taps collected from breweries across the country.
