Best Gastropubs in the U.S.
Owner Tom Nickel stocks the beers he wants to drink, from the everyday to the esoteric. The 28 taps highlight stellar craft brewers like Green Flash, Bear Republic and Russian River; recent favorites include Karl Strauss Peanut Butter Cup Porter and Belgian Coast IPA, a collaboration between Green Flash and St-Feuillien. The bottle list goes on for days. Reimagined pub fare includes the specialty tortas (Tom’s Torta boasts turkey, ham, Swiss, cheddar, avocado, bacon and spicy avocado dressing) and the brie and prosciutto burger with grilled onions and mixed greens. obrienspub.net
