2018 Best Brewpub Worth a Road Trip

Hidden River Brewing Company

Even if this tiny brewery weren’t located in a possibly haunted 300-year-old site rumored to be a former Underground Railroad stop and, later, a gentleman’s club, and even if it didn’t have some of the best farm-to-table fare around, we’d still love it, because the hazy IPAs and sake-rested saisons are just that good.

2018 Best Brewpub

Yards Brewing Company

When Yards moved its flagship from Delaware Avenue to Spring Garden, we were all a little shook. We just didn’t know what to expect, and change is scary.

Crime & Punishment Brewing Co.

If you’re not being weird in the craft-beer world these days, you’re not doing enough. Crime & Punishment is doing plenty. The beer lineup in this Dostoyevsky-inspired spot is strange, but in a you’ll-never-be-bored kind of way. To wit: the Three-Body Problem kombu gose, a kettle-soured beer brewed with 20 pounds of dried kelp Read More »

Bar Hygge

Tom Baker of Earth Bread + Brewery is brewing here, turning out an ever-rotating selection of Belgian wits, milk stouts and saisons. And the kitchen isn't slacking off, either, with a concise but comprehensive menu offering everything from wagyu sirloin steak and scalloped potatoes to Berkshire pulled pork sandwiches with bacon Dijon and yucca fries, quinoa veggie sliders and fried chicken thighs.
