Ron's Corner Tavern
If there were a saloon at the border of the fourth dimension where every empty could disappeared to, it would probably look a lot like Ron's Corner Tavern. Behind the shotgun-style bar, cans of all stripes line the walls, hailing from Austria, England, Belgium, and the sprawling beer forests of Germany. The tavern keeps more than 30 craft brews on draught, such as Real Ale Devil's Backbone and Left Hand Milk Stout, and another 50+ in cans and bottles. Though Ron's styles itself as a craft-beer bar, their curated selection of more than 100 kinds of scotch, bourbon, and whiskey would impresses even the most grizzled prospector. Many of those oaken-hued ryes—along with a supporting cast of acai liquer and jalapeño tequila—make appearances in managing partner Mark Kelcher's original specialty cocktails, including the Texas daiquiri and the Blackberry mojito.
For a break in the bacchanalia, the tavern salutes the Lone Star State with a smattering of relaxed New American snacks and entrees. Appetizers, such as panko-breaded fried avocado slices preface entrees including the Texas burger—buried under a mountain of cheddar, bacon, and barbecue sauce.
