Hardwood columns descend from a vaulted ceiling at Pete’s Tavern, where a menu of pub grub sates sports fans gathered beneath lambent panoplies of wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. Twelve beers, including drafts from Lagunitas Brewing Company and Redhook, gush from taps at Pete’s horseshoe-shaped full-service bar, which also irrigates arid cheering sections with signature cocktails and robust reds and whites from local wineries. Overhanging pennants celebrate the nation’s best teams and complement walls covered with photographs of legendary athletes and endangered mascots. These photographs gaze down on plates laden with house-smoked barbecue brisket sliders and eight grass-fed half-pound burgers.
