Beer tastes better when freshly brewed, just as cars perform better when their gasoline is freshly squeezed from a fossil. Tipple a tenderly crafted brew with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a two-person beer-tasting experience at Big Time Brewery (up to a $32 value). The tasting experience includes:

  • Two sets of five 4-ounce beer samples (a $12.50 value)
  • Two Big Time logo glasses (a $7 value)
  • One filled 22-ounce bottle of Big Time beer or an empty half-gallon growler (up to a $6 value)
  • One large order of pomme frites with dipping sauces or an order of basic nachos (up to a $6.50 value)

A pedigree of 21 medals from the Great American Beer Festival distinguishes Big Time Brewery—open since 1988—which crafts its own pantheon of sudsy brews in-house and serves them alongside traditional pub fare. The tasting experience begins with two flights of five 4-ounce samples of the house's microbrews, such as Prime Time pale ale, which has notes of delicate malt, and the Atlas amber ale, which leaves one with hints from three different hops and two recent New York Times crossword puzzles. Crispy pomme frites can accompany the taste parade draped in dipping sauces, while salsa adds zest to each rhythmic crunch of nachos. Meanwhile, a pair of Big Time–logo drinking glasses act as eternal reminders of this tasting gauntlet, and sippers can choose to tote home a 22-ounce bottle of a house brew or an empty half-gallon growler, which can be flushed with foamy goodness for $8.75 per fill.

The hardwood flooring and tables evoke the feel of a classic pub, along with the 12 taps that froth forth with house and specialty brews. Stare longingly into the reflection of the metallic brewing drums in the adjacent brewery, or step into the back room to wager your samples on board games and stein-juggling contests.
