A round of beer can bring friends closer in a way that an oversize Acme magnet can only hope to. Experiment with the powers of amicable attraction with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a beer tasting of up to four 22 oz. drafts at C.J. O'Malley's in Pataskala (up to a $28 value).
C.J. O'Malley's tap pullers pour hoppy pints of domestic and imported brews amid a festive Irish decor. Finicky palates judge assorted pints of draft beers, based on flavor, hoppiness, and how it looks in an evening gown. Popular 22-ounce brews such as Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA ($7), Guinness ($6.25), and LandShark ($5) bolster a lineup of classic and craft brewery products.
C.J.'s bevy of indoor tables and spacious outdoor patio bathes quaffers in the glow of TVs or crisp night air as groups of friends debate where beer should be in the food pyramid. On Friday and Saturday nights, a live DJ sets the sonic stage for ale savoring.
