Neighborhoods value their pubs as a place to socialize, just as they value the ends of their rainbows as a place to find extra parking-meter change. Enjoy camaraderie at close proximity with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a beer-and-appetizer package for two at The Bier Baron Tavern (a $41.90 total value). The beer and appetizer package includes the following:
- Two beer flights consisting of six 3-ounce draft beer pours per person (a $14.95 value each)
- One appetizer (up to $12 value)<p>
The Bier Baron Tavern has upstairs and downstairs bars with separate beer lists; Groupons may be redeemed at either bar but will only be valid for the beers served at that bar.
Having been listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being “the bar with the largest selection of commercially available beers”, Bier Baron (formerly Brickskeller) pours up to 50 draft beers and more than 500 bottled beers between two fully stocked bars. Amid a classic, European-tavern atmosphere often augmented by live music, Bier Baron staff serves flights composed from the 24–26 libations at each bar. The upstairs space yields 3-ounce versions of the Beer Advocate–approved Victory Golden Monkey and Allagash White, and the downstairs bar serves drinks by such brewers as Brooklyn Brewery, Lagunitas Brewing Company, and Bear Republic. While tasting the beer-soaked rainbow, sizable starters such as risotto balls or fried oysters cleanse the palate for another round of hearty cuisine. Bier Baron’s friendly atmosphere encourages patrons to chat with compadres or play a chummy game of Red Rover against its exposed-brick walls.
