Despite the complex process involved in making it, beer is remarkably one of the world's oldest beverages and the catalyst behind mankind's first pastime: karaoke. Enjoy this timeless tipple and the good times it brings with today's Groupon for The Foundation Bar in Old Market. Choose one of the following options:
- For $6, you get $15 worth of pub fare and drinks.
- For $10, you get two beer-tasting flights (a $20 value). Each flight consists of four six-ounce samples from any of the brews on tap.
Eschewing fancy trappings for a simple, everybody's-welcome atmosphere, The Foundation's lurid neon lights, exposed brick, and oak-beamed ceiling are a means to an end—and that end is the bar's 25 beers on tap and 100+ bottled varieties. Say the word and The Foundation's bartenders will slice off a frothy cut of Fat Tire, Goose Island, Skinny Dip, or Boulevard Ale and magically capture its thundering majesty inside a pint glass ($4). Or venture further into the realm of crafts and imports with a bottle of Purple Haze, Saint Bridget's, or Summit Pale Ale. To offset the usual side effect of carbonated beverages––weightlessness––a hearty menu of classic pub grub will keep you tethered to earth. Pre-game for the Huskers with an avalanche of Foundation nachos ($7.95, or keep one hand open for celebrating touchdowns by munching on an Omaha Reuben ($7.59), served with a side of fresh-cut fries ($8.59 with fries). Gamblers who are short on cash after foolishly taking the long odds against the sun rising tomorrow can find solace in the Cheapskate (two sliders and fries, $3.99).
The Foundation's array of flat-screen TVs lets sports fans watch multiple college football games simultaneously without the hassle of mutating fly eyes, and a mezzanine of pool tables gives groups of friends a fun way to settle who's buying the next round. Live local music acts also make regular appearances to bask in applause and telepathic high fives.
- The Foundation has 25 beers on tap, most of which you won't find anywhere else. All of the owners/bartenders have been very knowledgeable and super friendly on my visits. – Brian, Google Maps
- Great vibe at this bar. Always seemed to have awesome music playing, which is a plus for me. 25 craft beers on tap is hard to beat too. – Brandon R., Yelp
