When it comes to beer, there's two kinds of folks: people who drink beer and beer drinkers.
The difference? People who simply drink beer are perfectly satisfied with a copious supply of X light domestic and run away in terror if their glass is filled with anything other than a light golden color.
Beer drinkers, on the other hand, like it all — dark, light, ales, lagers, drafts, hefeweizens, etc., and can probably talk your ear off about it and will after a few pints of the latest microbrew delicacy.
So for true beer drinkers, not just any bar will do; they need one with a wide selection. Luckily, the metro area has some choice spots for the beer faithful.
