While this restaurant chain dots the American landscape coast to coast, mass consumerism hasn't dinged the Brea location's independent spirit. This is one of the better places for the craft-minded beer connoisseur to have a top-shelf drinking experience. Featuring 130 taps, a moderate wine selection and daily happy-hour specials (pints run from $3.50 to $4.25), there's a flavor here for every taste. Beers of note include the Blue Dog Sea Ale and selections from the Eel River Brewery in Humbolt County.
