Metropolitan is a big warehouse-like brewery taproom in Avondale focusing on German-style lagers. The taproom has huge windows and a patio overlooking the river, and it’s a great summertime spot for a big group. This place doesn’t serve food, but it’s BYOF, and they occasionally have restaurant pop-ups.
