There are three reasons to go to Butcher and The Boar: meat, beer, and whiskey. This Downtown spot has an outdoor beer garden that’s open year-round and is the perfect place to stop by after work for their daily happy hour of a beer, brat, and shot for $12. If you head inside for dinner, order a few of the large plates to share, like the charcuterie board and the sausage sampler, before going for a steak, the smoked beef long rib, or the seared duck breast. Afterward, choose a whiskey from their huge list and think back fondly on all you’ve accomplished - aka eaten.
