Beer and meat. If your affection for these isn’t typically satisfied by burgers and pitchers of generic IPAs, The Cannibal has options to set you right. Along with some hard to find draught beers, they have over 300 bottled choices. The bar works well for a casual hang with a friend, and there are some good small plates like bone marrow with beef shank ragout. If you come with a group, sit at a picnic table in covered beer garden out back, and share a large format dish like the smoked ribs or the General Tso pig’s head.
The Cannibal is permanently closed.
