Judging from the taps behind the bar, it’s clear that Footprint used to be a growler store. Now, these taps are all full of wine, and it’s the perfect lowkey weeknight place to hang out if you’re genuinely interested in viticulture (we’re not just saying that because they have a trivia game about grapes). Needless to say, this is not the place to tell the bartender that you usually drink Franzia blush and are wondering if the pink wine from Provence is similar.
