The Publican has 22 taps, which primarily feature American craft microbrews. They also have a large selection of cans, rather than bottles, as the can revolution seems to be taking hold in the craft beer industry (Personally, I prefer bottles to cans, but that's another discussion). They also feature an impressive selection of liquor, including several bourbons, Scotches and over 35 different tequilas, for patrons who might be missing Bandolero, the establishment that preceded The Publican at the same location.
The View From My Barstool At The Publican
While there, I ran into Matt Bonney of Brouwer's Cafe, who has been working hard to get The Publican ready to open. He was talking to the patrons, making sure everything was feeling right and tasting good since, of course, this was their opening day. We chatted for a few minutes, and I congratulated him on the opening, which seemed to be getting off to a great start.
