13. The Publick House

City: Brookline, Mass.

Just like Monk's in Philadelphia, this place is always packed, and for good reason reason. A challenger to the best of the Belgian bars, Publick House certainly has some range to their choices (like, St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition). The beer list is deep, with ample character, the food is a substantial offering on its own, and it's a place that's proud and unapologetic, something exemplified by their "I didn't really like that beer policy."
