This East Side taproom has a solid selection of local craft beer, plenty of bar seating, and a shady patio for you and your dog to sip a beer on and be admired by everyone walking by. It’s the kind of place meant for a long lunch or a late afternoon meet-up where everyone can show up wearing workout clothes or whatever they slept in last night. In addition to the homemade brew, Lazarus also serves tacos, and does a good job of it - they put a layer of cheese melted right onto the tortilla. If you’re in the mood for something else, they have also have coffee and a few solid sandwiches.
