The post-grad Fireball consumption zone that is Main Street also happens to be home to one of the best craft beer bars on the Westside. A solid restaurant in its own right (get the bison burger), Library Ale House has roughly 25 taps at any given time (that you can check daily on a live webcam) and hosts extremely popular tap takeover nights from the likes of Modern Times, Monkish, and other local breweries.
