Covenhoven is a beer bar. That’s all they have, but rest assured, they have a lot of it. They do a rotating selection of beers on draft, and there’s a giant fridge full of bottled beers. Pick something and grab a table in the plain little room. If you wind up here and you aren’t a beer nerd, however, you’ll be happy to know there’s a nice backyard.
