The wide-ranging beer menu (more than a hundred choices) will satisfy the pickiest craft-brew expert, while the descriptions are clear enough that even a noob will have an easy time finding an enjoyable quaff. Comfy tables on an airy patio, a nice variety of sports on the flatscreens, a perfect noise level (i.e., there's music but you can still have a conversation) and an affordable menu of pub grub make Brass Tap an ideal casual hangout.
