The People’s Pint is as good at smoking meats in-house as they are at brewing top-notch beer.

What a peculiar little spot. Formerly The Yellow Sofa and before that, who can remember? The Foundry is run by Sally and Sonny, 2 lovely people who as far as I can tell never take a day off. They have a short draft list, but it’s always a damn well-curated one, and Sally knows every last beer they serve inside and out. They have regular tap takeovers and cask nights and all sorts of events in between. They have an interesting food menu that, to be honest, we have yet to try. In addition to drafts they also pull a pretty good shot of espresso here. They may be overshadowed at times by bars close by boasting 40+ taps, but this is a cozy little spot worth investigating.
High Horse’s ‘Beyond The Pale’ British-style ale is extraordinary, but the rest of their line up is also quite good. The bar food is tasty, but a little pricey for what you get.
