Best Brewpub

The Great Lakes Brewing Company

Even if you resist drinking Great Lakes' award-winning beer, you can still get a taste of the brews' distinctive flavor. The bratwurst is soaked in perennial favorite Dortmunder Gold; the tangy salad dressing takes its flavor from the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter. The porter pops up later in the scrumptious chocolate chunk ice cream. It's hard enough to do food with excellence, even without adding the beer factor. Not only does Great Lakes manage to succeed at both, the brewpub integrates them in a stylish -- and delicious -- way.
