In a town lauded for its craft beers, the contest for "Best Local Beer" is a tough one. But Willoughby Brewing Co., which has been slinging its Peanut Butter Cup Porter for years now, is no slouch. The eastside staple consistently ranks high on lists of our favorite breweries in town and the most underrated gems around here. You'll always feel welcome when you slip into a booth at Willoughby, and you'll feel even more at home once you order the Peanut Butter Cup Porter. It's everything you want in a dark beer — and everything the competition wants to be.
