Cool bar in downtown mobile. Seems small once you walk in, but there’s a large back room, a large outdoor area with a stage, and an upstairs area; wouldn’t had know about these if someone hadn’t shown me around. Only issue is ordering one of the beers on tap is only at the small bar up front which can easily get crowded. The staff itself was awesome and great. Great selection of beers with a nice selection of local brews and a complementay set of good beers from elsewhere in the country; including a solid lineup of Stone seasonals the day I was in. Overall a cool place to grab a beer while downtown.

Last stop of the night. This is a fun little town to bar hop in and while this bar was pretty quiet (though it was pretty late) they have a great tap selection and the server was very friendly. They’ve got several dozen taps and some good stuff to pick from. They had several Westbrook taps so I had a glass of their Berliner. Outside on the sidewalk was a sandwich board advertising that they had just tapped Hopslam. Beyond that they had some Yellowhammer, Straight to Ale, Sweetwater, and Pensacola Bay stuff in addition to Stone and Avery.
The building itself is an old brick building with (at least according to the facebook page) an interesting history. If this is accurate it’s pretty neat:
Located directly across from the historic Saenger Theatre. Our Tavern was originally built in 1853. This was the house of Nicola Marschall (1829 – 1917), a German-American artist who supported the Confederate cause during the American Civil War. He designed the original Confederate flag, the Stars and Bars, as well as the official grey uniform of the Confederate army.
