A dark neighborhood bar that may need more seating but wow what a list of bottled beers. Its a book of over 800 different kinds. Tap list is good.

Dark bar atmosphere. Friendly owners. Willing to talk beer. Bottle list, while impressive, has mostly stuff you can find anywhere. Tap list decent but heavy towards Lakefront, which Iím not a fan of. Prices are average. Good place to stop for out-of-towners.

This place has been here for 30 years, and has had a good beer selection for just as long according to the current owner. Taped to one of the beer coolers are old photos from the early 80ís, of bar patrons drinking unusual import beers for the time. Inside the bar is dark and carpeted, an old sailor propped up at the end of the bar to freak out first time visitors (like myself). Lots of interesting old breweriana and sports memorabilia, including a bottle from defunct local brewery Old Port Brewing, and a bottle of Westvleteren 12. The place shows itís age, but is well-worn and loved. A classic old school beer bar feel, similar to Toronado but cleaner. They stock close to 500 beers here, and the selection rivals bars in Milwaukee. The owner and his son tend the bar, and are more than willing to chat beer for as long as you want. The beer list is alphabetical, and pages long. The front page lists new arrivals, which they also update on their facebook page. Among them were Jolly Pumpkin, Nebraska Brewing, Chouffe, and more. We chatted with the owner the whole time we were there, and he mentioned some upcoming tap takeovers and possibly hosting a firkin tapping sometime in the near future. If youíre anywhere nearby, Sir James Pub is certainly worth a detour...

Thought it was a "pretend" English Pub, but turns out to be much better. Atmosphere is dark, like many Wisc neighborhood taverns. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. Incredible list of beers, mostly by the bottle. Great place to go for a beer tasting with friends. You can put together some great combinations from their list. And they have some really ahrd to find stuff.
