I will have to check out Siciliano. I have lived here since '92 and and am STILL finding things that I have missed. I am typically out at Founders and Hopcat, and sometimes Sazerac to see what they have up on their draft board.

Founders is listed in the top 5 brewerys in the US by Paste magazine.
Go there.

Founders also has a great "feel". The employees seem to enjoy their jobs.

Founder's is definitely the place to go for beer on tap. They do sell beer to go for better prices than the stores. International beverage on the east side has a decent selection but the prices are a bit steep. World Market, it's on 28th street, has a small but respectable selection available in singles to six packs. Their singles prices are usually very very cheap. It's often cheaper to buy six singles of the same beer than a six pack. I know they have some beers from Bell's, Founder's, New Holland, Short's and maybe Arcadia.

I agree with most of what's been posted before. Only exception is that I don't care for Schmoz (or however you spell that nonsense). But I'd like to give an extra shout-out to Brewery Vivant. If you haven't been there yet, make it a priority. They are a place to watch, in my opinion - both for their food and their beer.

International Beverages is also a great store. I'd say on par with Siciliano's for beer, and a lot closer to the city. Only thing is they don't have homebrew supplies....

Graydon's Crossing is a great place to get a pint and some hearty food. They don't have as many drafts as Hopcat, but they aren't far off, and they have a more relaxed, british vibe. They open a cask-conditioned ale every Thursday, and have Hopslam on draft at all times. Very good place.

I don't recommend the BOB. Haven't ever been impressed by it.
