Interesting, guess I will have to give NXNW another try. When I went I was not at all impressed with the Hefe. Tried a few 512 beers, a few Real Ale beers, and they were similarly poor. Maybe I have just had bad luck and need to give them all another try.
The Draught House makes some good house beers. Note that their selection fully rotates. That is, there are no house beers that are always available. Good for variety over the year, bad if they don't brew your favorite house beer often.
I also like Lovejoy's. Well, I enjoy their beer... the place could stand to be a little nicer. If you can get past the punk-dive aesthetic, there is good beer to be had inside.
