Staff pick: Great Divide Tapping Party at Local Bar

From the August 2, 2012 edition

Local Bar not only has one of the best beer selections in the Short North, but it’s also one of the district’s most fun hangouts. Things will be even more fun this Thursday — it also happens to be National IPA Day — when Local Bar brings in six beers from Great Divide Brewing Co. Opened in 1994, Great Divide has established itself as a consistent producer of quality and inventive brews, and the six available at Local Bar (Hoss Rye Lager, Hades Belgian Ale, Titan IPA, Rumble IPA, Yeti Imperial Stout and the Espresso Oak-Aged Yeti) are all excellent.

Once you’ve tried a few, the retro decor, video games and crab races — that’s right, crab races! — at Local Bar will prove to be even more amusing.
