There's been so much advance buzz around Seventh Son Brewing's beers, we have to admit we were unexpectedly blown away by the actual brewery-slash-bar space-even before they started serving their own brews. The renovated commercial garage on Fourth Street in Italian Village can be rented out for special events when it's not open as a conventional bar. It's a stunning industrial-chic space with a massive poured-concrete bar, indoor and outdoor fireplaces and a wall of windows that makes it impossible to drive by and not want to drop in and join the fun.
