We like the low-key approach to quality beer drinking. The relaxed vibe makes Anvil a great spot to trade stories with friends without worrying about an overzealous DJ. Unpretentious barkeeps deliver a wide range of drafts, and it’s easy to go from stopping by for one drink to wondering where the last three hours just went. Be sure to bring change for the meter, because a parking fine would totally ruin your buzz. Or, if you feel compelled to bike, the bar has bike racks. Happy hour runs 4-8 pm Monday-Friday, with $1 off drinks and half-price appetizers. Perhaps more important, you can get $2 Texas drafts on Wednesday night.
