District Brew Yards in West Town takes the pour-your-own-beer fad and transports it to a brewery taproom. It’s a collaboration between Burnt City Brewing, Around The Bend, and Bold Dog, and there are customer-operated taps for all three, along with a fourth section for rotating experimental beers. It has a food hall vibe with big wooden tables that are perfect for getting work done or playing a board game with friends, and the huge windows that open up onto Ashland keep it from feeling too industrial. There’s also a full-service BBQ kitchen, so there’s really no excuse to leave until they close.
