Stout is a useful bar to keep in your Capitol Hill rotation. It’s never too busy to find a table big enough for your group, and it works for a birthday cocktail pregame, a midday beer-and-sports meetup, or your salvation when it’s late-night and you need something to soak up the last three hours of drinking. During the summer, they open up the giant windows, and it makes for excellent day drinking after a frisbee session at Cal Anderson Park. Get the Capitol Hill Mule and the salami flatbread.
