Draft Beer in Charlotte

Anyone have any suggestions for a great selection of draft beer in Charlotte?
I can only think of 4 places.
The Fox and Hound
Hickory and Fox and Hound have a wide selection, but it's mainly domestic or common imported beers. Revolution Pizza is pretty good. I have not tried the Flying Saucer yet because it's a tad far from me.
Can anyone help me find some really unique beers on draft in a non-smoky bar type environment? I'd love to find some frou-frou place that serves beer in glasses proper to the type of beer.

You can certainly do better than Hickory Tavern and Fox & Hound. Pizza Peel is a good suggestion, especially since Tim Schaffer came on. The original beer bar here is Hotel Charlotte, although they're known more for their bottles than drafts. Don't underestimate Brixx, they get some great beers in. I seem to remember the Wolfman in Myers Parks having one or two uncommon in Charlotte (Jever for example.) Common House has Chimay and Stone IPA. Hawthornes Pizza sometimes has some good ones on special. Duckworth's has a surprisingly good list. Upstairs from Duckworths is Tavern on Park which has a few good taps although I don't think they have the proper glassware. I could go on but some of the places I'm thinking of don't maintain their lines as well as I like.
If you are ever in the mood for a good selection of imported draft beer I'd suggest Six Pence Restaurant (located in Fort Mill, SC - Baxter Village) just outside of Charlotte, NC.
I'll add that, while Common Market doesn't have a wide selection on tap (they have a great bottled selection), they always keep 2-3 interesting beers on tap that won't find other places. This is the one in Plaza-Midwood, not the one in SouthEnd.
Sir Edmond Halley's has a solid selection.
Hef's doesn't have a wide selection, but I've seen some interesting beers there.
