Drinks before Amis

Any recs for a great spot to meet up for good beer prior to dinner at Amis on 13th St. Love Tria but we go there a lot and are really looking for something new and different. Haven't new places been popping up along 13th? Thanks for any ideas!

  1. Not being a beer drinker, this may not be an answer that would help, but having eaten once at Amis, I was impressed by the large, attractive bar area there. Parking is tight; so you might love this choice for the pre-dinner beer meet. It's truly an attractive bar scene--fun.

    1. I don't know if the newer places on 13th are appropriate. "Bar" is a dive bar to get a PBR; Sampan has great cocktails but is not a beer bar, though it is nice.

      Time on Sansom just West of 13th has a good beer selection in the "whiskey bar" portion of the establishment (turn right when entering). Fergies Pub on Sansom East of 13th is also good for a beer, pub type atmosphere.

      You could also head to Good Dog on 15th St, its not too far, or Varga Bar at 10th & Spruce, a bit further. Both are beer bars with good selection; I like Varga's tap list better but you can't go wrong at either for a drink.
