This venerable bar hit the big two-zero in 2012. It’s got a little Ponce de Leon thing going on: the place has remained lovably straightforward and quintessentially blue collar while the world outside keeps on spinning. As the longest tenured of its regular clientele can attest, the craft-beer program — intact longer than most beer bars have been in existence — has eluded the time warp, advancing with trends and remaining a local standout.
