Find a variety of beers at these local bars
St. Patrick’s Day is synonymous with bar visitation for many college students, and those with a taste for beer have several options in the Wright State area.
Many bars near Wright State are constantly importing new and old beers both on tap and draft, giving customers a wide variety of options to wet their whistles. Here are three:
The Pub is an English themed restaurant located at The Greene with an extensive menu and bar. Most waiters and waitresses are equipped with a kilt, giving the atmosphere a foreign vibe.
Staff trainer Erica Hill said that one of their newest options was cask ale, which is a rare, unfiltered and unpasteurized form of beer.
“It’s a really unique delivery system,” Hill said. “It’s not one of tops you just open and the beer comes out. You have to really crank it out because it’s all self-contained; there’s no carbon dioxide running through lines to pull it up.”
Hill said that cask ale would be difficult to find elsewhere.
“There’s not many places you can go in the area that carry cask ale,” Hill said.
Kings Table on Grange Hall Road offers a wide variety of beers and specials for customers to choose from. The drive is approximately four minutes from Wright State, according to Google Maps. General Manager Kat Ravkin said that when it came to the choices available at Kings, to each their own.
“Beer Flights,” are available at Kings Table, which consist of four 4 oz. samples of any of the 40 taps available for $6.
“It’s a fun thing to do because you can try all sorts of things without breaking your wallet,” Ravkin said.
Tanks Bar & Grill
Tanks Bar & Grill is located near downtown Dayton on Wayne Avenue. Among the imported beers available, the most recent is Innis & Gunn, imported from Scotland.
“These are very good, high end and very tasty,” Manager Sandy Cox said.
Conway’s Irish Ale (imported from Cleveland, OH), and Guinness pitchers will cost $9.75, which is an unbeatable price according to Cox.
“It’s a 64 oz. pitcher. You can’t get it anywhere in town for $9.75,” Cox said.
For those planning on visiting Tanks on St. Patrick’s Day, Cox advised timeliness to avoid long lines.
“We’ll be busy, so come early,” Cox said.
