Alex says

Go down the steps to enter Mekelburg's, and at first you'll only see a gourmet grocery store - initially the meat and cheese counter, then rows of shelves carrying artisanal foods. Until you venture further in, there are no clues that hiding behind the aisles is a craft beer bar with a heated back patio. The taps pour an ever-changing range of well-chosen, often unusual, craft beers. The atmosphere is laid back. Bar food is available (small plates, sandwiches, cheese and meat plates). The disabled benefit from a wheelchair lift at the entrance. There is a modern day speakeasy feel generated by the hidden nature of the bar. Very worthy. (11/2015)
