New England’s Tap House Grille
With more than 50 beers on tap through perfectly chilled lines, this Hooksett restaurant invites visitors to “dive deep into the cultural roots of craft-brewed beer.” Extra effort is put into the food too, including the 8-ounce char-grilled burgers. The B&B pictured here has bleu cheese, caramelized onions, thick-cut bacon and all the fixings. $10.50

Woodstock Inn Station & Brewery

The $24.95 cost includes a shirt and a spot on the wall of fame/shame.
