We make our own beer here at The Public Option.  We try to keep 8 beers we've made on tap all the times, with 3 darker/maltier beers, 3 paler/hoppier beers, and a couple of experiments.  We charge $7 + tax for a pint or a flight (four 4 oz tasters) or $3.50 + tax for a half pint.


We've also got some domestic cans for $4 + tax, a small selection of wines, and basic spirits.  For more detail, check the "Menu" page.
