What does a city that prides itself on culture and knowledge need? Great beer and grub of course! And, no place offers that better than Ashley's Pub in Ann Arbor. Just south of Nickel's Arcade on State Street, Ashley's offers one of the best (and largest) selections of beer this side of paradise. Excuse the Fitzgerald reference, but hey, this is Ann Arbor we're talking about. With 65 beers on draught from around the world and even more in the bottle, this pub is more than a place for students to drown their exam woes or reminisce about trips across the pond. Ashley's also serves up a terrific menu ranging from burgers and pizza to steak and crab cakes. And since a pub just wouldn't be complete without a great Scotch or whiskey to round out the evening, Ashley's offers an extensive list of rarities, such as the 30-year-old bottle of Laphroaig Isle of Islay Scotch. If you are looking for a perfect pint of Guinness in a traditional pub setting, Ashley's is the place for you.
