It doesn’t get any grander than Dragonmead. The squat, unpretentious building by the side of a freeway service drive serves some of the best fermented beverages around, including some high-ABV pours, such as Belgian-style ales that can run to 10 percent ABV. There’s also a nitro tap that pours beers with a creamier consistency. A kind of coffeehouse atmosphere prevails in the main dining room, where there’s sometimes live entertainment, but there’s a bar to one side with televised sports for the guys who just need to watch the game. In short, there’s something for everybody.
