We hear all the time about the dangers of being addicted to our phones, social media and screens in general. Know what’s a great cure for that? Beer halls! Seriously, there are not many things left in the modern world that encourage striking up conversation with a complete stranger like communal tables and good beer. The Northern Brewer crew has been known to haunt Surly’s bright and shiny beer hall, but we’re also partial to the cozy vibe and amazing wursts at New Bohemia, as well as Summit Brewing’s fun-filled, inviting space. This slideshow from USA Today offers a glimpse of beer halls from around the country. Got a local favorite that didn’t make the list? Give them a shout out here!
