Cheers to the Holidays – Who’s Open?

The presents are opened, the ham is eaten and your extended family has swaddled up and waddled home again – now it’s time to get back to normal. And for many of us, that means finding a beer at the local pub or brewery. Here are a few places we’ve heard will be open with kind bartenders ready to quench your thirst this holiday weekend. (Closed Christmas Day unless otherwise noted.)
