3986 Adeline St.
This tiny Belgian-influenced tavern has got it going on: More than 100 artisan beers (something like 16 pages of choices from around the world), a small and interesting selection of savory dishes, coppery-backed benches and eclectic music (from Mano Negra to disco) playing. The café, crowded to the gills at 30 patrons, is doing its part to perk up the nabe with daily happy hour specials on beers on tap, occasional free beer tastings and beer and cheese pairings. The ambiance, beer on tap and the roasted beet salad deserved an A, but the fennel-beer-butter mussels and Kennebec potato fries were Bs at best. Still, this is a happening little joint with a charming vibe, and folks are responding in droves for its hard-to-find brews, from Trappist, Belgian and American brewers to Mexican, Canadian and Japanese makers. Welcome to E’ville, Café Bière. Dinner Tue.–Sat., brunch Sat.–Sun.
