Best Beer and Food Joint East of I-75: The Stein & Vine

Best Beer and Food Joint East of I-75

When you first take a seat at The Stein & Vine — which uses just three letters, “PUB,” to identify its purpose inside an inconspicuous strip-mall building — you notice it’s a neighborhood haunt with a friendly atmosphere and a stellar craft beer (and wine) list. Once you get a taste of the spread that’s whipped up inside the small kitchen, however, you’re blown away. The chef-inspired eats are as great as the pints — so great that Coppertail Brewing Co. teamed up with owners Ty and Lacey Mathis on its own on-site kitchen. —Chris Fasick
