The first U.S. microbrewery to put its beer into cans, and now the largest-producing brewpub in America, Oskar Blues has become Lyons' hot spot for beer as well as music and pub grub. Try Dale's Pale Ale—it's not as hoppy as most American ales—or any of the other robust beers brewed in small (20-barrel) batches. The burgers are consistently awesome, and come in interesting varieties, including two named in honor of music legends—B.B. King and Satchmo. Blues instruments
and covers of blues CDs decorate the restaurant. In the basement, a "juke joint" frequently hosts live music, and there's a bluegrass jam every Tuesday night. Free tours of the brewery are offered Monday through Thursday at 4 pm and Friday through Sunday hourly from 2 to 5 pm.
