Milk & Hops focuses on beer and sandwiches featuring a selection of good cheeses. A BLT was served naked on a plate–just one pickle slice and one cornichon cut in half–but the bacon was very good and crisp. Ten beers are available on tap (you can get your growler filled here, too); the selection rotates so check the website for what’s on offer. Flights are available, with four 4 oz. servings for $10.
Although the design choices favor hard surfaces–everything is covered in marble and subway tiles–the sound level was a reasonable 71.6 decibels during our visit. No doubt the high ceiling helped, but we must note that the reading was taken on a not very busy Saturday afternoon. Given the design choices, it is likely the space will be noisy when crowded. Still, it’s worth poking your head in to check.
Milk & Hops also has a small market selling hipster staples (McClure pickles, Mast Brothers chocolate, etc.) and, of course, a really good selections of beers to go.
