The Hay Merchant is arguably the most serious domestic craft beer bar in the country. With cooking that goes well beyond the expected bar food or salty, beer-themed fare, this a worthwhile visit even if you don’t like suds. The fun and well-executed menu includes a half pig head; the nationally lauded Cease & Desist burger; and sweet-and-spicy pig eats. The industrial setting, occupying half of the building shared by Underbelly, is interesting and inviting.
