The Black Sheep Lodge is the ideal neighborhood beer garden to hang out with old friends or meet new ones. Located away from the usual SoCo crowd, the outdoor patio is always crowded with a rowdier crew of patrons looking to fill their bellies. The interior is ceiling-to-floor burnished wood, just like you hoped it would be; seating is available at long oak tables and benches, encouraging you to get to know your neighbors. This is pub food at its finest, so go nuts on the thick burgers, fish and chips, or the rich and meaty chili. Wash it all down with one of their 20 beers on tap or try one of their surprisingly great frozen margaritas.
Every day features a different all-day drink special, including $3 Monday Local Pints, $1 Wednesday White Trash Cans (Lone Star, PBR and Schlitz) and $2 off Friday Pitchers.
Weekly food specials are posted on their website and always worth checking out.
