About: An Old First Ward institution that has transitioned into something of a destination for beer enthusiasts. Under new ownership and management (since 2012), McCarthy's has expanded its menu to offer more sandwiches and beer-friendly brats and the like, while also breaking ground on an in-house brewery. Seating is either at the bar or at long tables. Atmosphere is classic rust belt tavern: lots of signs, lots of history, old wood, and a very long bar.
