Every bar just south of this place, on Forest Park's frat-glutted Madison Street, fills up quick. This place doesn't. It's built into an old house. It's full of regulars from the neighborhood. One of the bartenders is a published author. (Find out which one!) This is a Have-Your-Beer-and-Talk place.

On that beer note, there's a lot of beers to find here, though you probably won't know it until you've squinted at the taps and fridge long enough or asked a bartender. This is a you-should-know-what-you-want-already kind of place.

The owners just added pub trivia the 2nd Wednesday of every month, hosted by the Forest Park Library. Yep: this is a drink-with-librarians kind of place.

My review for the Beacon will be in the form of two haikus. Enjoy.

Cheap tequila shots
but jukebox stole my quarters.
Bartender was rad.

Hoegaarden on tap
but I was dumb and drank crap.
Yay popcorn machine!
