Bites 2012

The Springs' first brewery (est. 1991), JB's has always been a good happy-hour spot (4 to 7 daily), with $3 drinks and half-off apps, weekdays. From an updated menu featuring Kobe burgers, green chile and lobster bisque, the house-barbecue-sauced chicken quesadillas are popular.

InSider 2010

When Judge Baldwin's opened in 1991, it was the Springs' first microbrewery. Located inside the Antlers Hilton, it's now a low-key operation, churning out beers mainly for hotel and restaurant guests, says head brewer Mike Ford. He makes a few seasonal beers, including an Irish red for St. Patrick's Day and an Oktoberfest in the fall, but for the rest of the year he's content to brew old favorites like amber and pale ales.

InSider 2010

Judge Baldwin's menu has radically improved under two-time James Beard House invitee Ryan Blanchard. The outfit's beer isn't the best around, but it doesn't entirely disappoint at happy hours, which also offer absurd food specials. Get the ale and cheese soup, calamari or standout Maine lobster roll.
