99 Bottles is what happens when someone who loves great beer lets his imagination run wild. A beer bar where “what if we put this on draft?” becomes “why didn’t we think of that sooner?”

The place where world-class pilsners share a tap list with Rosé All Day and hazy IPAs. A world where kombucha has a tap and so does prosecco – whatever your taste, this is where you find your new favorite. Like Willy Wonka’s factory meets an art gallery for beer lovers – and every exhibit is meant to be tasted!

Web:  HotDogsWithStyle.com

Offering premium hotdogs with gourmet toppings that create legendary flavor!  Serving burgers, fries and custom shakes.

America’s love for hotdogs is universal. The only disagreement is how to top them. Each state or region of the Country has gravitated toward their preference or “style” for toppings, hence the idea for “Doggystyle” was born.  We have brought together some of our favorites for you to try from around the Country.
