Mascot Brewery

Mascot Brewery is the quintessential King Street patio, pouring up sours and giant mugs of pilsner. 

After losing out on their beloved rooftop space to the Robert De Niro-backed Nobu, the beer garden relocated by taking over the old digs of the subterraneous Mexican tequila bar El Caballito

The menu implores guests not to steal these copper mugs, which leads me to believe it's happened more than a handful of times.
