TWO URBAN LICKS

This Atlanta hot spot pioneered draft wines, and it's still leading the way. The 40-plus list leans hard on California, but don't overlook the inky Rhône red.

IRVING ST. KITCHEN

Order a rib-sticker from the southern-inflected menu—fries with ham-hock gravy to start—and wash it down with one of the 11 Oregon and Washington vintages on tap.

FATHER'S OFFICE

Beer might seem the ideal match for this venue's renowned burgers, but the powerful 2006 Zinfandel from Klinker Brick—one of eight draft wines, all from small California producers—begs to differ.

TERROIR TRIBECA

At this offshoot of an East Village wine bar known for its esoteric offerings, a brisk Finger Lakes Riesling streams from a tap next to a Brooklyn Pennant Ale '55.
