Michael Roper’s legendary Andersonville bar has looked to Belgium for inspiration since 1992, and continues to find it with lambics, trappist ales and abbey-style ales. Nonstop crowds pack the claustrophobic front lounge, the soaring bi-level dining room and the adjoining exposed-brick-lined pub space. Many of the taps, no matter how obscure, are a reasonable $6, and the bar has no televisions, no games and no distractions to keep patrons from focusing on the beers (and the city’s best moules frites).
