Considering all the epic fantasy I read, you'd think I'd get tavern, but noooo.

It's "brews its own beer"; no apostrophe in "its".

A microbrewery brews small batches of beer, but does not necessarily sell the beer for consumption on the premises. In fact, in some states in the US it is illegal to brew and sell for consumption at the same site.

it's funny how often over here in the Middle East (in Saudi Arabia of all places, where alcohol is strictly illegal) they misspell "salon" as "saloon." Every time I see a "hair saloon" or "turkey saloon" (Turkish barbers are reputed to be the best) I imagine some old gristled cowboy striding in and saying, "I'll have a whiskey and a perm!"

It's not a misspelling as such -- the word "saloon" is another British mangling of a foreign word that was applied to all sorts of large rooms, including the saloon on a boat. The more limited use to apply only to bars that cowboys frequented is, of course, an Americanism.

But that doesn't make your comment any less amusing. I'm picturing John Wayne.

I've come to realize this, as well. I think I asked some British friends about it. I assume the words saloon came from the French salon, which is just a room and could apply to all sorts of things, but for some reason in America it has come to be associated with one specific thing.

It's still a funny image, and I was also picturing John Wayne. With a Jheri curl.

It's Ratskeller: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratskeller - which probably explains why it's running at 3%!

"Keller" should be accepted for "Rathskeller." I lived in Germany for three years and only heard it referred to as the former.

What, no "ginmill". My father always said he was going to the ginmill when he meant the corner bar.
