The Duck Island Alehouse, over in Green Lake, features a great selection of beers in a comfortable environment. They have a pretty limited food menu (mostly just snacks), but if you have a hefty appetite you can order from Beth's next door and bring it in. The crowd here is friendly and easygoing, the bartenders are knowledgeable, and there's always something good playing on the jukebox - what more could you want?
Fiddler's is a great little pub with a nice neighborhood vibe. Featuring a small but well-honed selection of beers on tap, as well as a food menu that is refreshingly lacking in fried fare, Fiddler's is a popular spot that fills up quickly. They are dog friendly, so feel free to bring your pooch and grab a table in the outdoor seating that's available during the summer. Be forewarned though - by their own admission, the kitchen is small and food orders can take a while, so make sure you're not in a big hurry to get somewhere else before you stop by.
