  • Reynolds & Reynolds

    Reynolds & Reynolds bills itself as a tap room. This conjures images of dark, wooden interiors, underground rathskellers, and male-dominated spaces of old. The reality of this woman-run Woodstock establishment is quite the opposite. Large windows bring in a generous amount of light, and clean lines delineate an open eating plan that fosters conversation. The light menu keeps the focus on beer, with brews constantly rotating through R&R's 10 taps.
