Ex Novo draws big crowds for its extensive beer selection and locally-sourced, yet somehow totally diverse menu (not often will you find phô, carnitas tacos, Cornish game hen, and shawarma all in the same kitchen)—even if it is a little ways off the beaten path. But what makes this family-friendly pub really special is the fact that it’s the world’s first nonprofit brewery. All of Ex Novo’s net profits go to organizations like Friends Of The Children and the International Justice Mission—all the more reason to enjoy this microbrewery’s tap list of signature brews made with European-imported hops, as well as specialty brews that change with the season.
