Affectionately called “The Barrel” by many islanders, the Beer Barrel Saloon boasts a 123.7m (405 ft 10 in) long bar, 160 bar stools, 56 beer taps and a seating capacity of 1,200.
There are few bars that can rival the sheer size of this place.
With its pure Midwestern hospitality, you’ll immediately make friends with some of the few dozen islanders that permanently live here on South Bass Island, Ohio.
As you settle in for some serious island drinking, you’ll quickly find your niche in the zigzagging bar that winds its way through the building.
Interestingly, in winter the surrounding lake freezes over – so the only way in and out is via plane.
What to drink: 56 beers. One from each tap.
