Putting the B Back in BYOB: Four Beers for a Night Out to Eat
Cooking a meal around your beer is always fun but if you have a night out on the town in mind, here is a short list of great restaurants with generous BYOB policies.

NJoy Thai: Offering comfort food, Thai style, this tiny Montrose spot also has no corkage fee for customers bringing in their own bottles. The inspiration for this article, Avery Salvation, works well with a wide variety of the menu.
Lucio's: Recently called a hidden gem, Lucio's classic menu calls for the classic, all-around beer. Racer 5 will pair well with most of Lucio's fall menu, such as the tuna tartare or vegetable terrine.
Himalaya: This Pakistani favorite offers bold spicy plates that clamor for a good beer to cool the palate. Ommegang would be my choice here. As an alternative, try a boozy barleywine style to cut through the spice, but remember to share with the rest of the table, as these beers pack a high ABV wallop.
Lola: Big, bold sandwiches like The Day After Thanksgiving will stand up to any beer on this list, but the golden sweet Ska Blonde would be my choice, or try an Imperial Pilsner for a clean, light pairing. Lola also won't charge a corking fee for bringing in your beer.
