The Hours: Happy Hour is offered 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

The Interior: If you ask downtowners, you'll know Angels Trumpet got off to a bit of a bumpy start. However, the beer-focused bar quickly became a favorite spot to hang out and grab a craft pint, with the inside dining area, bar, and outside patio quickly filling up on weekend nights. You'll have a much easier time finding a place to sit during happy hour, luckily. If you choose to sit on the patio, you can even bring your pooch or play a game of cornhole while enjoying happy hour specials.

The Food: You have your choice of either a 10-inch sausage and onion or margherita flatbread for $7 during happy hour. At the server's recommendation, we went with the sausage and onion. Though the crust tasted floury and was chewier than we'd like, tthe spiced sausage and red onions made a nice flavor combo. The flatbread was generously topped with cheese and sausage and lightly topped with onions. The whole thing was filling and definitely worth the $7 price tag.

The Drink: With an ever-changing, impressive list of beer (and even wine on tap) there's always something new to try at Angels Trumpet. The $3 drafts during happy hour are a steal for the quality you get. You can pick from whichever beers are listed on tap numbers 3, 4, and 5 during happy hour, which included an imperial porter, a pale ale, and an IPA on our visit. While this might not be the best selection for the hop-averse, the taps likely won't be the same even a couple days from now. The Ironwood imperial porter, with its intense, dark flavor and smooth drinkability, won us over this visit.

The Conclusion: You really can't beat $3 drafts of craft beer. That's about as cheap as it gets anywhere, with most places only offering $4 happy hour pints. Pair that with a $7 flatbread that's satisfying enough and you have $10 pretty well-spent dollars. The only issue we really had with this happy hour is a lack of options, with only three very hoppy beers being available, and two flatbreads offered.
