Looking for a great place to have a drink and a bite to eat. Check out Obed & Isaacs in downtown Springfield. Our first micro-brewery is off to a fantastic start. They already have three of what will be seven home brews on tap and , wow, are they great. I particularly enjoyed the Long Nine IPA which is a dark beer with a robust flavor. Of course they also serve some domestics and have a full line of liquor and plenty of wine from which to choose. Order up some snacks or stick around for dinner. Whatever you decide, you won’t be disappointed. Court and Karen Conn, the proprietors, are no strangers to the restaurant business, and they’ve hit a home run with their latest gig. You can find them on Jackson Street between 6th and 7th. Tell them Phil sent you.
