Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
Downtown Orlando’s original craft beer (and wine, and whiskey) sports bar, Frank and Stein’s still sets itself apart from its “craft breau” counterparts with its plethora of sandwiches, soups and, of course, franks and bratwursts – not to mention 40 drafts, over a hundred canned and bottled beers, tons of seating for large parties and barflies alike, enough wide-screen TVs to satisfy your sportaholic friends and bar games to delight everyone else.
