Oak and Embers Tavern may be better known for its BBQ, but the local restaurant chain has always carried one of the largest bourbon lists around.

Now the original spot in Chesterland has been named one of the best 100 bourbon bars in the country, as selected by the good people over at the Bourbon Review.

For this year's list, judges were looking not only for a long whiskey menu, but also for restaurants that offered creative bourbon cocktails and food items that incorporated the spirit well. They also judged places on how knowledgeable the staff was and also private barrel offerings. When all was said and done, only two Ohio places made the cut, including the Century Bar in Dayton.

Oak and Embers was started five years ago by Marc and Gretchen Garofoli, and has since opened a spot in Hudson, with plans to open at Pinecrest soon.
