This Northeast beer and sausage shack is all about a bargain on Tuesdays. Slide in from 5-5:30 p.m. and grab Goose Island taps for only 10 cents. It’s no wonder this dime of a deal only lasts 30 minutes, as it might be the cheapest drink in town.

In honor of Lyle’s 50th anniversary of barhood, the windowless hooch haven is offering 50-cent beers for 50 days. Now until Sept. 30, Miller Lite and High Life taps are a half-buck between 8 and 9 p.m. For those stuck on Lyle’s two-for-ones, bust out a Sacagawea coin for the same effect.
