* ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' has a fair number of taverns. These run the gamut from the Blushing Mermaid, which is a dive avoided by all but the roughest members of the titular city's underworld, via the Red Sheaf, which is a respectable, modestly priced inn for the frugal merchant, to the Helm And Cloak, which is more like an upscale boarding house for adventurers with plenty of gold who want a nice, quiet place to relax between adventures, and which very adamantly does not serve beer because "We aren't running a tavern here, m'lord!".

* The Mended Drum in Literature/{{Discworld}} is a parodic exaggeration; it's been rebuilt several times, and the brawlers rehearse their moves to look the best for tourists. By ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', the bar brawls have become Ankh-Morpork's most popular organized sport.

* The Mended Drum in Literature/{{Discworld}} is a parodic exaggeration; it's been rebuilt several times, and is widely regarded as the best tavern of ill-repute in the world. The regulars are rough, in a rather specific way; someone coming in and calling himself "Urblad the Undefeatable" would soon have the entire bar proving him wrong with a wide variety of sharp and blunt instruments, but a ten-year-old popping in for a glass of lemonade would never get worse than a clip on the ear (and that more likely than not from ''his mother'', when she hears her child's expanded vocabulary). By ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', the brawlers rehearse their moves to look the best for tourists. By ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', tourists and the bar brawls have become Ankh-Morpork's most popular organized sport.

* ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'' lacks a tavern, but it's got a Sacred Beer Tree that serves a similar purpose. Iron Heade loves parties, and beer's a very essential part.

Eddie asks about flagons of mead, this being a vaguely fantasyesque setting and all, only to be informed that, no, beer is the drink of choice, and it comes by the keg.

* In the Thor comics this is done straight and played with. In the standard version of this trope, the unknown female Thor meets the Warriors Three in a tavern. There, they give her a series of quests to do before they will accept her as a rightful Thor (they also had her do a drinking contest as well to see if she could her liquor). In the 'played with' version, a little alien girl prays to Thor to save their harvest from a decades long drought. Thor does so and is about to leave when the grateful, impoverished aliens ask him to stay a while and they have a large stock of mead made from slugs to offer. Since 'mead' was involved of course Thor had to stay and in the course of the evening learns about the events of the Godbutcher. What makes this atypical was that there is no tavern, the aliens are too impoverished to have anything so fancy. It was just a somewhat solemn occasion held by a campfire.
