This time last year, Duane Sorenson's SE Division landmark the Woodsman Tavern was basking in the glow of its place amongst GQ's 10 Best New American Restaurants, and this month the mag is back for another round. 

In a new roundup of the country's Top 10 Whiskey Bars, Woodsman barman Evan Zimmerman gets high marks for his "Portlandified take on the Manhattan—it has Lapsang tea—and the Omaha Sour, which will make you wonder if there's something you're missing in Nebraska."

Check out the full list of America's top brown-booze destinations on the GQ website, where the Woodsman shares list space with NYC's Ward III, Chicago's Longman & Eagle, and Charleston's FIG.
