Deck Season has Ended

Well, it’s been a great summer on the deck. But all good things must come to an end! The deck is now closed for the season. For those who need a bit more out-door time, we’ll leave the chairs out for a while — so you can feel free to take your drink out there!

Thanks for all your support over the summer. Join us soon in the dining room, and we’ll keep you posted on the return of the Sunday Bistro menu.

Drinks always available on Weds, Thurs, and Sunday — just see us inside to order and we’ll bring them out to you.

Hermit Thrush Brewery Dinner

We’ve loved getting to know the guys from Hermit Thrush, and have been featuring one of their beers on tap for the last few months. We’ve finally paired up to do a full-on dinner featuring some of the brews (now available in cans!) and hope you’ll be able to join us.

a limited release saison-style ‘small beer’ (2.9%) highlighting hops all grown less than 20 miles away from the brewery 

Then move inside for the main menu:
Poutine with Wild Mushroom Beer Gravy
paired with Brooks Brown
a malty, yet light session ale
