WHAT WE'RE DRINKING

SAXENBURG ‘GUINEA FOWL’ CHENIN BLANC // With fresh and ripe notes of pear, citrus, honeysuckle, and stone fruit, this will quickly become your favorite ‘house’ white wine. 

SCHELL’S ‘DEER BRAND’ BEER // You know in the movies where the customer sits down at the bar and tells the bartender to give them a “beer”? Schell’s Deer Brand is that “beer”. It looks like beer. It smells like beer. It tastes like beer. It’s absolutely the definition of what “beer” is.

6 O’CLOCK GIN & TONIC CAN  // Getting bored of your G&T rotation?  Grab a can of the 6 O’Clock Gin & Tonic.  It’s a great introduction to this crisp and refreshing gin

CHEESE SHOP

THE PAIRING: OGLESHIELD + MARIPOSA + SMASHBURGERS // This is fun! We’re revisiting the Ogleshield and Mariposa pairing this week but we’re adding a new element: smashburgers! Sam is here to tell you why this is the only cheese you should ever put on your burger.

Join us on Saturday, July 16th for our next grilling pop-up! We’ll be slinging a selection of a la carte grilled deliciousness, plus some tasty libations, from 11am-3pm or until supplies run out.
