While this isn’t explicitly beer news, it’s definitely worth posting.

Chef Todd Sweet and Sous Chef Jon Hebert have created a new menu of Weekly Specials.  These new dishes incorporate elements of Korean, British and New Orleans cuisines just to name a few.  “Our goal with this menu,” said Chef Sweet, “was to serve dishes that are grounded in something familiar but also offer something unique.  We like the idea of dining by appointment, so what you’re seeing here is our best attempt at giving you seven delicious reasons to visit the Brewery.”

The new specials menu also offers a significant increase in vegetarian options from its predecessor.  Take a look:

Stout Shepherd’s Pie- Lamb and local carrots simmered with herbs in our Stout and baked with “neaps and tatties”  $15.95
