Growler hours are now dining room hours. Come on in, have a seat, have a beer, have a bite.From the TapsCharlie’s Work Bench - You get to work, and sometimes, slowly you figure things out. Call it a eureka moment. This is one of them. Charlie’s Work Bench is an IPA focusing on Eureka, and Azaaca hops offering notes of sticky pine resin and candied mango.IPA6.2% ABVPint - $632 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22Hop Stu – This is Bryan’s baby, a beer he’s been begging to brew since the day we met him. (Also the day he told us he’s dumped more beer than we’d ever make. Funny we kept him around and how much we love him….also explains why it took a bit to bring him in.) Anyway, after a year of 4am starts when he conveniently squirreled away some of his favorite hops it’s fermented to fruition. This IPA is brewed with a bunch of Amarillo, Citra, and Columbus for a super citrus punch. Bryan says he’d give it 6 caps on untapped. 6.6% ABVPint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24Days Were Golden – Oh, that extra hour. What will you do with it?

Scutters – Scutters is the nastiest part of the Propst property. Hard to get to, but worth it, so they say…. Scutters is also the inspiration for our first Black IPA.

As it always will be, whenever we go there.Black IPA6.7% ABVPint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24Blanket Warm - Brewed with a blend of European and American malts, hopped with Nugget and Cascade, and fermented on a classic English yeast strain, this transatlantic Brown Ale is relaxed and mellow, with a sweet malt nose balancing flavors of earth and spice.Brown Ale6.2% ABVPint - $632 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22 Mud Season - It’s early, but it’s here already.

He brought this recipe down from his garage to ours and now we’re firing it off from the taps.Biere de Garde with Grains of Paradise6.7% ABVPint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24
Suchness – Pretend you’re in Belgium, at a classic Saison brewery, surrounded by farmland and rolling hills with the moos of cows and baas of sheep echoing from the distance. You’re not in Belgium, however, you’re here, in Honesdale, where the same bucolic logic still applies. Suchness is brewed in the classic tradition. It uses a blend of light-colored European base malts and noble hops resulting in a classic, old-world saison that’s as golden as the sun and showcases a nose of flowers complementing flavors of plums, summer melon, and citrus.Saison6.6% ABVPint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24
Nevermore – A black, Biere de Garde that wasn’t aged in a cask in Amontillado, though it would have been nice. Dark, earthy, and mysterious. Uh-oh.

Slab Castle – We’ve heard about this place called Slab Castle. History tells us that it was an uptown attraction in Honesdale. It’s hard to find much more than that.

From the Kitchen
Leprechauns are supposed to give three wishes, right? Would you wish for corned beef three ways if given the chance? If so, consider it granted. (By the time the weekend’s over, there may be more than three ways to get corned beef. You never know.)
For starters we have corned beef potato skins. You can then move on to the Murphy Break, our Reuben pizza with caraway buttered crust, swiss cheese, kohlrabi, and Thousand Island dressing. If you’re feasting, we’ll have the quintessential corned beef dinner with boiled potatoes and braised cabbage. If you prefer uncorned beef, we have beef stew prepared with Suchness, potatoes, carrots, and celeriac. In the completely non-beef world, lamb curry is now adorning a pizza and served with kale and sour cream. And from the sea, we have scallop ceviche. Lastly we have a mushroom risotto with scallion and parmesan cheese.
If you’re thinking your luck’s run out by now, you’re wrong. Pete’s making cheesecake.
