Growler hours are now dining room hours. Come on in, have a seat, have a beer, have a bite.
Our offerings and hours for the weekend:
From the taps: Please know, not all of these will be on whenever you come in. We run 8 taps for beer currently. Four rotate. Expect to find an assortment of the following.
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. What we did find, though, was inspiration for a rich, luxurious stout with dark chocolate and coffee notes that finishes with flavors of cherries and stone fruit.6.4%Pint – $632 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24
Bad Stoner Jokes - Crazy what ends up in beer names and descriptions these days. Bad Stoner Jokes is a wet hopped brown ale brewed with dank, sticky, heady homegrown nuggets. (It's a type of hop, relax, and pass to the left.) Herbal, floral, and resinous. 6.1%Pint - $632 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22
Can You Taste the Spelt? - Spelt's all the rage these days. It's an earthy, ancient wheat with a nice minerality. Can you taste it, though? You tell us. This dry saison is brewed with loads of spelt, and singularly hopped with Sterling (including some we grew ourselves, picked and immediately put in the boil). Fresh and grassy, with notes of citrus, spice, and hay. 5.7%Pint - $632 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22
Trade Marks - Hard working, honest folks built this building. Everywhere we looked, we found their signatures. This hardworking, honest cream ale was brewed in their honor. 5.7% Pint - $532 oz. - $1064 oz. - $20
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.6.6%Pint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24
After the Dawn – This beer is like most days, it starts off a little cloudy and a little bitter, but then it clears up once that bright orange thing in the sky starts shining. Hopped and dry hopped with Summit and Citra.6.6%Pint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24Trials and Jubilations – We learned a lot from our first 7BBL batch. All 21 hours of it. We applied our lessons learned to craft a new saison with a soft mouth-feel that complements flavors of lively florals and ripe plums atop subtle, earthy lemon. 7% Pint - $632 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22
Le Dale - A refreshing, farmhouse-style ale brewed as a celebration of our surroundings. Notes of grass, forests, fields, streams, sunshine, breezes, gusts, and interesting cloud formations.6.1%Pint - $332 oz. - $1164 oz. - $22
Secret Epicenter – An incredible, wonderful pale ale brewed for this incredible, wonderful place we call home. Clean with bright notes of citrus and dark stone fruit.5.3%Pint - $532 oz. - $1264 oz. - $24
&Wisdom – You live and you learn. Every day brings new lessons. Take the knowledge from today and apply it to tomorrow. &Wisdom is a bright orange, Belgian-style witbier with a melange of vanilla, citrus, and pepper flavors. Take from it what you will and enjoy today. The struggles are the solutions. 5.5%Pint - $632 oz. - $1064 oz. - $20
Where’s Bryan? #7 – One day on his way into work, Karl stopped to pick some wet, fresh Chinook hops. Then he stopped again to borrow some other hops from a friend. He boiled things for a while, adding some Azaaca and Citra along with all the Chinook to create a pale ale with breezy notes of mangos, papayas, and exotic citrus. There’s really not much of a story to this one, or is there? Nope.5.7%$7No growler fills
Animated Talking –This dry and hoppy saison is a brewed with local honey and hops that impart flavors of lush lemon atop bright blueberry. It’s been known to bring about excitable hand gestures, body language, and colorful words. Have fun. 7%Pint - $732 oz. - $1264 oz. $24
From the Kitchen
From the KitchenThe fields and trees are really starting to come to fruition. You’ll see it on the plates and bowls coming out of the kitchen. For starters we have spent grain tortilla chips served with house-made salsa. We also have tomato soup served with cheesy bread. If you want to keep the tomato/pepper chain rolling, you can roll right into our newest pizza: Pepperpalooza featuring fresh, locally grown roasted red peppers along with bell peppers, ricotta, and pickled jalapenos.
We’ve also got one of those good news/bad news situations; you’ve eaten your way through the Fox Hill Farm beef. So, no cow. Instead Chef Cooper and his crew have whipped up lamb ragout, which is plated atop house-made fettuccine and dressed with roasted jalapenos and snow peas. We’re also introducing smoked bluefish mac and cheese and drunken littleneck clams steamed in Le Dale with garlic tomato broth. To top it all off, we have apple and pear tart and cookie dough ice cream. Also, we’ll try to keep you updated on comings and goings from the menu.
