We dropped in on a Sunday (around 12:30pm) and it was busy. We snagged a table inside but most were outside on the patio. Service is friendly and sweet but the waitresses didn’t seem to be knowledgeable on the beers.
They have a very limited food menu (roughly half a dozen items).
Our favourite of the bunch was the barley wine; you really get the wine flavour without the barley funk.
The kolsch was unmemorable.
The kveik ISA was a light hazy but with very subtle fruit notes.
Dunkelweizen (dark German wheat beer) and the oatmeal stout were both decent.
Muffalata ($8.52 for for half order)
Focaccia loaf sandwich with salami, smoked ham, provolone, olive tapenade and peperoncini peppers. Half order was a good portion. We don’t order many Italian subs so this hit the spot for us. The peperoncini pepper was sweet with a mild kick to it. Would get this again.
Chorizo bits were tasty and the soup was a perfect companion on a cold, wet rainy day. Portion size is a touch on the small side.
CB’s beers were what we expected but the food was a pleasant surprise.
