    • Featured Beer: $6 20 Ounce Batch 19.  The recipe for Batch 19 dates back to the days before the prohibition of alcohol in 1919.  It was lost, tucked away in a brewer’s logbook, but rediscovered while the brewery cleaned up after a flood in its library.  They loved the recipe so much that they decided to brew it and celebrate the great taste and style of beer before Prohibition.**

    • Paired Food Item: Pulled Pork Minis with Sweet and Sour Slaw.**  There herbal flavors from the unique hops are a fantastic partner to slow smoked pork while the subtle malt flavors pair well with molasses undercurrent of bbq sauce.
