Check out the Menu:
  1. Opening Pint & Toast with local Allentown, PA Brewery Hijinx. Toast with Kung Fu Gnome, a Belgian style Blonde Ale brewed with Jasmine flowers. This refreshing ale pours a hazy yellow and is topped with a creamy white head. The seductive aroma of Jasmine draws you in while the subtle refreshing flavors keep you drinking.
  2. Spicy Tuna Roll served with Sierra Nevada Otra Vez, a tangy twist on the nearly extinct gose style. It combines the zip of prickly pear cactus with a hint of grapefruit for a bright and refreshing finish.
  3. Whiskey Smoked Pork Belly over Cajun Dirty Rice served with Yuengling IPL, a brew bursting with complex hop notes like an IPA but with a well-balanced lager base that allows the Bravo, Belma, Cascage and Citra hops to truly shine.
  4. Jerk Chicken & Savory Waffle served with Samuel Adams Nitro Belgian White, a white capped and lively – the frothy white head of this distinctive nitro brew softly cascades into bright gold. The first sip reveals a smooth velvety taste with a light wheat character and hints of orange while an undercurrent of peppery spice adds a bright finish.
  5. Flour-less Chocolate Cake served with Beer Caramel and Yuengling Vanilla Ice Cream served with Weyerbacher Tiny, a Belgian-style imperial stout highlighting a malty, strong, roasted stout base with Belgian yeast that adds fruitiness and spices, resulting in a complex, tasty treat.
