Donations in Lieu of Tips

We are all grateful for those of you who think filling your growlers deserves tips. While it is appreciated, it's unneccesary, so you may have noticed that in lieu of tips, we've suggested making a donation to benefit a local charity instead.

So far, your gifts have benefited the Hardwick Area Food Shelf immensely during a difficult time of year. Thank you for your generosity! 

We will continue to accept donations in lieu of tips, partnering with different local charities throughout the year. In this way, we can help raise awareness of the needs of our immediate community and foster the same abiding concern and regard that we have for the area with our many guests and friends.

If you wish to make a donation in lieu of tips, please use the new donation box prominently displayed on the right-hand counter, hand-crafted and generously donated by Darren Hill of Leaning Maples Woodcraft. The staff will gladly direct you to the right place. Thank you for your generosity!


Bottle Releases for the Week of Dec. 16!

Elaborative Three

Brewed March 2014 with our friend Brad Clark of Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery, we crafted this imperial stout with Rapadura, a traditional unrefined cane sugar, then aged it for 20 months in a variety of bourbon barrels. A carefully selected blend of barrels results in a unique, luxurious and complex beer, one that represents the deep, abiding friendship that guided its creation. Best served between 50 and 55 F.
