Hellbender Tap Takeover

You know we love our local, small producers.  You can’t get much more local and small in the beer business than Hellbender!  We love their brews and always have at least one tap devoted to them!  So, starting Thursday, July 27, we will be offering 4 delicious beers from Hellbender in the Grotto bar and dining room.  A full glass is $6 {only $4 at Happy Hour} and a 5 oz taster is $3!  A flight of all four tasters is $10.

In addition, I am cooking up a special small bite to go with each brew.  And the cheese on two of the bites is from the P.A. Bowen Farmstead in Prince Georges County, MD.  This is a farm where the brewery sends its spent grain after brewing to be fed to the hogs and cows on the farm.  They use some of the milk to make incredible English style raw milk cheese which we are serving with the beer! The bites are $3 each or $9 for all 4.   {veggie options available for all bites}


Traditional German-style ale – light and crisp with a spicy finish from American-grown noble hops.
4.7% ABV, 25 IBU
Bite: steak & cloth bound cheddar cheese crostino


Malted oats and wheat make up the majority of the malt bill, creating a light-colored American pale ale with a biscuity malt flavor and clean, crisp finish. Massive late hop additions and dry hopping with Idaho 7, Ekuanot, Aurora, Centennial & Mosaic deliver intense tropical fruit and citrus flavors and aroma.
5.8% ABV.  This is their last seasonal release and is no longer available from the brewery!  They have held back a keg just for this event.
Bite:  Polenta squares w/stilton style Prince George’s Blue


Orange-hued IPA with strong, earthy resin and bright citrus notes from Nugget, Centennial, Citra and Equinox hops; finishes citrusy and dry.
6.5% ABV, 62 IBU
Bite: Spicy Ceviche


A collaboration with the historic St. Feuillien Brewery in Le Roeulx, Belgium, Days Gone By is a traditional Belgian tripel brewed with a distinctly American hopping. Bright golden in color with a light coriander spiciness, it finishes with bold citrus and tropical flavors and aroma from Citra, Amarillo, Idaho 7 & Azacca hops.
8.5% ABV, 42 IBU.  This is their current limited seasonal release.
Bite:  House sausage in spicy tomato sauce w/sharp provolone & calabrese hot pepper
