PINTS & UNION PORTFOLIO: A new food menu is here, and Founders Harvest Ale just around the corner.


A brief Pints&union update seems appropriate.

The new set menu is pictured above; it shouldn’t be changing much in the short term, if at all. I don’t have the text for inclusion here, but you should be able to view it.

Rumored weekend food specials include Guinness Beef Stew, Bangers and Mash, and Fish and Chips. One of them might have run today, as I was elsewhere. 

Obviously the kitchen is where Joe wants it to be. Staff also has been beefed up, and there’ll be longer weekend hours in the future, though not just yet.

Finally, the next beer on the “serendipity” tap is very seasonal in nature. It’s a “harvest ale,” with explanation to follow. As soon as the Sierra Nevada Narwhal depletes (as it may have tonight), then Harvest Ale will begin pouring.

HARVEST ALE … wet-hopped ale
ABV: 7.6%
IBUs: 70

Each fall, our brewhouse looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of our favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, we then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
