The Pub

What was once the Bellaire Hardware store has been lovingly transformed and expanded since 2004 into a vibrant and quirky space for community gathering, live music, libations, and sustenance. A magic you have to experience to truly understand.

Come for the Drinks, stay for the food.

Whatever you do, come with an empty belly.

We have 20 beers and ciders on tap all the time, many of which were brewed on the seven-barrel brewhouse in the basement beneath the Pub. Listen to some Ween on your way here, start with a cold pint and some fresh-made pretzels. Do yourself a favor and order and a White Pepper sandwich. There’s a reason it’s the most popular item on the menu.

Pub Beverage List

We’ve got beers, we’ve got ciders, and we’ve probably got some weird, experimental stuff you’ve been dreaming of.
