Manhattans & Cocktails

The inspiration behind the recipe:

General Manager Josh French is the creative mind behind the cocktails, ManhattansManhattan and barrel aging process. Josh also collaborates with other small businesses in the area, Exit 6 Microbrewery and VB’s Chocolate Bar, to bring new flavor profiles to our aged cocktails. Occasionally our used Manhattan barrels will go to Exit 6 to age a special brew, or to VB’s for coffee, then return to us for another turn with a Manhattan. Check with your server to see if Josh has anything special available! We use Buffalo Trace as the house pour in all bourbon cocktails unless otherwise specified.

    Schlafly Pale Ale
    Schlafly's flagship Pale Ale is a smooth, balanced, copper-colored session beer with mildly spiced flavor and aroma from the East Kent Goldings hops.

    Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat
    Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer is a lively, refreshing ale with a natural citrusy flavor and distinctive cloudy appearance.

    Boulevard Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale
    Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

    Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout
    Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream.

    Left Hand Sawtooth Ale
    Super smooth nutty malt flavors balanced by herbal hops.

    Boulevard Bully Porter
    The intense flavors of dark-roasted malt in Boulevard’s rendition of the classic English porter are perfectly balanced by a generous and complex hop character. Bully! Porter’s robust nature makes it the ideal companion to a variety of foods, from seafood to chocolate.

    Boulevard 6th Glass
    This quadrupel ale, also meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass...

    Sam Adams Seasonal
    Check in throughout the year to see the rotation.

    Stone Go To IPA
    This beer is an Alpha-acid-rich beer that fans can enjoy more of without missing out on the assertive hop character you, like us, crave. So, sit back and go two with your new everyday go-to IPA and bask along with us in the glory of the almighty hop.

    Great Divide Brewing Company Claymore
    Named for a medieval Scottish sword, CLAYMORE SCOTCH ALE is our tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. This malty, deep-ruby beauty features lots of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile, and a subtle warming character.

    O’Fallon Fitz’s Hard Root Beer
    This fine craft ale is brewed with the same roots, herbs and spices found in the iconic Fitz’s Root Beer enjoyed by folks in the midwest since 1947. Not too sweet, not too strong, just a tasty balance of fresh brewed ale and the classic flavors of Fitz’s Root Beer all in one bottle.

    O’Fallon Wheach

    Stiegl Radler
    The Stiegl-Radler Grapefruit is a mix of Stiegl-Goldbräu and fruit juice that is invariably natural and has no artificial sweeteners added to it.
