With all that amazing beer, you’ll be ravenous for something to accompany the revelry. We keep it simple when it comes to food: big flavours, hearty servings, quality local producers, and a menu to match the beer. Our signature Onglet grill will be back again this year (would it be the same without it?) but we’ll be bringing a few fresh options to our food market too.
