Local Beef. No Steroids. No Additives. Sustainable.

The beef that is served on your plate was fed the grains that made the glass of beer in your hand.

Our beef is locally sourced from 10 miles down the road in Lakewood Ranch. Our buddy Ryan, a 3rd generation Manatee County farmer, has been picking up our spent grains from brewing beer and feeding them to his cattle since we opened. We are proud and excited to serve his locally raised, sustainable beef without hormones, steroids or other additives in our brewpub.
