Hours Of Operation

Monday-Sunday 11:00a - 10:00p

Featured Pairing:
Windansea Wheat &
Korean bbq pupusa

The beer: Windansea Wheat

Windansea Wheat is our Hefeweizen brewed true to the Bavarian style, using 50% malted wheat and Noble Tettnanger hops. A centuries old strain of German weissbier yeast lends its trademark banana and clove flavors that linger through a refreshingly smooth finish.

The Food: Korean bbq pupusa

Thick corn tortilla stuffed with jack cheese, topped with Korean BBQ chicken, cilantro crema, shredded cabbage, spicy hot sauce, radish, and sesame.


Korean BBQ meets Salvadorian street dish meets Bavarian Hefezweizen. (Totally normal, right?). The sweetness of the beer tames the spicy hot sauce and accentuates the corn flavors of the tortilla. Windansea's unique weissbier yeast amplifies the hoisin characteristics in the chicken. In this pairing, it's all about contrast.
