It’s nice to kick back with a bottle in the comfort of your living room. But trouble arises when you start doing it frequently. In your pajamas. At noon.
Get off the lonely tip with today’s opening of Hawthornes beer boutique.
The new bottle shop, market, and deli has all the comforts of home, including a welcoming neighborhood vibe and wood-burning fireplace.
The real draw’s the beer: sixteen craft-brewed draft selections (available in growlers) plus hard-to-find bottles like Founders Kentucky Breakfast, Bruery Levuds Batch 1, and Russian River Temptation. Gourmet soups, panini, and a weekend brunch with omelets and creamed chipped beef will help line your belly.
Sticking to local purveyors’ goods like Claudio’s cheese, Carangi Bakery bread, and One Village Coffee may, of course, be the first of many steps.
Like, say, twelve.
