As many of you know, this past Saturday we celebrated our one year anniversary with Bring Out Your Dead (cognac barrel aged imperial stout), the first of two exclusive beer releases to commemorate the event. We were excited to feature such a labour intensive beer on draft, but we wanted to let everyone know that in addition to the delicious beer offerings in the brewpub, we’ve made some big changes to the food.
For the past few months we’ve been renovating big time — not just adding more fermenters, but also the makings of a commercial kitchen. We were able to get by on a limited menu of meats and cheeses for the first while, working with a teeny tiny residential stove, but our (selfish) appetites for fried chicken and the desire to provide more options for diners won out. We caved in the best way possible, and after much preparation and very difficult tasting meetings, we’ve rolled out an exciting new food menu.
Because technology isn’t quite at the point of scratch ‘n sniff for the computer screen, I’m gonna provide for you thousands of ‘words’ with these tantalizing pictures. Take a seat, get a bowl of popcorn, and hunker down for a special screening of Bellwoods Kitchen: Love In The Time Of Fried Things.
Whether it’s the pork belly with clams, the panko crusted coconut tofu, or a simple bowl of fries with rosemary, thyme, and shredded toscano cheese, theses dishes are delicious and full of integrity. We’ve taken the time to source produce from small farm collectives throughout the Kawarthas, meat from Sanagan’s, and seafood from Hooked. We’re so passionate about craft beer, and it only makes sense that we want the food we serve to be all about that same level of quality. Rest assured, these chickens were roaming free and going to bars as they pleased before ending up on your plate.
So if you get home from work tonight and you don’t feel like cooking, I know a place that’ll set you up. Or, if you’re at work right now looking at these pictures and thinking they look delicious, you can blow off your kitchen and we won’t say a word. Your secret’s safe with us.
