    Stopped here for a cocktail and dessert: Red's Rye and the Ginger Beerchetta. Good ginger beer pairing I think.

    Highly recommend 21st Amendment ale. Very drinkable. Jambalaya is good, but not nearly as spicy as they think. It is Iowa spicy, which translates to medium at best.

    The Graziano Italia takes its name from the Graziano’s Italian sausage used on the build. Add to that pepperoni, mozzarella, and a fire-roasted marinara sauce. The end result is mouthwatering!
