Wow. It’s been a while. Sorry about that, but so much has happened in the last month! Let’s see… Nick’s cat went on a diet, our Resident Long Haired Hawaiian left to visit the homeland—oh, and we opened the restaurant! That’s right, for those who haven’t been in yet, we opened our doors on the 26th of December. We thought it’d make a great late Christmas present to ourselves. Or an early New Year’s present. A belated winter solstice present?
Regardless, Chef David has put together an awesome menu that features loads of local choices and some downright delicious food items. (If you haven’t read our post on him, check it out and get familiar with the man behind the curtain.) So far, fan favorites have been the Farmstead Pizza, Stout Battered Fish and Chips and, of course, our burgers. Especially the Chefslayer (featuring a fried egg and IPA onions, served with a side of Food Coma) and the Bacon and Bacon Burger (we weren’t content with just bacon, so we made a bacon jam as well, because, really, the best pairing with bacon is always more bacon).
We’re also featuring 20 beers and ciders on tap, 11 wines on tap, a stellar handcrafted specialty cocktail list and a full bar for all of you drinking connoisseurs out there. So far, our flagship Common Block Pale Ale has received rave reviews, and we’re about to start brewing more beers! Keep an eye out in February for our Common Block IPA and Porter.
We’ve been so excited with the support that Medford and our surrounding communities have shown, and if you’ve already visited us, we thank you! We’re humbled and grateful for the enthusiasm and feedback from our guests as we get this brewpub show on the road. And if you haven’t visited, all we can say is…
What are you waiting for?!
