Eating local produce keeps you informed about your food, since you can meet the farmer that grew it and visit the campus where it went to high school. Graduate to a better dinner with this Groupon.
$19 for Up to $40 Worth of Farm-to-Table Bar Food and Beer
Groupon holders get $40 worth of food and drinks when they come in on Monday–Thursday and $35 worth of food and drinks on Friday–Sunday.
The menu includes fried firecracker shrimp served with hot sauce and celery sticks and burgers topped with bacon, goat cheese, or whiskey sauce, paired with tater tots, hand-cut fries, or sweet-potato fries ($7–$9). After stretching pizza dough by hand, chefs pile on veggies and meat, such as peppers and smoked chicken short ribs ($10+). They also offer a selection of housemade brews ($5.75–$6), as well as suds in cans, bottles, and on tap ($3.75–$11.25).
Nevin's Brewing Company
Unsurprisingly, beer plays a big role at Nevin's Brewing Company. Their brewmeisters craft a panoply of suds that range from an IPA to a rich, hearty stout. When they finish a batch of ale, they could easily throw their spent grains away–unceremoniously in the garbage or ceremoniously on their 3,000th customer. Instead, they take their used barley and hops to local farmers, who use the nutrient-rich grains as compost for their fields and feed for their livestock. Later on, Nevin's chefs return to the very farms they nourished to buy beef and vegetables to make sustainably-crafted burgers, ribs, and salads that can be washed down with cool, refreshing beer.
