In 2010, local restaurateurs Dean and Sue Gonsior opened FIREBREW Wine Bar & Bistro, an eatery named after their passion for the taste an open flame imparts upon bistro fare and the frothiness of a handcrafted witch’s brew. The menu brims with sizzling pizzas, hot sandwiches, and other entrees that emerge fresh from a Fire Deck oven visible from the dining room. To complement the flame-kissed grub, a bar equipped with flat-screen televisions stocks a multitude of draft and bottled beers from breweries that include Sam Adams, Yuengling, and New Belgium, and self-service wine and beer stations allow patrons to sample 24 wines and a selection of craft beers. While dining, guests can prepare for personal battles by enjoying the views or staring into the flickering flames of the encased fires that line the outdoor patio.
