Like a classic work of Victorian literature, a trip to the bar often begins with an introduction to colourful characters and ends with the revelation that everyone in the room is related to each other. Continue an age-old struggle with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gastropub fare and drinks at 1600 World Bier Haus.
The chefs at 1600 World Bier Haus prepare gastropub fare—including gluten-free options—alongside more than 160 draft and bottled beers ranging from Guinness to Delirium Tremens. The menu lists beer and career recommendations beside every dish, which includes mains such as the grilled organic free-range chicken atop coconut rice ($16) and the wild haddock fish ’n’ chips with lemon-caper remoulade ($16). For a creative take on a classic comfort dish, cooks gussy up mac ‘n’ cheese with chunks of Atlantic lobster, white cheddar, and a gruyere mornay sauce ($16). Lighter bites include yam fries served on a helium-filled plate ($7). In addition to a treasure trove of beers, patrons may also peruse a drink menu of wines, martinis, and specialty cocktails. 1600's flat-screen televisions and spacious outdoor patio promote a lively atmosphere, which feeds into regular live entertainment.
