Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon:. for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Brew 22 American Tavern.
Brew 22's executive chef plucks local ingredients to craft a menu filled with savory twists on classic tavern fare. The bulbous Brew burger ($12) busts up buns as proudly as the Hulk in home-economics class with a juicy cargo of Chapel Ridge Farms beef, Amish cheddar, and a fried egg. Roasted salmon ($16) walks a cedar plank before plummeting into pools of sweet-corn pudding and tomato confit, as hand-piped pork sausage ($14) slow-dances to symphonies of sauerkraut and an encore of roasted peaches. Cap meals with the chef's chocolate pretzel bathed in fudge and warm rivers of caramel sauce ($5).
Diners take advantage of Brew 22's open kitchen to watch staff engage in culinary play as spectacular as a nest of Oompa-Loompas, or move to the tavern's bar area, where a bank of televisions showcase athletic goings-on. 'Tenders treat guests to a lengthy menu, which, while not included in your Groupon, is jovially crowded with 12 draft craft beers.
