- $15 for one silver ticket to the fifth annual beer fest on June 20 ($30 value)
Elgin Public House
Visitors to the Elgin Public House step into a cozy interior reinforced by exposed-brick walls. A culinary crew revives weary locals with a menu of hearty pub eats and a beer selection of 87 varieties imported from across Europe and the United States. Chefs use certified Angus beef for burgers, stuff pork chops full of blue-cheese cornbread, and hand-cut steaks in house after aging them a minimum of two weeks to ensure optimal flavor and prevent them from prank-calling patrons.
A calendar of weekly events keeps things lively with regular offerings such as Wednesday-night trivia, Friday-night fish fries, and daily specials. One Tuesday each month, limited-seating dinner-pairing events offer six-course meals, with each course accompanied by an alcoholic beverage, such as red wine or tequila.
